Buddy Review: You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith.

Posted April 26, 2013 by Rowena in Reviews | 0 Comments

Ames and I did our monthly buddy review over at Breezing Through.  Our April buddy review book is You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith.

Join us over at Breezing Through and discuss with us…if you want.

Now in paperback with a new cover, Jennifer E. Smith’s breathtaking novel about finding out where you are going by discovering what you’ve left behind.

Emma and her neighbor Peter are both lonely in a way that only bothers them on occasion. They both come from families they don’t quite understand. They both feel like something big is missing from their lives—and they’re both about to search for answers. When Emma makes a discovery that shakes the foundations of her identity, she convinces Peter to join her for a road trip. Each of them has something to find: For Emma, it is a grave—a grave that may be her only connection to her family. Peter is seeking something harder to define, but perhaps easier to navigate—a freedom, a sense of something more than what he has. Together, they take to the open road, engaging in a universal quest to make sense of who they are and where they come from…and learning a thing or two about love along the way.

Review: Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg.

Posted March 20, 2013 by Rowena in Reviews | 1 Comment

A hilarious new novel from Elizabeth Eulberg about taking the wall out of the wallflower so she can bloom. Don’t mess with a girl with a Great Personality.

Everybody loves Lexi. She’s popular, smart, funny…but she’s never been one of those girls, the pretty ones who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup).

Lexi’s sick of it. She’s sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She’s sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She’s sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she’s sick of having all her family’s money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection.

The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren’t going to know what hit them. Because Lexi’s going to play the beauty game – and she’s in it to win it.


I did a buddy review of this book with my bestest book buddy Ames over at her team buddy review blog, Breezing Through.  Check it out here (click on picture):

Ames and I have a bunch of fun reviewing books together so this buddy review thing will be a monthly thing.  I’ll let you guys know when our monthly reviews go up.

I hope to see you guys over there!
