Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare is a YA contemporary suspense novel by Jacqueline Green.

When Tenley Reed returns to her hometown, she brings her age-old game of truth or dare with her.

It’s a way, along with her fabulous parties, to reclaim her popularity after being gone so long.

For Caitlin “Angel” Thomas, it’s a chance to reunite with her best friend and forget about her Harvard plans for a while.

Sydney Morgan didn’t even go to the party, consumed of thoughts of her kind-of-boyfriend being back in town – and never interested in that scene anyway.

All three, however, begin to receive mysterious, anonymous dares once the party is over…

Dares that involve very real threats.

Tenley, Caitlin, and Sydney all have secrets – how far will they go to keep them that way?

Truth or Dare was exactly what I would hope it would be!

Quickly, it presented hints of mystery, which I very much liked. The setting of Echo Bay is haunted by a past of drowning victims come Fall Festival time, at least one of which was later deemed a murder. So, there’s already that well-done atmospheric tone setting a creepy vibe.

It has a character driven plot – focused on these three girls, each of which I empathized and liked in different ways. I really liked that in Truth or Dare the girls really aren’t backstabbing but are instead the targets of manipulation.

Truth or Dare would probably be a great read for a fan of the Pretty Little Liars series, which it reminded me of a little – though I only read the first one in that series, and I actually liked Truth or Dare better.

As the suspense escalated, I was truly addicted to the page – especially as twists and shocks wowed me.

The ending kind of floored me, didn’t expect that to happen AT ALL.

And, well, I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!!!

Check out Truth or Dare!

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:
