Here are teen reviews from Tuesday 7/2/13 and Thrusday 8/1/13 :


The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross ****

The Girl With The Iron Touch- Did not dissapoint. Finally, a happily ever after moment for two characters who deserved the chance to say I love you. if youve read the ARC version, there is  mistake on the summarization of the plot on the back. An intriging new character that I cant wait to read more of. A must read if youre in love with this series

Notes From Ghost Town by Kate Ellison ****

Notes From Ghost Town- A good murder mystery. I like how the romance aspect didnt have a happily ever after, but touched down on real aspects of life. I did not like how a second possible romance began in a sterotypical movie fashion, someone gets paid or daredd to go out with the other. I'd read it if it catches your eye and if it's your type of book

Dare You To ****

Dare You To by Katie McGarry is more than a typical teenage romance novel- it is filled with adventure, suspense, and intense secrets! The main character is Beth Risk, who takes on too many responsibilities for a seventeen year old girl. When she is forced to attend a new school, she tries to stay hidden from friendship and love, but finds herself falling for the town's golden boy. This novel is definitely a book full of twists and turns that you won't want to put down!

Loki's Wolves by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr

Loki’s Wolves by K.L.Armstrong and M.A.Marr was an extremely good book.  It included a lot of characters and required the reader to pay rapt attention so that they didn’t miss something interesting and important.  There was a constant twist at every turn and you never want to put the book down.  The author gave you a strong sense of each of the characters by having their point of view depicted in different chapters.  You get strongly attached to one character and begin to strongly dislike another when suddenly you learn a bit more about the one you dislike, causing your opinion to change drastically.   Loki’s Wolves was an exciting book leaving you waiting for the next book in the series to come along.

Wild Boy by Lloyd Jones

Wild Boy by Lloyd Jones is a great book.  It has unique ideas and many twists and turns.  You think you are certain of something and then the Wild Boy shows you a completely new outlook on it.  Wild Boy is a fascinating book that tells of the circuses dirty little secrets. To be released September 2013
