Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! by Bob Spitz
Rate this book
Clear rating
As a huge music fan, I knew that Yeah Yeah Yeah had the potential to pull me in as soon as I began reading. Focused on The Beatles, this is written into the text from the start. This biographical novel covers so many different aspects of the lives of ...more

Night by Elie Wiesel

Clear rating
Night is a novel that has achieved great acclaim from many different sources. Elie Wiesel actually came to Florida State this past fall to give a talk, and his presence on campus was widely acknowledged as being a “big deal.” I knew when I sat down t ...more

Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine
Rate this book
Clear rating
Mockingbird is a perfect example of a young adult novel that grows on you as you read it. When I first opened the book, I found the style of narration (from the point of view of a fifth grader with Asperger’s Syndrome) a little jarring. I was sure I ...more

Deadline by Chris Crutcher
Rate this book
Clear rating
My brother saw me picking up Deadline to start reading and immediately debriefed me on how “awesome” a book it was, and how much I was going to love it. Coming from a kid who is decidedly not the avid reader I am, it seemed like a pretty good recomme ...more

I settled in to read Unwind on a four hour car trip from Tallahassee to Tampa, and finished it in exactly that amount of time. This book was certainly an interesting one and, though I had some mixed feelings while reading it, I was hooked from the st ...more

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Thirteen Reasons Why
by Jay Asher (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
I’d heard many positive things about Thirteen Reasons Why before I picked up the novel, and maybe that’s why I was expecting a little more than I feel like I took from the text. That’s not to say that I don’t think it could be a powerful book in the ...more

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is, without a doubt, one of the best young adult novels I’ve ever read. I actually hold it on a level with the Harry Potter series, and I consider myself one of the biggest HP geeks. The story of Katniss and her struggle to provide for her ...more

Paper Towns by John Green
Paper Towns
by John Green (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Paper Towns was an interesting read, but I came away from it with mixed emotions. I’m used to reading books that start off a little slow and then pull me in as they progress, but I’m not used to the phenomenon happening in reverse. This novel started ...more

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Rate this book
Clear rating
I judged a book by its cover when I picked up Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and for once my assumptions actually turned out to be quite accurate. I expected a tale about a dark, mythical world and an unsuspecting adolescent who stumble ...more
