Edge of the Past was the sequel to the young adult, contemporary novel Life on the Edge, by Jennifer Comeaux.

Life on the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux

9 Jan

A forbidden love and the world of ice skating intermingle beautifully in the novel Life on the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux. I really wasn’t sure if  I was going to like this clean, contemporary YA novel because honestly … I like my YA’s with a bit more edge to them. But I stuck through it, and soon realized that I [...]

Bed, Breakfast, and Beyond by Bonnie Gardner

12 Dec

Bed, Breakfast, and Beyond by Bonnie Gardner was a story filled with unexpected love, and some very take charge of the situations, ghosts. With a premise this promising, I was really excited to read this novel. Unfortunately though, Bed, Breakfast, and Beyond kind of fell short to me in the end. When Corrie Wallace turns her family’s old [...]

Three’s a Crowd by Margaret Pearce

15 Oct

Three’s a Crowd was a cute young adult book written by author Margaret Pearce. It’s geared towards a slightly younger crowd, but it was still enjoyable.

Amanda has great plans [...]

Savage Winter by Rachel Van Dyken

24 Jul

Savage Winter, by Rachel Van Dyken, is a beautifully written dystopian tale with an almost regal quality to it. It’s also the first in a new series entitled the Seasons of Paleo.
