The Edge of the Word by Drew Callander and Alana Harrison: Review, Giveaway & the Authors’ Top Ten Addictions

I dare say that this second book in the series is even more interactive than the first! The book puts you right in the action, since you’re the main character (much like a Choose Your Own Adventure book) as you go on a quest to save Astorya by hiding the Original original in a place no one will ever look for it—on the Other Side (basically the underneath side of the world). This book includes even […]

Before I Disappear by Danielle Stinson: Review, Giveaway, & Stinson’s Top Ten Addictions

Before I Disappear by Danielle Stinson: Review, Giveaway, & Stinson’s Top Ten Addictions

You know how sometimes you start reading a book, and within just a few pages, you’re already saying, “I LOVE this!”? That was Before I Disappear for me. Right away, I could tell there was going to be something special in these pages—I was immediately wrapped up in the intrigue: What’s so odd about Charlie? What’s this music he’s hearing? Why have they had to move so much? What are they running from? What dangers […]

Smoke and Key by Kelsey Sutton: Sutton’s Top Ten Addictions

Awhile back, I read my first Kelsey Sutton book (The Lonely Ones), and I fell in LOVE.

I signed up for the blog tour, so my review is coming next week (along with a giveaway!), but for now I thought I’d share a little peek […]

Operation Frog Effect by Sarah Scheerger: Review & Scheerger’s Top Ten Addictions

Operation Frog Effect is a story told in journal form–with eight (diverse) kids who are writing their experiences as the school year progresses. The kids use multiple formats. For instance, one writes mostly in verse while another does his journaling in graphic novel format. These different formats are sure to appeal to a wide variety of readers. Right from the start, I could tell that the characters were going to be incredibly relatable: the story starts […]
