Bad Luck Girl

Bad Luck Girl is the third novel in the YA historical fantasy American Fairy Trilogy by Sarah Zettel.

To get the full impact of the story, and not spoil the fun, you’ll want to make sure and read the trilogy in order. The first book is Dust Girl and the second is Golden Girl – click on the titles to read my reviews.

I trust only those who have read the first two books are continuing to read…

Callie LeRoux, half human and half fairy, finally has her family together.

Having rescued her mother and father, who she’s never met until now and who is a prince of the Unseelie court, from their enemies – things should be peaceful and happy now, right?

Not at all.

Now she, her family and her best friend Jack must run for their lives.

The war between the Midnight Throne and the Sunlit Kingdoms is brewing and reaching an apex – and Callie, and the prophecy she embodies, is at the center of it. She is more pursued than ever – and all of those around her are in jeopardy.

Despite the prophecy, Callie doubts that she save anyone.

After all, her nickname among the fairies is Bad Luck Girl.

That’s proven true so far…

The American Fairy Trilogy has been an terrific read – taking an awesome perspective of Depression-era America in 1935 and spanning across the Dust Bowl to Hollywood and now to Chicago. Mixing just the right amount of historical detail with a fresh fairy fantasy plot creates an original, enjoyable, very readable story!!!

Bad Luck Girl
keeps up that trend!

It’s suspenseful and nerve-wracking with a sense of real danger. One of my favorite things about this trilogy is how disturbing the fairies can be – and the various other fantasy creatures involved – and the psychological impact or their influence. It can be quite chilling!

Bad Luck Girl made me smile, made me sad, made me scared – it kept me invested in this excellently drawn cast of characters and this overarching plot.

Sarah Zettel has created a unique, fully-realized fantasy realm and imagined distinctive beings to populate it. These books offer one of the more fleshed-out, better written fairy stories, for sure!

I felt that Bad Luck Girl was a great finale, making the American Fairy Trilogy a wonderful one and making me ready to keep an eye out for more Sarah Zettel!!!

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:
