Hearts at Stake written by Alyxandra Harvey

Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey Publisher: Walker Books Released: December 2009 Pages: 256 Let me start with this: Hearts at Stake was just TOO DARN CUTE! I kept turning the pages mostly because I wanted to see more Lucy-Nicholas action. Let me tell you, this couple sizzles! Alyxandra Harvey did a FABULOUS job of writing in the perfect amount of sexual tension between the two. Swoon! Although Hearts at Stake is supposed to be about Solange, the only born…

Upon a Bookcase: Fallen by Lauren Kate

Upon a Bookcase: Fallen by Lauren Kate

Fallen by Lauren Kate Publisher: Delacorte Press Released: December 2009 Pages: 452 Fallen is a positively gorgeous read that blends boarding school with dark elements. I’d heard great things about Fallen, so when my library FINALLY got a copy, I leapt at the chance to read it. I’m glad I did, because Fallen was thoroughly enjoyable! Fallen is written in the third person, which is a nice change of pace for a paranormal YA. This allowed for very descriptive writing…

What Do You Think About The Book: Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White

What Do You Think About The Book: Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White

Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White Publisher: Harper Teen Released: March 2010 Pages: 384 Thoughts: Forget-Her-Nots is a super-sweet book. It just melts your heart a bit.

I felt as if Laurel’s voice and her decisions were a bit young, even for a 14-year-old. She’s supposed…
