The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen Book Review

The Last Time We Were UsA passionate summer love story about a girl, her childhood best friend recently released from juvie, and the small-town lies that have kept them apart. A teen romance debut with a dark edge.Liz Grant is about to have the summer of her life. She and her friend MacKenzie are getting invited to all the best parties, and with any luck, Innis Taylor, the most gorgeous guy in Bonneville, will be her boyfriend before the Fourth of July. Local teen convict released early.
Jason Sullivan wasn’t supposed to come back from juvie. A million years ago, he was her best friend, but that was before he ditched her for a different crowd. Before he attacked Innis’s older brother, leaving Skip’s face burned and their town in shock. “Everything is not what you think.”
Liz always found it hard to believe what they said about Jason, but all of Bonneville thinks he’s dangerous. If word gets out she’s seeing him, she could lose everything. But what if there’s more to that horrible night than she knows? And how many more people will get hurt when the truth finally comes out?
“You’re the one person who believes in me.”
Leah Konen’s southern romance swelters with passion as it explores the devastating crush of lies, the delicate balance of power and perception, and one girl’s journey to find herself while uncovering the secrets of so many others.

Hi Again: A Blogging & Life Update

Hi! It's been a long time since I've written a post and as you may have noticed, I've been mostly absent from the blog this year. Starting college last year, I expected to still continue on blogging, maybe less frequently, but things just didn't pan out the way I hoped. I was bogged down by the stress of school and working and my blog took a back-burner, while I still felt I had to meet all of my blogging obligations. I got stressed and over the past few months, I've struggled with whether or not I want to continue with blogging in general. Blogging has been a passion of mine for so long and I've loved so many of the experiences and friends I've made through it. At the same time, I felt guilty for not being able to read or make as many blogging commitments as I used to. After thinking for some time, I've decided that I'm going to continue on with blogging and just not put as much pressure on myself and perhaps change my style of reviews and incorporate more unique posts in. I've also been considering Booktubing. I figure this summer will be a good time to figure everything out and hopefully finally get a new redesign! For all those who have stuck with the blog, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I really appreciate it and I hope you guys love the content to come <3 




What's Left Of Me by Kat Zhang Book Review

I should not exist. But I do.
Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t . . .
For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable-hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet . . . for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.
