Tia and Will’s lives get flipped upside down when they’re voted Yearbook’s Biggest Flirts in this sassy novel from the author of Endless Summer and The One That I Want.

Tia just wants to have fun. She’s worked hard to earn her reputation as the life of the party, and she’s ready for a carefree senior year of hanging out with friends and hooking up with cute boys. And her first order of business? New guy Will. She can’t get enough of his Midwestern accent and laidback swagger. 


       I don't think I had ever read a Jennifer Echols book before this one, but what a way to start it off. After reading the synopsis for this story, I was worried that it would be another one of those stories where the girl plays hard to get but somehow still ends up falling for the boy. Man was I wrong. Right from the first chapter, I was in love with Will and Tia. 

      Tia is the typical party girl of high school. She's afraid of success and tries hard not to be noticed for spectacular things, even though she is majorly talented. Will is the new boy in town, the shiny new toy everybody wants. When Will comes to find Tia at the party instead of any other girl sneaking glances at him, they hit it off immediately. Tia even ditched the boy she usually hooked up with just to spend more time with Will. After drinking a few, Tia convinced Will to come home with her. I'll keep you guessing on what exactly happened that night but after it was all over, it didn't end in the best way. Apparently, Will was not aware of the fact that Tia did not date, she simply hooked up with people. Eventually, Will left heartbroken and Tia felt...weird. She felt something she hadn't exactly felt before, but she ignored it and fell asleep.

      The next morning, she woke up and found herself late to her first day of band practice. Grabbing her drum, she jumped the fence and ran to the school. After lining up with the other drum players in their school band, she realized the person standing next to her was...Will. Will was an amazing musician on top of all of the things Tia had already loved about him. BUT she did not want a boyfriend. So, Will asked out one of Tia's most hated enemies and Tia was immediately jealous. Personally, there were some points in the book where I loved her as a main character, but other times I absolutely hated her. She's really a love/hate type of character. 

     Pick up Jennifer Echols' newest novel to be drawn into the hot and cold friends-with-benefits-ship of Will and Tia. The two of them will not leave you disappointed. From steamy scenes to heart melting affection, Echols has me anxiously waiting for book two in this series to come along.

Date rape—from the accused’s point of view—is the subject of this “finely crafted and thought-provoking page-turner” (SLJ), a National Book Award Finalist from Printz Honor–winning author Chris Lynch. Now available in a tenth-anniversary edition.
Keir Sarafian may not know much, but he knows himself. And the one thing he knows about himself is that he is a good guy. A guy who’s a devoted son and brother, a loyal friend, and a reliable teammate. And, maybe most important of all, Keir is a guy who understands that when a girl says no, she means it. But that is not what Gigi Boudakian, childhood friend and Keir’s lifelong love, says at all. What Gigi says seems impossible to Keir—something inexcusable—the worst thing he can imagine, the very opposite of everything he wants to be. As Keir recalls the events leading up to his f…

Stacking the Shelves (8)

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I have come to realize that I miss book blogging! This is something I used to love doing, and I really need to get back to doing things that I love. To kick it off, I went on a trip to Barnes and Noble to pick up some books to get me back into the swing of things.

Waiting on Wednesday (2)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Home is where the bodies are buried.

Darkly humorous and heart-wrenchingly beautiful, Jennifer Longo’s YA debut about a girl stuck living in a cemetery will change the way you look at life, death, and love.

Leigh sells graves for her family-owned cemetery because her father is too lazy to look farther than the dinner table when searching for employees. Working the literal graveyard shift, she meets two kinds of customers:

Pre-Need: They know what’s up. They bought their graves a long time ago, before they needed them.

At Need: They are in shock, mourning a loved one’s unexpected death. Leigh avoids sponging their agony by focusing on things like guessing the headstone choice (mostly granite).

Sarcastic and smart, Leigh should be able to stand up to her family and quit. But her w…
