IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
The End Games by T. Michael Martin 4 stars
That’s the work of a fantastic writing, Mr. Martin: making me so deeply engrossed that I feel as though I’m the one being chased. I loved it.
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau 2 stars
In my eyes, The Testing is The Hunger Games meets Divergent meets Battle Royale. In the worst way possible.
Spirit by Brigid Kemmerer 4.5 stars
It’s no secret that I love this series. And by love, I mean flaily arms, keysmashes, and more exclamation points than WordPress can handle.
Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin 4 stars
Every character felt raw and open and real.
Rebel Spirits by Lois Ruby 3.5 stars
Allow me to fly my bias flag: if a book deals with any of the battles (particularly Gettysburg), you can bet I’ll be reading it.
