ISAN by Mary Ting

I was so excited to read Mary Ting’s newest book ISAN (International Sensory Assassins Network) because it’s been a while since I read a good dystopian YA. I also loved the idea of women assassins kicking butt and taking names. It was a great read and I can’t wait to chat more about it. Here’s…

The Summer of Us by Cecilia Vinesse

While this book talks about young people and their futures, I can’t help but to call them “kids.” I don’t think it has anything to do with them, but the fact that I’m old and anyone under 30 is a kid to me now. Here’s more about the book Aubrey and Rae have been planning…

I don’t know about you, but I need a break from the world. Sometimes the news or my life or even my reads get so heavy that I need to step away from everything and just enjoy myself. Self care is a real thing and something I try to always keep in mind. That’s why…
