Review: Dear Heartbreak

Happy Thursday! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy. ❤
This morning I’m back with a review of Dear Heartbreak, a non-fiction anthology written by a group of YA authors.
I hope you enjoy! 😉


Dear Heartbreak by Heather Demetrios (and others)
Genre: Young Adult – Anthology, Non-Fiction
Pages: 304
Publication Date: December 2018
My Rating: 2.75 of 5 stars
Read December 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
This is a book about the dark side of love: the way it kicks your ass, tears out your heart, and then forces you to eat it, bite by bloody bite. If you’ve felt this way, you’re not alone…
In this powerful collection, YA authors answer real letters from teens all over the world about the dark side of love: dating violence, break-ups, cheating, betrayals, and loneliness. This book contains a no-holds-barred, raw outpouring of the wisdom these authors have culled from mining their own hearts for the fiction they write. Their responses are autobiographical, unflinching, and filled with love and hope for the anonymous teen letter writers.
Featuring Adi Alsaid, Becky Albertalli, Libba Bray, Heather Demetrios, Amy Ewing, Zach Fehst, Gayle Forman, Corey Ann Haydu, Varian Johnson, A.S. King, Nina LaCour, Kim Liggett, Kekla Magoon, Sarah McCarry, Sandhya Menon, Cristina Moracho, Jasmine Warga, and Ibi Zoboi.

Review: Drama

Good evening and happy Friday! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy!
Today I’m back with a new book review (finally). This is the first book that I’ve been able to get myself through in almost a month, which is the most frustrating thing ever! I don’t think I’ve ever been in such a terrible slump before. I had fun with this graphic novel though!!
I hope you enjoy!! 🙂


Drama by Raina Telgemeier
Genre: Middle Grade / Young Adult – Graphic Novel, Contemporary
Pages: 238
Publication Date: September 2012
My Rating: 2.75 of 5 stars
Read June 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
PLACES, EVERYONE!
Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school’s production of Moon Over Mississippi, she can’t really sing. Instead she’s the set designer for the drama department stage crew, and this year she’s determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn’t know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen. And when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!

When Darwin’s father went to prison for assault, his mom decided it was time to move him from his inner-city school to the elite Norfolk Academy. It was supposed to be a brand-new start for him. But old instincts die hard, and Dar is used to fighting for everything. Convinced by a new friend to take part in an illegal fight club, Dar starts competing in no-holds-barred matches between students. He quickly rises to become the best in the ring. When one match goes too far and a student is almost killed, Dar faces a choice. Everyone tells him he’s a fighter, but he needs to decide for himself–who is he, and what is he fighting for?
