If there’s anything I want in YA, it’s girl gangs.
You’ve all heard me scream about the importance of female friendships in YA, and how much I love reading them.
Well, when an opportunity arose for me to hop on this blog tour for Undead Girl Gang, I jumped at the chance. (“Jumped” meaning actually physically got freaked out and extremely excited.)
I was very pleased to not be disappointed by this book! There wasn’t a lot of hype for it (though there SHOULD be), so I didn’t form the highest of expectations, but it definitely did surprise me. It took zombie girls to a WHOLE new level.
This is my stop on the Undead Girl Gang blog tour! Thank you to Penguin Random House for providing me a review copy in exchange for a spot on this blog tour.

I love books that go beyond my expectations.
I mean, who doesn’t?? It means a lot tp ME, because usually, books end up being worse than I expected and I get hit by disappointment like no other.
But this time… IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
I liked these books better than I thought I would??? Surprise!!
Girl Made of Stars was one of my most anticipated releases of the year (I saw that my request had been accepted at school and struggled not to scream) and it was even better than I had imagined. So SO GOOD.
And I honestly didn’t expect much out of Isle of Blood and Stone besides an average fantasy (especially since the beginning was slow) but it ended up surprising me and being much more entertaining than I’d suspected!!!

Just read it pleeeeeeease.
*Obviously this comes first.

In YA, you either like fantasy or contemporary better.
There’s no “I like both equally!”. You will always love one more than the other. Even just a little bit.
It’s okay, little mangoes??? You’ll survive this startling realization. But to help out with the shock, I’m also bringing to your attention this tiny little question:
Which genre is “better”?
Not “which genre do you like better?”. Which genre IS better??? Because we truly need to know which one is more beneficial to us as
mangoes crazy bookworms human beings.
