Runaway is the third and final book in the Airhead YA trilogy by Meg Cabot.

Here I am sounding like a broken record again - but please, please, PLEASE do not read the review of this book if you haven't yet read Airhead and Being Nikki - it will have all sorts of spoilers for the uninitiated!

Anyway, Runaway starts shortly after Being Nikki left off - the recently-revealed-psycho Brandon has Em held hostage, basically, because he has threatened to tell his father, president of Stark Enterprises, where the real Nikki is (and that she's alive in another girl's body) if Em doesn't go along with his crazy plan to get whatever info Nikki has that made her killable in order to take down his father (because he doesn't like him anymore than Em does). Oh, yeah, and his oh-so-great plan to force Em to pretend to be his girlfriend.

Doesn't get more insane than that. Especially for a guy as dumb as Brandon.

From there, some pretty darn exciting stuff starts happening. Stuff that I don't want to spoil by hinting at here. I'll just say that Em certainly doesn't take her hostage situation lying down - and romance is not dead - though it might be highly frustrating (but when is it not?)! Runaway is as stock full of hot guys as the last two books in the series, which is never a drawback.

If you've already read Airhead and Being Nikki (and you better have if you are reading this!), then you certainly don't need me to convince you to read it.

It's as laugh-out-loud funny, entertaining, spooky, and suspenseful as the last two - with a massive twist near the end to tie the whole thing into a big bow of love to the fans.

Though I was sad that the trilogy was over, I was happily satisfied with the end. Of course, I wouldn't have said no to a few more pages. But that's a common complaint of mine when a book I really like/love is over.

There were a couple of plot lines I saw coming - but the thing about Meg Cabot's writing is, it's so fun that the destination isn't even the best part - it's the great characters, romance, and zippy lines that scream, "MEG CABOT!".

What are you waiting for??? Go read Runaway!

I absolutely loved this book. In series and trilogies, endings can often disappoint, but this story certainly did not. Exciting up until the very end, it was, like all of Meg's books, impossible to put down.

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.


When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Interview with Joanna Philbin!

Today we have an extra special guest! Joanna Philbin, author of The Daughters series, is here to tell us about the fourth and (*sniff*) final book in the series - The Daughters Join the Party - as well as answer some other questions!

Welcome to the Bibliophile Support Group, Joanna! We're happy to have you!

So, for anybody who hasn't read the first three books in The Daughters series (read my reviews here: The Daughters, The Daughters Break the Rules, The Daughters Take the Stage) can you give everybody a general idea of what they're about?

Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson are best friends who are normal fourteen year-old girls in almost every way. Except for one: each girl has a parent who is incredibly famous. And her parent’s fame complicates her life in a big way. Lizzie’s mom is a supermodel, but Lizzie isn’t what most people would call “beautiful” – in fact, she’s what most people might call “unusual-looking.” How do you deal with having a supermodel mother when you don’t …

#YAStandsFor Daily Social Challenge... Day 5!

In my final day of participating in the I Read YA Week celebration (you can keep partying, it goes on through Monday!), I found myself presented with a new challenge of: Create a graphic showcasing an inspirational YA quote.

I'm not super tech savvy and I've never created a graphic before. But with just a little Google searching and a download of an app, I was able to create this:
