Book Review : Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Book Review : Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

March 18, 2014 Book review 13 ★★★★

I’m not ready to burst in to Fangirl mode for this book but it’s a close call as I really ended up loving it.  I very nearly adored it but I just didn’t quite get there. My Recap of Fangirl: Cath is starting college and as someone who gets anxious… Read more »

Book Review : Counting to D by Kate Scott

Book Review : Counting to D by Kate Scott

March 3, 2014 Book review 5 ★★★½

This book is a book that stood out for a lot of right reasons.  I loved that it focused on a teenage girl with some learning difficulties in a realistic and empowering way. First Line of Counting to D “Numbers danced in the back of my mind.” My Thoughts on… Read more »

Book Review : Fine Young Gentlemen

Book Review : Fine Young Gentlemen

December 11, 2013 Book review 4 ★★★

Don’t be misled by the title!  The only part that is true is that they are young!  I’d prefer to label them Vile Young Brats.  But brats is a bit misleading as that implies mischievous and that is not the case, they are obnoxious.  If you are easily offended, just… Read more »

Book Review : Mine to Tarnish by Janeal Falor

Book Review : Mine to Tarnish by Janeal Falor

Book Review : Crash into You by Katie McGarry

November 25, 2013 Book review 8 ★★★★

Crash into You is a page turner with lovable characters that make you care about them. So much, that the last section of the book turned into a nervous, panic read for me. My Recap of Crash into You : Isaiah is the tattooed, pierced, angry foster kid that scares people away,… Read more »

Book Review : Sia by Josh Grayson

Book Review : Sia by Josh Grayson

November 20, 2013 Book review 12 ★★½

Sia is a young adult book about memory loss and reinventing yourself.  Unfortunately I have to admit that this book won’t linger long in my memory. My Recap: Sia wakes up on a park bench, disorientated and confused.  Not knowing where she is or even who she is.  After a… Read more »

Book Review : The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Book Review : The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

November 5, 2013 Book review 15 ★★★½

The Naturals is where YA fiction meets CSI.  Once you suspend reality and the impossibility of such a program existing, then it’s a fascinating look into the psychology of profiling.   My Recap of The Naturals: Seventeen-year-old Cassie is recruited to an FBI teen program called ‘The Naturals’.  This program… Read more »
