    "When I first noticed that A Walk To Remember was a book, and not only a movie, you can imagine I was more than thrilled. I absolutely loved the movie and it was the movie I always turn to when I need a good cry. I immediately looked at the reviews posted online. I was sadden to notice that there were a lot of mixed reviews regarding the differences between the movie and the book. So, I was hesitant to buy and read it, because I didn't want to end up not enjoying the story and the way it was written. I waited about three weeks before I gave in and ordered it. I read it all in one siting (which isn't that much of an achievement, considering it is only 200 pages long). I loved the story. I liked how in the movie, they made it their own and did change the way the characters, especially Jamie, was depicted. I came to notice that although they are about the same story, they have their differences and it isn't fair to compare them. I think if you stop comparing them, you will see how great of a book it truly is. It made me cry and laugh and feel all sorts of emotions, I haven't sorted out yet. Long story short, read the book. It is amazing and you will be glad you did. "

    "Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is a fantastic story that will really make you think about people and their upbringings. Reading this book gave me great perspective about other people and different cultures. Pride and Prejudice has to be the best love and hate relationship book available on the market. "

    "Flipped is a classic romantic comedy of errors told in alternating chapters by two fresh, funny new voices. You could probably finish this in one sitting so it is the perfect length for most young adults (9-14). And it's very well written and a joy to read."

    "Love and hate relationships are a common occurrence in everyday life, but it seems difficult to find literary works which highlight this, since it's not a romanticized notion. "Playing For Keeps" is a breath of fresh air, as is the whole "Neighbor From Hell" series, that caters to this forgotten niche. Overall, it's written very well and is compelling; I highly recommend it."

    "Overall - I enjoyed it. Yes, you can tell it's a first book. I found it a little slow at first, but got hooked into the action around 60% through. It does fall to some pretty typical young adult fantasy trends - some teen angst (though not a lot at all), a love triangle (not the main plot line though), messed up parent/child relationships - typical stuff for the genre but at it's heart it's still an action story about finding big old bad and saving the day. I think the author has come up with a very interesting concept and world here; I really like her take on common occult fantasy cannon/mythology and ordered the rest of the series on Kindle to see where she takes it. I wouldn't paint this with the same brush as Twilight - and if you are sick of teen angst Vampire stuff, this definitely isn't that. Summary: Strong female lead, interesting supporting cast, and interesting take on well known cannon."

They stop talking for a while, which causes some drama but eventually find their way back to each other. The story really draws you in and it is hard to put the book down."
