Book Review – Divergent

Standard

I just finished reading Divergent by Veronica Roth.

What a fantastic book!! It’s similar to the Hunger Games in that it’s a Dystopian Young Adult book with a butt-kicking teen girl lead, but the actual story is very different. I loved the tension between the main character, Tris, and her instructor, Four. I was chanting in my head “kiss, kiss, kiss!” every time they were in a scene together! 🙂 I would definitely recommend reading it!

Book Review – Flat Out Love

Standard

I just finished reading Flat Out Love by Jessica Park.

I related to the main character, Julie, in so many ways. We both went to college in Boston, have a fear of elevators, and found love on Myspace. I loved how she wanted to help out the family that took her in when her college housing fell through, and her guidance for the little sister was very sweet. For some reason, the person I pictured in my head for Matt, the friend/brother of the house, is the kid who plays Robby on Victorious….I guess because they’re both geeky cute. Anyway, I would definitely recommend reading this book! I got it for free through the Kindle Lending Library, but it’s worth purchasing it if you don’t have Amazon Prime because it’s a funny, heartwarming story that anyone could enjoy.

YA Book Review – If I Stay

Standard

I just finished reading the book If I Stay by Gayle Forman.

It was an extremely unique concept in that it’s told from the point of view of someone in a coma who can see and hear everything that’s happening around her. I enjoyed the flashbacks of her relationships with her family, best friend and boyfriend, and the struggle she faced. I thought it was a great book, not the best book I’ve ever read, but something different and I breezed through it in about 2 days. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys contemporary young adult fiction. 

I did see that there is a sequel so I will definitely be reading that one next!

YA Book Review – Angelfall

Standard

I recently bought a Kindle Fire and got a month free of Amazon Prime. The selection in the Kindle Lending Library isn’t that massive, however, one book caught my eye – Angelfall,(Penryn & the End of Days, Book 1) by Susan Ee.

From the very first sentence, I was pulled into the world of post-apocalyptic angel warriors and the girl who tries to fight back. I couldn’t put this book down and finished it in one weekend!

The ending was a little creepy for my taste, but I did enjoy the dynamic between Penryn and the main angel. I would suggest this book to anyone who enjoys YA adventure/paranormal.
