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…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…


Why hello there, loyal readers!

It's been a long, long time since I last wrote about a new novel - or wrote much of anything original. Life has definitely changed for me in many ways, changing how and where I devote my time.

But... whaddya know? I managed to finally finish a book!

Gardenia is a YA genre mash of murder mystery with a dash of sci-fi/fantasy, written by author Kelsey Sutton.

When Ivy's best friend died, it wasn't a surprise to her.

Because, ever since she was little, Ivy has seen the numbers over everyone's heads. Their countdown, if you will.

But she didn't know the cause of her best friend's death would be... murder.

Labled as a bit of an outcast, due to her odd behavior and reaction to Vanessa's death, Ivy finds herself more alone than ever as she is determined to find her friend's killer.

And she doesn't have much time, herself... as she's known her whole life.

Now, she realizes, it may be that she may give up her life to catch…
