Teens Suggest Reading…Part 2

on October 17, 2012


Teen Read Week
October 14-20

Welcome to Day 2 of “What should I read?”, book reviews for and by teens! One of the goals of Teen Read Week is to encourage teens to read for fun. See what others have read and recommend…maybe you’ll find your next book!

And don’t forget, there is still time to sign up for the Teen Read Week Read-A-Thon on Saturday, October 20 from 1:00-4:30 p.m. at the Peace Dale Library!

Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters by Natalie Standiford
This book was mysterious, edgy, and funny all at the same time! There were three different sections, with three different sisters. And let me tell you how different they were!
Sassy is sweet and stubborn. Norrie is smart and confined in herself. Jane is rebellious and funny.
I liked the change of characters-it kept the story interesting. I would definitely recommend this to anyone because it had a little bit of everything-mystery, romance (more of a fling), comedy, and more! Anyone would like it! I tried to savor every bit of this book, but even so, I flew through it. It’s a great read.

Strings Attached by Judy Blundell
Murder, mystery, malice; “Strings Attached” by Judy Blundell has it all. This suspenseful mystery novel, one of the Rhode Island Teen Book Award nominees for 2013, kept me hooked from beginning to end as I followed the story of Kit. Kit is a native Rhode Islander who runs off to the bright lights and sparkling cities of New York City. She escapes her abusive boyfriend Billy, an alcoholic father and her two siblings, hoping to make a change for the better. Little does Kit know that Nate, Billy’s lawyer father lurks in New York City, and carries with him a secretive past and mafia ties. When Nate offers Kat an apartment, and later a job, she realizes that some promises come with strings attached.
This book was by far my favorite of the Rhode Island Teen Book Award nominations for 2013 so far. Despite a slow start (I was tempted to skip some of the earlier chapters), “Strings Attached” picked up just in time for a dramatic ending. I would highly recommend this book to female fans of both the mystery and historical fiction genres. All in all “Strings Attached” is a great book, and if you’re like me, you won’t be able to put it down until the action-packed ending.

Forgotten by Cat Patrick
London Lane forgets everything from the day before. She doesn’t even remember her boyfriend of six months! She remembers the future instead of the past and has shocking flash-forwards about her father and someone else (I CAN’T TELL YOU WHO THOUGH!) She knows how things will end so she tries to avoid them.
I would definitely recommend this book to pretty much anyone. It was shocking, interesting, and romantic. It’s a great book and it gets better and better as the story goes on. I might even say this is my new favorite book. All I an say is read it! You will love it!
