⭐⭐½ They can’t all be winners, and Monsters Born and Made by Tanvi Berwah fell short for me. Based on that cover and summary, I expected so much more. It wasn’t exactly a bad book
⭐⭐⭐ The Ravens by Kass Morgan & Danielle Paige was similar to so many other urban YA fantasies I’ve read over the years. Mostly in the sense that – I liked it more than it deserved and

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My Mechanical Romance by Alexene Farol Follmuth is her fun, witty YA debut. It is full of adorable teen romance, swoon worthy instances, laugh out loud comebacks and
⭐⭐⭐⭐ Run Time by Catherine Ryan Howard is coming out in August 2022. And if a slow horror story set at a movie set deep in an all-consuming forest sounds good to you
