If you didn't read this yet, what are you waiting for ???

Firstly, the cover jumped out at me first. The braid was so pretty, yet haunting. In this book we follow 13 year old Kyra. Kyra is a polygamist and is isolated from the outside world. Kyra has 20 brothers and sisters and her father has three wives. In the book,...

One of my favorite books as a child

I loved reading this when I was younger, and although some of the details are now hazy, I remember being yelled at for not listening when my parents said lights out ! Miri is a great character for young girls to look up to, and this book was an adventure...

Tacky

I love mermaid books, so when I saw this, I immediately grabbed it off the shelf and took it home. I was very disappointed with this book. Emma didn't seem as upset as she should have been when her best friend was killed by a shark for crying out loud!...

My favorite book of the series

The first book is my favorite, Kylie isn't as annoying as she gets in the later ones. I just have to say that later,on, it gets very annoying and very typical. This book kept me up until 2 am on a school night and I only got three hours of...

Road trips and exes

I remember reading Lauren Barnthold all the way back in middle school when I read her book, the secret identity of Devon Delaney. That book was filled with enough drama and lies to get me really into reading, so I thank her for that. While wondering the library shelves, I...

I tried to love it, I swear!

Zombies. While I love them as much as the next prepubescent hormonal teenage boy, I just couldn't get into this at all. I tried to like it, I swear, but Kate was just so darn Immature for all her boasting about being smart. Like when Rockys boyfriend got shot she...

Or worse, expelled !

I loved the books and out of all the movies, the first one is probably one of my favorites! The acting was cute because they are still kids and it was surprisingly good. I thought that for 2001, the effects were pretty good. The actor who plays Hagrid is just...

I seriously loved this book from start to finish. The characters develop right in front of you, so that was fun to see. This is told in the perspective of Justine, one of the five that have been chosen all the way back when they were six to do a...

I loved this book with a burning burning passion!

The Darkest Minds is a relatively new dystopian novel written in December. Unlike other Dystopians "cough" Gone *Cough!!!* this book does not glorify that children are great and adults are evil, and even though it shows that, it doesn't say it..not really. I really loved this book. Ruby was...

Aliens? Yes, please.

Despite some of the flaws, I loved it anyway and am excited to read the next installment in the series! Werewolves And vampires are sooo last year, so make way for aliens!
