The Merciful Scar (2013)
4.07 of 5 Votes: 2
Okay, so this has become one of my most favourite books. Ever. It touched me in so many ways that I can't even explain, and gave me so much relief and understanding for so many things. It was so crazy because I felt like the main character had so many of the same thoughts and emotions as I have a...

I loved this book! There were so many unexpected twists & turns, right up to the very end of the book. I couldn't put it down because there was always something surprising happening that made me wonder what was going to happen next. The descriptions were very vivid & often made me feel li...

Lost property (2005)

Haven't read Moloney before but have heard much of the quality of novels like "Dougie" and "Gracie", which are taught in many middle school English programmes. This was recommended to me by a librarian in a big private school here in Brisbane and she was on the money. Very accessible, well writte...

I loved reading this book and having more Lemonade Mouth!! This tells of all the ups and downs of the summer after Lemonade Mouth came together. They deal with being actually famous, and not liking the price to pay for it. And there's more revolution.The characters were great as always, and all d...
The Replacement Wife (2014)

A Great Read!I really enjoyed this novel and look forward to The Replacement Husband! I felt some of the book was a little far fetched especially paying Chloe 20 Million dollars without so much as a blink as most Millionare/billionares are trying to keep their money not give it away to a gold di...
The Lost Songs (2011)

While this was an interesting story that we have copies of in the library, I have reservations. I really feel it is full of stereotypes. There are provocative questions that the book raises such as segregation and where you see it, like in the school lunchroom. Segregation we are doing ourselves....
Always and Forever (2012)

I got this book free, so my expectations were kinds low. I know I read what it was about but then for some reason I thought it was different. I was confused, so I went in with little back knowledge. But again, I got this free so I didn't expect much. I didn't expect to cry the little I did, or t...
Things I Shouldn't Think (2012)
3.35 of 5 Votes: 3
I don't know that I've been this upset about a book not being GREAT before. There was so much promise -- a book about intrusive thoughts, the quieter side of OCD that people don't really talk about! It's real! It's being handled so wonderfully! Finally! But the writing in this one killed it for m...
Professor (2014)
4.13 of 5 Votes: 4
This was a good legal novel, even if somewhat predictable in its plotline. A great law professor is squeezed out by a new dean and the university lawyer. The professor helps his former student in a trial against a trucking firm who is represented by that same university lawyer. Well-written and a...
If You're Reading This (2014)
4.07 of 5 Votes: 1
Things I liked about this book, first off I love how Mr. Reedy presents a reader real, non-stereotypical characters that are likable and have development. Mike Wilson is just that. I also adore Trent Reedy’s writing style, he delivers the reader images and ‘senses’ without going over the top. Las...
Ruby Unscripted (2009)
3.49 of 5 Votes: 5
Ruby Unscripted is about friendship family and faith. This is my first time reading a book that has put faith in its context. It was a slow start for me. I was constantly waiting for something exciting to happen. At first I thought that this will be another teenage love story. So I kept looking o...
Corazón de mariposa (2014)
3.6 of 5 Votes: 1
Lo que rescato del libro es la forma de escribir de Andrea Tomé y lo realista y cruda que es a la hora de contar algo, pero de ahí no me gusto ninguna otra cosa del libro.me llamaba mucho la atención el tema del libro que es La Anorexia porque tengo una amiga que sufrió problemas alimenticios y ...

She finds herself on the run from her latest “step-father”, Scotty, a ruthless man who is hunting her down, after he killed her mother during one of their monster fights. He ...
Crowned (2008)

Presley Ashbury is passionate about pageants. You know the kind: the swimsuit contest, talent show, evening gowns, and tiaras all around. Presley is quite good at them, and not just because she likes looking pretty in the spotlight (though that is a perk): she needs the scholarship money that goe...
