“As Good As Dead” by Holly Jackson (AGGGTM #3)

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose This book kept me on the edge of my seat and also made me DREAD the ending. I didn’t want to see it end – especially since I knew it would be the official end to Pippa’s story. But at the same time, Jackson did this trilogy justice and as …

“All the Feels” by Olivia Dade (Spoiler Alert #2)

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose Seeing events from Dade’s “Spoiler Alert” from an entirely different perspective was enriching. This book (and series) is wholeheartedly for fans of body-positive reads and those who can enjoy some Roman-mythology based television alongside some fan fiction. Whereas in the first book when we had Marcus and April navigating their …

“A Rebel in Auschwitz” by Jack Fairweather

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose As someone who has studied different perspectives and stories about the Holocaust her entire life, and spends a good portion of her time teaching it to her students, this book came as a shock. I had never before read a personal account of someone’s experience in Auschwitz in the beginning …

“Good Girl, Bad Blood” by Holly Jackson (AGGGTM #2)

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose Second in the series, this is just as good as the first one.

“The Love Hypothesis” by Ali Hazelwood

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose I cannot believe this is a debut novel. This book is everything – it’s one of the few that just as I finished reading it, I knew I needed to reread it again. And soon. With a desire to protect her friend’s heart, Olive pretends to be dating someone at …

“A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder” by Holly Jackson (AGGGTM #1)

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose Pippa Fitz-Amobi is badass. There’s really no other way to describe her. When faced with a school project, she decided she didn’t want to do something that wouldn’t mean anything in the future, so instead, she decided to try to uncover the truth about a murder that was far closer …

“The Matzah Ball” by Jean Meltzer

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose From the moment I read the description of this book, I fell in love with it. It contained all of my insecurities in a beautifully festive package. I grew up Jewish, in love with the idea of Christmas but unable to actually enjoy it within my Jewish family unless I …

“When Sparks Fly” by Helena Hunting

Photograph by Nikki H. Rose Best friends who are not romantically involved but live together? Ok, sure. But then one gets injured, the other is partially to blame, and now they are living together as not only best friends, but as caretakers. All boundaries are broken and they get closer than they could have ever …

“They Stay” by Claire Fraise

I didn't want to put this book down, and even the ending makes me impatient for the second book – but there's also a lot to unpack with this one. The trigger warnings in the book (on the back cover) should not be overlooked. There are severe depictions of domestic abuse, sexual abuse, kidnappings, missing …
