Why, oh why did I wait so long to read this book?! It is every bit as great as everyone told me it is. I couldn't put it down.

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

This book is SO MUCH FUN. I had a total nerdgasm reading it, and it make me want to play old-school video games for the rest of the week.

Immersing himself in a mid-twenty-first-century technological virtual utopia to escape an ugly real world of famine, poverty, and disease, Wade Watts joins an increasingly violent effort to solve a series of puzzles by the virtual world's creator.

I don't remember the last time I laughed out loud (like, barking laughter) so many times while reading a book. I could feel the awkward so much in this book; I squirmed right along with Bliss so many times. Really well done!

10 New Adult Romance Books You Should Read: Losing It by Cora Carmack

Cricket. Bell. Cricket Bell. CRICKET BELL. I totally would have swooned over Cricket when I was a teenager. I can't even wait for Isla and the Happily Ever After to come out. I need another Stephanie Perkins fix!

Lola and the Boy Next Door, Stephanie Perkins. Sequel/companion to Anna and the French Kiss. Like Anna, it's a cute/fun read, good for de-stressing ^^

I enjoyed this book quite a lot, but certain things about it really irritated me. Little things like: the author references Dawson's Creek, but the references were not accurate. If you're going to make pop culture references, at least make them good ones.

Book: What A Boy Wants Author: Nyrae Dawn Published: April 2012 My Rating: Goodreads

I enjoyed the story and world-building very, very much, and will be reading the sequel, but I had some pretty serious issues with the pacing, character/relationship development, and editing (or lack thereof). It's a good read, but it has way more potential than it uses.

Here Denise Grover Swank Goodreads Sixteen year old Julia Phillips buries herself in guilt after killing her best frien.

When I first started this book I thought it would be my least favorite of Maggie's books (and even as such I would really like it), but I think now that's because I wasn't in the right mood when I first started it. I read the second half all today, and I was loathe to put it down for anything. I felt so strongly what James and Nuala felt, and I want to hug Sullivan so hard. I loved his character!

Books of Faerie Series by Maggie Stiefvater (Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie and Requiem

I'd seen this series on Barnes & Noble a number of times, but didn't pick it up until after I read Easy. I didn't connect with this book as much as with Easy, but I still really enjoyed it.

Between the Lines series (Book Between the Lines) - Tammara Webber

I have mixed feelings about this one. I had heard so many good things about it that I decided I just had to read it, but I'm not sure whether I liked it or not, to be honest.

Read for the month of January Weetzie Bat (Weetzie Bat by Francesca Lia Block. Published April 1989 by Joanna Cotler.

I enjoyed this book immensely. The writing is crisp, and the story is heartfelt. And heartbreaking. It reminds me a lot of Nicholas Sparks.

Don't Wait For Me, started reading this last night and had to force myself to put it down
