Review: On the Fence – Kasie West

Review: On the Fence – K..

Just when I think I can’t love Kasie West any more than I already do she goes and writes a book like On the Fence and I have to find a way to love her more. She completely nailed it with this one. She got the humor, the seriousness, and the uncertainty and the fear of growing up down to perfection. I laughed, quite a lot actually, and I teared up. Honestly it was everything I hoped for and more. On the Fence is about Charlie, a tomboy with three older brothers, a cop for a dad, and a next […]

Review: Rebel – Amy Tintera

Review: Rebel – Amy Tint..

For the longest time, the trend in YA seemed to be the trilogy. Every single series seemed to be composed of three separate books to tell the story. But lately, there seems to be a new trend, the duology. The trilogy exists still, obviously, but it seems more and more authors are leaning towards this format of two books and I can’t say I mind it. Why am I starting this review with this tidbit? Well because Rebel is the conclusion of a duology and I think Tintera nailed it by going this route. Rebel picks up right where Reboot […]

Review: The One – Kiera Cass

Review: The One – Kiera ..

Never in my entire life have I read a series of book that has given me more anxiety than The Selection series. The Selection was a minor case of anxiety. The Elite pushed it to a whole new level, to the point that I missed my train stop and wanted to throw the book a time or two. And then there is The One. If I thought the nerves were bad for The Elite I was 100% wrong. The pit in my stomach reading The One was astronomical. I mean seriously Kiera Cass, seriously! The One is the final chapter […]

Review: Free to Fall – Lauren Miller

Review: Free to Fall – L..

Straight up, I am fangirl crushing on Lauren Miller. I can’t help it. I honestly have no free will over this. Her books have made me do it. I first fell in love with Ms. Miller when I read her debut book Parallel (review). I’m a sucker for parallel life stories that emulate the amazing Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors. I was basically hooked from the first page. Then I heard about her second book, Free to Fall, and I was intrigued. It was completely different from Parallel but also really relevant to our current times and how technology takes […]

Review: The Taking – Kimberly Derting

Review: The Taking – Kim..

  This book was just greatness. So great in fact I’m not sure where to start. I guess I should start by saying that at first when I read the description, I didn’t think this book was for me. I’m not one to read and love books about aliens and alien abduction. But a fellow reading junkie was reading it and talking it up. Since I had a copy I decided to go for it. And in a word, fan-freaking-tastic! I loved loved loved this book and it has become my first 5-star read of 2014(I’ve had many since. HEHE). […]
