Counterfeit Son by Elaine Marie Alphin

Counterfeit Son is a really hard book to rate and review. It is a very dark story and the subject matter is deeply disturbing. I cannot say I enjoyed reading it but I was definitely riveted. It was very short so I ended up reading it in a single sitting but given the topic at hand it worked better as it was direct and to the point with no filler at […]

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

I bough Pushing the Limits awhile ago and have kept meaning to read it but other things just kept getting in the way. I am sorry it took me so long to get to this as I was really quite blown away by the story. This novel is told in dual first-person narrative from the perspectives of two very different teens. Echo Emerson, former popular girl turned social outcast, is a girl […]

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

I found Lola and the Boy Next Door to be every bit as charming as Anna and the French Kiss. Stephanie Perkins really has a knack for creating wonderfully quirky protagonists who steal your heart.

She has an older boyfriend Max (who is a budding rock star) and a best friend who is determined to become […]

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I have had the biggest smile on my face since I finished reading Anna and the French Kiss. It was just what I was in the mood for since I have been going through a spell of heavier, more angst-ridden books lately. I really loved this and now cannot wait to read the follow-up Lola and the Boy Next Door. Anna and the French Kiss revolves around a girl called Anna (funnily enough!) […]

The Zero Knot by K.Z. Snow

The Zero Knot was certainly different from the types of books I normally read but I really enjoyed it. Set in small-town America, it is the story of two friends Jess and Dylan (nicknamed Mig) coming to terms with the fact they are gay and that they also have feelings for each other. There is some angst involved (relating to coming out etc.) but overall the two protagonists are generally […]
