Bookworming in the 21st Century
Kristen reviewed Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce this week - and gave it 5 stars! This book is definitely one I've been looking forward to and is a supposedly unique spin on the classical tale of Little Red Riding Hood. Kristen also recommended the book Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books by Francesca Lia Block, a book that I've never heard of but one that apprantly addresses many various issues from AIDS to homosexuality.
Teens Read and Write
I'm feeling a bit biased for picking Alyssa's posts, but she has a very short and cute post semi-obsessing over Fenn from Darklight by Lesley Livingston. I have yet to read the book, but I'm sure you all know how much I love my guys, right? She also wrote a thorough review of Freaksville by Kitty Keswick, with scans from the book to match.
YA Book Queen
Lea wrote a review of Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson, another book that has a very pretty cover and interesting in that the perspective is from a teen female werewolf. She also wrote a review of Fallen by Lauren Kate; I always love reading reviews of Fallen because it recieves so many mixed ratings, and Lea gave it a 3.5 rating.
In Which a Girl Reads
Meg wrote some awesome-amazing rants/discussion posts this week (don't listen to her putting herself down!), and you can check them out here: continuing a blog revolution and follow up: why ya romance needs to change. She also has a meme called Captivating Thursday, where she spotlights pictures, quotes, videos and the like, and I definitely recommend checking it out. Meg's latest Captivating Thurday can be found here.
Lucy didn't post much this week (like me), but she did have a short, concise review of O' Juliet by Robin Maxwell. She also has a new, very fresh and spring-y layout that's A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! :)
Pirate Penguin Reads
Sandy wrote a great review on Whisper by Phoebe Kitandis, another book with an intriguing premise that I'm looking forward too (are we seeing a trend here?). She gave it 4 stars, and actually praised the fact that the whole family was alive, lol! Sandy's also hosting a contest for a copy of Shadows of Myth and Legend by E.J. Stevens or swag, so go enter before April 11th for your chance to win.
And that's it for now! I'll talk to you guys in a week, provided that I don't get squashed by Pooh bear. I'll try to bring back some pictures to share, if anyone's interested. (I know, who would be interested in my life, right?) Happy last week of March and, if you're like me, spring break!
Sidenote: Pertaining to emails, if you email me this week, or technically next week, and I don't respond, please feel free to email me again. It's not because I intend to ignore you, I promise!
