Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff

Wow. This is my first Brenna Yovanoff book. I will definitely be reading the rest of her books based on the strength of Paper Valentine. The writing was excellent and I really loved the story and the main characters. Paper Valentine is a story about loss first and foremost. The main character Hannah has recently lost her best friend Lillian, who essentially starved herself to death. Hannah is not really […]

Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

Bittersweet is the first Sarah Ockler book I have read and I really enjoyed it, though it was to me equal parts sweet and bitter (just like the title suggests!). Bittersweet is the story of a girl called Hudson Avery, dubbed the ‘Cupcake Queen’ of her town Watonka. Hudson had the chance to be a champion ice skater several years ago but she deliberately blew the competition after learning just […]

Flat-Out Matt by Jessica Park

Well if I loved Matt in Flat-Out Love, I loved him even more in this companion novella.

It was great to see Matt hiking with Finn in the first chapter of the novella. It really sold their brotherly bond. I don’t want to give […]

Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz

Well once again I have been absolutely amazed by Hannah Moskowitz. I really loved Teeth, which I read earlier this year, but I think I love Gone, Gone, Gone even more if that is possible. Gone, Gone, Gone is a tender love story between two fifteen year-old boys, Craig and Lio, set during the events of the Beltway sniper shootings. Still recovering from 9/11, Lio and his family move from […]

Bone Deep by Bonnie Dee

Bone Deep was a really sweet little romance story. Romance novels are sometimes difficult for me to get into but I really enjoyed this one and would highly recommend it to anyone who likes the genre. This is the story of Sarah, a young war widow. Her husband was killed in action about a year and a half prior to the beginning of book and Sarah has withdrawn into herself. […]
