Book Review Catch Up – Young Adult

As I recently mentioned, I’ve been horrible about keeping up with book reviews. I’ve read 22 books so far this year, but I’ve only posted 3 reviews so far on this blog. Instead of flooding this blog with book reviews, I’m just going to split the books into groups, tell you a little about each book, and then link to the review on GoodReads. Today, I’m going to focus on the young adult books I’ve read so far this year.


1. The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott
Girl is in love with her best friend’s boyfriend. She knows she shouldn’t be, but she can’t help it – and is it just her imagination, or is he starting to like her back?

2. Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King
Vera’s mother left her a long time ago, and now her best friend is dead. What does she know about the night he died that she’s not telling anyone?

3. Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald
Sadie’s been in love with her best friend for years, but she eventually realizes that she needs to get over him if she’s ever going to move on with her life. Will she be able to figure out who she is without him?

4. Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett
Since Rose’s dad died, her life hasn’t exactly been normal. It doesn’t help that her best friend is obsessed with sex or that she likes a guy she totally shouldn’t, or that she cant seem to stop causing trouble. Can things get any worse?

5. The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise
Girl wants to create the best app ever and win scholarship money. But what if her app goes too far? WARNING: Worst book I’ve read this year.

6. The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez
Amelia’s always been overshadowed by her younger sister, Charly, but what happens when Charly does something totally unforgiveable? Can their relationship survive?

7. Such a Pretty Girl by Laura Wiess
Meredith was supposed to have 9 years of freedom before her pedophile father was released from jail. Instead, she got 3, and now she’s 15 and trapped. How can she survive the next 3 years?

8. The Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr
Ever since her dad caught her having sex when she was 13, Deanna’s life has been horrible. Her dad won’t look at her. Everyone at school thinks they know what she’s all about. The more time goes on, the more Deanna starts to think they might be right.

Science Fiction

9. Pivot Point by Kasie West
Addison’s part of a special community where everyone has special powers. Hers is that she can see both outcomes of any decision she has to make. When her parents tell her they’re getting divorced, she has to See the next 6 weeks to decide which parent she wants to live with. But what if she’s faced with an impossible decision?

10. Split Second (Pivot Point #2) by Kasie West
Can’t really tell much about this plot without spoiling the first. Let’s just say there are more characters and more questions that need to be answered.

  1. This is great; no need to kill yourself posting reviews. Keep reading fun. One or two line blurbs are awesome, too.

    • I actually did link to the reviews, but I actually might start doing what you said – writing a few lines of a review instead of a multi-paragraph one. Because you’re absolutely right – reading should be fun! Thanks for commenting! 🙂
