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 other would enjoy it.   Jamie’s review I downloaded this with an audible credit because I had heard good things about it and wanted to give it a shot. I am trying to read more Adult SFF books this year to coincide with my new feature Science Fiction and Fantasy Fridays that I have going […]

We both agreed on every aspect of this one (with slight variations) and it was sort of shocking to both of us because usually we have some differences. However, after reading other reviews, it is apparent that most of the people who read this book feel the same way about the book: it has great representation, but not much actually happened. We thought Norah’s stream of thoughts were pretty identical to how people with agoraphobia and other anxiety disorders view the world. We are really glad that more and more authors are starting to write characters who have mental illness and […]

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion of the book. Jamie’s Review This is going to sound like a negative review even though I rated it 4 stars because while I absolutely loved the first 90%, the last 10% of it changed my rating from a 5 star to a 4 star. The ending was SO disappointing considering how much I loved the first 90% of the novel. And on top of how this story concluded, I’m not sure I like how it was left open […]

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 other would enjoy it. Dani’s review I’m going to tell you all to read this now, not because this book is amazing, but because it’s so bizarre that it needs to be shared. And, despite being weird as hell, it wasn’t all that bad. The writing was good enough and the story crazy enough that […]

Dani’s Review I almost started my review the same was Jamie did, then saw her opening and changed my mind. We’re clearly merging minds. Anyway, I did like this book. I’m a whopping 15 years older than Annie and Jason, but I was still able to very much relate with both of them. I thought they were incredibly well-written for 10 year olds, as I got a sense of their youthfulness and energy, along with the beginnings of pubescent awkwardness. Annie was so optimistic and naïve, constantly having ideas and insisting that things were done a certain way, so I can […]
