Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares – Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

I have to give all thanks for this book to Trisha over at Yellow, Green and Read All Over. She was reading it for the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon and recommended it to me, and I’m very glad she did. I have not read any of the Cohn, Levithan books before, but I […]

Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

I have been enamored with Rainbow Rowell since I first read Eleanor & Park in 2013. I have read her previous four books but her two YA’s have been my favorites. Oh Fangirl, how I loved thee…So when I heard Rowell was writing a book based off of the fanfic in Fangirl, I think […]

Ink and Bone – Rachel Caine

Ink and Bone – Rachel Caine

Ink and Bone is a spectacle of awesomeness. I really enjoy Rachel Caine, I have her Weather Warden, Outcast Season and Morganville Vampires series and have enjoyed them all. So when I heard she was starting a new series I grabbed the first book. Then I didn’t read it for […]

Claire Daly: Reluctant Soul Saver – Michele Brouder

I was not expecting Claire Daly: Reluctant Soul Saver to be as good as it was. It had a good premise, but I was afraid it would life up to the synopsis. I’m glad I was wrong. Claire is a seventeen-year-old who discovers she is an Illuminate, a warrior in the […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs

Knowing I was participating in a Haunted Scavenger Hunt (see rules here and how to enter here) blog hop I was looking for a semi-scary, ghosty book to review. I don’t like straight horror so when I saw this one on the Halloween display at my library I snatched it up. […]

No True Echo – Gareth P. Jones

No True Echo – Gareth P. Jones

♦ I was not expecting to like No True Echo as much as I did. I was expecting a cutesy YA book focusing on a romance with the time travel as the secondary story line. Instead I got a book depicting what happens when technology is used to further personal agenda. […]
