Tattooed Heart

First of all, I read anything Michael Grant writes based on his name alone. I think he's one of the King Midases of YA literature--everything he writes is phenomenal. This series, while not my favorite, is still fantastic. uch an improvement on the first book, but...

Traffick

I love her books. That raw, in-your-face quality sets her apart from other YA authors. She talks about things they need to know about, not things they want to know about. This is the sequel to Tricks, and human/child sex trafficking is still one of the hardest things I've ever...

Manners and Mutiny

Well, the series is over. I really enjoyed it. Fun characters, harrowing action, a great steampunk world, and the best names in literature. This book was pretty exciting, in terms of the series as a whole. Sophronia was seriously badass, and the ending was a thrill ride. I need...

Zodiac

Wow, this was amazing. The plot was new, fun, and extremely exciting (although the planets characterized by traits were like Panem had a baby with the factions from Divergent). The Psy stuff was a little confusing, but makes more sense as the story continues. The characters were awesome--well-developed and likable...

Winter

I could not have asked for a better book to finish my 2015 reading goal. This series blew me away, and it will be one I recommend to my library patrons for years to come. The characters are fantastic and superbly developed, the settings are fun and adventurous, the...

This Is Where it Ends

As a teacher, this book scared the hell out of me. This is a constant fear when you work in a school, and it's even scarier because I've known kids like Tyler. That "nothing left to lose" attitude, the "everything was great until one event that, in retrospect as...

Salt to the Sea

This was wonderful. A bit slow to start, but it really picked up. The story is told in 4 voices, which lends a lot of authenticity to the account, as well as a lot of variance. As I always do around Holocaust Remembrance Day, I chose a WW2 historical fiction,...

Wax by Gina Damico

I love Gina Damico. I just do. I feel like she gets my sense of humor. I loved the Croak books, I loved Hellhole, and this is right up there with its predecessors. The characters are fun in this. Poppy is an absolute hoot, I love her friendship with Jill,...
