A Fieldguide For Heartbreakers by Kristin Tracey



When best friends Dessy and Veronica arrive in Prague for a prestigious writing workshop, their priorities diverge. Dessy, fragile from a recent breakup, has come to mend her broken heart by honing her craft. Veronica has just dumped her boyfriend and plans to blow off the workshop. She’d rather master a different subject—boys. Veronica gets right to work on her “man-wall”—one paper cutout for every hot-dude she meets— and embarks on her mission to cover a wall of their dorm by summer’s end. At times, Dessy thinks her friend might be a genius. At others, Veronica seems more like an agent of chaos.

As if their love lives weren’t complicated enough, soon a homicidal suitemate is bent on killing Veronica and Dessy, and both girls are hiding secrets that could wreck their friendship. Well, no one ever said breaking hearts was a simple craft....



Dessy was a great main character and she added to this really cute Summer read.


I loved this plot I thought it was different because the characters are way different from each other but still great. Also because they were going to a writing camp in Prague which served as a great backdrop for the story. The plot was fast moving and really good. It never really slowed down.


I thought all the characters were really good and all had unique quality's. Some of Dessy and Veronica's love interests and roommates were really different they they just added to the story and made it way better,

Overall I really everything about the book and thought it was different but still a great summer read.

The Karma Club by Jessica Brody


Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. It’s that mysterious, powerful force that brings harmony to the universe. You know—do good things and you will be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what’s coming to you. A sort of cosmic balancing act.


But when Mason Brooks, Maddy’s boyfriend of two years, gets caught tongue-wrestling with Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them—except that they wind up the hot new couple of Colonial High School, it seems like Karma has officially left Maddy in the lurch. That’s why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade, decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization whose sole purpose is to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind. Whether they’re modifying Heather Campbell’s acne cream as part of “Operation Butterface,” or righting a few wrongs when it comes to Angie and Jade’s own slimy exes, they know they’re just doing what Karma should have done in the first place. They’re taking care of one another.


Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe. Because it turns out, when you mess with Karma, Karma messes back. Now Maddy must find a way to balance her life for good, even as everything around her seems to be toppling to the ground.


This book was funny, cute and totally addictive. The plot kept getting better and better I couldn't even put it down.

I loved all the characters. Madison was funny, smart, and had everything wrong happen to her but she still made it through everything. Her friend Angie and Jade were great BFF's who wanted to help Maddy with all their evil plans.

The plot was cute and really good. The book was pretty hard to put down. It was a nice light read but has meaning to it.

Overall I loved almost everything and would recommend this to anyone. Especially if you want a nice light book to read.

I am definitely looking forward to more of Jessica Brody books

The Snowball Effect by Holly Nicole Hoxter


Lainey Pike can tell you everything you need to know about the people in her family just by letting you know how they died. Her reckless stepfather drove his motorcycle off the highway and caused the biggest traffic jam in years. Her long-suffering grandmother lived through cancer and a heart attack before finally succumbing to a stroke. And Lainey's mother—well, Lainey's mother hanged herself in the basement just days after Lainey's high school graduation.

Now Lainey's five-year-old brother is an orphan and her estranged older sister is moving back home to be his guardian. Meanwhile, Lainey's boyfriend is thinking about having a family of their own, and her best friends are always asking the wrong sorts of questions and giving advice Lainey doesn't want to hear. As she tries to pull away from everything familiar, Lainey meets an intriguing new guy who, through a series of Slurpee's, burgers, and snowballs, helps her to make peace with a parent she never understood.




This book was okay. The characters didn't have much to them and Lainey to me was whiny.

The characters I think were kinda bland and had no depth and no real personality. Lainey was whiny. Vanessa and Collin(brother and sister) were okay but weird. Riley(her boyfriend) was really clingy which annoys me.

The plot was average but was pretty good to read. The ending was weird and not good enough. This took me longer to read then usual which to mean usually means the book is okay but not favorite.

Overall I did not like the characters that much. They were just okay. The plot was average and not a very good ending.

I was really looking forward to reading this book but I have to say I was disappointed.

I would still read the book. It was pretty good but the characters and plot fell flat for me. I did enjoy readingit just it did not live up to my liking.

Being Nikki by Meg Cabot






There's no escape
When everyone is watching you.

Emerson Watts was pretty sure there couldn't be anything worse than being a straight A student whose brain had been transplanted into the body of a teenage supermodel.

But it turned out she was wrong.

Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who's mysteriously gone missing, a brother who's shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op, and a British heartthrob who's written a song about her that's topping the charts.

How can Em balance all that with school, lingerie runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. John—especially when she's got final exams; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a former best friend, Christopher, who's intent on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love; and a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side...

But then, nobody said it was going to be easy, being Nikki.


I loved this book.

I think Meg Cabot has a really good writing style, it is very detailed and explains just what you want to know.


Em is a little whiny but other than that she is good. The guys in the book all sound mad and clingy. Christopher sounds good but Em is always complaining how they aren't together and they both are in love. Gabriel and Brandon sound mean. Gabrial sounds really clingy. Brandon just mean.


The plot is very original and very good. The plot is always growing and is really addictive to read. The ending is really good and makes you want to to read the next book.


Overall I would say is good and really addictive to read.

A Book I Can't Wait To Read


The Unwriten Rule by Elizabeth Scott


Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like you best friend's boyfriend.


Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more...

Comes Out March 16

Can't wait

Has anyone else noticed?

That in books if the characters go school they are always in biology. Almost every book I read where they are in school they always seem to be in biology no matter what grade there in in.

I am in biology right now and I am a freshman. I was wondering at some schools do they teach biology Junior year? At my school you usually take it in 10 grade but I am advanced so I took it this year. So is biology just a easy class for someone to right in a book or they just think that every grade takes it?

Has anyone else noticed this or something where just about every book seems to have?

An example

A Match Made In High School by Kristin Walker


When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life canat get any worse. Thatas until she marries her ahusbanda: jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fionaas long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very dorky, very big Johnny Mercer.

Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.



I loved this book it was realy cute. It had pranks,crushes, and a lot of drama that make up a really book.


Fiona was a great main character. She had flaws and a best friend who lied to her. Her parents are againest the marriage ed class which brings attention to her. Gabe her crush ended up being a jerk which helped Fiona grow as a charater. Jonny I think was a great guy he helped Fiona get out of trouble which a good guy should do.


The plot was preety good. There was a lot of pranks pulled and was full of drama. Fiona was againest being with Todd which made the book better seeing a hate. The ending was ok but the falling action was pretty good there was a few twist you wouldn't expect.


I thought the book was pretty good. I love Kristen's writing style and I can't wait to read more by her.

How To Say Goodbye In Robot by Natalie Standiford



New to town, Beatrice is expecting her new best friend to be one of the girls she meets on the first day. But instead, the alphabet conspires to seat her next to Jonah, aka Ghost Boy, a quiet loner who hasn't made a new friend since third grade. Something about him, though, gets to Bea, and soon they form an unexpected friendship. It's not romance, exactly - but it's definitely love. Still, Bea can't quite dispel Jonah's gloom and doom - and as she finds out his family history, she understands why. Can Bea help Jonah? Or is he destined to vanish?


I liked this book. It was kinda weird but it was good.
The characters were good but a little weird. Bea was a good main character but I think she was weird. Jonah was a good male character but was also a little weird.
The plot was good. I think the radio show was weird and some of the people there were weird like the dude who thinks he is from the future. I loved the part where you find out about Jonah having a brothere who he thought was lost. It was a good way to base the last half of the book and I really enjoyed it.
Overall it was a little weird but pretty good.

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain


A prodigal son
A dangerous love
A deadly secret . . .I stood back and watched his movements. Daniel had that way about him that could shut me down in an instant. . . . I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again. “Tell me . . . I mean . . . why did you come back? Why now, after all this time?”
Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared—the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in blood. But she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night really held. And when Daniel returns three years later, Grace can no longer deny her attraction to him, despite promising Jude she’ll stay away.
As Grace gets closer to Daniel, her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind Jude and Daniel's dark secret . . . and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it—her soul.

But that’s not what happens.This year, Coach Hartley moved up every JV player but two—and one of those two was Parker. Now, she’s stuck with the freshmen, her friends are cutting her loose, and her love of the game is seriously beginning to fail. But Parker is determined to get her life back. She has to get on the varsity team, and she has the perfect plan. All she needs now is the right kind of coach.

Defying The Diva by D. Anne Love


For Haley Peterson her freshman year is fun with two best friends and the only freshman on the newspaper. But when she reveals a little too much everyone in the school is aganiest her and her two best friends leave her.
For the summer she works at a resort where everything begins to change. But along with the job there is some heartbreak and new friends.
I loved this book. It is being strong for who you are and not letting others get to you. Haley really struggles the end of her freshman year to bullies. People can definatly relate to bullies. The ook is very refreshing and has ups and downs to it that make up a really good book.
Haley is a great main character she has many emotions and they all aresomething you have been through before.
The boys in the story are good too. I liked one a little better because Evan had the girls chasing after him.
The plot I loved because bullies are around now and everyone seems to know one. Haley had to learn to accept the change in her life and keep going on with life.

Demon Pricess:Reign Or Shine by Michelle Rowen


As if moving away from your home and trying to fit into a new home isn't enough. Nikki finds out that her long lost father is theking of the Shadowlands and he next heir. She is also a Darklingwhich is half human and half emon. She meets Michael and starts to grow some feelings for him.
( sorry that is not the best that is my own shortened summary)
Review: I thought to begin this book was going to bad and just a typical book. It totally wasn't I actually enjoyed the book.
Nikki was a great main character and kinda leads a life where her father is gone and her mother keeps getting remarried and has to move across the country. She was a tpyical girl falling in love and having friends. She seemed off a little in some way I don't know. Michael sounded like a typical forbbin love.
The plot was pretty good where Nikki finds out she is a demon princess and must become queen because her father is dying. Elizabeth is ruining her life and everyone ios telling Nikki to drink the potion so she forgets everything. The plot was kinda weird though I got lost a few times and forgot if I had read some thing.
Overall it as a good first book in a series and I will most likely read the next one.
