Unspoken

Unspoken is a YA fantasy/paranormal novel, and the first in The Lynburn Legacy, by Sarah Rees Brennan.

Since Kami Glass was born she has spoken, in her head, to a boy she’s never met. Over the years she’s known to keep it quieter, though she doesn’t hide it. Because of this, Kami has become a bit of an outsider in her small English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale.

But the thing is… he loves him. And the worry as to whether it’s all an “imaginary friend” doesn’t bother her all that much.

In the meantime, she has a best friend, runs a school newspaper, and is flexing her investigational skills in looking into the mysterious Lynburn family that townspeople seem to both revere and revile.

When the Lynburn family return to Sorry-in-the-Vale after having left it before Kami was born, Kami sees an opportunity to break the best story ever. Disturbing things start happening, though. Screeches in the woods. Her own mother dodging her questions. Blood.

And when Kami meets the two teenage Lynburn cousins Jared and Ash she finds that she may know one of them.

Very well.

Everything is changing…

First off, I absolutely loved Unspoken.

That’s why I can’t help but be sparse on my synopsis – every little thing was voluminous to me, and I don’t want to spoil it for you!!!

Unspoken has such a marvelously singular plot! I loved the twist from the get-go, the emotional connection Kami has to her “imaginary friend”, the mystery and the creepiness! Loved, loved, loved!!!

Sarah Rees Brennan penned Kami as hilarious, quick-witted, self-sufficient, confident, and AWESOME! An excellent, excellent character – and just so very different! Really refreshing.

In fact, the whole cast of characters sparkle with vibrant, memorable personalities. Each one stands on their own, which can be rare to find in books – but so very wonderful when it is!

The fact that I felt connected and invested to these people, that they felt real, made Unspoken all the better! After all, I care – so the terrible, scary, sad, funny scenes mean all the more!

Plus, we get to experience a spooky yet comfy English town full of rumors, paranormal developments, and enigma! I loved it!

Hmm, how many times have I used the word “loved”? Yeah, I’m aware of it. I can’t help it!

Unspoken is a fantastic book! It’s heartbreaking, suspenseful, and beautifully unique – and I am absolutely DYING for the second book!!!

I hope that every single one of you lovely bibliophiles that hasn’t read Unspoken yet does RIGHT NOW and gets this book the attention it deserves before book two is released!

What do you think? Up to the challenge?

It’s an awesome one!

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.

Again.

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:
