Library Haul (a.k.a. Never take me to the library if you’re expecting a small load)

These are all the books from my recent trip(s) to the library.  All of them happen to be YA this time around, so that’ll likely be my next stretch of reviews.  Two of these I had as galleys (both Sarah McCarry books), but I didn’t get a chance to read them. The rest are new reads to me.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Bookworm Delights

Hi all, it’s been a while since I’ve done a Top Ten Tuesday post, but I couldn’t resist the pull of the topic for this week. As per usual, this meme is brought to you by the Broke and the Bookish.  Be sure to visit over there for the prompts and other people’s respective lists.

It takes a bit getting used to because you’re navigating between three different perspective points told in first person (in the print book – they’re distinguished between different fonts, but in the audiobook I bought from Audible, it’s heavily reliant on the intonation of the narrator. Steve West does a fantastic job with the narration, but I still had to pay attention to remember who was narrating).

Review: Never Let You Go (Never Tear Us Apart #2) by Monica Murphy

Quick review for a quick read. Monica Murphy’s “Never Let You Go” kind of disappointed me, considering it covers such a heavy, emotional topic and set of events.
