Review: Being Friends with Boys

This book was an impulse buy a few weeks ago at a spare-the-moment Barnes and Noble stop. My friend picked this book up randomly and I decided to buy it. Plot: The blurb is so completely off of what this book is about it actually is...

Review: If I Lie

Originally posted on http://musingsofabookowl.blogspot.com. I've been waiting for this book to come out forever. So, when it finally came out today, I dragged my mom to the book store to get it (along with a few others that came out today). It wasn't even out on the...

Review: Stolen

Originally posted on http://musingsofabookowl.blogspot.com. I bought this book on a whim at a Barnes and Noble because my non-bookish (let's face it, none of my friends are bookish, but she reads occasionally) friend was with me and told me that I just had to read it....

Eh.

Jenny Han has always been one of my favorite authors. I often find myself reaching for her Summer series on my shelves to reread them. I was a little disappointed by this book. I was ecstatic when I heard that she was coming out with a new book, but...

Is this book all it's cracked up to be?

This book hasn't been at my library and I finally got my hands on it a few days ago. It took me a little while to get into, but was still a pretty good book. Plot: Plotwise, this book was a long the lines of Between by Jessica Warman....

Not My Cup of Tea

Before a few weeks ago, I had never even so much as picked up a Sarah Dessen book, let alone read one. And, to be perfectly honest, I wasn't all that impressed. I would have been very disappointed if I had paid full price for it. But I purchased it...

Where Can I Sign Up?

My first thought: this is just like The Hunger Games. My second thought: this is so much better than The Hunger Games. Yes, better, but still hauntingly similar. It's no secret that this book is a Bachelor and Hunger Games mash up, but it was done very well. ...

Amazing.

I had heard nothing but good about this book and decided that I needed to give it a go. I recommend that you stop whatever you're doing right now, and find a way to get your hands on this book if you haven't already. Buy it at a book store,...

Didn't Make My List.

It took me three trips to Barnes and Noble before I finally managed to find this book in stock. I can't say that it was worth it. I wanted to like it, I really did. It had really good potential. Plot: When I read the blurb I...

Paranormal Knock-Out

I've been meaning to read this book for a while, but it was always the book I'd put back down when I found a better one at the bookstore. I was combing over the library's YA section while I was on lunch and snagged it to read at the desk....

Not what I expected- in a bad way.

So let me just start of by stressing how completely hysterical this book is. And just because I cannot get over this fact, here's one of my favorites (check against final copy): "I want this Taylor downloaded to a memory stick as tiny as his you-know-what." ...

Delightful Read

This book wasn't the fluffy chick lit you think it would be, but it isn't quite as deep as you think it would be either. It's a mixture of both, not really straying too far to either side of the line. Over all, it was a pretty good read. ...
