’ve always enjoyed Pirate-y content. When I was a younger reader, I really enjoyed the Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer and this, while being a YA book, sounded like a more grown-up version. It gave me nostalgic vibes and I was really looking forward to reading it.

I’ve loved Maggie Stiefvater’s work since 'Shiver' and I enjoy graphic novels as well. I saw this as a great opportunity to see a collab of two things I enjoy :D I was really looking forward to this rendition of the Swamp Thing story. Additionally, I was excited to be provided with a free ARC by DC to read and review!
Kayla's Review of "I'm Not Dying With You Tonight" by Kimberly Jones & Gilly Segal About Kayla's Review of "I'm Not Dying With You Tonight" on The Book Brontosaurus "I think it’s really important for the books we read to make us think. They are an o way for us…
I remember being so interested in this book when I first read the description. My first thought was that it reminded me a little of “Far From You” by Tess Sharpe, one of my favorite books that I read a while ago and decided to review this year. I was even more excited to be given the opportunity to review an ARC.
Part of what got us to create this blog was a group of people on TikTok who had decided to start a book club. I’d never heard of “Sky in the Deep” but it was chosen as the June book of the month for 2020. I was intrigued by the description and really wanted a community to discuss this reading with so I decided to give it a chance.
This book intrigued me as soon as I read the summary. It’d been a while since I’d read a monster book and this one really crushed it. My expectations were definitely fulfilled. The only thing I didn’t like is that I now have to wait an entire year before the sequel comes out. Boo.
I became aware of this book on the Hidden Gems website where we find some of our digital and advanced reader’s copies. It sounded interesting so I decided to give it a shot and man, I was not disappointed.
This is one of those books that I had on my wish list for literal years before I finally picked it up. The description was really interesting and I’m almost glad I waited so long. The anticipation made the payoff so much better. I thought this was a crazy good debut novel and I’m looking forward to more of Tess Sharpe’s work.
I first learned about Hank Green and The Vlog Brothers when I was in High School. I had read a couple of John Green's books and I had discovered them on YouTube and loved every second of the content they produced. When I learned Hank had published his own book, I was so excited, and almost proud, having watched so much of their empire of content as it developed. I bought this book when it came out and left it on my shelf entirely too long. The sequel is coming out soon so I wanted to read this in preparation for my pre-order and I was not disappointed.
This book appealed to me for a few reasons. I really wanted to absorb as much LGBT+ content as I could this month in celebration of Pride and when I saw that an ARC was available for this book I got excited. It’s a debut novel and was short enough that I just had to fit it in my schedule!
