One sentence reviewing is an amazing talent. Thank you
Gosh I wouldn’t be able to review a book in one sentence. Haha, it would be a realllllly long run-on sentence. Never Eighteen sounds like a very touching read, and OyMG sounds like a super fun one.
One sentence hooks are brutal to write. well done. cheers.
I agree, a one-sentence review would be challenging, for sure. I think the review for OyMG is very well done.

These all sound awesome! Thanks, Caroline. I’m especially interested in that last one. I’m always in awe of “spare” novels.
Those look fantastic- like someone commented above, the “spare” part is one of the hardest things to do. It’s so much easier to word vomit 🙂
Joanne Fritz says
That IS a talent, being able to distill a book down to its essence in one sentence. But other than that last one (which I really really want to read now because I love intense, spare reads!), we don’t know how you feel about the books.
I ADORED OyMG! I’ll have to check out Never Eighteen now!
