Paparazzi Princess - Jen Calonita I love Laney.

Family Affairs (Secrets of My Hollywood Life)

Family Affairs  - Jen Calonita What I love about this series are the "secrets", the little insider tidbits on life in the spotlight. :) Very interesting. I'd always wondered about the "and" cast member in credits on a show. Now I know. Cool.

All I Want Is Everything (Gossip Girl, #3)

Return to Me

Return to Me - Justina Chen Justina Chen writes amazingly beautiful prose.

Girl of the Moment

Girl of the Moment - Lizabeth Zindel Three stars because it kept me engaged, but I really didn't like Lily at all. I thought she was silly and made really bad decisions over and over and over. I know that when I was her age, there were a lot of things I just didn't GET, so I probably would have been the same way. But then, she had these people SPELLING things out to her and she still just did her own thing and flat out refused to do her job. Her dad kind of threw me off too. He was so adamant about her following through but then demanding she not go to a party that Sabrina specifically asked her to be at? WTF Dad? You can't be so stubborn about one thing and then change the rules to suit you.I thought the premise was great and the writing was easy to read. It was Lily's actions that had me cringing through the whole thing. But then, I never did care for The Devil Wears Prada, so maybe this book wasn't for me to begin with.

Fame, Glory, and Other Things on My To-Do List

Fame, Glory, and Other Things on My To Do List - Janette Rallison This book went between "fun" and frustrating to me. Now I realize it was published in 2005, so some of the stuff that's just not cool now (like calling the boy character "exotic" because he had some Native American blood) was probably more acceptable, though not less wrong.

Keep Holding On

Keep Holding On - Susane Colasanti Fell in love with Noelle and with this book.

Kill You Last (Thrillogy)

Kill You Last - Todd Strasser HOLY CRAP. DID not see the ending coming.

Radiant Darkness

Radiant Darkness - Emily Whitman This book was gorgeous. A beautiful retelling of the Persephone story. :)

The Treasure Map of Boys (Ruby Oliver Quartet Series #3)

The Treasure Map of Boys: Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch, Gideon—and me, Ruby Oliver - E. Lockhart I can't get enough of Ruby Oliver. I sincerely hope there are more of these coming.

The Future of Us

The Future of Us - Jay Asher, Carolyn Mackler 3.5 stars

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy Series #1)

Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy Series #1) - This book came out when I was about DONE with reading paranormal and thirsty for more contemporary novels. However, I got to meet the author at an event this past weekend. She did a reading from the sequel Supernaturally, and I was intrigued. When she talked about what the book was about, I was even more intrigued. This wasn't your typical paranormal.I figured if the book was at least as entertaining as Kiersten, then I'd enjoy it. I was right.I LOVED it. Evie is a great character--kick butt and funny. And Lend. Oh Lend. I LOVE that it's a book set in a paranormal world with a girl who just wants to be normal. She gets excited over the funniest things. And it was a page-turner for sure.So, not much of a book review per se, but I'm looking forward to picking up Supernaturally and giving it a go.
