BOOK REVIEW: THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD (THE CROSWALD SERIES) BY D.E. NIGHT

The Crowns of Croswald is a whimsical tale (reminiscent of Cinderella, Harry Potter, and Percy Jackson) of a young girl on the path to self-discovery in a magical kingdom.  This is the debut novel from D.E. Night; the first book in a Middle Grade Fantasy series.  I am 32 years old, so I seldom read Middle Grade literature, but the synopsis and beautiful cover of this book instantly caught my attention.

BOOK REVIEW: COMING UP FOR AIR (HUNDRED OAKS SERIES) BY MIRANDA KENNEALLY

I read the synopsis for Coming Up for Air and knew that I wanted...needed...to read it. This was my world, once upon a time, and I was very excited to dive into this read. Maggie was attempting to get her Olympic trials cut in swimming while trying to scrape up some shred of normalcy for her high school experience, but we get so much more than just her swimming journey. Friendships, crushes, awkward experiences, and more!
