Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, #4)Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I think I would honestly give this one 3.5 stars because it didn't have the same feel as the other three. I have come to realize that Lena is my favorite and that I have a love/hate relationship with Kostos. I cannot wait to read the book which takes place 10 years later....I am pretty sure I'm gonna cry.

A Vision of Murder (Psychic Eye Mystery, #3)A Vision of Murder by Victoria Laurie

I wish I could give this one 3.5 stars because I honestly didn't like this book quite as much as the other two. I was tired of the Abby/Dutch bickering throughout the book. I can't wait to read the next one!

Yay! Another series I am hooked into. As I said with the beginning of her other series, Victoria Laurie knows how to draw her audience in and keep them reading. I cannot wait to read more of this series!

The ReplacementThe Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book had potential. It kept me pretty interested and often, I had a difficult time putting the book down. I really liked it at first, but the ending was a little anticlimactic. It also got a bit too gruesome towards the end for my tastes. That being said, I didn't hate the book, but I guess I had higher hopes for a book revolved around the undead.

Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye (A Psychic Eye Mystery, #1)Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye by Victoria Laurie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This seems like it will be a very interesting series. It was thrilling and cute all at the same time. I also enjoyed the bouts of comic relief and cannot wait to read the rest of the series!

The Buddha in the AtticThe Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book is filled with raw, intense accounts on Japanese women and their families, before and during WWII. These women were forced into (mostly) loveless marriages in America. Not only that, but they endured so much during their journeys to various internment camps in the United States.



I found the book to be quite well-written. At first, I will admit that I did not like the ambiguous points of view in which the book was written, but I grew to actually like it because it seemed all the more real. I definitely recommend this book to fans of the WWII time period and anyone who would like to read about the Japanese people in America.

This is a cute beginning to what seems like a great series! I know that it is for a younger audience, but I think that this series is great for any age! It is about the bonds of friendship, even in the most difficult times. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!

Looking for AlaskaLooking for Alaska by John Green

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I wish that I could have given this book 4 stars, but honestly, I can't because this book is utterly and horribly depressing. I don't see how I could ever read it again. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed reading it because John Green is a brilliant author. He doesn't just capture young adults, but all adults. He hooks you in, and makes you want to read more and more of his novels.

An Abundance of KatherinesAn Abundance of Katherines by John Green

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is my very first John Green read, and I can see what the hype is all about! I love his writing style and in this case, I really loved the subject matter. Any books dealing with nerds wins me over pretty easily. I also enjoyed reading the footnotes that Colin leaves for us readers. This book has converted me and I am now an official John Green fan. I cannot wait to read more of his works!

Secret DaughterSecret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is an amazing read! I loved reading about the culture of India. I have always been fascinated with anything to do with that country. Also, the whole adoption aspect of the book touched me, since I too was adopted. I recommend this book to anyone who has a love for India.

Ellen FosterEllen Foster by Kaye Gibbons

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This was a very interesting read. At first, I did not like the writing style and sometimes the changing of tenses got tedious, but it didn't take me long to get used to it. I was a bit curious to what time period this story took place, seeing as she mentioned the sixties like they were the past. Overall, I liked this book, but I am not sure if I will read it again or not.

This was a cute and funny read. I gave it three stars, due to the fact that there was no real substance to the book, but it was still quite the enjoyable read.

The GiverThe Giver by Lois Lowry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is an amazing book that I think every young person should read at least once in their lifetime. I just wish I had read it before now, because it is a life-changing read. I don't want to say much about it because I want people to experience The Giver for themselves. Also, what do you make of the ending? What do you think happened to Jonas and Gabriel?





*For those of you who have read the sequels, are they nearly as good as the first book?

Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and BackHeaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I really thought that this was an AMAZING read about a heroic little boy whose trials and tribulations through his sickness and surgery are nothing short of a miracle. The depictions that Colton gave of Heaven are biblical and I honestly believe him. I cannot wait for my other friends to read this book and tell me what they think of it.
