What a quirky, fun, interesting little piece.

“Straight girl with a crush on me, I’m sorry if you were having visions of a long romance and eventual marriage to the only guy you’ve ever known who would also rather watch episode after episode of Gilmore Girls reruns than football or a Transformers marathon.”

My Fairy Godmother is a Drag Queen is very (and when I say very, I mean very) loosely based off Cinderella. We follow Chris, who after the death of his father lives an almost self-imposed Cinderella-esque lifestyle with his step-family. His stepmother and stepsister have set their eyes on almost-royalty J.J. Kennerly in hopes of restoring their name and fortune. All Chris wants is to attend the Autumnal Ball with his family, and with the little help of drag queen Coco Chanel Jones, Chris might just make it… and with the help of a rogue shoe, snag J.J. for himself.

I really like middle grade novels, and I think The Impossible Fortress helped me figure out why.

“It was by far the riskiest, most dangerous, and dumbest thing he’d ever done—and I am talking about a guy who once ate a strip of staples on a dare.”

We’re not in this to win a few battles. We’re in it to win the war.”

There are some who say, “If you’ve read one YA book, you’ve read ’em all.” Despite myself, I can’t help but say I agree. But the thing is, sometimes it works.

Trigger Warning for rape. *This review previously appeared on my first blog.*

“Why would [they] rape anybody? They can both have any girl they want.”

Every once in a while, you read a book that really changes the game. For me, What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler is that book. I just need to tell everyone about it.

After a wild night at John Doone’s party, Kate can only barely remember what happened. Shots with Stacey Stallard, her childhood friend Ben Cody driving her home. But when a picture of Stacey passed out, hanging over Deacon Mills’s shoulder appears online, Kate begins to question everything that happened that night. Especially when Stacey files charges against the boys, and the whole town erupts into controversy.

Hello, friends. Welcome to a segment I like to call Boring: A Novel, Circus Edition!

Now this may seem a little harsh, but I feel like it is justified because I was lied to.

“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.”

Last week, I picked up The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Though I was enjoying it, it was moving a little slowly for me, and I knew I just needed a short, quick, cute book to read to get my groove back. I’d recently stumbled across this novel and knew it would be perfect.

Nonsense. You don’t decide to be gay without a boy, that’s just poor planning.
