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 out [...]
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.
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.
Veena’s review of Poison Princess (Arcana Chronicles Book 1) by Kresley Cole Young Adult published by Simon and Schuster 2 Oct 12 Poison Princess is author Kresley Cole’s foray into the Young Adult genre. Having read and enjoyed the author’s adult paranormal series and reading the rave reviews for this book, I picked it up. [...]
Liviania’s review of Infamous (Chronicles of Nick, Book 3) by Sherrilyn Kenyon Young adult urban fantasy published by St. Martins Griffin 13 Mar 12 Sherrilyn Kenyon may be famous for her Dark-Hunters series, but I don’t think I’ve read more than two books from the series. I have, on the other hand, been following and [...]
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 terrific [...]
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 of [...]
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. Her lyrical writing and amazing imagination give you characters you’ll remember for a long time, along with stories [...]
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. If an author gives me clever, I’ll be honest, they’re about halfway home right out of the gate. And that’s precisely what Sean Beaudoin’s [...]
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 that [...]
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 enjoyed, [...]
Ash’s Duckies Do Series Review of The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins Young Adult Science Fiction published by Scholastic Sept 08 – Aug 10 I’ve been wondering for days how to write this review, because I don’t think I can do these books justice. Suzanne Collins is an amazing author, and these books are [...]
Liviania’s review of My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers, Book 2) by Rachel Vincent Young adult urban fantasy released by Harlequin Teen 29 Dec 09 My changing feelings about Rachel Vincent’s novels have been well documented on the internet. What has been less documented is the fact that sometimes I read other people’s reviews before [...]
Liviania’s review of Rage: A Love Story by Julie Anne Peters LGBTQ Young Adult released by Knopf Books for Young Readers 8 Sept 09 Julie Anne Peters is known for writing novels about LGBTQ teens. While the main characters of Rage are lesbian or bisexual, it’s not a focus of the story. Johanna and Reeve [...]
Liviania’s review of Going Bovine by Libba Bray Young adult released by Delacorte 22 Sept 09 I’ve got to admit: I actually don’t like the Gemma Doyle books that much. I know, I’m a young adult fantasy lover with a thing for strong heroines. But in the end, Libba Bray left me somewhat cold with [...]
