Room for Love by Andrea Meyer

Can’t remember why I ordered this book into the store. But the plot of it sounded pretty good. The main character, Jacquie, is a writer for a film magazine, and also of course looking for love. She gets the idea to meet guys by answering their ads for roommates in the want ads. And decides […]

Son of a Witch by Gregory Magu..

I’m kind of embarrassed to say that I kind of dreaded picking up this book. Which is weird. I did like Wicked, but it was kind of a weird book. And so I figured Son of a Witch might be hard to read. But once I picked it up and started reading, it was easy […]

Elephant Run by Roland Smith

I am a HUGE Roland Smith fan. I was first introduced to his writing when he came to speak at my school, and I have yet to be disappointed by a book from him. I will admit this started out a bit slow, I was reading it just during lunch at school, and I think […]

Of course I had to read this novella set in the world of the Eclipse novel of the Twilight series. And of course I was done in less than 24 hours. I would have had it read before I went to bed that Saturday night, but I had to get up early the next morning, […]

Lies by Michael Grant

This is the 3rd book in the Gone series by Michael Grant. In this book it seems that we may actually find out what is going on outside the dome. It seems as if the parents are outside, all the adults, and they can see inside and kind of see what is going on. One […]

The Red Pyramid by Rick Riorda..

Wow, it’s been forever since I’ve posted, and I’m actually going to skip a few books I’ve read since I’m so behind. But I’ll jump back in with the new series by one of my favorite YA authors, Rick Riordan. While this had some really interesting stuff with all the Egyptian mythology mixed in, I […]
