If you're looking for a novel that will take your heart and make it swell with joy before crushing it until it bursts into a million, broken-hearted pieces, then this is the book for you. Dannie has a plan, a five-year plan; start her dream job, move into a fancy apartment, marry her boyfriend, and live happily ever after. But when she suddenly wakes up five years in the future in a new apartment with a strange man beside her, she learns that not everything goes according to plan. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

Published: Bloomsbury Children's Books - February 4th, 2020

An honest and powerful book that should be in every bookstore and school library. The parallels between the cricket farm and a woman's experience in this male dominated world were unexpected but worked for the story. Kate Messner does an excellent job of creating an engaging story, while also sharing words of wisdom that the intended audience (Middle-grade) can understand. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

If you loved the Infernal Devices, you will adore this book. You can expect plenty of action, mystery, and romance in this latest installment to the shadowhunter world. Jem, Will, and Tessa play a major part in this novel, but you're also introduced to a new group of strong characters; all with different backgrounds, ethnicities and sexual orientations. Even if you haven't read a single shadowhunter book before, you can still enjoy this read without too much difficulty. I can't wait to see where this series goes! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

The Unspoken Name is a fast-paced epic fantasy read with some space opera vibes. It is action packed and features LGBTQ+ characters. You will fall in love with Csorwe, an orc priestess turned assassin, as well as her diverse companions as they discover the power of choice and free will. Perfect for anyone who is looking to get into fantasy or science fiction. I highly recommend! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn
