Recommend A…Book You Thought Was Funny!!
My choice for this week is A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz
I was going to go with Chelsea Handler’s My Horizontal Life, but that is not really appropriate for a blog that focuses mainly on young adult literature (adult readers: go read this, its HILARIOUS) so instead I went with one of my favorites. I loved this book. The narration style was hilarious with some aside statements made to both parents and children as well as to the characters in the story. Gidwitz is writing a companion novel, set to debut this fall and I am so excited!!

Recommend A…Book That Made You Emotional!!

My choice for this week is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness


This book made me feel feelings. I had a few moments of ugly crying but it was also so refreshing that I was left feeling both empty and so filled with emotions that it’s hard to even describe. I reviewed it on the blog a few months back and it comes highly recommended!

Recommend A…Trilogy!

I won’t lie, I almost went with The Sevenwaters trilogy by Juliet Marillier but technically she continued the series with another trilogy so then it got a little confusing. Instead, I am going to go with…



I picked up book one, Wintercraft: Shadowcry on a whim about a month ago and I absolutely adored it. I quickly devoured both Wintercraft: Blackwatch and Wintercraft: Legacy immediately after and although this particular series has ended, Jenna Burtenshaw completed the last book in a way that alludes that there may be more stories involving Kate, Silas and Edgar and let me tell you, I will be at the front of the line if that is the case! If you enjoy fantasy, I suggest you give these books a chance!

Recommend A…Book With a Bad Boy!!



Ooohh boy was I so excited for this one!!! Here’s a secret, bad boys are only my most FAVORITE male lead! Especially the brooding, “I’m no good for you” kind! Oh yes! I could really go on and on with this list* but I am going to stick to just one and I really can’t wait to read about the bad boys everyone else is choosing!


My choice is…Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and more specifically, Mr. Darcy from P&P. Classic, I KNOW.


Now, some of you may be wondering why I chose Mr. Darcy when the world has been introduced to Akiva, Silas Dane and a revamped Romeo Montague recently. It’s simple, really. He’s classy and he won my heart from a brooding Mr. Heathcliff back in sophomore year of high school. Sorry, Heath, it’s the moors, I am far to sickly to be chasing you around those. ANYwho, what’s not to love? He’s brooding, arrogant and kinda cocky for a gentleman. Yet he is also smart, and so emotionally detached that it just makes me want to laugh and then kiss his face to make him finally relax a little! Overall, totes swoonworthy and he doesn’t even have to drag me to Hell or turn me into a victim of stockholm syndrome.


Now, dear readers, I leave you with this:





*No seriously I sat here for a ridiculous amount of time trying to decide on just one and I changed my mind probably four times before finally posting.

Recommend A..book with a green cover!


By Juliet Marillier

Whistling Tor is a place of secrets, a mysterious, wooded hill housing the crumbling fortress of a chieftain whose name is spoken throughout the district in tones of revulsion and bitterness. A curse lies over Anluan’s family and his people; those woods hold a perilous force whose every whisper threatens doom.

For young scribe Caitrin it is a safe haven. This place where nobody else is prepared to go seems exactly what she needs, for Caitrin is fleeing her own demons. As Caitlin comes to know Anluan and his home in more depth she realizes that it is only through her love and determination that the curse can be broken and Anluan and his people set free.

Love, love LOVE Juliet Marillier and as I was perusing through Goodreads I realized that I really haven’t read that many books with a green cover and this was one of the few so obviously I jumped right on it! If you haven’t read Marillier, go read something by her now. You’re welcome.
