Time Between Us

Anna's life is thoroughly normal until she meets Bennett, how is thrilling and different from the other boys at her school. But never, not even in her wildest dreams, could she guess how different he really is. I thought Time Between Us was a fun light read. It had its cliche moments, but they worked. I would recommend this book to people who like romance books.

Wow!!!! Lucid is really wonderful. It had me guessing all the way up until the end, and the ending was one of the best twists I have ever read. I would highly recommend this book!

The Cup and the Crown

I was so lucky to find The Cup and the Crown! I had read the first book, The Silver Bowl, last year as an ARC and loved it. This book was just as amazing. I wouldn’t read it if I hadn’t read the first one, though. The book continues the story of Molly, a young girl with mysterious powers, as she and her friends try to find a Loving Cup made by her grandfather. There’s a lot of magic and mystery in this book, so it’s great for it you like fantasy. I would totally recommend it!

Linnea in Monet's Garden

Linnea in Monet's Garden is about Linnea, a girl who went to Paris with her neighbor. She likes pictures by Monet so they went to Paris to see his garden and paintings. If you read this book, you can learn about France and Monet. This book has some French words that kids may have trouble reading or understanding.

Tilly's Moonlight Garden

Tilly's Moonlight Garden is a wonderful book for kids who enjoy quiet and mysterious books. I thought it was interesting to feel how Tilly felt moving house to a place where she had no friends. Tilly somehow makes friends with a pregnant fox. Meanwhile, she worries about whether her mother can have a baby without getting sick. Most of the book was about Tilly playing in the garden, and I wanted to be there with her. The garden was big with lots of life in it, and during the winter it seemed very nice, with hills to sled down.

The Shadow Society

When a new mysterious boy arrives at Darcy Jones's school, her life changes forever...

Darcy finds herself  drawn to this mysterious, handsome boy, Conn.

Sounds like Twilight, right? But Conn is no vampire and rather Darcy is the monster - a shade, creatures who exist in an alternate Chicago, and their lives focus around the revenge on humans. Darcy, who knows nothing of this, is thrown into a world where she is torn between her promises, her blood and her love...

I really liked The Shadow Society and couldn't put it down once I started. Recommended to all.

Ask the Passengers

Ask the Passengers is about a senior in high school, Astrid, who is questioning her identity and place in her family. Her mom loves her sister more, her dad spends all his time stoned, and her sister doesn't support her. The town Astrid lives in is not accepting of differences and so when Astrid begins to fall in love with a girl, she keeps it a secret. Throughout the story she becomes more comfortable with who she really is and with letting the people she loves know the true her. I found myself wanting to tell the characters how they could be better people, and hoping they were accepting of Astrid. I loved the ending and it made me appreciate the love that I have in my life.
