    ""If I Stay" didn't stack up to well against other books as the best young adult contemporary romance. It started off strong, but got stale at several points. I'd go with another book in this category."

    "Contemporary romance can be a muddy field to murk through, especially finding the best young adult contemporary romance books. Anna and the French Kiss definitely makes the top of my list for the best young adult contemporary romance books. This book was highly engaging and romantic, I'd recommend it for any young adult."

    "Oh man, Oh man. Honestly, at first I didn't know what I would get out of this book. While I love me some romance books, I also love a well laid out background on characters and a story line that flows - not bounces. Well I got all of that and more with this book. The characters were actually believable. I loved the journey they went on. Watching Brittany let Alex into her life in a way she's let no one else in before, really helped you see just what was hiding behind the "Perfect Brittany". "

Unless you're looking at it as a sad tale of what girls will fall for when they've been abused for so long. Cautionary tale? Yes. Romance novel? No way."

    "I honestly was hoping to love this book. The first two books had some issues but this book was really quite boring. I was actually sick to death of hearing Kiera talk about how gorgeous and perfect Kellan was with his wonderful hair etc. I also for the life of me could not understand why there all this best friends’ forever nonsense with her and Denny. Denny is her ex-boyfriend who she cheated on and who almost killed her and Kellan because of said cheating. It is unrealistic to believe that these three have become inseparable and such good friend with not an ounce of remorse. As much issues as I had with the first 2 books, they were filled with angst/suspense and I actually was not able to put either book down until I finished. This book however, I found myself putting it down every half hour or so because it was boring me to tears. I got that they were in love but I felt like I just had to keep reading it on every page. As much in love as they were, it’s unrealistic that life on the road would not have any angst for Kiera and Kellan. There should have been more issues for them being on the road. Everything was just absolutely perfect for them. Even with the whole Sienna Sexton drama everything was still absolutely perfect for them. Kiera was a judgmental, overly jealous prude and all of a sudden life on the road with all its indecisiveness, Kiera has turned into this perfect girlfriend/wife."

    "I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk. Two and a half years after an unspeakable tragedy left her a shadow of the girl she once was, Nastya Kashnikov moves to a new town determined to keep her dark past hidden and hold everyone at a distance. But her plans only last so long before she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the one person as isolated as herself: Josh Bennett. Josh’s story is no secret. Every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. When your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space. Everyone except Nastya who won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But as the undeniable pull between them intensifies, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding—or if he even wants to. The Sea of Tranquility is a rich, intense, and brilliantly imagined story about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the mira­cle of second chances."

    "This one is interesting because it has a really strong plot and a convincing love story all at once, which is fairly unusual for this genre. The writing is fairly tight if a bit purply at times, so I'd definitely recommend this one."

    "Another love story akin to the Twilight series, this one is about a young teenage, female witch, and her struggle to balance her normal life with her social appearances. The story lacks in every department and loses its focus with little character development and worn out scenarios of teenage angst. The romance is tripe and almost comical with how badly it progresses, since the teenage characters have so little depth to them."
