Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

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.

Review: Compulsion by Martina Boone

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.
