No matter how busy I get, I always find time to read a few pages of a book each day. Sometimes I find myself nodding off to sleep while trying to squeeze in a few chapters late at night, and other times I’m wide awake as I get through a thrilling novel. Or then there are the days I try to forget about car sickness and make use of my bus time by skimming some passages. I’ve also started writing young adult book reviews at work, for one of our sister sites Miss Literati, just so I have an excuse to keep up with the latest releases and motivation to get through to the end. Allow me to share a few excerpts from reviews I’ve been doing lately:
Immaculate by Katelyn Detweiler:
Sure, everyone’s heard the story of Immaculate Conception, but what would people’s reactions be if it happened in modern time? In Katelyn Detweiler’s IMMACULATE, 17-year-old Mina encounters a mystical old woman named Iris while staying late at work one night, and the woman eerily explains that her life is going to change forever – she’s about to have a baby. Since Mina’s a virgin, she shrugs off Iris’ warnings as simply the ramblings of a crazy woman, but when she finds herself pregnant some time later, she is beyond shocked.
The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne:
What if you spent your whole life not knowing who your father was, growing up just trying to finding your way within your small family and circle of friends? Then imagine one day your mother dies unexpectedly and you’re wisked away to live with relatives until you find out that the father you never met is actually right in front of you. In fact, he has been the whole time. He’s a famous politician who’s running for President of the United States. That’s exactly what happens to Kate Quinn in Jenn Marie Thorne’s debut novel, THE WRONG SIDE OF RIGHT.
