BAMF Review: Taming of the Drew by Stephanie Kate Strohm

See our interview with Stephanie about what she likes best about Shakespeare and see pictures from her drama camp days! As a disclaimer, we received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. We both really liked this book. After last month’s book that we weren’t really into, it was kinda nice to fangirl together over a fantastic book. THE TAMING OF THE DREW fulfilled a lot of the checkmarks we needed to really enjoy a book and we would highly recommend it. This was a real character study of a novel and we really enjoyed […]

We really did not like this one. We both rated it two stars and had a lot of issues with it. There were barely any redeeming qualities to this one. Jamie really liked that the girls were supportive of one another in their emotions and feelings; however, they were always discussing boys rather than how their lives were affected. Granted, Wyneth’s fiancé was eaten by the beast and Aerity had to marry someone she didn’t necessarily love, but there was so much more happening that they could have discussed. Dani felt sorry for the King because he had to do […]

We gave a quick shoutout to FairyLoot, a new YA monthly subscription box launching next month from the UK (but shipping internationally)! Go check it out! THE LOVE THAT SPLIT THE WORLD is a genre bending Young Adult novel that we mostly enjoyed. All three of us really liked the creation and Native American stories that were woven into the narrative, as we found that aspect unique and a creative way to move the plot forward. Also, they were generally interesting to read and made for the most interesting part of the novel. Jamie really liked that they foreshadowed what […]

BAMF Review: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

BAMF Review: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Posted January 30, 2016 by BAMF in BAMF Reviews, Reviews / 0 Comments

For our first ever BAMF Review, we decided to read Rainbow Rowell’s CARRY ON. We approached the book with different past experiences. All of us loved Harry Potter, which is who Simon Snow, the main character, is based on. However, only Iris had read Fangirl, where Simon Snow was first introduced. Dani had read only one other Rainbow Rowell book, ELEANOR & PARK, while Jamie hadn’t read any. Jamie, however, was a huuuuge Harry/Draco fanfic fan, and, as you’ll see, this pairing is what inspired the book. We all agreed that the book was a bit slow and confusing to start. The story begins […]
