NetGalley, thank you for this wonderful book! At long last, the third installment in the Ascendance Trilogy! Jennifer Neilsen keeps the pages turning with Jaron’s kingdom, Carthya waging war against Avenia.
BJ Neary's insight:

The final book in the False Prince trilogy is a MUST READ!

a review of P.S. I Still Love You

a review of P.S. I Still Love You | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
This sequel was just as good as Han's first book, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, but even more probing of teens, romantic entanglements, and being true to ones' self. Lara Jean is really dating Peter, the guy she fell for back in 7th grade; but with his ex constantly part of their dating, can Lara Jean be sure enough of herself and Peter's feeling for her to rise above Genevieve's evil machinations? I did not want to put this book down; Lara Jean struggles like any teens, making good and bad choices, what will she do if some other guy from her past letter surfaces; enjoyable reading, ...

a review of Mosquitoland

a review of Mosquitoland | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
The saga of Mim ( known as Mary Iris Malone) as she travels by Greyhound bus from Mississippi (Mosquitoland) to Cleveland is hilarious, sad, and daunting. As an immature 16 year old, Mim captivated me with her words, thoughts, feelings and wacky ideas as she makes her way back to a mother she loves (and maybe back to herself too). The cast of characters she meets (Arlene, Walt Beck are a few of the good people) will make your reader heart happy while the villains (Poncho Man specifically) will scare and horrify. I have not met a character like Mim before and I did not want to stop readin...

a review of To All the Boys I've Loved Before | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
Jenny Han is one of my new favorite authors with this book and the sequel, P.S, I Still Love You. Lara Jean is one of three Song sisters, the middle child, who is sweet, fearful, and convincing as a protagonist who grows into a teen we can all relate to with her hopes, wishes and fears. As she grows up and writes letters (puts them into her mom's hat box for safe keeping) to boys she has loved (but never dated, just crushed on)Lara Jean is startled to find all her letters have been sent to those boys and craziness ensues!!!
