Book Reviews



***UPDATE, 10/8/16***

While this blog is mostly dedicated to 
Young Adult Fiction books, I also include
adult and New Adult fiction reviews.
Also, the YA books reviewed will be mostly
in the fantasy, PNR, and UF categories.
Nonfiction books will only be 
reviewed if they deal with YA topics.



NOTE

These reviews are listed in alphabetical
(by author's last name) and
chronological order.
Whenever I have books by the 
same author, the first one 
read and reviewed is listed first.
Anthologies and co-authored books are listed 
under the name of the first  author
mentioned on the book's front cover.
