The Secret History Of Us

Ahh, good ol' amnesia, and accidents. Nothing like a story that you have to piece together. Makes me feel like Sherlock Holmes--and I love Sherlock Holmes. In the case of this book, I was Sherlock Holmes,--who deduced the entire mystery of the story in a short couple...

Remember Me Forever

This is one of the very few books that I found it hard to say farewell to. With characters that gave me something to root for, and something to long for--I definitely found it hard to say goodbye. This is one of those series, that I think...

Missing

With strong characters, a deserving hero, and heroine--I'd want to give this five stars--but the points in which it failed--makes it impossible for me to do so. What I liked:Again the strong characters, every character had their own believable story. I rooted for every character--well aside from...

Vigilante

This story's strength and focus is female empowerment, and while I am always here for female togetherness--the lack of realism in this novel dragged down an otherwise decent read. Hadley's best friend is dead. She committed suicide after battling the after effects of being raped. After being...

A Thriller With A Great Setting, and Intriguing Characters

The setting of this book did not disappoint. I could envision this part of Africa in my mind--although I don't believe the actual city the author chose is real, but still. It was like a part of it was with me while I read. This one was...

Quirky Mystery, Reminiscent of the Scooby Doo Gang, Only Smaller...

We Knew It Was You is a quirky mystery with characters that are both the worst and the best at solving crimes. These characters have on emission, and that is to stop crimes--but not put themselves in danger, at least not to much. Benny and Virginia aren't...

An Adorable, Swoon-Worthy Read

People may think me harsh when it comes to reviews. But, I like to think that I'm just honest. I don't know about you but I definitely want to read a review that is true to it's word, literally. I don't want to read a review by a reviewer I...

Important, Timely, and Heart-breaking-ly Tragic

I really wanted to be articulate here. I wanted to make sure that I didn't say anything to sway anyone from this book. I wanted to make sure that I did the book justice. I had so many, "I want to make sure's," that I almost talked myself out of...

Stunning, gritty debut with a shocking ending.

At the core of this story, is a stunning and realistic tale of poverty, and hardships. Jackson does an amazing job of painting a true to life picture, of life in "prison," and the struggles of a young girl, just dealing with a lot. Needless to say...

An heart-pounding mystery with an ending that unfortunately falls flat.

A heart-pounding mystery that keeps you on the edge of your seat, until you fall right off, flat on your face with disappointment. This book did so well until it got to the end. Let's talk about the story a bit first... Five boys went into the...

The Baby? Oh, Baby...

The Baby was not at all what I was expecting. The cover paints this picture, as if this book was to be a lighter contemporary--when it fact it's not all that light. It tackles more serious topics than it does anything fun. True to the title, The Baby is...

Lies, Half Truths and Scandals!

Warning:Slight sexual content. One of the better YA mysteries/thrillers I've read. I'm still not entirely sure I'm sold on the ending (I retract that statement--you'll see why), but the story itself definitely had me going. What I liked: The pacing and the suspense of...

Gruesome tale of death and survival

This is one of the more stranger books I've read, but it was unique in every way. Think Miss Peregrine's Home for Pecuilar Children meets anything Tim Burton can come up with--in a weird dystopian world. Got that? Okay good. :) The Call is not for the...

P.S. I LIKE YOU is cuteness personified!

This book is cute with a capital cute. WHAT I LIKED: The characters, they weren't very, like, out there or anything but they felt very real,and very true to real life. Everything about them seemed like something, or someone I can actually see, and feel. They felt...

BLACK SWAN FOR TEENS

Shiny Broken Pieces brought the drama and then some. What's written as a books--reads like a Freeform tv show. Continuing right where book one left off, Shiny Broken Pieces, sits in the pretty aftermath of the revenge and drama that Tiny Broken Pieces served. ...
