    Great debuts make me so happy. Especially when they have fabulous covers, because it makes me hope people will discover the book and read it. Let?s be real: we?re all at least a little bit shallow. I Wanna Be Where You Are has both, and it made me smile pretty much the whole way th...

    E ARC from Edelweiss Enjoyed the premise, but it's more of a YA book. First, there's a lot of high school whining and not getting along with a neighbor boy (who smokes), and then there are a lot of f bombs. Too bad. I liked the idea of going for a ballet audition, and need more ...

    Y'all, this was everything I've ever wanted. Last August I asked people to name some fluffy Black romances that centers on 2 Black teens falling in love. Needless to say, there weren't that many. I don't remember who told me about this book, but I spent everyday after it reminding peop...

    'You have to take hold of the world and demand that it gives you what you want. That's what I do. It doesn't always come easy, regardless of how it looks.' THIS WAS ADORABLE-ST (even though there were a few time when I wanted to just talk a hold of Eli and shake him, boys gah) Ch...

    These are the most positive 3 stars I might have ever given. I enjoyed this novel a lot and there's really nothing I can criticize. It's just very simplistic and didn't do much for me emotionally but I highly recommend it! This is a really fun road trip novel that features all o...

    This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic Nerd Actual Rating: 3.5 Short and Simple Review I have a bit of a soft spot for road trip books, especially those involving hate-to-love relationships. So I of course wanted to read this book. This was exactly the feel-good...

    I was so lucky to get to read this book early, and I read it in one straight sitting. I Wanna Be Where You Are is the perfect summer read! It's breezy and sweetly romantic, but it also is very much about growing up and becoming who you were always meant to be, even if your parents ...

    This book began weak and continued to diminish. I wanted to DNF it but I didn't due to work reasons but man, I was unimpressed with this work. Which makes me sad. Because I liked that dance aspect. I thought Chloe's love of dance was the best part of the whole thing. The entire prem...

    Isn?t the cover just lovely? It makes me think that it wouldn?t be so bad living in a 2D world if everything looked so soft and colourful. Still, let?s keep it 3D for now. This is a decent story. It is fairly short and well-paced so it will most definitely not feel like a cho...

    This was a very sweet, light read. Nothing groundbreaking in terms of plot but still very enjoyable. I liked the characters. I liked the road trip. I was quite satisfied with the ending, I think it fit the story very well. I only wish the reason for Chloe disliking Eli was introduc...
