" such a unique story, this was def. a page-turner, can't put it down kinda of book and read it in less then a day. It left you on the edge of your seat, and you really felt for cheyenne the main character and left you putting youself in her shoes, and i think that made it even more intense of a story... def. pick this book up!!"

Along for the Ride By: Sarah Dessen

This is the first Sarah Dessen book that I have read and while i did enjoy it, it didn't blow me out of the water, and i've heard a few titles that are supposed to be outstanding by her. I did just pick up "just listen" so we'll see how that one compares to this one. It was a quick, light read and it was cute, just predictable.

Wintergirls By: Laurie Halse Anderson

This book was raw, emotional, and a strickingly powerful look into the head of a girl with an eating disorder. I could understand her thoughts and struggles and it was a really good read, i couldn't put it down and read it in less then a day. Laurie Halse Anderson never lets me down!!

The Forest of Hands and Teeth By: Carrie Ryan

After reading the so called "hit series" and I use that term lightly of the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer, it kinda left a bad taste in my mouth regarding fantasy type novels, but I heard many good things about this book and finally decided to give fantasy another try and boy am I happy that I did. This book was outstanding, not only did it have a really strong plot but the story was intense and the characters relatable. I felt like I was right there with them, due to the strong and powerful writing, and it left me not wanting to put the book down. I can't wait to get my hands on the companion novel for this which is "The Dead Tossed Waves"
