Today’s review is for Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire
I absolutely loved this book. There was something so heartbreakingly beautiful about this book. One of my favorite things about this book is that it is primarily Jack’s story, and how she has to save the Moors which is her home. I also love how Jack’s friends risked their lives to help her, that’s a sign of true friendship right there. The aspect of adventure and going on a quest made this such an exciting read.
Today’s book review is for Belichick and Brady by Michael Holley. Michael Holley is a local author to me.
This is such an insightful book, not only about Belichick and Brady but the team as a whole. I found the information about the draft process, how Belichick handled letting players go, and how those players felt to be very interesting. It was also interesting to read about how the dynamics of the team shifted after Bledsoe went down with the injury and when Brady stepped in. I am so happy that I finally read this book after so long.
Today’s book review is for Moonshot by Alessandra Torre.
I’ve never read a sports romance book before, so this book was way out of left field for me (baseball pun intended). However, I absolutely love baseball, and I loved this book. Dare I say it, I even enjoyed the romance aspect of this book. I did not like Ty and Tobey together, their relationship seemed extremely forced and unnatural, on the other hand, I absolutely loved Chase and Ty. What made this book more interesting was the fact that there was a murder mystery aspect to it, and I loved the way this book ended.
Today’s book review is for Lobizona by Romina Garber.
*Disclaimer 1: I received this book for review from NetGalley, in no way shape or form does this affect my opinion.
*Disclaimer 2: I am not Latinx, I highly suggest seeking own voices reviews.
After having read and loved the Zodiac Series, I was so excited to see that Romina was starting a new series. This book touches on extremely relevant and tough topics of illegal immigration and deportation. Lobizona is a great Urban Fantasy novel, it takes place in Miami and another fantasy realm with Brujas and Werewolves. This is a story about equality, fighting, which are summed up in one of my favorite quotes “Gender equality and freedom of lifestyle are battles I can’t take on yet, because first I need to win a different war: The right to exist.” The reveal at the end was one that I didn’t see coming and really took me by surprise. Lobizona is such a beautiful new novel in a new series that I can’t wait to read more from.
Today’s review is going to be for The BFG by Roald Dahl.
I am ashamed to say that I never read this when I was younger, but I’m so glad that I read it now. This is such a cute story with the most unlikely friendship. I also loved the language of the BFG and how all his words were jumbled but they still made sense. And I love this quote from the BFG on page 61 (view spoiler) Everything about this quote is very true and really puts things into perspective. There are also references to Jack in the Beanstalk. This is a great children’s book.
