Guest Post: 5 mini reviews

Guest Post : Emily Meade

Last year I wrote a mini-review of every book I read.  I’m going to give you plenty of books to add to your TBR, Here are mini-reviews of books 21- 25!

Cover of History is All You Left MeBOOK COVER: I am Malala

21. History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera

This one has #ownvoices representation of OCD and an m/m romance and lots of queer characters. It goes between the past (when Griffin’s ex-boyfriend Theo was still alive) and the present, where Griffin’s trying to get over his death. It very much reminded me of The Sidekicks by Will Kostakis, actually.

  1. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

Malala is just such an inspiration. Her autobiography is very politics-heavy, but really, really interesting, and she is my ultimate girl power hero.

  1. Caraval by Stephanie Garber

The hype for this book was unbelievable. Though I enjoyed the magic of Caraval – the games, the colours, the air of mystery – it fell a little flat for me, and I didn’t really connect with the characters.

  1. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

One of the most hypocritical books I’ve ever read, and if you’re looking for NA romance, I would not go to Colleen Hoover. The relationships are pretty toxic and even though they’re gripping books, they always leave me with this really weird, uncomfortable feeling. I do not recommend them.

  1. The Silent Invasion by James Bradley

I don’t really have much good to say about this book – it’s your average dystopian book with a lot of clichés and not much new to add to the genre, unfortunately.
