Tweet Stevie‘s review of Caron High News by Annabelle Jay Young Adult Lesbian Romance published by Prizm Books 28 Jul 15 One of the aspects of Young Adult fiction I particularly love is the opportunities it gives authors to experiment with narrative structure and plotting conventions. So here we get the story told from the […]

Tweet Stevie’s review of The Road to Her by Ke Payne Lesbian Young Adult published by Bold Strokes 16 Jul 13 While soap actors do feature from time to time in novels, romance or otherwise, it’s usually the divas that we get to see: the fading star who’ll do anything to clutch on to the […]
Tweet Ash’s review of Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi Young adult published by HarperCollins 03 Jan 12 With the success of The Hunger Games there have been a ton of similar dystopian books, most of which I avoid unless I hear a lot about it. I don’t want to read books that come […]
Tweet Ash’s review of Poison Princess (Arcana Chronicles book 1) by Kresley Cole Young Adult published by Simon and Schuster 2 Oct 12 Kresley Cole decides to try her hand at young adult, and she has definitely succeeded, in my opinion. I couldn’t put Poison Princess down until the last page was read.
Tweet Ash’s review of Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson Young Adult Paranormal published by HarperTeen 09 Oct 12 I haven’t read too many books featuring Valkyries, and none of them were young adult. Throw in a ‘brother’s best friend love interest and I was sold.

Tweet Sandy M’s review of Try Not to Breathe by Jennifer R. Hubbard Young Adult published by Viking Juvenile 19 Jan 12 As most of you who read my reviews know, I’m not a stickler for accuracy or total believability and realism in my romance novels. That doesn’t mean a lot to me when given […]
Tweet Liviania’s review of If I Tell by Janet Gurtler Young Adult published by Sourcebooks Fire 1 Oct 11 I knew almost nothing about the book when I began If I Tell. That’s a good situation to go into the book with, because it may be slim, but If I Tell covers a wide range […]
Tweet Sandy M’s review of A Clockwork Fairytale by Helen Scott Taylor Paranormal Young Adult published by Helen Scott Taylor 26 Aug 11 I became a fan of Helen Scott Taylor with her first book, The Magic Knot.

Tweet Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of You Killed Wesley Payne by Sean Beaudoin Young Adult crime noir published by Little Brown 01 Feb 11 Clever goes a long way with me.

Tweet Ash’s review of The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting Young Adult Paranormal published by HarperCollins 15 Feb 11 With me, a book doesn’t have to have the best writing, it doesn’t have to be deep and thought provoking. In fact, I don’t like those books much. I want to be happy when I turn […]
Tweet Liviania’s review of Unraveled (Intertwined, Book 2) by Gena Showalter Young adult urban fantasy released by Harlequin Teen 31 Aug 2010 I like Gena Showalter. But even an author you really like can write a novel that doesn’t quite work for you. Unraveled falls into that category. There were parts of it that I […]
