You are used to reading about women dating/marrying vampires and werewolves, what about someone who promises herself to never marry anyone who isn’t fully human. On a job to investigate leprechaun, she meets someone who she can potentially fall in love with. But this person is a fae. Will she fall in love with this person? Will she change her mind about inter species dating?

Everyone who is interested in the twilight series or interested in reading about ʺINTER SPECIESʺ dating, you might be interested in this book. It’s an interesting twist on love and it’s fun.

This funny spoof on sci-fi novels is one of the most classic humorous books ever written. Arthur Dent is a very normal man living in England, until one day his house is slated for demolition in order to build a highway bypass. Will Earth suffer a similar fate? Arthur travels throughout the whole galaxy on a quest to discover the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Anyone with a good sense of humor will like this book, although it is probably better suited towards 8th graders and older. Definitely not intended for children, but accessible and enjoyable to teens nonetheless.

Kenna’s life change the moment Rhys came to her school. Being taken away, imprisoned, and stripped from her normal life, Kenna encounter many obstacles and hardship.

Everyone should read this book, the beginning is similar to Twilight but the story itself is not. It’s a great read and I really recommend it.

Book 2 of 2

Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy’s deadly rules and brutal gangs. He thought that the worst was over. But now Benson is trapped in a different kind of prison—a town filled with familiar faces. Classmates from Maxfield who Benson had seen die. Friends he was afraid he had killed.

They are all pawns in the school’s twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. And while Benson struggles to figure out who, if anyone, can be trusted, he discovers that Maxfield Academy’s plans are darker than anything he imagined—and they may be impossible to stop.

Students who like sci-fi and dystopian novels will enjoy Feedback (definitely read Variant first!). It’s definitely action-packed, and will keep you guessing– with a little romance thrown in too.
