BAMF Review: The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry

Posted February 27, 2016 by BAMF in BAMF Reviews, Reviews / 6 Comments

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 […]

About Convince Me To Read Reviews While we all have fairly similar tastes, sometimes we need a little push to read a certain book. The Convince Me to Read Review will be a review of the novel plus a section on why we think the others would enjoy it. It may lead to a Two Peas in a Pod Review! Jamie’s review Okay so I am on a book buying ban until 2017. Everyone knows this. But I made a slight variation from this plan because I was meeting Victoria Schwab! I knew I would be buying this one anyway […]

The Convince Me to Read Review will be a review of the novel plus a section on why we think the others would enjoy it. It may lead to a Two Peas in a Pod Review!   Iris’s Review FRONT LINES is the first book by Michael Grant that I’ve read. When I read about the premise for this book I was sold. I mean, it seemed like such an original and intriguing take on World War II. After reading […]

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 […]
