I often read books way in advance of their publication date. Sometimes I review them early and sometimes I like to wait til their release week. (Sometimes the publisher specifically requests that I wait; although, that doesn't happen too often.) Here are 3 books that I loved and will be reviewing more extensively in the coming months.
Nothing But Ghosts
Beth Kephart is easily one of the best teen writers out there today. Her gift is in her description. With brilliantly realized and true-to-life characters, Beth Kephart doesn't talk down to teens. Nothing But Ghosts is another beautifully written, literary novel that touches on grief, love, and the mysteries of life.
This is Meg Cabot's follow-up to Airhead. Airhead was fun, totally off the wall, and completely enjoyable. The same goes for Being Nikki. I just love how Meg Cabot incorporates science fiction with mystery and romance.
Along for the Ride
I discovered Sarah Dessen about two years ago and immediately flew through all of her books. Along for the Ride was no different. Dessen once again focuses on what she writes best—real life with all of it's friend/sibling/boyfriend/parent complications.
