Call me simple but I love the young adult fantasy genre. Give me a well planned plot with tremendous world building, don’t make it more than 400 pages long because […]

Kasie West is one of my “happy place” authors. I can count on her to write a great young adult story that won’t weigh me down with angst, nasty unnecessary drama, or leave me dangling off a cliff when all is said and done.
What Light by Jay Asher came out on October 18th but I really wanted to wait a bit to put my review out because this is such a great story to help you get in the mood for Christmas! It’s about Christmas trees! Lots and lots of Christmas trees!!
You ever look for something so hard, say for instance your eye glasses, and you look… and you look… and you look, only to suddenly find them shoved up on your head? A lot of times, that’s what love is like.
I can appreciate a deep, meaningful read but sometimes, I love a good no-brainer romance that’ll put a smile on my face as I’m reading the last sentence. Anytime […]
Game On is a great young adult story with substance and sweetness all rolled together.
I’m just going to get this out of the way first: This story has a love triangle that isn’t a love triangle. There is an obvious couple who […]
Ahhh… the sun shines brighter on the days I read a book by Kasie West. She is one of my favorite summer-time authors. I think my head might explode if […]
Realistic and an impossibly horrible situation – that’s what drew me to this young adult contemporary story of hope and a bit of romance.
Non-spoiler: If you don’t like love triangles, just don’t read this story.
What happens when the most uptight, over-achieving, driven student in the senior class ends up getting drunk as a skunk and wakes up next to the school’s most notorious playboy? A whole lot of character growth, sprinked with sweet, tender family moments that make this contemporary romance an easy winner for a summer time quick read.
I’m not one to read girly, friendship-type books. I actually run away in the opposite direction from them. But when I picked up the review copy of The Unexpected Everything, I had no clue that ‘friendship’ was a pretty big part of the story’s plot. Turned out, it wasn’t that painful for me to endure.
The Last Boy and Girl in the World turned out to be different than what I expected from the synopsis. From the cute cover to the fun-loving teens having parties in the water-logged streets in the synopsis, this story sounded like it would be a light look at a serious time in a town’s transformation.
I love a good young adult romantic romp. They are great for cleansing the brain after dramatic, stress filled reads or for reading on cold, rainy days. These simple, sunshine-filled books are not meant to be serious. I only ask that they have a decent story and be well written. This book accomplished one of these requirements and kind of sort of missed on the other. Let me explain…
Intriguing… that about sums it up for me.
That was kind of awesome… I just kind of fell in love with reading this story. It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that I wanted to keep running back to pick up and get lost in. Yep, I kind of forgot I had a family for a bit there.
One of the best young adult books I’ve read since…
Do you need something to read over the holidays? Desperate for a book for the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon? If you enjoy innocent (wink) young adult romance that tickles new adult, you will love this holiday themed anthology.
