First, thanks to Edelweiss and Random House for Young Readers for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I read the first book, Dualed, back in the summer of 2012.   So it had been awhile since I’d read it. But I remembered the main points of the story. In this futuristic society, people […]

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this from the publisher, Feiwel and Friends.  This is a series that I have enjoyed the whole way through.  And the final book in the series was definitely full of all kinds of twists and turns.  Moments of holding your breath, and not wanting to put […]

As usual I must first thank Edelweiss and Katherine Tegen books for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title. This was a quick read, a good little mystery. The main character is of course Vivian Divine. She is a teen movie star.  Not too long ago her mother was killed after being threatened. […]

If you follow me, you know the drama I’ve had about this book.  I won it in a contest probably 2nd week of April.  Had hoped/assumed that it would be to me by the time I got to meet the author on May 8th.  It wasn’t.  So I ended up buying a copy that night. […]

First I have to say thanks to Entangled Publishing and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this I didn’t get it until kind of late, right around the time it was going to be published, and then I still had to read the 2nd one, The Liberator, before I could get to […]

Once again I find myself between reviews.  I’m only halfway through the current book, so probably won’t be able to review it until tomorrow.  I wasn’t feeling the Booking Through Thursday question today, so I’m going to join in to this fun meme. Especially since the book I’m reading right now has a really fun […]
