I’ll Give You The Sun is Jandy Nelson’s highly anticipated sophomore novel.  With my love of her debut novel, The Sky Is Everywhere, I had supremely high expectations for I’ll Give You The Sun.  To be completely honest, my expectations were probably even a little unrealistic.  However, Jandy Nelson definitely delivered and you completely met […]

Posted September 18, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, interview, review / 4 Comments

Evidence of Things Not Seen might be one of the most bizarre books I’ve ever read.  It’s unlike anything else in the YA market and while it wasn’t my favorite, I truly enjoyed reading it. The story focuses on the disappearance of Tommy Smythe.  Tommy is a strange boy with a fascination for particle physics […]

Straight contemporary romances haven’t really been wowing me lately and I was hoping Louder Than Words would change that.  While I enjoyed the book and I devoured the story, it just didn’t stand out to me as anything all that special.  It’s a fun read but there could have been a lot more to it. […]

Posted September 10, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 10 Comments

Rites of Passage is a strong debut novel from Joy Hensley.  I was seriously impressed by this contemporary novel and I’m already looking forward to whatever she writes next. Rites of Passage combines a few of my favorite things: strong females, forbidden romance, and a school setting.  And it just so happens that all three […]

Posted September 9, 2014 by Kaitlynn in blog tour, giveaway, review / 13 Comments

Right Kind of Wrong, the third and final book in the Finding Fate trilogy, lived up to my expectations.  After reading two of Chelsea Fine’s previous novels, I’ve come to expect steamy romance, well-developed characters, and fun, fast-paced stories.  Right Kind of Wrong is not lacking in any of these. Jenna and Jack take center […]

Shatter, the final book in the True Believers series, was a wonderful conclusion to the series.  Erin McCarthy’s new adult series is full of romance, heartbreak, and tons of laughs. Kylie wasn’t the best at first but she quickly grew on me.  She definitely put a lot of emphasis on what happened with Robin and […]

I Want It That Way is Ann Aguirre’s first foray into the young adult genre and she definitely did it right!  Nadia and Ty’s story captured my heart and this series has some serious potential. Nadia reminded me a lot of myself.  She’s hardworking, driven, and pretty hard on herself.  She is a full time […]

Can’t Look Away, Donna Cooner’s sophomore novel, shows promise for her as a writer.  I found it to be an extremely quick read that captivated me from start to finish. Torrey’s story was one that is very relevant to todays teens.  Torry has a great online presence through her Youtube beauty channel as well as […]

Posted August 7, 2014 by Kaitlynn in review / 3 Comments

Blind is an interesting take on how your life can change in an instant.  Rachel DeWoskin’s young adult debut is a wonderful story about a girl learning to go through life blind. I think the hardest thing for readers to enjoy about Blind is the style of writing.  The writing is not bad at all […]

When I saw Dearest Clementine on sale on Amazon, I decided to give it a shot.  It was free, what could it hurt?  Well, I realized there was a good reason it was free: it’d be a complete waste of money to actually pay for it. Clementine was a grade A bitch.  She was only […]
