Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor

“I am so sad to see this series come to an end, but I am loving reading this last installment so far! It has all the romance and action that was promised and it should be an amazing series closer. I cannot wait to see what Laini Taylor is going to write next!”

Hope is a Ferris Wheel by Robin Herrera

“Star lives in a trailer park with her mom and sister. Being the new kid at school doesn’t help and making friends is even harder; especially when you get teased for all of the above.  The only thing that gets her through every day is reading her favorite poems by Emily Dickinson. This is a very touching read so far and my heart goes out to the main character. I hope everything works out for her by the end of the book. So far I am really enjoying it!”
