{Review+Giveaway} The Society by Jodie Andrefski @2000_words @EntangledTeen

{Review+Giveaway} The Society by Jodie Andrefski @2000_words @EntangledTeen

The Society is a young adult standalone suspense by Jodie Andrefski. It deals with one of my favorite young adult subjects- a secret society in a boarding school setting. The Society took a bit of a different twist on the secret society thing. Instead of secrets to uncover from the school, this was a revenge plot. Secrets of a different kind. It was an interesting take on a secret society and it certainly was new and different. The whole thing felt very Scream Queens to me…minus the guy in the mask. Sam and Jessica are the two main characters of The Society and their relationship and dynamic was actually the most interesting aspect of the entire novel to me. Jessica is the quintessential mean girl to Sam. They used to be best friends but because of some legal issues involving their dads, they had a major falling out. Sam’s dad landed in jail, but Jessica’s family certainly did not come out of the situation unscathed. What I found to be… Read more »

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

{Review} Romancing the Nerd by @LeahR_Miller @EntangledTeen

Romancing the Nerd is the second book in the Nerd series by Leah Rae Miller. Each of the books can be read as a standalone, and while the first book looks really cute and has been on my TBR pile since its’ release, I have yet to read it. However, I had no problem jumping right in with this book. I think the connection with the two is Dan. He was a minor secondary character in The Summer I became a Nerd. I loved Dan. I really liked Zelda too, but Dan held a special place in my heart. As is my preference with contemporary romances, Romancing the Nerd is told in dual narrative between Zelda and Dan. This book is cute and really funny read. Zelda and Dan are both nerds at heart, and while Zelda is also a what she would consider a nerd on the outside, Dan is a nerd turned popular jock. They each have had a crush on the other for years, which is adorable…. Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} #LoveMeNever by @Sara_Wolf1 @EntangledTeen #LovelyVicious

{Review+Giveaway} #LoveMeNever by @Sara_Wolf1 @EntangledTeen #LovelyVicious

Love Me Never was previously published as Lovely Vicious. Love Me Never is fully revised and updated edition of the previous book. It got a new cover, and because I loved books 1 and 2 of the Lovely Vicious Series so much, I decided to re-read Love Me Never. I am still thinking about Love Me Never days after I read it the first time. And I loved it just as much my second time reading it, as Love Me Never. This book really affected me and left a mark on me. I ended up absolutely loving it. Sara Wolf did an amazing job creating a book that was beautiful in it’s sadness. But that isn’t the thing that most got to me. I have loved books before and books have made me think about them long after I read them before, but not quite like this. You see, in the first part of the book, I didn’t think I was going to like it nearly as much as I… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Holding Court by @KCHeld @EntangledTeen

{Review+Giveaway} Holding Court by @KCHeld @EntangledTeen

Holding Court is a young adult mystery romance by K.C. Held. How could I not read Holding Court? I mean, come on, there are castles, history, oh and “Psychic Tourette’s Syndrome”. Described as “spontaneous and uncontrollable outbursts of seemingly absurd prophecies.” That just screams good time to me. And I was so right. Holding Court was such a fun read. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. In fact, it is one of the best books I have read in the past few months. I believe that Holding Court is a standalone, but I am really hoping. No scratch that, I am begging K.C. Held to write another book with Jules and Grayson. Jules and her “Psychic Tourette’s Syndrome” are my favorite. I just loved her. I want to be best friends with this girl. Plus, her and Grayson had full conversations quoting The Princess Bride. How can you not love them?? Holding Court is unlike anything I have read in a while. Jules takes a summer job at a… Read more »

{ARC Review} The Summer Marked by @RebekahLPurdy @EntangledTeen

{ARC Review} The Summer Marked by @RebekahLPurdy @EntangledTeen

The Summer Marked is the second book in the Winter People series. I really enjoyed the Winter People last year and I was really interested in seeing what was going to happen next. If I recall correctly, The Winter people ended in kind of a nicely wrapped up place. Salome was living happily ever (right now) with Gareth, so I was interested to see what was going to happen next. I don’t think I even knew there was going to be a second book when I read the first one because it wrapped up so well. But man, oh man was I wrong. The continuation of The Summer Marked flowed so freakin’ perfectly from the end of the Winter People. Salome  is plunked right in the middle of a war of the ages (or rather, seasons.) The Summer Marked really seemed to pick up the pace of the first book. There is constant movement. I really liked that about the story because, since I already knew the characters, I was… Read more »
