The cliff hanger killed me!

I have to admit that it felt like Ari forgave Jackson too easily, but whatever. it was interesting how Melissa West talked about lodge. There was a war about to break loose on Earth because Lodge is dying and they need to go somewhere with life. I really wondered wether...

I just couldn't get into this book

I thought I'd try this out after hearing this book was going to become a CW show. At first, it was promising, but then, it wasn't. The characters just felt...flat. I don't know if that makes any sense but it might if you read it. I felt like they had...

I have to admit, I enjoyed this book for the better part of the novel, until I realized just how annoying and pathetic Kennedy is. She kept crying about how everyone kept leaving her and how she basically needed love to survive. What kind of message is that supposed to...

I'm sorry, was this supposed to be serious?

I laughed at all of the dirty parts. yes. Laughed. Why is that? Because they were just so pathetic and unrealistic and absurd , and disgusting. Kyler and Sydney were just like armentrouts other characters that if you took the names out I couldn't tell the difference. Another reason why...

This was just not some sob story About how a girl got pregnant and was dumped at some weird pregnancy school somewhat in the near future. No. This book was about Elvie, a girl who is funny, knows about mechanics, and actually is smart! Yay for not being an average...

If you thought Rainbow Rowell couldn't get any better after her novel Eleanor and Park guess again. Now, take what you thought of that book and times it by a hundred million million! And you, my friends, have gotten this amazing spectacle of a book. Cather "Cath" is a shy,...

Egypt game

I remember reading this all the way back in sixth grade for English class. It was a pretty good book, filled with mystery, some action, and of course, a little bit of Egypt for the Egypt game. From what I remember, Aprils mom is an actress and doesn't really care...
