Since the moment I heard about this book, I wanted to read it. I was very intrigued by that synopsis! It turned out to be a lot more than that. Penna’s mom owns a restaurant and Penna begins working there for the summer after David leaves. There we meet a whole cast of characters that […]

Jeri Smith-Ready completely surprised me with Shine. So much happened! And nothing was left hanging! I seriously was in awe of just how much story was told in this last book. All the twists and new developments…all the closure. Just…wow. Lets talk a bit about the closure. And by closure, I mean Logan. I have […]
Brigitta is a girl who is at a point in her life where she’s trying to find where she fits or belongs in this world. Her family is very eccentric and she’s had a different kind of childhood. Brigitta’s very religious grandparents died a couple of years before and she was extremely close to her […]
You’re going to look at this list and think I’m boy crazy and I’m going to say, “You are so correct.” I can’t help it, it just happens that way. :) 1. There is only one woman on this list and her name is Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser. She is the amazing protagonist of […]
I now proclaim myself a complete and total Kristan Higgins fangirl. And this is only the second book of hers that I’ve read! But I’m positive that any of her books will move me, because, oh boy, did Somebody to Love move me, just like Until There Was You. What was really interesting and different […]

I haven’t read a book with a hockey player before, let alone a girl hockey player. And I want to find out what Katie has done and how Alec has helped her!
I was watching the last episode ever of One Tree Hill (TEARS!) and I came across a band I hadn’t heard of before but completely fell in love with. And it’s funny because that is what OTH did for me in so many episodes in its nine seasons, it introduced me to so, so many […]
This past Saturday I attended Houston’s annual Teen Book Con, where I got to hang out with some of my favorite bookish friends and see/meet some incredible authors. This was my second time attending and it was just as great. I can honestly say that I will attend Teen Book Con for as long as […]

TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.

Having devoured Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready this weekend—and still trying to come up with a review that will do it justice—I couldn’t stop hearing this song on a loop while reading it. I just felt it was so perfect for Aura and Zachary in this book.
The Vespertine was one of my favorite books last year, and with that ending, of course I was dying for a sequel! It completely stole my heart…and trampled it. I was incredibly heartbroken! In The Springsweet, Saundra Mitchell has redeemed my heart by mending our Zora’s. The most stand-out quality I’ve come to love about […]

I never imagined a story could be told so completely and vividly through photographs and a few words. Chopsticks sucks you in from the very first page and doesn’t let you go until the very last, at which point your reaction may be the same as mine: “Whoa…I don’t know what to believe!” The story […]
