ARC Review: “The Lucky Ones” by Liz Lawson

I picked up this book from the publisher’s booth while attending the North Texas Teen Book Festival in March 2020. (I also had a chance to meet the author and get the ARC signed! How fun!)

Anyway, I figured that I would post some more informal reviews. If you’ve seen my reviews from the past (outside of the mini-reviews), you’ve seen they follow a pretty strict format. While I initially started doing that to help put my thoughts together, I sometimes found it constricting. Since I haven’t been posting a lot of reviews on my blog in general, I find that I’m posting short, concise reviews on Goodreads as soon as I finish the book. For the time being, I’m going to post them on my blog too. You may find more formal reviews mixed in but for right now, this is helping me keep the blog going and feeling like I’m actually contributing.

Sorry for that long disclaimer!
