Here is another review written as if I wrote it for School Library Journal. Between this and Bones & All I wanted to write a positive review and a more critical review. This is the more critical one.

Bones & All by Camille DeAngelis [Book Review]

Let me preface this post with a little description as to why this review is different. I currently review for School Library Journal and I wanted to practice writing reviews in their style before I submitted my initial application. This review is in the style as I would do it for them.

Also, Camille DeAngelis is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE authors and I am so grateful for this advanced copy that she sent me! If you have not read her books, I highly recommend that you do! This one won an Alex Award, which are awarded to adult fiction novels that would appeal to teens.

Hope you all enjoy!

*I received this novel from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

This novel was pitched as Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette and I KNEW I had to have it. I really went in with no expectations, as I had no idea how these two subjects would connect, which I think is why I enjoyed this so much. If I went in expecting one thing and it did not pan out that way, I would have been disappointed. I am glad I read this without any preamble, it made the ride that much more fun!
