If you could read my mind, you wouldn’t be smiling.

Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can’t turn off.

Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn’t help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she’d be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam’s weekly visits to her psychiatrist.

Caroline introduces Sam to Poet’s Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more “normal” than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.

I read Stone’s first book (and sadly none of the sequels) and adored it, so when I saw Every Last Word pop up on my Goodreads feed, I knew it was a must-read. Poetry, OCD, and a swimmer?! YES PLEASE.

I don’t think I’ll be able to get Sam out of my head for a while. I related to her in so many ways – her friendship difficulties, her love for swimming, her desire to be herself. This made reading Every Last Word even more poignant. I was enthralled by Sam’s narrative from page one, and literally sat down to read and didn’t get up until I had finished the book. I wanted to see her stand up to her toxic friends, confront her feelings about AJ, and become someone who she is proud of.

And watching her along the way was beautiful. I loved reading about Sam’s growth. Watching her stand up to her friends, realize when she’d made mistakes and grow from them, and struggle with her OCD. Stone did a phenomenal job at keeping Sam down-to-earth and real for readers, making her incredibly relatable, whether you had similar experiences or not.

Sam’s OCD plays a role in the story, but it isn’t the most important facet to Sam’s personality. Her OCD is a part of who she is that Sam hides, and so over the course of the novel Sam struggles with deciding when to tell her friends (or if she should tell them at all). The scenes between Sam and her therapist were some of my favorite in the novel, because you saw Sam being brutally honest, something that was refreshing in the sections of the book where Sam felt like she had to lie about who she was. (Side note: I’m loving the increase in YA novels that have characters in therapy.)

The plot itself held a major twist at the end that threw me for a loop. But I also totally loved it. It allowed the book to end of the right note – a little bittersweet, but beautiful at the same time. It showed Sam’s growth and brought the story full circle.

Every Last Word is a must-read for any lover of relatable contemporary fiction. Sam will become a part of your heart on page one, and she won’t leave until long after you’ve finished reading her story. Tamara Ireland Stone, brava.



Book Review: Daughters Unto Devils

20522640Novel: Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics | Goodreads

When sixteen-year-old Amanda Verner’s family decides to move from their small mountain cabin to the vast prairie, she hopes it is her chance for a fresh start. She can leave behind the memory of the past winter; of her sickly Ma giving birth to a baby sister who cries endlessly; of the terrifying visions she saw as her sanity began to slip, the victim of cabin fever; and most of all, the memories of the boy she has been secretly meeting with as a distraction from her pain. The boy whose baby she now carries.

When the Verners arrive at their new home, a large cabin abandoned by its previous owners, they discover the inside covered in blood. And as the days pass, it is obvious to Amanda that something isn’t right on the prairie. She’s heard stories of lands being tainted by evil, of men losing their minds and killing their families, and there is something strange about the doctor and his son who live in the woods on the edge of the prairie. But with the guilt and shame of her sins weighing on her, Amanda can’t be sure if the true evil lies in the land, or deep within her soul.


There is this weird part of me that loves horror novels. Now, I admittedly haven’t read many. (AKA like any except for this one and three others.) However, from those I’ve read, I’ve loved every one. Daughters Unto Devils adds a new element: historical fiction. Set on the prairie in the 1800s, Daughters Unto Devils is a whole different kind of creepy. The weird neighbor boy, the unknown origin of the blood in the Verner’s new home, and the ghost stories the neighbor boy tells. With the added element of a past winter gone wrong, Daughter Unto Devils has all the creepy elements needed.

Amanda, the main character, was the highlight of the book for me. She has intense internal struggles throughout the book as she grapples with her pregnancy and her belief that she has the devil inside of her. Amanda has to confront her feelings of hatred towards herself, her unborn baby, and her baby sister. These elements made her narration dark and twisted, but also very honest. Amanda’s family gave Amanda’s character some richer complexity as you saw their interactions, and I loved seeing her relationship with her sister develop over the course of the book.

The one thing I had difficulty with was the length of the book. It’s 250 pages, and for once, I felt like there could’ve been…more. I wanted more creepy factors. I wanted the climactic scene drawn out a bit more, because it felt like just as I’d started it, it was over, and suddenly so was the book. I wanted some more detail and development of the plot towards the end.

However, I still thoroughly enjoyed Daughters Unto Devils – it was short and sweet, and a great escape from the studying hell I went through the weekend I read it. It was a refreshing break from the fantasy and contemporary I’ve been reading lately!

If you’re a historical fiction and horror fan, I’d definitely check out Daughters Unto Devils and give it a shot! I’d love to hear your thoughts.

A haunting, contemporary love story from the New York Timesbestselling author of Conversion

It’s summertime in New York City, and aspiring filmmaker Wes Auckerman has just arrived to start his summer term at NYU. While shooting a séance at a psychic’s in the East Village, he meets a mysterious, intoxicatingly beautiful girl named Annie.

As they start spending time together, Wes finds himself falling for her, drawn to her rose petal lips and her entrancing glow. But there’s something about her that he can’t put his finger on that makes him wonder about this intriguing hipster girl from the Village. Why does she use such strange slang? Why does she always seem so reserved and distant? And, most importantly, why does he only seem to run into her on one block near the Bowery? Annie’s hiding something, a dark secret from her past that may be the answer to all of Wes’s questions . . .

This book is everything you could ever want in a book. Magical realism, Ghosts, New York City, Historical Fiction, New Adult (that isn’t super sexy!!!!), Contemporary – it covers all the bases. I adored Katherine Howe’s first YA book, Conversion, and The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen is just as incredible.

The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen follows Wes and Annie, two people from different times, but both grappling with their place in their world. Wes is a film student at NYU for the summer, and he desperately hopes to make NYU his home come fall. Annie’s family is in danger, and as she goes from her home in the 1800s to present day, she has to investigate what will happen to them, in order for her to save them. Their lives intertwine and they fall for each other in this utterly beautiful way. Although not completely believable (I didn’t really feel the romantic sparks between then, especially considering Annie’s attraction to another man) but it was adorable all the same. I was a massive fan of their friendship, which intensifies over the course of the novel, and by the end I was so emotionally attached to Annie and Wes that the thought of them going their separate ways broke my heart.

Howe is an incredible writer. She tells Wes and Annie’s stories with the picturesque background of New York City and makes their narratives mesh so well. The plot is rich and exciting, and I was never bored. It took me about fifty pages to get into the story, but once I was in, I couldn’t put it down. I was reading at a swim meet – that’s how into the story I was.

Both Wes and Annie grow significantly over the course of the book, but Wes stood out to me as a particularly changed character. He meets different people, puts himself in new situations, and truly experiences life, something he discusses time and time again in the book. His love for film and passion for art comes through in his perspective and I loved seeing his film come together through the book. His friends, Tyler, Maddie, and Eastlin, pushed Wes outside his comfort zone and with Annie’s help, showed him the importance of seeing the world around him. I loved their friendships!

The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen is yet another beautiful book about life from Katherine Howe. I need her next book.



Who Am I Without Blogging?

let's chat

“Let’s Chat” is my Discussion series on Willa’s Ramblings, where I talk about things on all topics – life, books, music, and pretty music anything under the sun! Please let me know in comments or on Twitter what you think and let’s chat!

Today on “Let’s Chat”: Who Am I Without Blogging?

The other day I was reading one of my best friends Jen’s blog, J(en)’adore and ran across this post on how college has changed her reading habits. The last one is that she doesn’t feel like blogging, which really resonated with me – all bloggers have been there. Once I started to think about my own times of hiatus I started to wonder what had made me want to continue blogging?

Then I realized I was scared.

I was really, really freaking scared of not blogging.

And then I thought, why am I scared of not blogging?

And I realized that I don’t know who I am without blogging.

Blogging has been a part of my daily life since I was eleven. I’m seventeen now. That’s six years of my life, dominated by a hobby that has become my passion and has led me to my future career. It’s something that I see as a part of who I am and defines me as me in my own eyes. So, that begs the question – who am I without it?

There have been so many times where I’ve considered quitting, and I always say my friends pull me back in, which is completely true, but I also think my own fear of stopping keeps me going. I love blogging so much that I fear that without it I won’t have anything that makes me me anymore.

I’m really nervous about my future, too. College, specifically. What happens to my blog in college? Will I still read? Will I still want to blog? Will it fall to the wayside? I’ve always dreamed of being a college blogger, but what if I’m not college blogger material?

There are so many questions coming at me about the coming year, and one of those is my own: what is the future of Willa’s Ramblings? It’s been with me through so much of my life, with the same name and the same general focus. It’s kept me driven and motivated and forced me to go outside my comfort zone. It’s given me skills like nothing else could, and has taught me about the true meaning of the word community. I feel like I’d be letting myself down if I quit blogging – like all of this work had been for nothing.

And that’s probably all a bunch of crap, but it’s still something I wonder about. It’s one of those thoughts I prefer not to think about because it freaks me out, but here I am, talking about it. And publishing it.

So let me know in comments about your own fears. Bloggers, do you fear the same thing? Do you have the same questions? Let me know!


Book Review: The Rest of Us Just Live Here

20522640Novel: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness | Goodreads
Release Date: October 6th, 2015
Publisher: HarperTeen
Format: ARC

What if you aren’t the Chosen One?

The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

Even if your best friend is worshiped by mountain lions.

Award-winning writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable.

This was my first Patrick Ness novel, but I went into it with no expectations. I had no idea what kind of books Ness wrote (and still don’t?) so The Rest of Us Just Live Here was surprising to say the least. Someone needs to tell me: are all of his books this weird? Yet totally cool? I’m not usually a fan of books with this type of magical realism (the it’s-totally-normal-and-I’m-not-going-to-explain-it kind) but this one was good. The incredibly relatable characters and strong plot allowed me to kind of forget about how weird half of the book was and focus on the reality, which got me through the book.

Mike, the main character, is one of those characters who I just GOT. I related 100% to his feeling of being the outsider friend and the one who always got pushed to the side. I understood his desire to finish school, but also his fears for the future. I felt his pains about school, his love for his family, and his frustration with his own shortcomings. In essence, I related to him on just about every level, aside from his anxiety. Mike’s anxiety was done so well. I have a friend with anxiety like Mike’s, so I understood his compulsions, and I loved the way Ness described them – like loops that you can’t get out of. Mike and his sister Mel’s discussions of the “issues” they’ve recovered from (anxiety and anorexia) gave their relationship a whole nother layer of complexity. Their honesty and support for one another, as well as complete trust, allowed them to really be there for one another which I loved reading about.

The cast of friends in this book was another highlight. Henna, Mike’s love interest, had elements of manic pixie girl, but not enough to draw away from her character. She held her own as she dealt with her controlling parents and helped Mike confront his true feelings for her. I loved watching their relationship grow over the course of the book, and I adored the way Ness finished it at the end of the book. Jared, Mike’s best friend, was EVERYTHING. 1/4 Cat God? Yes, please. He was funny, understanding, and reminded me of myself as a friend. I loved seeing him support Mike and never give up on him.

The weird parts of the book that I mentioned at the beginning of this review confuse me. They’re never really explained (which might be purposeful) but that, surprisingly enough, didn’t bother me too much. Once I embraced my confusion and moved on I enjoyed the storyline far more. So, if upon starting this book, the supernatural elements are making it difficult for you to read, I suggest embracing them and persevering! It’s an incredible read and well worth it.

I highly suggest this Patrick Ness book, and as a new Ness fan, I’m definitely planning on picking up his other titles!



Book Review: Wolf by Wolf

20522640Novel: Wolf by Wolf (Wolf by Wolf, #1) by Ryan Graudin | Goodreads
Release Date: October 20th, 2015
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Format: ARC
Source: Author (Thanks, Ryan!)

Code Name Verity meets Inglourious Basterds in this fast-paced novel from the author of The Walled City.

The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule the world. To commemorate their Great Victory over Britain and Russia, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s ball.

Yael, who escaped from a death camp, has one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year’s only female victor, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele twin’s brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael’s every move. But as Yael begins to get closer to the other competitors, can she bring herself to be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and complete her mission?

Graudin’s Walled City was one of my favorites of last year, as you can see in my gushing review, so I had high hopes for Wolf by Wolf – I expected a heart-racing plot, bold characters, and writing that lured me in.

And I got everything I asked for.

Wolf by Wolf is a masterpiece of historical fiction. Yael’s story weaves together magical realism and historical fiction, creating a complex and rich story of survival in a world where Hitler won WWII. As a self-proclaimed history nerd, I loved the world Graudin creates that is wrought with fear and deception. It mirrors much of what I’ve read about living under Hitler’s thumb: the constant check-ins, the ruthless Gestapo, and the brutal death camps that litter the Reich’s territory.

Yael herself is the definition of a kick-ass heroine. Harrowed by the pain of her past and driven by her hope for a better future, Yael pushes herself beyond her limits and takes on the identity of Adele Wolfe, the Axis Tour Victor. Adele and Yael couldn’t be more different on the outside: Adele is an Aryan beauty, Yael a Jewish girl. Enemies, even. And yet, as Yael claims Adele’s life, I saw their personalities bleeding. When Yael begins the Axis Tour, she thinks she knows everything about Adele, but as the kilometers fly by, Yael discovers Adele had secrets, and the two girls may be more alike than she realizes. This forces Yael to take chances as Adele and sacrifice her cover, trusting the two people who could break her mission in two: Luka, Adele’s former love interest, and Felix, Adele’s twin brother. Yael risks everything as she makes the choice between life and death, crossing kilometer after kilometer on her bike.

Luka and Felix continually surprised me, just like Yael. Graudin kept them human, despite being able to make the ruthless and flat. She gave them secrets and faults and made you question their motives constantly. Luka and Felix tested Yael and forced her to question her mission, making the story more complex and exciting to read.

What I adored most about this novel was the topic Graudin takes on: identity. Yael’s power to skinshift changes the game, allowing her to deceive everyone who comes her way, but it also means Yael doesn’t really have an identity. Who is a girl that doesn’t know her own face? Yael can’t remember what she looked like as a child, and so the identities she takes on become a part of her – names, appearances, lives. In the world of the Third Reich, identity is everything, because it can save you from death. The question of who we are is brought up over and over again in Wolf by Wolf, especially in Yael’s situation.

I can’t recommend Wolf by Wolf enough. It doesn’t matter what kind of books you like – you’ll find something to latch onto. Graudin has crafted another beautifully woven story of survival, identity, and truth that I fell in love with.



How Waking Up at 6AM Changed My Life

For a long time, I slept on a steady schedule of eleven or midnight until eight in the morning. School started at nine, so it was constantly a rush to get to school. Then, at the end of last year, I decided to start waking up at six in the morning, just to see what happened.

Instead of going to bed closer to midnight, I go to bed around ten. I get a full eight hours of sleep, and spend an hour each morning either working on homework, reading, checking the news, replying to emails – whatever I have to do. I spend a calm hour in my pajamas each morning before everyone else is up, starting my day with productivity.

What ended up happening is that I went to school feeling prepared. Rather than being a mess every time I got to school, scattered and anxious, when I’d had an hour in the morning to study for that morning’s history quiz, I felt far more prepared. This year, in the flood of college apps, I’ve spent that hour in the morning rereading my essays, finishing my resume, and finalizing my list of activities. Sometimes, when I don’t have much to do, I wake up and read.

Waking up at 6AM has redefined the way I spend my time and the way I approach my day. I’m more awake, well-rested, and sleep better at night.

I know this was a short post, but I wanted to share some thoughts with you all! Let me know if this has given you any goals to wake up at 6AM and what you think.



I’m honored to be able to interview Ann Jacobus, who wrote the stellar novel Romancing the Dark in the City of Light. You can read my review here. Enjoy the interview!

RomancingtheDark_finalWhat was the inspiration for Romancing with the Dark in the City of Light?

Our family lived in Paris for ten years. One evening, my young daughter and I were in the metro and someone ended up on the tracks in front of our train. We quickly left the station (that was overflowing with freaked-out people). Exactly what happened remains a mystery as I could find no mention of it in any media afterwards. I had to conclude that it was a suicide, as they are generally not reported. The incident haunted me and I finally started a story about it four years later.

Where did the characters of Summer, Kurt, and Moony come from?

Characters tend to spring pretty fully-developed into my mind. Sometimes I have to combine two, or make some sort of significant change to them. Believe it or not, Summer in earlier drafts was even angrier and less likable than she is now. Moony has remained just as he was when Summer met him in their first scene together. Kurt came from an idea for a character I had long before I started this story. Like an actor, I have to find the parts of me I share in common with my characters to try to express them better.

What kind of research did you have to do for the book?

Over the years, I’ve volunteered on several suicide crisis lines, and have received a fair amount of training. I was briefly suicidal at age fifteen, and have been interested in and concerned about this sobering subject most of my life. I did do research on the latest studies and data, notably the eye-opening Centers for Disease Control 2013 Risky Behavior Surveillance of almost 40,000 nation-wide high school kids. I also attended AA meetings, and consulted family members who are recovering addicts, as well as medical doctors, psychologists, French police, and friends from the Arabian Gulf (where we also lived for several years).

At the beginning of the story, I was not a fan of Summer, but I grew to like her over the course of the book. What inspired the character of Summer, and was her unlikeable personality intentional?

I’m glad you asked this question! Yes, it was intentional. People who are depressed, addicted, and in the kind of pain that makes taking their own life seem like a viable option are not necessarily pleasant or easy to be around. I also chafe at the perceived need for a “likeable” female main character, a standard I don’t feel we apply equally to male main characters. Summer is her own worst enemy and she’s taking us on a dark and difficult journey, Some people get along with her better than others! On the other hand, I understand I’m walking a thin line and may be demanding more from my readers, who do have to empathize with and understand Summer to keep reading. If you don’t care, you’ll put the book down. But that’s also fine. This story isn’t for everybody.

Ann Jacobus CREDIT Marc Olivier LeblancThere are hints of magical realism in the story. Was that an intention you had when you started the book or did it develop as you developed the character of Kurt?

It was my intention to include what I call the irreal (forgive me for not saying more because of spoilers).

What attracted you to setting the book in Paris?

As I mentioned above, we lived in Paris for many years. I figured I’d be crazy not to set a story there. It’s indisputably a beautiful and fascinating place that is so often lauded in art, literature, film, etc. I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the dark and creepy side of Paris, which of course every city has. I felt a little guilty doing this, but I figure Paris can handle it.

Summer’s relationship with her mom was one of the parts I struggled with the most because I saw how much she needed her mom’s guidance. When you were writing was it hard for you to let Summer fall apart and not involve her mother?

Yes! Totally. I had to pile so many bad experiences on Summer and push her toward so many bad choices. She’s in desperate need of an involved, caring parent! It truly was hard to make her mother so distant and clueless. Mom does at least believe that Summer is getting professional help. Don’t forget, if Mom came in and solved things, there wouldn’t be much of a story. Or I should say, it would be a different story. This is what writers have to do to our young characters–make life difficult (poor Summer’s is unusually so) and generally remove adults who would solve things, especially parents. Summer has to figure this out for herself. The fact remains, not every young person has enough adults in their life, parents or otherwise, they feel they can trust and turn to.

Kurt acts as a sort of suicide guide throughout the novel. Was that meant to be a parallel to something in society that you see? 

Rather than something external in society, I would say that it could be a parallel to the self-destructive urges almost everyone encounters internally at some point in their life, as well as the ultimate self-destruction—suicidality itself (the term for feeling suicidal). I have to turn it over to the reader, though, to interpret.

Thanks so much Ann for answering my questions and St. Martin’s Press for approaching me about the book! Let me know your thoughts in comments.


Book Review: Love and Other Alien Experiences

20522640Novel: Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey | Goodreads
Release Date: November 10th, 2015
Publisher: The Studio (by PaperLantern Lit)
Format: E-book
Source: Publisher


In this heartwarming debut by HelloGiggles blogger Kerry Winfrey, a young agoraphobe begins a journey of first love that leads her to the true meaning of home—just by taking one small step outside of her house.

My name is Mallory Sullivan.

My therapist says I have an anxiety disorder.

My brother says I’m an “optimistic recluse.”

Everybody else says I’m a freak.

And they kind of have a point, because I haven’t left the house in 67 days and only attend class via the webcam on my laptop. The person I talk to the most other than my mom and brother is the completely obnoxious BeamMeUp, and all we do is argue on New Mexico’s premiere alien message board.

But after yesterday, I have something: a chance. If I can win the homecoming crown by convincing resident hot popular guy and Friday Night Lights spawn Brad Kirkpatrick to go as my date, then maybe #stayathome will never appear next to the name @Mallory_Sullivan ever again.

First, I have to leave my room.

LOVE AND OTHER ALIEN EXPERIENCES is a rollercoaster ride of hilarity. Mallory, the main character, never failed to surprise me.

LAOAE tells the story of Mallory, a senior in high school who is agoraphobic and hasn’t left her house since the summer, and her journey back into the world around her. Mallory keeps the intense plotline fresh with her whitty remarks and hilarious comments on the world around her. She reminded me of friends I have, which made the story all the more appealing for me.

The book was a wee-bit predictable in some places and slightly cliche, but it didn’t draw away from my enjoyment of the story. I was engaged from page one and emotionally vested in Mallory achieving her goals. Throughout the book you see her go from girl panicking when she leaves her mailbox to working towards going to her high school. Her emotional and mental growth over the course of the novel is stunning, and it made me wonder how common her story is, something I always love in contemporary books. The characters also added more elements of originality – her brother Lincoln is my dream brother, and her best friend Jenni is the friend I’ve always wanted to have. The Kirkpatrick brothers are a force to be reckoned with, but surprised me a lot. I expected Brad to stab Mallory in the back or be a stereotypical popular football-playing jerk, but he was anything but that. He supported Mallory, trusted her, and made her feel safe, something I loved seeing in their relationship.

The highlight, however, was Mallory’s online life on an alien discussion page. Her conversations with BeamMeUp never failed to make me laugh, and although I had suspicions about his true identity, the reveal was exciting nevertheless.

If you’re a fan of contemporary that deals with anxiety and unique characters, I’d definitely give LOVE AND OTHER ALIEN EXPERIENCES a try! It really surprised me.
