No Cheers for The Cheerleaders

The Mystery Week on Goodreads ended yesterday (or earlier today, I'm not sure anymore). And my Mystery Week ends today, with this post about The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to squeeze in one more mystery novel before my self-imposed deadline because Sadie was still looming over my head … Continue reading No Cheers for The Cheerleaders

Sadie is for ‘The Girls’

Before anything else, Sadie is not your usual mystery, suspense-thriller novel. It's not the kind that's longing for a big reveal. It's basically a true crime but fiction. Although you may not know it at the time yet or maybe you're in denial (just like I was), you already know the ending. Trigger warning. Trigger … Continue reading Sadie is for ‘The Girls’

Mystery Week Lives On with ‘If You’re Out There’

Curious. The whole time I was reading this, I was nothing but curious. Intensely curious? Can you even say that? Well, if you can, that's what I was. I slept last night after finishing half of the book and at some point during my sleep, I think I had dreamt of this. More like I … Continue reading Mystery Week Lives On with ‘If You’re Out There’

Never Never… Seriously

I haven’t finished—started, actually—a mystery novel after Verity but since that book reminded me of the disaster that is this series, I’m gonna talk about this instead. I read the books waaaay back in 2016, though, but it feels like it was just yesterday (now that it was unearthed from the depths of my memory). … Continue reading Never Never… Seriously

Two Can Keep A Secret… If One is Dead

Last week, I found out that Mx Karen wrote a sequel to One of Us is Lying, a Young Adult Mystery novel that I loved and read back in 2018. Needless to say, I was excited. But after having read the book, all I felt was extreme disappointment. It wasn't at all what I was … Continue reading Two Can Keep A Secret… If One is Dead

March 2020 Book Roundup

Reading truly is a funny thing. One minute I'm so into it, then the next I'm just tired of it all even though I've loved reading since elementary (I remember going through my cousin's Nancy Drew books collection). Or maybe reading isn't the funny one and it's actually me, the person whose attention span is … Continue reading March 2020 Book Roundup

Another Unpopular Opinion – 'On the Fence' is Ridiculously Terrible

If you want to be constantly cringing while reading, then by all means, go ahead and read this book. I swear to god, I could not stop being annoyed at this even if I so desperately wanted to. And I really wanted to love this because once again, it seemed like everybody else loved it … Continue reading Another Unpopular Opinion – 'On the Fence' is Ridiculously Terrible

Okay, Jenny Han, I See You

You know how when you're reading a book and imagining the story in your head, you put some sort of color into their world as well? Like if it's a crime/mystery novel, it would be like monochromatic scheme even if the setting is during the day? Or if it's a young adult novel about teen … Continue reading Okay, Jenny Han, I See You
