The Beatles and the Historians: An Analysis of Writings about the Fab Four - Erin Torkelson Weber

I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers.

 

When I first started reading this I was not a fan because the introduction was very academic and a bit boring. However, once I got into the different narratives it got so much better. The historiography part was also fascinating. Exploring how history is written is something I just love.

Geekerella - Ashley Poston

This book was so good! I didn’t have high expectations going in but I loved it.

 

It was full of geeky fandom references. It covered a wide range of geekiness from cosplays to cons to fan fiction to fangirls themselves.

 

I also really liked the dual point of view because when it comes to YA romance I always want to know what the guy is thinking.

 

The retelling aspect of this was also spot on. The author translated the Cinderella story to nerd culture perfectly.

 

Lastly, the supporting characters were amazing as well. Sage is pretty damn cool and a great friend.

 

Overall, this is a great book for fangirls (and fanboys).

Lies We Tell Ourselves - Robin Talley

What a powerful read. This book really delved deep into the southern consciousness in regards to integration. I really liked how it explored both sides of the issue and the reasons why people believed what they did.

Curveball: The Year I Lost My Grip - Jordan Sonnenblick

This was a really quick read that I enjoyed. The best parts were the ones that focused on Peter and his grandfather because of all the raw emotion. I was able to relate to those moments so much especially towards the end of the book.

Beautiful Chaos - Alex Tully

I received this book for free through BookLikes’ Giveaways.

 

This was a cute YA romance. Nothing super ground breaking (except for the Cleveland Browns actually having a good season) but still really enjoyable.

the princess saves herself in this one - Amanda Lovelace

This was an amazing read. So powerful and full of raw and real emotion. The first two chapters were really heavy content wise. I particularly loved the last 2 chapters (the queen and you) because they were really inspiring. I loved how feminist it was as well. Overall, an excellent poetry collection.

The Possibility of Somewhere - Julia Day

I received this book for free through Goodreads's First Reads.

 

I liked this book, however, I felt like it didn't quite reach its full potential. This book would have been amazing if it included Ash's perspective. I really wanted to learn more about Ash and his struggles. When I read the synopsis for the book it mentions Ash first then Eden, so I thought it was going to include both perspectives or be told from his perspective.

 

The other thing I didn't like was how it was a bit insta-lovey. They went from hating each other to liking each other really fast.

 

Aside from those things, I did enjoy the book. I liked how class differences were highlighted.
