It’s been a year since episode one, but I’ve been having trouble making videos–not reading! Last year I started a reading challenge to read at least one biography on every American President, and I’m really getting there! Enjoy episode 2 on John Tyler to Rutherford B. Hayes (minus a few because they’re playing hard to get…).
This book was pitched as Mulan meets Project Runway. How exactly does one resist such a pitch? Hint: You can’t.
I got this book as an ARC. That doesn’t mean I read it before it came out. Still, this series is by the people behind my favorite YA scifi of all time, the Illuminae Files. I screamed when I picked up the ARC. Did I enjoy the book? Well, that’s what the video is for.
I have thoughts and feelings and lots of SQUEES for this book. Also, I have some critical comments in here somewhere. Getting back in the swing of this reviewing thing!
Possibly my favorite thing about this is that Michaela apologizes in the video for not getting the video up on the channel for like 3 months and now I’m posting this here months after that so like listen. We are sometimes overwhelmed by life. Anyways! Here’s us talking about what we think is one of the best true crime books in the ENTIRE GENRE!
I released this video on the channel when the book actually wasn’t out yet but forgot to post it here. Listen. I’m a fallible human being. Anyways. This is one of the ARCs from BEA that I wasn’t sure was worth getting. After all, the author wasn’t there and I sat in line for like 2 hours. Was it worth it, you ask? YES, YES IT WAS. Why? That’s what the video is for!
I am mad about 3 things. Very, very mad. I also give this book 4.5 stars. How does this figure, you ask? Guess you’re going to have to watch the review to find out!
I’m actually reviewing a BEA ARC on time! I give this one 3 stars for being an enjoyable adventure but not having as much world building or character development as I would like.
This book is an incredible intersectional story about a Jewish African American girl who may or may not be bisexual with a white step-brother recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It also has some issues with bi and pan representation. Watch to see!
I just finished listening to The Doubt Factory by Paulo Bacigalupi and BOY do I have thoughts. I was love-love-loving the audiobook … until I tried to finish it reading the book itself and oh boy. Then I started realizing some serious flaws. How did I miss them? Let’s discuss.
