Review: Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

It’s like some of us are chasing after our nightmares the way other people chase dreams.”

– Taylor Jenkins Reid

I opened up this book, read the Author’s Note and then opened to the first section and thought “there is no way in hell I can read a book written in interview manuscript form.” I was so wrong. I absolutely loved this novel and I don’t think any other format would have worked at all. Every character was an unreliable narrator and this format allowed you to see situations from everyone’s perspectives while also seeing what else was going on in their lives that other characters had no inkling of. Every character had their own story to tell about how it all went down.

Review: When Summer Ends by Jessica Pennington

“I’ll let fate decide – one coin flip at a time”

– Jessica Pennington

This was such a cute read that will be perfect for anyone looking for that summer read! It’s a story about how life may not go just the way you thought/planned for, but how fate might have something even better in store. Both of the main characters experience significant changes in their lives and the story really showed them figuring out who they were through these changes. The main characters were really relatable and had a ton of character growth throughout the book.

Review: King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

“The monster is me and I am the monster”

– Leigh Bardugo, King of Scars

I first ran into Bardugo when I came across Six of Crows (my all time favorite) a few years ago. The world and characters she had created enchanted me and I needed more as soon as humanly possibly. I moved onto the Grishaverse hoping to cure my Six of Crows hangover but found myself more intrigued by the side characters than with the main character Alina and her character arc. I needed to know more about the dashing pirate king and the moody Grisha Squaller that had been so idolized by Nina. The answer to my prayers was King of Scars and was one of my other most anticipated releases this year. While KoS didn’t quite disappoint it didn’t fully satisfy me either. Beware of some spoilers ahead!
