Five Geek-tastic Stars for Ashley Poston’s Geekerella

Geekerella will be my first gushing review of the 2017 year. If you consider yourself part of “geek life,” have a fandom you are particularly attached to, or just fancy yourself a big ol’ nerd that loves Young Adult fiction, this is the book for you. Geekerella is equal parts sugary sweet, endearing, and an out of this world perfect read.

Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten

The Marketing on Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten was the only reason I picked up this book. I'm not usually a reader of YA Mystery, which is usually angsty and shallow.
