Never Always Sometimes

You may be asking yourself: “Fromjensbookshelf, why are reading books by the same authors in a row?” Well dear blog reader I have the answer for you! There is a young adult book festival coming up in a week and a half that I will be attending. Starting from The Forbidden Wish and on all of…

Everything, Everything

As I mentioned in a previous post you will notice a trend of books with pretty covers. This book falls into the category. Two authors that I follow on Instagram had posted about how amazing it was so when I was in the bookstore and saw it I decided to pick it up (it helped…

Let’s Get Lost

This was one of those books I bought mostly because he cover was pretty. Of course once the cover caught my eye I read the description and decided I would like the book. But let’s be real. Most of the time we buy books we know nothing about beforehand it is because the cover is…

The Forbidden Wish

If you have been keeping up with this blog you will know that Jessica Khoury is one of my favorite authors. I got to meet her in March of 2015 and when I did she had just announced her book The Forbidden Wish. I then had to patiently wait for this book to come out…

Hotel Ruby

This book was on my booklist to get my hands on the minute I heard about it. I was immediately intrigued by how it was going to play it out. It is the kind of book where you do not get a lot of information before you read the book. I stumbled upon a free…

Kalahari

So I can’t remember if I have written multiple reviews on one author (that is not a sequel because I have written reviews on books in a series) but this is my second review on one of Jessica Khoury’s books. The first one was for Vitro and if you read that one then you know I…

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

This book was so hyped up when it first came out. I am very wary about anything that everyone says is absolutely amazing. I have still never seen Avatar because everyone said the movie was so amazing and one of the best movies they have ever seen. Now I feel like if I see it…

The Silent Wife

I have a problem of walking into a bookstore and seeing a display and decided I need every book on that display. That is how I stumbled across this book. I had been in a bookstore and saw a display for psychological thrillers, which I love, so I took a picture of the display. Then…

The Girls of Atomic City

I think I have mentioned it before but I was not really a nonfiction reader until I read Wild by Cheryl Strayed. After reading that I was pulled towards the non-fiction section of the bookstore more often. I have found a theme though. I tend to purchase inspiring books about kick-ass women. This is one of…
