A pretty intense ending and a great conclusion to the series

What I Loved: I really liked how we were thrust, once again, into the world of the hybrid institutes, with this one being even worse than the last. Everything felt more dangerous and more “high stakes” than it did before. I also like how much Addie and Eva have changed...

White does it again! I loved everything about this book

I really didn't know what to expect with Illusions of Fate. I knew I wanted to give it a try because of the author, whose other series I adored. I'm happy to report that this book does not disappoint. White continues to entertain me with her humorous writing, although it's...

An excellent debut with a strong female protagonist and a powerful message. I loved it!

Rites of Passage is just one of those gems that you never see coming. It definitely surprised me how much I enjoyed this book. I flew through it! It was just something about the storyline, the pacing, and the characters that drew me in. It was interesting seeing what students...

Not as thrilling and exciting as I was hoping, but okay

I finally got around to finishing this series and I read it straight through, for the most part. It did take me quite awhile to get through the whole series though as it wasn't as interesting as I was hoping. I liked that the first and second books dealt with...

Such a fun read!

I really love the fact that my daughter, a reluctant reader, enjoys this series immensely. She has practically all the books and really enjoys them. The characters are such fun and the crazy stuff they get themselves into is hilarious to her and always gets her attention. I like that...

Just as fun as the previous books!

My 9 year old loves this series and this book. She always gets a kick out of reading one of Dan Gutman's books and her go-to series is the My Weird School books. I loved that this one included puzzles and trivia for a more active reading experience. I think...

Stanley is too cute!

Definitely loving the crisp and clear illustrations in each of these Stanley books. They easily capture the attention of young kids and simple sentences and themes makes it easy for them to follow along. I like that it discusses a variety of important concepts like helping others and showing kids...

A fun read!

Very cute illustrations and and I liked how easy it was to read to my 3 year old. It was short and sweet. The illustrations were vibrant and crisp, yet simple and easily caught my child's attention. As far as picture books go, I really enjoyed this one for my...

A cute and fun read.

What I Loved: I really liked the characters. Mia and Ethan were great on their own, but I also enjoyed their interactions and how they both handled the internship. It was fun watching them fight their attraction to each other too and their little spurts of jealousy were so funny...

What would’ve been a different kind of “bad boy” story, turned into just another typical one

Oh, how I wish I had enjoyed this as much as everyone else. Since I really like Crownover’s Marked Men series, I thought I’d give this book a try, too. Unfortunately, while it has its merits, it definitely didn’t win me over or anything. I was pretty bored for the...

Interesting at times, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I was hoping

What I Loved: I really enjoyed Amy as a character. She was very strong-willed and determined, I honestly didn’t even focus on the fact that she has cerebral palsy because she didn’t let it define her. It was just a part of her, but she was so much more than...

A decent conclusion to an interesting trilogy

What I Loved: I loved the whole “Selection” parts of the book. Having America interact with the other girls, the Queen (who was in a Selection of her own), and Maxon was definitely the best parts of the book for me. While competing for a guys attention against several other...

A sequel that kept me glued to the pages, now that’s hard to pull off, and Lunetta did it well!

What I Loved: I loved seeing Amy back in the wild, surviving on her own with such skill. That was easily the best part of the the first book, just being in her head as she did what she needed to in order to survive. You get a good amount...

Different from what I thought it would be about, but still an interesting read

What I Loved: I loved when the main character, Claire, recounts each of the kisses she’s had in her life. Some where young and innocent, others were heated and memorable, and everything in between. It was definitely fun to experience all the aspects of “young love” and it’s pretty much...

An excellent retelling with a twist. I will definitely be keeping up with this series.

What I Loved: After hearing all the buzz about this book and seeing that it was a Wizard of Oz retelling/spin-off, I knew I had to give it a shot. For the most part, I was pleasantly pleased with this book. Paige’s writing is great and I loved this spin...
