Spotlight Tour: Excerpt of Fur..

Praise for Furyborn “A page-turner. Readers will find the complex and flawed characters immensely relatable.

Spotlight: Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally (Excerpt + Giveaway)

Spotlight: Defending Taylor by..

I now understand culture shock: it’s me experiencing Hundred Oaks High for the first time. A lot of kids go here. Five hundred? A thousand? There are so many I can’t tell. At St. Andrew’s, there were only forty kids in my entire class. We lived on a calm, sprawling, green campus. Walking down the halls of Hundred Oaks feels like last-­minute Christmas shopping at a crowded mall. Two guys wearing football jerseys are throwing a ball back and forth. It whizzes by my ear. A suspender-­clad male teacher is hanging a poster for the science fair, while a couple […]

I originally read Defending Taylor as a draft and I loved it right away. It was one of those books that made you think how far you would go for a friend or someone you loved and if it would be worth it. It made you think about how mistakes can define you even when you don’t want them to and how people can perceive you differently. And it did all this in pure Miranda fashion, with humor, a hot boy prospect, and natural drama. Defending Taylor is about Taylor Lukens, high school senior and the daughter of a US […]

Blog Tour: Jesse’s Girl – Miranda Kenneally (giveaway)

Blog Tour: Jesse’s Girl ..

  I don’t deny the fact that I am a lucky girl. I got to read Jesse’s Girl for the first time when it was in draft form and wasn’t even called Jesse’s Girl. I fell in love with it then but I wanted to wait to review it until I had done a reread. Honestly, though, it didn’t matter. The book was awesome in draft and awesome in a final copy. Miranda Kenneally once again does what she does best and gives you awesome boys, wicked cool girls and a story that will keep you invested ill the end. […]

Blog Tour Book Spotlight: Some..

Excerpt from Some Kind of Normal:  “You got any?” he asked. “Any what?” “Tattoos?” “Me?” I had to laugh at that. Wow. Before last year that would have been grounds for major punishment. Heck, up until my senior year, I hadn’t been allowed to wear lip gloss. Now I wasn’t so sure that my mom would even notice, and since I avoided my dad whenever I could… “No,” I said, shaking my head. “My skin is untouched.” His eyes widened a bit, and I felt heat creep up my neck. Great. Now I was blushing again. “Untouched,” he said with […]
