    Aaaand the 2 star streak continues ? I?m SO bummed I didn?t love this. I thought it was going to be the body positive book of my dreams but it just ended up being a mess. No one talk to me while I mourn what I thought was going to be one of my favorite books of the year. TW: ...

    I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher (Turner Publishing) in exchange for an honest review. This was a super fun and cute read! I loved the unique point of view. A plus sized fashion blogger who loves paleontology is something we don?t see often. I enjoye...

    This book is actual gold. Feminism, in the world of science, and on top of that plus-size rep? GIMME! One thing YA needs more of are plus-size women and women in STEM featured in books of all genres, and Mammoth is one of the best examples I?ve ever seen of that! I absolutely ad...

    *2.5 stars* I have such conflicting thoughts on this one. Review coming soon! For now, since I wish I had these before I started reading, here are some content warnings: fatphobic thoughts; fatphobic comments; restriction of eating; unwanted sexual advances (kissing, touching); ...

    Official comments: Nerds and fashionistas, rejoice: Natalie is the unapologetically awesome heroine we've all been waiting for! Fresh and fun, this story is a love letter to paleontology, a great example of women in STEM, and a victory for anyone who's ever wanted to change what they s...

    I can't describe how happy I was when I got approved for this ARC (which also happens to be my first one from Edelweiss+), because it's not everyday that we get plus size or science nerd heroines in YA, and this book had one who is both while also being a fashion blogger. It's such a u...

    1.5 on the blog. I really struggled with whether I was going to give this two or three stars. I had given it three stars, but after drafting my review I realized how extremely disappointing it was. First thing was the barbecue element, more specifically... PORK barbeque. The idea...

    Right before entering high school, Natalie underwent a transformation from Fat Nat to Awesome Natalie. Makeup and fashion became her armor, protecting her both physically and emotionally from the judgement of others. However, during her summer internship, she discovered she was more th...

    I really liked this. A whole lot of this is a glimpse into the head of high school/college-Rachel (and some current Rachel). And the ending made me smile so freaking hard. I'm all about stories about girls in STEM fields and all about stories about fat girls with a hell of a lot of amb...

    So, something people may not know about me is that my college degree was a Bachelor of Science in Education with Earth Science as my Major and Biology as my Minor. I have always been a bit obsessed with dinosaurs and fossils. The release of the original Jurassic Park movie, well the bo...

    I enjoyed Mammoth a lot and had an incredibly fun time reading it. I got sucked in from the first few words (or rather, the first drawing) and I never really had the desire to put it down. If I had had time I would have definitely read it in one sitting. The main character in the bo...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 stars Are you looking for a book about plus-size fashion, body positivity, and women in STEM? Then look no further because Mammoth does a fantastic job of providing just that in a way that actually lived up to my hopeful expectations! An impressive debut from a sm...

    ARC provided by Turner Publishing in exchange for an honest review. When I heard this book is about boosting women in STEM and is all about paleontology, I knew I had to request this. While the writing and plot was more of a 3-star read for me, I found the subject matter very near...

    Trigger warnings: fatphobia holy wow. Also bullying and self-harm. 3.25 stars. So here's the thing: this was one of my most anticipated books for the second half of this year. I mean...a plus sized fashion blogger who's really into palaeontology? YES PLEASE. And for the most part, ...

    This was so, SO BEAUTIFUL!!! And everything I needed it to be, especially as a paleontologist-hopeful!!! This not only brings light to all the problems in the paleontology field, but also talks so much about what life is actually like when you're plus sized!! This is definitely one of ...

    I'm trying to read as much YA about girls in STEM as possible (yainterrobang.com/list-stem-ladies/). This one features a girl going to a palaeontology summer internship. It's full of hijinks and romance and scandal, with some great points about women in STEM. ...

    Will be doing a video review on this! I'll link it soon! ...

    When I read books where characters continuously make poor choices, it irritates me and makes me feel bad for the character. I did enjoy the romance and the science part of this book. I think there need to be more books with main enjoy science and learning. It was nice to see that in...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. My inner geek self and paleontologist enjoyed this book very much! It was funny emotional, filled with bones and discoveries! Natalie's story who arises to the occasion of making her own mark in the world was great...

    This is an awesome book. I was intrigued by the premise of a girl in a male-dominated industry (an industry I haven?t read any novels about before, no less), and got so much more. Natalie struggles with some serious self-esteem issues due to her body type, and she has reinvented he...

    Don't be fooled by the title of Baguchinsky's "Mammoth", it is nothing if not lighthearted. Narrator Natalie is a rising high school junior and paleontology geek who comes to rely on a persona of geek chic couture and constant stream of "awesomeness" to navigate high school as a fat gi...

    "You can?t hide from assholes. You just have to learn to deal." Women in Stem is a hard thing to come by and this puts women right where they belong. That is obviously at the top! One thing I wasn?t expecting to happen was me wanting to learn more about Paleontology. It was ...

    This sounds so fricking cool?? I love dinosaurs, y'all ...

    Do yourself a favor and check this out. Natalie is the smart, tenacious, and relatable heroine we've been waiting for! ...

    10/28: My review for Mammoth can be found here on Fangirl Fury: https://fangirlfury.com/2018/10/29/ma... 8/22: So. Freaking. Good!! ...

    listen not that i thought i?d dislike this book but WOW i am SURPRISED ...

    SUCH a sweet book! I've been finding myself really enjoying YA books these days! They are definitely getting better and better, and the messages in some of them are so strong, and heartfelt, and important. THIS book, is not an exception to that. Jill Baguchinsky crafts an adorable stor...

    What do you get when you cross fashion with palaeontology? Mammoth is a fun YA contemporary. This summer might be all about Ice Age creatures but it also heats up with a bit of romance and a touch of big discoveries, betrayals and cover ups. In the vein of Julie Murphy?s Dumplin?, ...

    A fun book about taking risks, even when the payoff isn't always what you hoped it could be. Natalie is a high schooler who scores an internship at an Ice Age Dig Site near Austin, Texas (which plays a bigger role near the end of the book with cameos of Book People and Amy's Ice Cream,...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 stars Are you looking for a book about plus-size fashion, body positivity, and women in STEM? Then look no further because Mammoth does a fantastic job of providing just that in a way that actually lived up to my hopeful expectations! An impressive debut from a sm...

    ARC provided by Turner Publishing in exchange for an honest review. When I heard this book is about boosting women in STEM and is all about paleontology, I knew I had to request this. While the writing and plot was more of a 3-star read for me, I found the subject matter very near...

    Trigger warnings: fatphobia holy wow. Also bullying and self-harm. 3.25 stars. So here's the thing: this was one of my most anticipated books for the second half of this year. I mean...a plus sized fashion blogger who's really into palaeontology? YES PLEASE. And for the most part, ...

    This was so, SO BEAUTIFUL!!! And everything I needed it to be, especially as a paleontologist-hopeful!!! This not only brings light to all the problems in the paleontology field, but also talks so much about what life is actually like when you're plus sized!! This is definitely one of ...

    I'm trying to read as much YA about girls in STEM as possible (yainterrobang.com/list-stem-ladies/). This one features a girl going to a palaeontology summer internship. It's full of hijinks and romance and scandal, with some great points about women in STEM. ...

    Will be doing a video review on this! I'll link it soon! ...

    When I read books where characters continuously make poor choices, it irritates me and makes me feel bad for the character. I did enjoy the romance and the science part of this book. I think there need to be more books with main enjoy science and learning. It was nice to see that in...

    This is an awesome book. I was intrigued by the premise of a girl in a male-dominated industry (an industry I haven?t read any novels about before, no less), and got so much more. Natalie struggles with some serious self-esteem issues due to her body type, and she has reinvented he...

    Don't be fooled by the title of Baguchinsky's "Mammoth", it is nothing if not lighthearted. Narrator Natalie is a rising high school junior and paleontology geek who comes to rely on a persona of geek chic couture and constant stream of "awesomeness" to navigate high school as a fat gi...

    10/28: My review for Mammoth can be found here on Fangirl Fury: https://fangirlfury.com/2018/10/29/ma... 8/22: So. Freaking. Good!! ...

    listen not that i thought i?d dislike this book but WOW i am SURPRISED ...

    SUCH a sweet book! I've been finding myself really enjoying YA books these days! They are definitely getting better and better, and the messages in some of them are so strong, and heartfelt, and important. THIS book, is not an exception to that. Jill Baguchinsky crafts an adorable stor...

    What do you get when you cross fashion with palaeontology? Mammoth is a fun YA contemporary. This summer might be all about Ice Age creatures but it also heats up with a bit of romance and a touch of big discoveries, betrayals and cover ups. In the vein of Julie Murphy?s Dumplin?, ...

    Aaaand the 2 star streak continues ? I?m SO bummed I didn?t love this. I thought it was going to be the body positive book of my dreams but it just ended up being a mess. No one talk to me while I mourn what I thought was going to be one of my favorite books of the year. TW: ...

    I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher (Turner Publishing) in exchange for an honest review. This was a super fun and cute read! I loved the unique point of view. A plus sized fashion blogger who loves paleontology is something we don?t see often. I enjoye...

    This book is actual gold. Feminism, in the world of science, and on top of that plus-size rep? GIMME! One thing YA needs more of are plus-size women and women in STEM featured in books of all genres, and Mammoth is one of the best examples I?ve ever seen of that! I absolutely ad...

    *2.5 stars* I have such conflicting thoughts on this one. Review coming soon! For now, since I wish I had these before I started reading, here are some content warnings: fatphobic thoughts; fatphobic comments; restriction of eating; unwanted sexual advances (kissing, touching); ...

    Official comments: Nerds and fashionistas, rejoice: Natalie is the unapologetically awesome heroine we've all been waiting for! Fresh and fun, this story is a love letter to paleontology, a great example of women in STEM, and a victory for anyone who's ever wanted to change what they s...

    I can't describe how happy I was when I got approved for this ARC (which also happens to be my first one from Edelweiss+), because it's not everyday that we get plus size or science nerd heroines in YA, and this book had one who is both while also being a fashion blogger. It's such a u...

    1.5 on the blog. I really struggled with whether I was going to give this two or three stars. I had given it three stars, but after drafting my review I realized how extremely disappointing it was. First thing was the barbecue element, more specifically... PORK barbeque. The idea...

    Right before entering high school, Natalie underwent a transformation from Fat Nat to Awesome Natalie. Makeup and fashion became her armor, protecting her both physically and emotionally from the judgement of others. However, during her summer internship, she discovered she was more th...

    I really liked this. A whole lot of this is a glimpse into the head of high school/college-Rachel (and some current Rachel). And the ending made me smile so freaking hard. I'm all about stories about girls in STEM fields and all about stories about fat girls with a hell of a lot of amb...

    So, something people may not know about me is that my college degree was a Bachelor of Science in Education with Earth Science as my Major and Biology as my Minor. I have always been a bit obsessed with dinosaurs and fossils. The release of the original Jurassic Park movie, well the bo...

    I enjoyed Mammoth a lot and had an incredibly fun time reading it. I got sucked in from the first few words (or rather, the first drawing) and I never really had the desire to put it down. If I had had time I would have definitely read it in one sitting. The main character in the bo...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 stars Are you looking for a book about plus-size fashion, body positivity, and women in STEM? Then look no further because Mammoth does a fantastic job of providing just that in a way that actually lived up to my hopeful expectations! An impressive debut from a sm...

    ARC provided by Turner Publishing in exchange for an honest review. When I heard this book is about boosting women in STEM and is all about paleontology, I knew I had to request this. While the writing and plot was more of a 3-star read for me, I found the subject matter very near...

    Note: I received an Uncorrected Proof/Advanced Copy of Mammoth from Turner Publishing Company, in exchange for my honest review. With comedy, self-deprecation, and some thoughtful looks and internal struggles about appearances and confidence, Mammoth tells the story of Natalie Page,...

    Trigger warnings: fatphobia holy wow. Also bullying and self-harm. 3.25 stars. So here's the thing: this was one of my most anticipated books for the second half of this year. I mean...a plus sized fashion blogger who's really into palaeontology? YES PLEASE. And for the most part, ...

    This was so, SO BEAUTIFUL!!! And everything I needed it to be, especially as a paleontologist-hopeful!!! This not only brings light to all the problems in the paleontology field, but also talks so much about what life is actually like when you're plus sized!! This is definitely one of ...

    I'm trying to read as much YA about girls in STEM as possible (yainterrobang.com/list-stem-ladies/). This one features a girl going to a palaeontology summer internship. It's full of hijinks and romance and scandal, with some great points about women in STEM. ...

    Will be doing a video review on this! I'll link it soon! ...

    When I read books where characters continuously make poor choices, it irritates me and makes me feel bad for the character. I did enjoy the romance and the science part of this book. I think there need to be more books with main enjoy science and learning. It was nice to see that in...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. My inner geek self and paleontologist enjoyed this book very much! It was funny emotional, filled with bones and discoveries! Natalie's story who arises to the occasion of making her own mark in the world was great...

    Don't be fooled by the title of Baguchinsky's "Mammoth", it is nothing if not lighthearted. Narrator Natalie is a rising high school junior and paleontology geek who comes to rely on a persona of geek chic couture and constant stream of "awesomeness" to navigate high school as a fat gi...

    "You can?t hide from assholes. You just have to learn to deal." Women in Stem is a hard thing to come by and this puts women right where they belong. That is obviously at the top! One thing I wasn?t expecting to happen was me wanting to learn more about Paleontology. It was ...

    Right before entering high school, Natalie underwent a transformation from Fat Nat to Awesome Natalie. Makeup and fashion became her armor, protecting her both physically and emotionally from the judgement of others. However, during her summer internship, she discovered she was more th...

    I really liked this. A whole lot of this is a glimpse into the head of high school/college-Rachel (and some current Rachel). And the ending made me smile so freaking hard. I'm all about stories about girls in STEM fields and all about stories about fat girls with a hell of a lot of amb...

    Aaaand the 2 star streak continues ? I?m SO bummed I didn?t love this. I thought it was going to be the body positive book of my dreams but it just ended up being a mess. No one talk to me while I mourn what I thought was going to be one of my favorite books of the year. TW: ...

    I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher (Turner Publishing) in exchange for an honest review. This was a super fun and cute read! I loved the unique point of view. A plus sized fashion blogger who loves paleontology is something we don?t see often. I enjoye...

    This book is actual gold. Feminism, in the world of science, and on top of that plus-size rep? GIMME! One thing YA needs more of are plus-size women and women in STEM featured in books of all genres, and Mammoth is one of the best examples I?ve ever seen of that! I absolutely ad...

    *2.5 stars* I have such conflicting thoughts on this one. Review coming soon! For now, since I wish I had these before I started reading, here are some content warnings: fatphobic thoughts; fatphobic comments; restriction of eating; unwanted sexual advances (kissing, touching); ...

    So, something people may not know about me is that my college degree was a Bachelor of Science in Education with Earth Science as my Major and Biology as my Minor. I have always been a bit obsessed with dinosaurs and fossils. The release of the original Jurassic Park movie, well the bo...

    I enjoyed Mammoth a lot and had an incredibly fun time reading it. I got sucked in from the first few words (or rather, the first drawing) and I never really had the desire to put it down. If I had had time I would have definitely read it in one sitting. The main character in the bo...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 stars Are you looking for a book about plus-size fashion, body positivity, and women in STEM? Then look no further because Mammoth does a fantastic job of providing just that in a way that actually lived up to my hopeful expectations! An impressive debut from a sm...

    ARC provided by Turner Publishing in exchange for an honest review. When I heard this book is about boosting women in STEM and is all about paleontology, I knew I had to request this. While the writing and plot was more of a 3-star read for me, I found the subject matter very near...

    Trigger warnings: fatphobia holy wow. Also bullying and self-harm. 3.25 stars. So here's the thing: this was one of my most anticipated books for the second half of this year. I mean...a plus sized fashion blogger who's really into palaeontology? YES PLEASE. And for the most part, ...

    This was so, SO BEAUTIFUL!!! And everything I needed it to be, especially as a paleontologist-hopeful!!! This not only brings light to all the problems in the paleontology field, but also talks so much about what life is actually like when you're plus sized!! This is definitely one of ...

    I'm trying to read as much YA about girls in STEM as possible (yainterrobang.com/list-stem-ladies/). This one features a girl going to a palaeontology summer internship. It's full of hijinks and romance and scandal, with some great points about women in STEM. ...

    Will be doing a video review on this! I'll link it soon! ...

    When I read books where characters continuously make poor choices, it irritates me and makes me feel bad for the character. I did enjoy the romance and the science part of this book. I think there need to be more books with main enjoy science and learning. It was nice to see that in...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. My inner geek self and paleontologist enjoyed this book very much! It was funny emotional, filled with bones and discoveries! Natalie's story who arises to the occasion of making her own mark in the world was great...

    This is an awesome book. I was intrigued by the premise of a girl in a male-dominated industry (an industry I haven?t read any novels about before, no less), and got so much more. Natalie struggles with some serious self-esteem issues due to her body type, and she has reinvented he...

    Don't be fooled by the title of Baguchinsky's "Mammoth", it is nothing if not lighthearted. Narrator Natalie is a rising high school junior and paleontology geek who comes to rely on a persona of geek chic couture and constant stream of "awesomeness" to navigate high school as a fat gi...

    "You can?t hide from assholes. You just have to learn to deal." Women in Stem is a hard thing to come by and this puts women right where they belong. That is obviously at the top! One thing I wasn?t expecting to happen was me wanting to learn more about Paleontology. It was ...

    This sounds so fricking cool?? I love dinosaurs, y'all ...

    Do yourself a favor and check this out. Natalie is the smart, tenacious, and relatable heroine we've been waiting for! ...
