Mini Reviews #1

There are so many books that I have read which I don’t want to write a full review for as I don’t think I have enough to say about them, so I have decided to start writing mini reviews for these particular books. I hope you enjoy this new thing that I am trying out!

Starfish – Akemi Dawn Bowman


Length: 343 pages (UK paperback edition)

Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarFull StarFull Star

I loved this book so so much! It was extremely well written and Bowman depicted mental health very well. I really liked that the protagonist of this book was mixed race as I am also missed race and it is something that I feel is hardly written about in YA books.


Geekerella – Ashley Poston


Length: 320 pages (hardback edition)

Rating: Full StarFull StarFull StarNo StarNo Star

I enjoyed some parts of this book, but I think that it is very difficult to write a Cinderella retelling and also make it completely original and interesting as it is a retelling that I think has been done a lot. Saying this, I did enjoy the romance and the friendship aspects of this book.


What’s your favourite fairytale to read as a retelling? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for reading,

  1. I love retellings. I’ve just finished Uprooted and loved it! I am currently reading Starfish as I loved Summer Bird Blue (which I highly recommend). I can’t wait for Akemi’s next book and I am super hyped that her Sci-fi book is going to be published!

  2. Starfish looks so good, and I have been scared to try Geekerella for the same reasoning you put in your review. I grew up on Cinderella retellings with the 12,000 movies there are on TV, so I wasn’t too excited to read one as well. Lovely reviews!
