    Do I need to even explain myself? No? Well, I will anyway. This book has it all: The best characters. Maggie (I feel like we're on a first name basis) doesn't neglect developing any of the characters. Whether they show up for one scene or are a main character, they are real, fle...

    Yesterday I walked into my library's Young Adult section which is inside its own special Young Adult room. There were all these kids hanging out playing video games when this bearded 31 year old man walked into the room. He was a man on a mission, a mission to quickly identify the YA S...

    OK. SO THIS BOOK WAS PRETTY GREAT. The book was very slow-moving for the first half or so, but I always found myself drawn in by the beautiful writing and the fabulous characters. This story is first and foremost about the characters, and I completely adored the friendship between t...

    Quirky loner girl meets privileged rich boy(s). Forbidden love and angst ensue. I seem to have this habit. For the past couple of years, I've mostly been deliberately avoiding paranormal YA from authors I don't already love. The genre is a hard sell for me, filled with tropes th...

    Up until the very end, I was so sure The Raven Boys would be making an appearance on my top favorites list. Maggie Stiefvater?s latest book has everything I want from a great reading experience, a complex narrative, an intriguing and highly developed cast of characters, an utterly ha...

    The only character I like is Ronan. Which is... very ironic. It might be time for Maggie Stiefvater and I to part ways. Truly, there's nothing actually ''wrong'' with her style; it simply does not appeal to me. But this is the kind of story that I feel would be read in a better w...

    This book is why I give authors second, third, and sometimes even fourth chances (*cough* Colleen Hoover *cough*). Because while I might not enjoy one book they wrote, I like to think that doesn't mean I'll hate everything they publish. Take Stiefvater. I tried to read Shiver a whi...

    4 Stars! What an enjoyable read this was. Blue, a teenage girl lives in a house full of psychic aunts and her mother. Ever since Blue was little, she was told that her true love will die if she kisses him. (That's one way to scare a little child...shit) Blue goes to church with he...

    A TV SHOW! A TV SHOW! - It's going to be directed by Catherine Hardwick, the woman who directed Twilight and Red Riding Hood. I know some of you think she may not be the best choice but I think she's perfect. She has a talent for mystery and magic, and if you aren't convinced you shoul...

    Raven Boys turns out to be more interesting that I thought it would be. I was reluctant to start this series, not only that most of the hyped YA series always disappointed me, this one also seems like a book written specifically for girls. Don?t kill me SJW, here?s the fact and ...
