A Read & Review Club Review: The Mad Apprentice by Django Wexler

The CHB Read & Review Club is for educators and students who enjoy reading and would like to share the joy of reading with others through reviewing and recommending books. As a bookshop, we often receive special review copies of books in advance of their release dates so that we can review them. However, since we can only read so many books and we value the thoughts and opinions of other readers, CHB is recruiting educators and students to read and review advance reader copies (or arcs) of books that we receive, and we'll post their reviews on the Cavalier House Books website via the Read & Review Club Blog!

Review: Half Wild by Sally Green

I stayed up all night reading Sally Green’s first novel, Half Bad,  and I’ve been dying to get my hands on the sequel, Half Wild, ever since. I was lucky enough to secure a digital arc of this, and I must say that the second book more than lives up to the premise and excitement of the first. Nathan’s continuing journey had me hooked from the start. I’ll go ahead and warn readers that spoilers for Half Bad follow, though I won’t spoil anything for Book 2.

Review: The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae

With a title like The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl one does expect a lot of social fumbling, but here’s the thing: I don’t think Issa Rae is as awkward as she thinks she is. Though maybe it is hard for me, a fellow awkward, to be an unbiased judge in this situation. I can however say with certainty that Issa Rae is very funny. I’ve been a fan of her web series, also titled The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, for quite some time and was looking forward to this memoir to quell my epic sadness over the long term hiatus of the show.

Review: The Body Electric by Beth Revis

Considering I tore through Revis’s Across the Universe trilogy as quickly as I could, I was ecstatic when I heard she was releasing a new book earlier this year. I bought the book as soon as it came out, but alas, school and finals pushed back my reading until the end of the semester (it seems to do that quite often).
