Digging Through the Stacks: January 15th – January 21st

Hey, what’s this? A new feature? Yep. This is just some of the highlights I’ve encountered while digging through my Google reader feed, YouTube, Goodreads, and Twitter.

Reviews Worth Reading

Convincing, entertaining, well-written or all of the above, these reviews are worth your time.

I Am A Reader, Not A WriterDie for Me by Amy Plum – I had this one sitting on my shelf for a while, but after reading this review, I wanted to bump it up the TBR pile.

White Cat by Holly Black – I’ve already read this one, but I found Misty’s review to be so entertaining. Misty was able to deliver her review of White Cat in 90 seconds! Impressive.

The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe – How did this book escape my radar? Harmony made it sound so interesting that I definitely kept my eye out for other reviews of this one!

What caught my eye on GoodReads and was added to the pile.

Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin

Kelsey Finkelstein is fourteen and FRUSTRATED. Every time she tries to live up to her awesome potential, her plans are foiled – by her impossible parents, her annoying little sister, and life in general. But with her first day of high school coming up, Kelsey is positive that things are going to change. Enlisting the help of her three best friends — sweet and quiet Em, theatrical Cass, and wild JoJo — Kelsey gets ready to rebrand herself and make the kind of mark she knows is her destiny.

Things start out great – her arch-nemesis has moved across the country, giving Kelsey the perfect opportunity to stand out on the soccer team and finally catch the eye of her long-time crush. But soon enough, an evil junior’s thirst for revenge, a mysterious photographer, and a series of other catastrophes make it clear that just because KELSEY has a plan for greatness… it doesn’t mean the rest of the world is in on it.

Kelsey’s hilarious commentary throughout her disastrous freshman year will have you laughing out loud—while being thankful that you’re not in her shoes, of course…

Terrific Trailers

This trailer convinced me to add the book to my TBR pile!

This doesn’t sound like my typical contemporary read, but the trailer is so cute. Catchy song, cute boy, how much more convincing can a book trailer get?
