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!
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
