I’m Happy and Other Lies I Tell Myself by Trish Anderson

She said: I knew I was reading something special from the very first line: Men are pigs. Matt read it, looked at me, and rolled his eyes (because MEN ARE ALSO DEFENSIVE). But then he continued reading and I continued reading and we found ourselves laughing so often that we forgot about the insult/truth. I’m... Continue Reading →

The Institute by Stephen King

He said: Stephen King, kids, and a book called The Institute. It already sounds fucked up, right? This is not the kind of story I would have ever read if someone had only used those three characteristics of describing the book.

Filthy Vows by Alessandra Torre

She said: You know that emoji with the big eyes and closed mouth? The one that epitomizes HOLY SHIT? That was my expression after finishing Alessandra Torre’s Filthy Vows.

He said: If you’re new to following us, then welcome! Those of you who have been following us for some time have probably seen a trend in the types of books we review.

She said: This is the hardest review I’ll ever write because this book was personal to me. I need to say that upfront because what you’re about to read is a little different from previous reviews we’ve written.
