Review of Wild Blue Wonder by Carlie Sorosiak (digital arc)




Wild Blue Wonder by Carlie Sorosiak


There are two monsters in this story. One of them is me.

Ask anyone in Winship, Maine, and they’ll tell you the summer camp Quinn’s family owns is a magical place. Paper wishes hang from the ceiling. Blueberries grow in the dead of winter. According to local legend, a sea monster even lurks off the coast. Mostly, there’s just a feeling that something extraordinary could happen there.

Like Quinn falling in love with her best friend, Dylan.

After the accident, the magic drained from Quinn’s life. Now Dylan is gone, the camp is a lonely place, and Quinn knows it’s her fault.

But the new boy in town, Alexander, doesn’t see her as the monster she believes herself to be. As Quinn lets herself open up again, she begins to understand the truth about love, loss, and monsters—real and imagined.


Expected publication: June 26th 2018 by HarperTeen

Review of The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde (digital arc)




The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde


A teen rockstar has to navigate family, love, coming out, and life in the spotlight after being labeled the latest celebrity trainwreck in Jen Wilde’s quirky and utterly relatable novel. 

As a rock star drummer in the hit band The Brightsiders, Emmy King’s life should be perfect. But there’s nothing the paparazzi love more than watching a celebrity crash and burn. When a night of partying lands Emmy in hospital and her girlfriend in jail, she’s branded the latest tabloid train wreck.

Luckily, Emmy has her friends and bandmates, including the super-swoonworthy Alfie, to help her pick up the pieces of her life. She knows hooking up with a band member is exactly the kind of trouble she should be avoiding, and yet Emmy and Alfie Just. Keep. Kissing.

Will the inevitable fallout turn her into a clickbait scandal (again)? Or will she find the strength to stand on her own?

Edelweiss/Netgalley Update (books I still have to read)


I thought it was time to do an update on all the books I still have to read from Edelweiss and Netgalley (books not out yet).  I still have some pretty old books on netgalley and I’m not sure when I’ll get to those.  So these are just the ones coming out this year.   I did get a few late downloads, so there may be one or two that won’t get read before the release date (May).  There are too many books to share the descriptions on this time.

I generally try to read and review the books the month before they come out.  This schedule has been working pretty well for me so far.





Wild Blue Wonder by Carlie Sorosiak    Release date:  6/26

A Thousand Beginnings and Endings multiple authors  Release date:  6/26
