Recently we’ve enjoyed seeing other book bloggers participate in the birthstone book covers every month. Seeing those posts made us wonder if there was a birthstone book tag out there. Well, we found it!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As we get ready for one of the most exciting holidays, we thought it would be fun to post something in anticipation. We found this tag on The Sassy Geek and that knew we wanted to participate. Feel free to participate too. We’d love to read your answers.
Halloween season is the best time of year to bring out your favorite mystery, thriller or horror books. Sitting under a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate, tea or coffee and reading by candlelight on a chilly night is the perfect way to spend an October night. We have some recommendations for our readers, both old and new YA books, to make this month one full of fright. keep reading…if you’re brave enough.
In need of a YA series to binge? We have some awesome recommendations for series to read through immediately. Whether you want something cute and fluffy for summer, or a dark thriller for autumn, we have something for everyone.
1. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
Pretty Little Liars became a cult classic when the TV show released in 2010. But, we think the books are much better. Three years after Alison DeLaurentis disappears, former friends Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily start receiving mysterious text messages from someone named A. Pretty Little Liars is a perfect binge series because there are 16 books and two companion novels. Just get ready, the YA series is full of thrills and is even darker than the show.
Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate this time of year, we decided to reread one of our favorite series about witches: The Secret Circle by L.J. Smith. We read the original trilogy: The Initiation, The Captive and The Power. While we love the other three books: The Divide, The Hunt and The Temptation, they were actually written later by ghost writer Aubrey Clark. We decided to stick with the original books to get us into the Halloween spirit.
We’re starting a new series on the blog where we share our unpopular YA book opinions. For this one, we’re sharing our opinions about ships we loved, but the couple didn’t end up together or ships we think are overrated.
Let us know your unpopular YA romance opinions in the comments!

1. If you liked The Hunger Games, read The Testing
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau is an underrated YA series, and is basically a more intellectual version of The Hunger Games. Cia and three other students in her region get chosen to compete for spots at University. In this dystopian future United States, a massive world war left most of the world in shambles. Only the brightest can help bring back the country.
Cia believes that if she doesn’t pass her tests, then she’ll go back to her normal life. However, once students start disappearing, she realizes the price for failure is a lot higher than she ever imagined.
