Tomorrow Land by Mari Mancusi My rating: 4 of 5 stars First I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read the egalley of this book. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, although I know of her from seeing her books at the bookstore where I work. So the premise sounded […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. This week I have a book I’m waiting for in 2 ways.  I just found on Netgalley the 3rd book in a series I really enjoy, The Bar Code series by Suzanne […]

Fever by Lauren DeStefano My rating: 4 of 5 stars I waited so long to read this from when I got to read the first book in the series, Wither. I wished really bad I’d get an ARC of it since I’d gotten to read Wither as an ARC. But it didn’t happen, so I […]

Revealing Eden by Victoria Foyt My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is another time when I wish Goodreads would let us give half stars. This was good. Not quite a 4 for me, but really not as low as a 3 either. I did enjoy this book. When I had to put it down, […]

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver My rating: 4 of 5 stars First, I have to say thanks to my employer, Barnes and Noble, and also Harper Collins Children’s Books for giving me the chance to read this as an Advanced Readers Copy. Okay, once again, I think that I give this a 4 instead of a […]

Pure by Julianna Baggott

Pure by Julianna Baggott My rating: 4 of 5 stars I saw this ARC on the table at the Barnes & Noble where I work, and at first didn’t think it could be YA as big of a book as it was. But I picked it up and read about it, and thought it sounded […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. This week I’ve chosen the sequel to the dystopian teen novel Eve by Anna Carey.  I got to read Eve as an egalley from Netgalley, and would love if I get to do […]

Crossed by Ally Condie

Crossed by Ally Condie My rating: 3 of 5 stars First let me say that I need to take a cue from something I saw The Story Siren say, that she doesn’t read other reviews. Because in the case of this book, I wonder how much of my dissatisfaction is because I read other reviews […]

Under the Never Sky by Veronic..

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi My rating: 4 of 5 stars I got Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi from Netgalley. I have to admit when I first started reading it, I had a few thoughts I wasn’t going to really enjoy it. The dystopian future seemed a bit too out there […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming releases we are eagerly awaiting. Last week I veered off the path a bit with all the books I’d been waiting on in the past, but now were released, yet I hadn’t had time to read them yet. […]
