College Student Book Reviews

Welcome to Stage of Life’s book review page. Our college editor, Savannah Thorpe, is super excited to share her book reviews with everyone.

Savannah began posting her book reviews this past summer as an intern. She works at a local indie bookstore, and thought this would be a perfect complement to her job.

The page will be continuously updated as Savannah continues reading, and continues to share her thoughts on the books she has read. Most of them fall into the Young Adult genre, but she is open to all genres. Savannah loves books, and she tries to make her reviews as interesting as possible. Her reviews cover everything from the plot to the writing style and narrative techniques.

One last thing: As Savannah continues to populate this page with her own reviews, we would love to also include guest reviews. If you’ve read a great book and you would like to share your thoughts and opinions, submit your review and we will add it to the book reviews page.

“I hope you enjoy my reviews, support the authors, and write some of your own soon! Just remember: Readers are leaders.” --Savannah
