Edge of the Past by Jennifer Comeaux

16 Feb

Edge of the Past was the sequel to the young adult, contemporary novel Life on the Edge, by Jennifer Comeaux. It took me a while to get around to reading it due to a full  review schedule, but when I did, I found it to be almost impossible to put down! I was so much more engrossed in this book [...]

The Devil’s Triangle by Toni De Palma

15 Feb

A well-written male point of view always seems to be a difficult thing to accomplish in novels, especially in the young adult genre. So when I picked up The Devils Triangle for review, I was really eager to see whether or not this author could pull it off. Luckily for me, it only took less than one chapter to realize that Toni De [...]

The Stone Guardian by Theresa McClinton

19 Jan

The Stone Guardian is the first YA Paranormal Romance I have read in a while. I was very unsure with the first few chapters. There is a ton of information that you have to keep straight and the romance is the secondary part of the story. However, I stuck with it and once the story [...]

Shifting Pride by Laura Diamond

Life on the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux

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 [...]

New Pride by Laura Diamond

12 Dec

I am a huge fan of shape shifter/paranormal novels. But then when you add in the young adult concept to the storyline, I’m most definitely sold. So when I picked up New Pride by Laura Diamond, I was ecstatic to dive into the pages due the fact that this short novella had both of those concepts. And although [...]

Phantom by Laura DeLuca

19 Nov

I do believe that I experienced almost every single emotion known to man while reading the young adult novel Phantom by Laura DeLuca. And I honestly picked this book up thinking that it was going to be nothing more than a lighthearted, teenage romance. But holy moly … and wow … and oh my gosh … I was so, so wrong! And I’ll [...]
