  • Review: You're Welcome, Universe

    “You're Welcome, Universe” started out really well. I really loved how the main character stood up for her friend when it came to a slur. The school was in no hurry to stand up and do anything. I think we all strive to have a friend like that. But around...

  • Review: Just Fly Away

    “Just Fly Away” is a book I thought I was going to end up not finishing. As the ending came near I ended up liking it more than I thought I was going to. Lucy's relationship with her gramps really came through during the story. I really enjoyed how this...

  • Review: Becoming a Legend The Blue Eyes Trilogy, #2

    The series started out intriguing and I had high hopes for it, but I didn't really want to go on to finish the trilogy at the end of the "Becoming a Legend". The premise is interesting and there's lots of excitement, but with all things considered (Ari's...

  • Review: Eerie Eerie, #1

    Eerie is a bit different than other books. The author not only gives you a dark eerie suspense, but it's funny too. The book will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. You may find yourself looking over your shoulder at any little sound and then...

  • Review: Letters to the Lost

    This book, OMG!! I didn't know if this was going to be a win for me. The contemporary YA genre is so hit and miss for me that I usually go into them with the thought that I won't be finishing the book. So when I find something like this that I'm just...

  • Review: Definitions of Indefinable Things

    “Definitions of Indefinable Things” is about a girl who suffers from depression and the boy she falls for who has a pregnant ex-girlfriend. I really didn't think I was going to mesh well with the MC Reggie, but wow how wrong I was. I loved the aspects...

  • Review: Recruits Recruits, #1

    I really wanted to like “Recruits”. The premise was very interesting but the writing just didn't work for me. The teens are eighteen years old. So for me, I think this should have been written as a high young adult to even new adult, but the way the story...

  • Review: Hello, Universe

    “Hello, Universe” is a great book. It’s sweet and about friendship. I really liked this one and I don't like many middle grade stories anymore. “Hello, Universe” is a great book and should be added to the school library shelves. It’s about standing up...

  • Review: Fanning the Flames Going Down in Flames

    Note: I haven't read the previous books in this series, so this review will definitely reflect that and readers who have read the previous books should take what I say with a grain of salt. I found it difficult to get into the story. I wasn't sure what...

  • Review: For Love and Honor

    I have enjoyed every book that I have read of Jody Hudlund. I loved “For Love and Honor” just as much! This medieval fantasy series is one of my absolute favorites! The author has a way of grabbing you and keeping you reading until the very last page....

  • Review: Seven Days of You

    I went into “Seven Days of You” a little skeptical. The reason being, I thought it was going to be very insta-lovey and melodramatic book. But Vinesse did a great job of writing a very grounded and realistic story that could absolutely happen at this...

  • Review: Gardenia

    For me the cover to this one says it all. I was so excited to read this story about a girl who knew how long everyone had to live. It sounded exciting and wondrous but what I found was a slow story with almost no real direction. I ended up putting it...

  • Review: This Is All Your Fault, Cassie Parker

    “This Is All Your Fault, Cassie Parker” by Terra Elan McVoy reminds me of the angst and drama that accompanies one’s journey through childhood. The giggly security of doing things with one’s best friend and the tragedy of trying to fit in is vividly portrayed....

  • Review: Allegedly

    “Allegedly” covers the court system and how African Americans are treated within it. It does a great job with this. However, it does also have a lot of issues, in my opinion. Within the first few pages we have the three quotes. "You'd think someone would...

  • Review: Lost in Wonderland The Twisted and the Brave Book 1

    To be totally honest, this novel took my by complete surprise. It’s intriguing, enchanting, and gave me a whole new view on the mythos of Wonderland. It moves very smoothly, switching from Wonderland to the real world and back again with ease. It also...

    This book intrigued me from reading the synopsis but as soon as I got it in my hands and started reading, I was left confused with no understanding of what was happening and going on. Maybe because this was translated from a Finnish was the reasoning...

  • Review: Flicker and Mist

    The idea of people who could become invisible was a very neat concept. I was drawn in by the story but soon found out that it was not really for me. The descriptions of their world and the animals that lived there were not enough to paint a vivid picture....

  • Review: Midnight Hour A Shadow Falls Novel

    This can't be the end!!! I’m so sad that this is the conclusion!!! “Midnight Hour” is the book I've been waiting for!!! It’s in Miranda's POV and wow just wow!!! Words cannot express how I feel! I love that although Miranda is a witch she is not perfect...

  • Review: The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland

    “The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland” for me was a mess. It was manic to the extreme and I just couldn't get into it. I felt very confused and didn't connect with any of the characters. The story felt very bipolar and it just didn't work out for me.

  • Review: The Da Vinci Code - The Young Adult Adaptation

    I decided to read part of this book alongside its adult counterpart. And what I found was the adult version reads as a book two to “Angels and Demons”, The YA version reads as a book one. Other differences were we get a letter to the reader in the YA...

  • Review: Girls Like Me

    This book is in the format of text messages and verse!!! So the first thing I noticed when I opened this book was that it was written in verse, then it changes to text messaging down the line. There are a lot of broken lines and it just made the book...

  • Review: We Are Still Tornadoes

    “We Are Still Tornadoes” was great and positive surprise for me. When I started reading it I realized that it was written in epistolary form. This is not my favorite type of writing, but since I really liked the first few pages I decided to keep on reading....

  • Review: All Her Secrets

    “All Her Secrets” is about Victoria, the daughter of a famous genius inventor, who was almost murdered four years ago, but then recently gets kidnapped. I love a good thriller and this was an okay one. The main thing that bothered me was that I didn’t...

  • Review: Hellbound The Lost Souls Trilogy, #2

    It’s hard to come up with the right words to review “Hellbound”. It was even better than book one in The Lost Souls Trilogy. The characters come alive in this book and I was just caught up flipping the pages. This book just has so much going on and I...

  • Review: Bounce

    Guess what, it’s Endy Again! I have been on a roll with reading lately and “Bounce” was really good. What would it be like to get a new family each day? Would that family be better than the last? Would it be better than the one you were born with or ended...

  • Review: The Swap

    Endy here with another review! I haven't been reading many middle grade books this year as I’m outgrowing them. But this one worked out really well for me. My mom told me about some older movies called Freaky Friday and well I really love the story about...

  • Review: Disruption Book #1

    Jessica Shirvington has just jumped up to being one of my favorite young adult authors. This book ends with you wanting more of the story. Yes I NEED to know what happens next. There is a semi-cliffhanger going on here. I don't normally like cliffhangers...

  • Review: Spindle

    Something that should perhaps be made clear: this book is set somewhere in time where there are cotton mills, orphan trains, and when "No Irish Need Apply" is in full effect. I walked into this story thinking that it'd be full of hardship the way a fairytale...

  • Review: The Boyfriend Bet Boyfriend Chronicles, #2

    I enjoyed "The Boyfriend Bet". It was a fast, fun, mostly sweet read. Zoe and Grant were really cute together, and I appreciated Zoe and her unwillingness to take anything lying down. Chris Cannon did a good job of writing Grant's back and forth and conflict...

  • Review: Forward My Story Young Readers' Edition

    I found this story interesting, inspiring and one that I would probably say is geared towards high school/upper middle school students. While Ms. Wambach does take you through her professional and personal life, the way she did is was to make herself...

  • Review: The Amateurs The Amateurs Book 1

    This is my first ever read by Sara Shepard and I am very impressed. The notoriety of her Pretty Little Liars series (which is also a TV show) knows no bounds. I really didn't think I would like this book that much. The description was intriguing enough...

  • Review: Grace and Dignity The Ark of the Sacred Scrolls, #1

    This is a solid story and I enjoyed it. I read the acknowledgments and it says it's based on the idea of a board game. There are plays on words, and the "puzzles" are cute. There is even a section in the back listing the characters and the glossary. I'd...
