Why I Love YA

Why I Love YA

While it’s not really so strange these days for a woman of my age to be a fan of YA books, I do still sometimes have to explain it to people when they ask what I’ve read that is good lately, and I really can only tell them about YA books.  As a middle school… Read more »

The Hazards of Working at a Bookstore Vol. 4.1

Wow, I can’t believe how long it has been since I blogged! School is so busy, 3 jobs are crazy! I also am thinking I may not be able to read the nominees for next year’s Gateway. I am going to get a friend, and maybe some students to help me. But I’m getting an… Read more »

The Cellar by A.J. Whitten

This was another egalley from Netgalley. This book is actually already published, but I still was interested in reading it. First off, let me say this story was pretty scary! We have two, kind of three, main characters. First are the two sisters Meredith and Heather. They recently lost their father in a car crash,… Read more »

Falling in Love With English Boys by Melissa Jensen

Falling in Love With English Boys by Melissa Jensen

Believe it or not, as much as I enjoy chick lit, I normally don’t get into teen “romance” novels anymore. What I prefer in chick lit is that I feel a connection or similarity to the main character, in other words, she can’t be married or divorced or have children, as I have or am… Read more »
