    "The punk / emo subgenre is a relatively popular one, yet romance novels are hard to come by. Enter "Beautiful Disaster", part of the "Beautiful" series. It really shows that people can find true love while being true to themselves. This is a captivating story that really roped me into the series. It drags on a bit in places and seems a bit cliche, but overall, it's a great read!"

    "Although Insurgent is set in a dystopian Chicago that I would not associate with romance. Insurgent has a budding romance with the typical family drama that one would expect from a Young Adult book. "

    "This book invoked disturbing passionate thoughts of interspecies breeding and the disastrous consequences that result. I only with this book would have involved an emo skater or a punk so I could related to the content matter more. Never the less, a great romance novel! I just wished it focused more on the topics I was seeking. "

    "I found this book to be really moving. The author was really successful in portraying humanity in all its complexity. He did not shy away from the dark side of humanity but still managed to present the beauty present in humanity. Overall I love the sense of acceptance and hope I was left with after finishing the book."

    " You can predict pretty much everything that is going to happen from the start of the book. It seems like a bunch of chick flicks/books combined... Bianca is a grumpy girl who hangs out with the popular kids, but doesn't seem to think that she belongs when she is obviously not as pretty as everyone else (which is weird, considering her mom lectures people professionally about loving yourself). Half the things she does in this book don't make sense. It's like she's just not thinking at all, but thinking too much at the same time. I understand that the author was in her teens when she wrote this, so the seemingly random actions of the main character compared with the rash decisions makes more sense. The random introduction to Wuthering Heights nearing the end of the book paired with Bianca's end decision seems also a little silly. It's like Keplinger really wanted this book to be an insightful, feminist, unique take on relationships in high school, but it ended up just being overly predictable."

    "This has been and remains one of my favorite books -- Nevermore. Why? I love the classics and the author so cleverly mimics Poe's style that it was like the author, Poe, long dead came to life again. I was spell bound and amused from the moment I opened the book. Steeped in the classics as I am, the high poetic language was a sheer joy to read, and the mystery and humor and relationship between Edgar and Sissy was great. Several years later, I am buying it again for my new Kindle reader. Why? Because I thought I would take a wild ride with Edgar and Sissy again. The actual book sits in the shelf next to some of my collectible books. :) I highly recommend the entire series."
