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 […]
I just read a super hyped-up book and it lived up to all the hype!! Who would have guessed?!?!
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.
I think this is the very first book I’ve read that’s been translated from it’s original language. I’m not quite sure what to make of it or how to […]
I have been wanting to read a book by Amanda Hocking ever since she hit the “scene” with her huge hit Switched, about trolls. Of course I own it, along […]
I enjoy reading young adult when it’s written from a teen boy’s point of view, especially if it’s authored by an actual MALE. Female authors do okay with […]
Anytime I can get into someone else’s mind and see their point of view, I’m all for it. If that point of view is so different, so unique and unlike anything I’ve witnessed, felt, or even known, you can’t hold me back!
I was expecting big things from Erin Summerill’s Ever the Hunted as soon as I read the synopsis and added the book to my TBR pile. Yes, there’s certainly a […]
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!!
“I did not see that coming” How often can you say that about a mystery, or about any book these days? Hey, how about a young adult book? Well, have I got a book for you!
Before I begin, can I just say that I love that the main character’s name is “Jill”?! What a completely normal, everyday name!! I have total love for that.
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 […]
I had been waiting for this book since December of 2015. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The cover caught my eye but it was the synopsis that nabbed me and reeled me in. And as readers, we’re surprised when a book turns out a little bit different than what we expected, whether for the good or the bad. Okay, maybe you aren’t but I am, every time it happens to me.
How did you learn about “love”? I’m talking romantic love. Not the family, you got to love ’em kind of “love”. Most people learn from watching the people around them. You learn what kind of love you want…
Color me clueless, but I had no idea the cover image was a rose engulfed in flame. Well, that kind of explains a lot…. Too bad it took me the entire story to figure it out because that really is a beautiful cover!
If I was asked after BEA 2016 to pick the one book I received that I was most intrigued about and excited to read, I would have answered Sarah […]
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 […]
By now you’ve most likely heard about the book Illuminae. It’s innovative, fast-paced, and extremely mind-numbingly contemplative. I’m sure many of my brain cells suffered in the reading of this book. […]
This is one of my favorite lines from Monty Python and it fits so many things in life. It just sings in my head whenever I come across […]
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 […]
I think I’m batting about 50% this month on books I’m reading. I’ve had a few lately that I’ve wanted to DNF but I managed to stick it out and finish them. Unfortunately, this particular book was one that actually made me more mad by the end.
Young adult urban fantasy is hard to find. GOOD young adult urban fantasy is even harder find. Forget about finding GOOD, DARK, INVENTIVE, and SMART urban fantasy in the young adult section… until Schwab’s This Savage Song.
