A Great Summer Read

Considering that Along for the Ride is one of my favorite Sarah Dessen's books, I was psyched to find out that her new book was going to take place in Colby. There is something about coming back to a setting with an author that you love. It's a...

A Great Conclusion to a Great Series

I'm going to do everything in my power to keep myself reigned in and keep this review short. That is hard for me to do with Ms. Hawkins's books. For me, I thought this was a great conclusion for the Hex Hall books. I have to...

Cute Spin-Off Series

First off, I loved the Hex Hall series. I mean the books were incredible. I just finished Spell Bound the other day *because I was determined to finish it before I read this one*, so that review will probably come next week. Anyways, Ms. Hawkins is delightfully...

A Cute Story Despite the Whole Death Thing

Brie (like the cheese) is a typical teenager. More like a typical teenage girl. She has what appears to be the perfect life. Dying puts a whole new perspective on things though. Especially when you die from a broken heart. Literally *with actual correct usage...

Good Mix of Contemporary with Fantasy

When radioactive poisoning was a huge threat during the Cold War, people started taking a little blue pill called Radiasure. The thing about this whole pill is that it started causing mutations in DNA. It wasn't seem much at first, but when a generation started to having children...

A Daring and Fabulous Companion Novel

For me, this was one of the best companion novels I've ever read. Katie McGarry's writing is just incredible. I went into the book still clinging to a shred of hope that Isaiah had a shot. I mean, I loved Isaiah in Pushing the Limits. Beth,...

An Amazing and Incredible Sequel

About halfway though the book, I started to get a feeling that the book would end with my heart in pieces scattered along the floor. And true to form, Julie Kagawa did not disappoint. My heart did in fact break, but the book was well worth the heartbreak....

An Excellent Debut!

Ok from page one, I was laughing out loud. In fact, I was laughing so hard that I had to read the first couple of pages to my mom, who was also began laughing out loud. Possibly, many people wouldn't enjoy the book half as much as I...

A Cute Story With Loads of Snark

The book was definitely a plus for having a very functional male POV *don't let the cover fool you*. I'm not a boy, and I still have no idea how they think, but I felt Jeff was very boy-esque. So that definitely made me happy. There are...

Pretty Much Fabulous!

Ok confession time. This is my first Jennifer Echols book, *GASP* but there needs to be an understanding that I didn't really get into YA until about two years ago. I had read in middle school, but it wasn't until the end of high school that I redeveloped...

The Perfect Summer Read...

Why I Loved It: The cover of this book screams cutesy chick lit full of adorable moments. That's what I was expecting, and thankfully the book delivered full on with some substance to make the book worth a read other than the cute story. And let me...

Great New Contemporary

I liked this book a lot more than I was expecting to. I was expecting a light contemporary read, with a lot of surfing, and a summer romance. That is not at all what I got, the exception being a lot of surfing. There was a lot...

Great YA full of bad boy goodness!

Why I Loved It: It doesn't get much more bad boy than Dante Walker, demon with swag. The boy has more moves, money, and overwhelming ego than most. Seriously, the boy thinks he's hot stuff. The idea is that Satan has "collectors" who go around trying...
