The 100 Kass Morgan 5 Paws   How dare you Kass Morgan? How DARE you? I always seemed to have some issues getting into sci-fi books. If I found a certain book too technical or found the plot too time consuming I lost interest, but if I had too many unanswered questions by the end o...

"Their Eyes Were Watching God" Zora Neale Hurston This book definitely turned into a struggle for me to rate. Some parts of the novel sucked me in and held on to me until I finished the chapter, but other times I did not even want to open the book because nothing the narrator said lured me in....

"A Wolf Called Romeo" by Nick Jans Before I began reading this novel my expectations started off extremely low.

"Einstein’s Beach House" by Jacob M. Appel I hesitated before I began reading this book since it was a short story. Short stories and I never got along; their lack of depth and unsatisfying endings seemed to push me away. Still, I felt Jacob M. Appel’s book deserved a chance, and I was amazed ...

"She’s Come Undone" by Wally Lamb This story captivated me. It was sad, funny, and made me question my life choices all at the same time. Wally Lamb has the ability to really suck the reader into a story and make them feel like they belonged as part of the book, while also keeping true to the charac...

"The Program" by Suzanne Young This book was a roller coaster. It kept me on edge, and I was unprepared for most of the things Suzanne Young decided to throw at me throughout the novel. In this novel, suicide becomes a national epidemic. If any form of sadness appears in children and young adults, the govern...
