Synopsis: Mommy blogs are great . . . unless the blog happens to belong to your mom.
Twin sisters Claire & Poppy are accidental social media stars thanks to Mom going viral when they were babies. Now, as teens, they’re expected to contribute by building their own brand.
Thoughts: First off I want to say how much this book blew my mind. I went in thinking this would be a fluffy story and man was I wrong. This book is so much more. There is drama, love, family, and an overarching idea that sometimes life may look bad from your point of view but others may see something else. Perspective. This book has it and it makes you sit up and listen.
Poppy and Claire are sister goals and I will forever root for them.
Should you try?
If you are in the mood to be moved and feel all while getting that warm feeling of love pick up this book.
Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak
Synopsis: The summer after senior year is not going as eighteen-year-old Lu Charles expected: after her longtime boyfriend unexpectedly breaks up with her, Lu can’t write a single word, despite the fact that her college scholarship is tied to her columnist job at hip online magazine Misnomer. Then, she meets Cal.
When I saw the cover for this book and then read the synopsis I figured it would be perfect for me. Who doesn’t want to read about heartbreak and maybe what comes afterwards. It seemed light, fluffy, and uplifting. Sadly it wasn’t. The MC Lu just complains about how awful it was to be broken up with and then continues to bring it up the whole book. I know it’s tough but in the book it becomes almost annoying.
I wanted Cal and Iris to be together, more so there was a happy ending. It didn’t seem right for Lu to be with him, that just feels forced.
Overall I think a plot idea was there the MC just got in the way with all the whining.
Should you try?
Honestly probably not right away. Maybe hold off until it’s on sale or at your library.
Synopsis: It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her.
It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.
Thoughts: Brutal is the first word that comes to mind for this book. It is unapologetic and brutal. There is no sugar coating instead there is blood, pus, and all other sorts of bodily fluids to make you cringe. Add in some girl on girl love and you have a feminist book for the ages.
