Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Great start, but some things didn’t work for me. In My Opinion: Worth a try! This was a case where the book starts are strong and so charming, but ends up being an okay read. After reading that synopsis, I was so excited to give this one a read. I love retellings and this sounded like fun. After only a few sentences in, I immediately liked it. There… Read more »

Book Review: Descent by Tara Fuller

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

One Line: I love Easton! In My Opinion: Add to cart! After all this time, we finally get Easton’s story! And I have to say, it was a pretty good story. Yay! Easton was exactly the kind of broken, bad boy I suspected and I loved that it took someone as pure and good as Gwen to make him realize the good in himself and his ability to love. It’s… Read more »

Book Review: That Summer by Sarah Dessen

Book Review: That Summer by Sarah Dessen

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★

One Line: Not much going on, but still a meaningful read. In My Opinion: Worth a try! This was my first Dessen book, but I have to say, I’m not overly impressed. Not to say that I didn’t enjoy it, I was just hoping for more. You know me, I’m an action kind of girl and I have a hard time really enjoying Contemporary YA as it is. I need… Read more »

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: It was nice seeing how this series ends, even if the book itself didn’t have much going on. What I Loved: I really liked getting to know Nick, Kevin, and Cass more. They each have a certain quality that sets them apart from everyone else and it was interesting seeing them handle this bot war. I enjoyed the fledgling romance between Cass and Farryn and I liked seeing… Read more »
