Do you ever just love a book so much, that when it comes to writing a review, you struggle to put into words all the emotions you have? This book made me feel all the emotions.
The world that Rin has created for us can be so beautiful and so cruel at the same time…and I love every second I spend in it.
This book started out strong, with their meet-cute giving off major Cinderella vibes. Summer always had a crush on Aoki but Aoki never noticed her…until the night of their graduation party.
Janelle, or Ellie, a black, demi-ace, plus-size teen was easy for me to relate to as was her love of books and music.
If you’re looking for a quick read that’s set in a small town, filled with lots of wedding activities, has a swoon-worthy couple, and tons of shenanigans…look no further!
This book had me laughing within the first chapter and dying of secondhand embarrassment by the fourth. I loved meeting Margo in book one and being able to read her inner thoughts as she’s faced with her childhood BFF Olivia, who she hasn’t seen or heard from in 11 years, was so good!
This book just feels like such a warm hug, who doesn’t want to find someone who loves and accepts them for all that they are and all that they want to be?
Start to finish this book had me hooked. The atmosphere, Cora herself, and all those she came into contact with had me constantly worried whether or not she could trust those around her, both new and old. This is one of those books that has me wishing to explore more of the characters and places within.
Neon Gods has been all over Tiktok since before its release last June. I’ve been following Katee on Tiktok since shortly after I joined in late 2020. The recommendations she gives have been so great and I’m embarrassed to say it took me a while to realize she wasn’t just a reviewer but an author herself.
Although this is a YA book, I feel like many people, of all ages, could relate to some of the character’s feelings, either by reminiscing of their own adolescence or even emotional obstacles they face now as adults.
