Gone, Gone, Gone will blow you away, away, away!!!

Favourite Moments: 'If I could take all the machine guns in the world and bend them into hearts, I totally totally would, even if I got grazed by bullets in the process, which knowing me I probably would, because I'm a little bit of a klutz,...

This Book Will Put Your Life on Pause - John Green Does it Again!

"You are so busy being you that you have no idea how utterly unprecedented you are." ~ Augustus Waters My favourite thing about this novel is the way 17-year old cancer survivor Augustus Waters loves the narrator, 16-year old terminally ill Hazel Grace Lancaster. Believe me, it...

Catching Jordan is a Great Football Story with an Amazing Female Lead!

"I once read that football was invented so people wouldn't notice summer ending." So begins Catching Jordan. That is a great first line. It pulls you in. You don't have to be a fan of football to feel the absolute weight of that sentence. It's poignant. I...

One of the Best Young Adult Books I've Read in Recent Years - A Wonderful Journey of Enlightenment!

‘People always think there’s this huge hundred-foot-high barrier that separates doing good from doing bad. But there’s not. There’s nothing. There’s not even a little anthill. You just take one baby step in any direction and you’re already there. You’ve done something awful. And your life is changed forever.’ ~...

Para Vs. Normal - An Epic Battle with an Epic Pace

HUNTED comes alive on page one. It engaged me throughout with intrigue and a fast-pace that made the book unputdownable. Although a dystopian, this story was so deeply embedded in a contemporary setting that it became a believable allegory for the issues that teens (we all) face in today's society...

Possess will Possess You!

I enjoyed reading this one. Brought me back to my early years and the fear and intrigue that surrounded the Catholic faith I was once a part of.

Invincible Summer Hits You Like Nothing Else - Excellent Ride!

Don't judge a book by its cover. The one thing that didn't sit well with me about this title was the cover...it really didn't do justice to a beautiful story! I have no problem with the cover in and of itself...just that it doesn't foretell the beautiful story inside....
