Feuds was far from what I expected it to be and I mean that in both a good and bad way.  I started the book knowing very little about it and I went into it with an open mind.  To be honest  I only really knew that it was a dystopian and all I hoped […]

The Giver has been on my shelf for years!  I’ve always been interested in it but never enough to actually read it.  As required reading for my YA lit class this semester I was finally forced to give it a try and I can see why everyone raves about it. The Giver is a slower […]

It’s not often that I read a sequel that not only measures up to the first book but surpasses it but Idols definitely does that. Icons grabbed my attention and intrigued me but Idols had me hooked and dying for more. Idols picks up right where Icons left off and it’s pulse pounding start. The […]

Icons, Margaret Stohl’s first solo venture, let me down in a lot of ways.  I was expecting a fast-paced book full of pulse-pounding action and suspense and that is definitely not what I got.  Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but it could have been great. The biggest issue I had with Icons was […]

The Murder Complex is Lindsay Cummings’ debut novel and the start of what promises to be an awesome new dystopian series.  The characters, the story, and the pulse pounding action make for a thrilling read.

Leaving is one of those stories that could be good but wasn’t really.  Ally Condie started off strong but there was just too much information missing from the story for to truly love it.  It was almost like it was the beginning of a story and she just decided not to bother writing the ending. […]

The Treatment, the second and final book in The Program duology, ties things up nicely and left me feeling satisfied, if not exactly happy.  I mean that in the best possible way though.  The Treatment is a book that will leave you thinking about life, love, and how to live in the moment.  It’s pretty […]

Into The Still Blue, the conclusion to the Under the Never Sky trilogy, brings everything to a head and ends the series with a bang.  Veronica Rossi managed to write a perfect ending to the trilogy that will leaver fans eager for more from her.

Not a Drop to Drink, Mindy McGinnis’ debut novel, is a unique dystopian story that kept me hooked from beginning to end.  It’s a story that hasn’t been overdone in YA and readers should really enjoy that about it. Not A Drop to Drink is not your typical action packed, evil government overlord dystopian.  It’s […]

I’m not sure how she does it but Julie Kagawa continues to write books that completely blow my expectations out of the water.  The Forever Song was no exception.  This final installment in the Blood of Eden series left me both sad to see my favorite characters go but it definitely answered all my questions […]
