Have you read the sequel to #StalkingJacktheRipper yet? What did you think?
This is what our reviewer had to say about #TheSecretHistoryofUs by @jessikirby "I really enjoyed how gripping this book was. I didn‘t intend to read it in one sitting, but I found it very hard to put down....This was the first book I had read by Kirby, and I enjoyed her writing style very much...."

A release we loved from each year we've been around. http://www.teenreads.com/features/teenreadscom-20th-anniversary/teenreadscoms-20...
We're getting fall vibes from the covers of #BeTruetoMe and the Naked Heat Palette! This is what our reviewer had to say about #BeTruetoMe by @adelegriffin "BE TRUE TO ME would appeal to anyone interested in the works of Jenny Han and Jennifer E. Smith or even someone who is interested in wild summer flings amidst the groovy decade that is the '70s."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #TheGoldSon by Carrie Ann Noble "THE GOLD-SON immerse[s] you in all the tender, bumbling eagerness of young love....Noble develop[s] the Leprechaun's cavern from the obligatory villainous lair to a world rich in Leprechaun ideology, intrigue, and....vivid touches of imagination...."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #TheseThingsIveDone by @rebeccawritesya "THESE THINGS I‘VE DONE somehow went even deeper with the seemingly basic plot. By contrasting Dara‘s personality before the incident to the Dara after Aubrey‘s death, Rebecca Phillips beautifully shows the development in her characters...."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #SoldierBoy by Keely Hutton "This book can be a little tough to read sometimes....Though if you do decide to give this book a chance, it will not disappoint. The writing is beautiful, its characters are well thought out and developed, and is a really fast read."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #CrossingEbenezerCreek by @tonyabolden "I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction and would like to know more about the black involvement in Sherman‘s March to the Sea....CROSSING THE EBENEZER CREEK is a story about survival and freedom in the face of adversity."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #TheAuthentics by @abdaddy "Nazemian managed to get everything right: a gripping story, lovable characters and a greater purpose....The story was so wonderful, so poignant in a way I could never expect. Nazemian brought up controversial issues...while still keeping it real."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #LittleWrecks by Meredith Miller "LITTLE WRECKS is a unique novel in that it is almost entirely abstract....I found this book to be a hard read but I would recommend it to readers who enjoy abstract works or novels with a dramatic flair."
Need a fun read this weekend? Pick up #KissingMaxHolden by @katyupperman it is full of swoons and lots of angst! This is what our reviewer had to say about it "KISSING MAX HOLDEN...is an entertaining and thoughtful read. Katy Upperman has created a novel that is going to capture teens and get them to keep reading the whole way through her addicting blend of mystery, romance and drama."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #AllTheWaysTheWorldCanEnd by @abbysher "I recommend this book to readers who may be going through some tough life situations or want to learn the many ways the world can end....Completely crazy and a little terrifying, this book is filled with wit and lighthearted characters."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #TheWood by @chelseabobulski "THE WOOD is a story with an interesting premise that balances both action and plot with the exploration of ideas like responsibility, family and maturity....Chelsea Bobulski blended elements of fantasy...with science fiction concepts...really well."
This is what our reviewer had to say about #JuliaDefiant the sequel to last year's #JuliaVanishes by @bycatherineegan "I would recommend JULIA DEFIANT to fans of classic fantasy. With the slower pace, it can be hard for it to keep up with some of the popular series today, but [it] is definitely rewarding."
Happy #BookLoversDay! Today we're celebrating with a throwback to a book that came out in March that felt very fitting for the day!

This is what our reviewer had to say about #TrustingYouandOtherLies by @author_nicole_williams "Williams‘ authentic tone and genuine, raw characters made TRUSTING YOU & OTHER LIES a wonderful read for me.

"
This is what our reviewer had to say about #TheLeafReader by Emily Arsenault "THE LEAF READER is a short but taut novel....Arsenault‘s writing is brisk and no-nonsense.

This is what our reviewer had to say about #AnUninterruptedViewoftheSky by Melanie Crowder "AN UNINTERRUPTED VIEW OF THE SKY creates a whirlwind of emotions....Despite this, I was not disheartened while reading, all because of [Crowder's] realistic, yet strong and fierce characters."

This is what our reviewer had to say about #GenerationOne by #PitticusLore "GENERATION ONE will take you on an adventure through Taylor and Kopano‘s eyes as they break out of their comfort zones and escape from their regular lives.
