Holy cow, I’m so far behind in my reviews. But, you know what? It’s all good. We’re gonna do a bit of catch-up with a week of Tweet-Short Reviews! Aren’t you excited? I know I am. I’m also tweaking my blog design a bit more, as it’s not *quite* where I want it to be. Y’all have any input? Is the main text font size too small (I’m thinking that it is but it seems to keep resetting every time I bump up the size. Grr.)? Even though it’s a clean font, I’m not the biggest fan of the headline font. Hum. I’m missing social media buttons…*writes it on the list*
City Love by Susane Colasanti (NA contemporary, hardcover, 336 pages; published April 21, 2015 by Katherine Tegen Books; source: publisher)
Fun NA story of three girls finding their way, love in NYC. Little disappointed at end…but it also means there’s more to the story! (A trilogy, I guess? To finish all three girls’ stories.)
Encore to an Empty Room (Exile #2) by Kevin Emerson (YA contemporary, hardcover, 320 pages; published April 28, 2015 by Katherine Tegen Books; source: publisher)
Middle book of trilogy. Love the musical aspect to this story and the hunt for dad’s lost recordings. MC Summer got tiresome–not a fan.
Unleashed (Uninvited #2) by Sophie Jordan (YA dystopia, hardcover, 368 pages; published February 24, 2015 by HarperTeen; source: publisher)
Kind of wish this duology was a standalone, esp. with the addition of a Triangle of Doom. Oh, angst! *sigh* Really liked the first story, disappointed w/ this one.
Drive Me Crazy by Terra Elan McVoy (MG contemporary, hardcover, 288 pages; published April 28, 2015 by Katherine Tegen Books; source: publisher)
Sweet road trip story. Would make a great summer read. Liked watching the friendship btw the two girls evolve as they played tourist w/ their grandparents.
Sorceress (Spellcaster #3) by Claudia Gray (Hardcover, 352 pages; published March 3, 2015 by HarperTeen; source: publisher)
Strong ending to a very readable series. Liked how everything was tied up at the end (I do like a solid ending) but not treacle-y sweet.
The Leveller (The Leveller #1) by Julia Durango (Hardcover, 256 pages; published June 23, 2015 by HarperCollins; source: publisher)
I’m a gamer so was excited to get into this one. Liked how MC Nixy used her gamer skills to rescue cutie pie Wyn. Plenty of traps and action.
