Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Ask the Passengers is funny and honest, and it is an experience I will never forget. While it doesn’t exactly tackle anything new, the style and voice of A.S. King is unique and perfect. Add that to her ability to weave in a bit of magic and it’s hard to doubt that Ask the Passengers is anything but original. Astrid Jones is struggling. Her family… … Continue reading Review: Ask the Passengers by A.S. King

Review: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Please Ignore Vera Dietz was a book that really hit home. Alcoholism, drugs, abuse, absentee parents… I could go on. If I wasn’t crying for the characters, I was relating to them, and with this book, and A.S. King’s writing, it was like I was apart of the book. Like I was living in Vera’s world instead of my own, but I wasn’t, because our world’s are the same. “Is … Continue reading Review: Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

Review: The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

Oh gosh. This book was NOT what I was expecting. At times, I felt like I couldn’t relate AT ALL to any of the characters, like they were unrealistic or too cliché, I don’t know… but then there were parts where my heart ached for the characters- even the ones I so desperately wanted to hate. Elaine is the popular girl, the one you want … Continue reading Review: The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

Review: Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens

I was expecting something a little darker, maybe even moodier, when I picked up this book, and even though it was lighter than I expected, I still fell in love with Faking Normal. Alexi seems like a normal, functioning teenage girl, except she’s not. She’s hiding something, something that brings her to her closet nearly every night to scratch the back of her neck or … Continue reading Review: Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens

Review: Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

I went through a phase a few years ago where all I read was Sarah Dessen. I’ve read every single one of her books, except This Lullaby which I purchased the audio book of, but somehow lost it… but that’s another story. Point is, I was addicted to reading all things by Dessen, so of course, I read Lock and Key with huge expectations. I … Continue reading Review: Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins

My Review This book is dark, scary, and very, very disturbing, but all that is hidden in beautiful words and a story that is so gripping that it makes it worth reading. If you prefer happy books with cute characters that have bubbly personalities and their biggest problem in life is who they’re going to date, then this book probably isn’t for you. However, if … Continue reading Review: Impulse by Ellen Hopkins
