Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  As usual I’ve chosen a sequel to a book that I really enjoyed, The Choosing.  I don’t know if I knew at the time there would be a sequel, but I had hoped for […]

I actually got an ARC of this book through Books for Trade on Twitter, but originally I got an e-galley from HarperTeen and Edelweiss.  I really wanted a physical ARC though, to match the physical ARC I have of the first book, The Jewel, which I got at BEA in 2014.  So thanks to all […]

First, thanks to St. Martin’s Griffin and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an egalley of this sequel to Feuds.  This was a good conclusion to the story.  While there were still some formulaic bits to it, it was still different in its own ways for different parts of the story.  And I’m pretty happy […]

I’d been interested in this book for awhile, the cover of course caught my eye first, then I read the synopsis and was really intrigued.  I got this book in February through the Books & Bloggers swap hosted by Chaotic Goddess Swaps.  My swap partner was Emily from Follow the Yellow Book Road, and this […]

First, thanks to Edelweiss and Tyndale House Publishers for allowing me to read an egalley of this title.  I’ve always wanted to read a book by her father, Ted Dekker, but just have never gotten around to it.  So when I saw this title, I went ahead and requested it because it did sound like […]

First, thanks to Edelweiss and Knopf Books for Young Readers for allowing me to read an e-galley of this book.  I really liked the theme of the book, and the idea behind it.  It is a great story idea, and I even liked most of how it was told.  My only issue was that I […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. I’ve chosen a book by an author that I don’t think of with YA normally, but I’m pleased to see one.  I’ve really enjoyed his Infected series, and was so excited when I got […]

My two book choices today couldn’t be farther apart in what type of story they are. The first is a YA Science Fiction/Dystopian story, a series that I LOVE!  The second is a classic realistic fiction story about an inner city school and what a teacher who works there deals with while trying to do […]
