Saving Zoë by Alyson Noel

One of my favorite aspects of Book of the Month is that you can add extra books to your monthly box for a very reasonable cost. When I saw Saving Zoë, I knew I needed to add it to my box, and I am so glad I did. Read along at your own risk for spoilers! Overall, I was very happy with this book. While it is mostly superficial, it did delve a little into potential dangerous circumstances that surround teenagers: drugs, alcohol, sex, meeting strangers, and all of the risks that go along with these topics. I would have liked … Continue reading Saving Zoë by Alyson Noel

Mind Games by Shana Silver

This was such an amazing book! Read at your own caution for potential spoilers! Mind Games is a sci-fi book where the main character sells memories. I love the idea that our memories are backed up to a cloud system where we can access them at anytime. Rather than saving photos, you can save full memories instead. To me, this isn’t outside of the realm of possibility, as is the danger that can come with it. If you make the wrong person mad, and they know how to hack, say goodbye to your memories. This creates a huge ethical issue, … Continue reading Mind Games by Shana Silver

Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra

Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra is the first book that I received through Book of the Month’s YA Program. I have very mixed feelings regarding this book honestly but the part that I adore with BOTM, is that it encourages me to read books that I normally would not look at. Which is definitely the case with Symptoms of a Heartbreak. I loved the idea of a 16 year old “girl genius” doctor. However, I didn’t like the way that she was portrayed. I felt that if she is supposed to be a “genius” and a board-certified doctor, … Continue reading Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra

The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen

Is it possible for Sarah Dessen to write anything that isn’t gold? The answer is no….no it is not! Read at your own risk for spoilers. Emma Saylor is a delight to read about. The immediate love that she has for a family long forgotten {not her fault} is wonderful to see. She immediately accepts them and wants to learn as much about her history as possible. Even with the photographic evidence that she sees, she wants to learn more. And that’s also due to the photographs. She’s found a family that has missed her, and by doing that, she … Continue reading The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen

Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta

I hate writing negative reviews, I really do. This was an….interesting…..book. Watch out for spoilers. I honestly struggled through this book. While I enjoy the story of King Arthur, I did not enjoy this adaptation. I think it was so far from the original that it was hard for me to accept. I also wasn’t expecting it to be as dystopian of a book as it was. There were definitely parts that captivated my attention and caused me to not want to put the book down. However, they were few and far between. I found myself checking my phone every … Continue reading Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta
