Mockingbird Book Review

Being head to head with thousands of amazing titles published in 2010—’Room’ being a major frontrunner—I can safely conclude that Mockingbird doesn’t disappoint. Kathryn Erskine definitely has amazing flexibility in her style of writing. Judging from her interesting word selection and world construction through first person; it’s very likely to presume a fifth grader had…

Ada’s Rules Book Review

I have to confess, the main idea of this book was good. The moral message within was also one to inspire, yet perhaps Alice could’ve conveyed it a lot better. Let me imply my some reasons why; Yes, I get that this is a tale that solely revolves around the quest of a fifty year…

Cold Kill Book Review

A Long Way Down Book Review

Paper Towns Book Review

Light and Entertaining Paper towns is a very comedic and thought-provoking read. John Green did a wonderful job in conveying humor and developing his characters; I agree he’s managed to evoke them to life. The overall concept is very new and gripping and he’s built a solid foundation to begin with. Whereas, coming in terms…

A Monster Calls Book Review

Absolutely outstanding. I vaguely remember reading this book several years ago. I was very young then, and admittedly, this book was one of the first few that instilled a passion within me for the artistry of reading and writing, therefore kudos to Patrick Ness for his influence. It’s the type of book you’ll find difficult…
