    "My little sister has been reading a lot of romance novels lately and I brought up to my mom that she should really monitor the material at least a little. I helped her find some clean contemporary romance books and Looking for Alaska was one of the first I gave her. My sister said that it was an OK book but she has read better books."

    "I really wanted to enjoy this novel as the premise jumped out to me and I thought it could be very interesting. However, the characters are very dull and do not leave much to be desired. The attempts at comedy often fall flat, and comedic moments are definitely needed in this book that lacks many other dimensions. If you are looking for a quick read to pass the time and not think much about, then give it a try. Otherwise, find something else."

    "Where She Went by Gayle Forman (the second novel in the If I Stay series) is a great follow up ot If I Stay. It follows the story of Adam and Mia into the future and I love how it portrays how complicated life can be. I was thrilled when Adam and Mia met again and really enjoyed the further following of their lives. This is an interesting story even if you haven't read If I Stay."

    "I’m a modern woman who loves romance as much as the next person, but I can’t stand how strong most “romance” novels are these days. I want a book that makes me believe in the power of love, without the play by play of sexual exploits. This book will grab you and hold on to you until the last few pages. The author does a great job walking the line between giving details and letting the mind imagine things how it wants to."
