Bad Hair Day

Bad Hair Day is a YA comedic horror novel, and a follow-up to Bad Taste in Boys, by Carrie Harris.

Reading Bad Taste in Boys first is not a prerequisite here, yet I’d still recommend it. You can check out my review here.

Future Doctor of America Kate Grable is thrilled to geek-pieces to be shadowing the county medical examiner as part of her school’s premed program.

But of course nothing can go smoothly in Kate’s life, right?

Nope. Curing a zombie virus wasn’t enough, apparently.

When the county medical examiner she’s following gets arrested for a gruesome murder where the victim was literally torn apart, well, she just has to investigate.

As more bodies start to pile up, Kate finds she’s searching for a murderer that is big, hairy and possibly has claws.

That’s right. She’s chasing a werewolf.

Her logical brain, however, refuses to believe that. Zombies are one thing, but werewolves?

Evidence continues to build though, as Kate also deals with flying encyclopedia’s, a costume-wearing brother, an irritated best friend, and a boyfriend who she fears she may have ignored (accidentally) a little too long.

She couldn’t just have a quiet day of regular ol’ autopsies, could she?

Bad Taste in Boys was a hilarious, fresh take on zombies with a nerdy, intelligent, awesome heroine in doctor-in-training Kate Grable. I’m elated we get to follow her again as she lands another weird medical mystery!

Mixing absurd humor, including boundless witty dialogue, with a new take on werewolves, Carrie Harris is again treating us to some good old fashioned FUN in Bad Hair Day.

Secondary characters bursting with personality, a sometimes gory plot in the most light-hearted way, and a first-person voice to salivate over, I’m in book-love with Kate Grable and hope for many, many more books featuring this character!!!

It’s a fast, entertaining read meant to be enjoyed with a smile on your face. Mission accomplished!

*Note to my lovely Bibliophile Support Group fans, I'm starting a new job today! It's an exciting, great opportunity for my family and I but it could also mean changes to the blog's schedule IF my reading time is cut shorter because of it. I ask you all to understand this and take it into consideration if my posts get scaled back. But for now, everything is full steam ahead! Thanks for reading!!!

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:
