YABC.

I enjoyed the previous book, Dorothy Must Die, very much. As soon as I had the chance to read the next book, I snapped it up. I freely acknowledge that time and circumstances didn't allow me to read it as soon as I wanted to, but I was totally h

Light Runner surprises me. The story is told in an unexpected way, and it doesn't follow what I thought it would turn out. (My prediction was based on the synopsis, and I admit that I welcome that surprise.) Let's dig in.

I can't exactly describe

I really enjoyed reading Between Us and the Moon (written by the same author), which I thought was a really realistic and heartbreaking book. Here's what I thought of her next book, A Season For Fireflies. YA Contemporary (with romance), A Seaso

I may or may not mention how much I love Dan Wells' stories (but now you know that I do love his stories and novels). Partials is one of my favorite Science Fiction novels, and I think I can easily add Bluescreen to the list. YA Sci-Fi with a tiny hi ...more

"Two households, both alike in dignity, in Fair..."

Oh. Whoops. Never mind. Wrong story, wrong work of literature. But let's admit it. The Weight of Feathers and Romeo and Juliet share quite a lot of similarities. Two rivaling families who hate each o

NetGalley. Thanks for a copy.

This will be a short review.

Defender is a decent mystery book. It is one that will keep you interested, but it's not particularly memorable in any way. The mystery is of a dead girl in a wall, whose body disappears when T

YABC.

On summer break and stuck at home?

Well, books clearly are your answer. And traveling across Europe (though in a book) is a great idea of a vacation. And Wanderlost contains a group of senior citizens, a case of impersonating another person (who

YABC.

I always love a good supernatural story about the apocalypse. And from Veronica Rossi? Now that must be a lovely gift from Santa, who is very early in the year. (Or late??? It depends on the way you see it. It could go both ways.)

Veronica Roth
“I have something I need to tell you," he says. I run my fingers along the tendons in his hands and look back at him. "I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though."
"That's sensible of you," I say, smiling too. "We should find some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something."
I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing my ear.
"Maybe I'm already sure," he says, "and I just don't want to frighten you."
I laugh a little. "Then you should know better."
"Fine," he says. "Then I love you.”
Veronica Roth, Divergent

Susan Ee
“How long did you resist?” asks Uriel. “Did you push her away? Did you tell her she meant no more to you than any other animal? Oh, Raffe, did she die thinking you didn't care about her? How tragic. That must just tear you to pieces.”
Raffe looks up with murder in his eyes. “Don't. Talk. About. Her.”
Susan Ee, Angelfall

Rosamund Hodge
“They said that love was terrifying and tender, wild and sweet, and none of it made any sense.
But now I knew that every mad word was true.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

Gertrude Stein
“We are always the same age inside. ”
Gertrude Stein

“Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.”
