Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

I’ve been trying real hard to branch out a bit from my reading comfort zone. I tend to read a lot of contemporary YA on a consistent basis.

And believe me, after see those pecs on this cover… I REALLY wanted to connect Wrecked is about Lorrie a girl who has lost both of her parents… Read more »

Review: The Chapel Wars by Lindsey Leavitt

Review: The Chapel Wars by Lindsey Leavitt

My first introduction to Lindsey Leavitt was Going Vintage, which I read a year ago. It was cover love at first sight. I loved the concept of that story as well, so I eagerly jumped right in.

For the record, I am still undecided. This story is about a group of high school students who go to get their flu vaccine and have some adverse side effects afterward… namely becoming telepathic… in high school! GASP! For some… Read more »
