American Royals

3 min read

What would the United States be like if we were a monarchy? This is the book that puts that to the test as it follows the present day American royal family, the Washingtons. Yes, that is right. General George Washington became America’s first king after the Revolutionary War. King George IV and Queen Adelaide have three children, Princess Beatrice (the next in line for the throne GIRL POWER!) and twins, Princess Samantha and Prince Jefferson.

Cupid's Match

3 min read

Cupid’s Match is about, well, Cupid’s Match. Cupid is a character that actually exists in this book. Cupids are also a fantasy race in this book. Cupids are made from certain types of arrows, and after this happens a cupid must devote their immortal lives to matching humans for love. The catch is that cupids cannot be matched or something terrible will happen for the cupids and all of humankind. This book is about what happens when the original cupid, Cupid himself, is matched with a seventeen-year-old human.

The Handmaid's Tale Duology

5 min read

I will be comparing these books to the show, The Handmaid’s Tale. If you have not seen the show, you can still read these books. However one thing the show is valuable for, is developing the details of the first book. I will not be giving any specific spoilers for the show, but I will be speaking generally about it. Decide on your own if you want to keep reading.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

4 min read

“There’s only one way to run away from your own story, and that’s to sneak into someone else’s.” (pg. 92) This quote from The Ten Thousand Doors of January really sums up this book for me: a beautiful escape. I’ll preface with the fact that I am not a fantasy reader. I do not ever choose a fantasy story over a thriller or a romance. I like to stay in this world, but after reading The Ten Thousand Doors of January, I discovered how much I have been missing from other worlds.

The Light We Lost

4 min read

The Light We Lost has some very interesting concepts and themes. I chose this book because it is based on the most historical event of my life, September 11, 2001. I am fascinated with 9⁄11 because I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I found out about those planes on that day. I was in sixth grade, and I was in the school library because it was school picture day.
