Choosing your favorite Sarah Dessen book is more challenging than choosing your favorite cocktail – they’re all so awesome (plus cocktails are also easier cause many contain whiskey…not a fan). While Judith has already shared her favorite, I felt it’s time to introduce you all to MY favorite, a book I love so much that I almost purchased it when I found a copy in South Africa just because it was there, which contains one of my Top 3 YA Hotties Of All Time!

NA Review: Here Without You (Between the Lines #4) by Tammara Webber


Here Without You Cover RevealHere Without You (Between the Lines Book #4) by Tammara Webber

Publisher: Amazon Digital Services

Format: Kindle edition

Reviewed by: Judith

Genre: New Adult Fiction

Score: 9/10

Ever been face to face with a book that you’ve been waiting years for and when it finally is there, ready to confront you, you run like a chicken and hide cause OMG you want to read it but really you just don’t want it – these characters, these situations, this world – to be over? (I’m looking at you, specifically, Harry Potter) Well, I’m there yet again, folks. Two long years I’ve adored the Between the Lines series. The melo-drama of teenage celebrities, their petty jealousies, their grand loves, all of it took my breath away. It was extremely well written and thought out. A tour de force of all I love best about YA/NA. And now, when I assumed it was done, this world is back! Tammara Webber has got me where it hurts and she’s not letting go. Get ready for a wild ride.

Remember When, Book 1 by T. Torrest

Remember When by T TorrestRemember When by T. Torrest

Publisher: Amazon Digital Services

Format: E-ARC

Reviewed by: Judith

Score: 10/10

Hands down, one of the best YA books I’ve read this year but caveat: its score is based off of the overwhelming feeling of happy nostalgia I felt when reading it. If you are younger or older, you will definitely be able to empathize with the main characters but maybe not at the same high level of awesome I did as a child of the 90s.

Format: Kindle

Reviewed by: Judith

Score: 7/10

Plot: It’s hard keeping secrets while growing up on a small island. But popular and charismatic Jake Hayes has a doozy: he’s been in love with his friend, Samantha Shay, for years. The night of Homecoming, he parties a little too hard and thanks to too much beer, decides to finally tell Sam how he feels. But disaster strikes and he winds up in the hospital after a horrific accident. Now Jake is mute thanks to a T-bar that embedded in his throat and he has to struggle to work his way back to some semblance of normal life. He’s juggling sign language classes, his family’s constant worry that something is wrong, an overzealous female classmate, and a growing relationship with Samantha. When the problems with her home life come to the surface, Jake realizes that his own problems aren’t the only ones out there and his relationship with her is tested to its limit. Will their relationship be able to handle his lack of voice and her tough home life? And more importantly, if their relationship does make it, will Sam ever get to hear Jake say how much he truly loves her?

Just when I started to think “sigh, just the same as a bazillion other YA books” BOOM! The author pulled an amazing switcheroo on me in a totally awesome way. (And no, not because there are zombies…although who doesn’t love a good zombie story?)

Am I the only one out there who wonders why the author’s name is Fisher Amelie and not Amelie Fisher? Lone wolf Judith needs to know! It’s a burning question that could probably be solved if I just went to her author page: www.fisheramelie.com but knowing me I’ll put it off and still be wondering five years from now…

New Adult: Ten Tiny Breaths by KA Tucker

Ten Tiny Breaths by KA Tucker

Publisher: Papoti Books (December 9, 2012)

Format: Kindle

Reviewed by: Judith

As an aside for anyone who cares about these sorts of things: I put out an open call for a new fictional boyfriend recently and luckily, this book’s hero, Trent, stepped up to fill the void. 8 pack, blue eyes, dimples, and so much guilt that it’s palpable. Just the way I like ’em. Swoon on a stick!

Books and Boys: We all have “types”

A few days ago, after yet another Judith/Ellen books conversation, I realized something: I totally have a book “type”. Just like how I know that the tall, über-jock looking guy at the bar will be the one I go for (it’s a weakness!) there are some books that, no matter how bad they might be for me, I will buy. Doesn’t matter if they’re YA/NA/romance novels, or if the book has a zillion 1 star reviews on Amazon, I just can’t say no! So now, dear readers, Judith and I are joining forces for just the second time to discuss our book types. Do you agree? Have we missed any important ones? What are yours??? Please let us know we’re not alone! Read More
