The Romeo Catchers - The Casquette Girls Series Book 2

“The Romeo Catchers” is a great conclusion to the The Casquette Girls series. It’s been a while since I read book one so I had to look up what it was about as I didn't remember. And I just didn't have the time to reread book one. This secon...

You're Welcome, Universe

Becoming a Legend - The Blue Eyes Trilogy, #2

Letters to the Lost

This book, OMG!! I didn't know if this was going to be a win for me. The contemporary YA genre is so hit and miss for me that I usually go into them with the thought that I won't be finishing the book. So when I find something like this tha...

Recruits - Recruits, #1

I really wanted to like “Recruits”. The premise was very interesting but the writing just didn't work for me. The teens are eighteen years old. So for me, I think this should have been written as a high young adult to even new adult, but th...
