5 Addicting Sci-Fi & Fantasy Duologies

forest-438432_960_720
by Danielle Finnegan

I LOVE the duology trend in YA right now, especially for sci-fi and fantasy. One book is never enough, but waiting for a series to be completed can be maddening. I just want to know what happens next, and not die of anticipation before I can find out how everything concludes! That’s why I think duologies […]

Best Paranormal Romances

Paranormal Romance
by Janine Perez

There is genuinely nothing I love better than a good romance. The attraction, tension, denial, and inevitable misunderstandings are all moments in a book that I live for. Plus, nothing makes me feel all warm and gooey inside like the feeling of happiness I get when they FINALLY end up together. The only thing that makes this […]

6 Creepy Books Set in Maine

Maine Header
by Sarah Jane Abbott

Maine is one of my favorite places—the intense natural beauty, the tranquility, the lighthouses, the lobster! But somehow, in literature, Maine often winds up being the setting for creepy situations.

You need your central perspective to be the one that heightens the dramatic tension the most, the one that propels the reader along, the one that you care about. But sometimes, there are just too many characters in one book for there to be only […]

10 Books About Discovering Who You Are

Discovering
by Rashika Bahl

I’m of the belief that all YA novels are secretly coming of age novels, but there are definitely some that are extra helpful when you’re trying to figure out who you are. Feeling confused, angry, scared, sad, lost? There’s a book for that (and it’s way more helpful than an app, let me tell you). One book that […]

12 Books for an Epic Summer Escape

Escape
by Janine Perez

Summer is by far my favorite season. For me, it means enjoying the sun, spending time by the pool, playing volleyball on the beach, hanging out with friends, and eating lots of dairy-free ice cream (shout out to my fellow lactose-intolerant people)! But summer isn’t without its faults. When I was younger, I occasionally found myself alone because a majority […]
