I don’t how Kasie West does it but she always manages to write these cute romances that leave my heart all a flutter. P.S. I Like You is no exception.     P.S.

From that day forward, Cade and Lily have been sworn enemies. In order to get through high school under the radar, Lily keeps to herself and writes songs in her notebook. It… Read more »

I first heard about this book from Nikki at There Were Books Involved. I promptly forgot about it until my friend Jackie came over for a week long visit and we somehow got on the topic of how I periodically review young adult books. She then told me that her friend Mel was publishing a book, and named it. That brought Nikki’s WoW post back into a new light and I was super excited for it ever since. I’m sorry to say that it didn’t live up to my expectations. Though, honestly, I set the bar pretty high. I’ve heard… Read more »

I will admit, I had a lot of problems with the first one, but it was essentially a train wreck that I read really quickly. Like bad tv and junker movies, it seems like I can’t stay away from the same in books. Essentially, this book falls in the junker category. Sure, it’s an awful lot of fun to read and exciting at times, but there’s really not any substance to it. I read Fire & Flood some time last year, and it was a plot hole ridden mess with a protagonist I hated. This time around, they fill in… Read more »

Alright, hey. So, I’ve only read one of Maggie Stiefvater’s other books and that book was The Raven Boys. I really loved that novel, it was awesome and interesting and different. But, then, I remembered that I had also tried to read Shiver, which was a little boring and ultimately didn’t hold my interest when I tried to read it. I do love me some kelpies, though. They might be one of my favorite mythological beasts. The parts involving the flesh eating water horses were always interesting and generally full of blood. That was something I enjoyed. The parts in… Read more »

Ugh, okay. So, this book wasn’t high flying on my radar or anything. It never really was. I’d tried some of the author’s other books and they just didn’t jive well with me. I must have been in a poor place to deal with character driven novels, or perhaps it was the characters themselves. Or, maybe it was the authors unique voice. Whatever it was, I couldn’t immerse myself into them, so I never picked up this series. But, with the advent of the third book in the series plopping down on Netgalley, everyone went a twitter with excitement. Then… Read more »

Keeping in the spirit of all things that go bump in this month, I decided to pick up another book featuring ghosts and psycho killers. I may have mentioned before that I am big fan of the slasher style YA mystery. I thought Famous Last Words was going to make the list of my favorites but unfortunately, I think this book is just going to end up on my list of so so YA horror. Why? Because the nicest thing I can say about Famous Last Words is I didn’t hate it. Famous Last Words is a book that I… Read more »

For me, Fire & Flood is actually 3.5 stars and I rounded it up to 4 stars. I liked Fire & Flood, but I am not in love with this book. I don’t want to shout from the rooftops or start buying copies for all my friends yet. I think the book has potential. The best way I can describe how I feel about Fire & Flood is for me it was like a bland date with a guy you thought would knock your socks off. In the end, you like the guy, might even go on another date, but… Read more »

Tella Halloway is annoying, and everything I despise in a protagonist. She’s not that bright, worried more about the shallow things in life like nail polish and fashion, and she’s stuck in the middle of nowhere with her family. Her brother is terminal, and her relationship with him is almost normal, considering. Tella immediately receives a mysterious package, with instructions on how to become a Contender in something called the Brimstone Bleed. It’s a race, you guys, across several different and grueling biomes. The winner gets a cure for the terminally ill patient of their choice. Catch? Her parents are… Read more »
