The Naughty List
by Suzanne Young
Release Date: Feb 4, 2010

As if being a purrfect cheerleader isn’t enough responsibility! Tessa Crimson’s the sweet and spunky leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), a cheer squad–turned–spy society dedicated to bringing dastardly boyfriends to justice, one cheater at a time. Boyfriend-busting wouldn’t be so bad . . . except that so far, every suspect on the Naughty List has been proven 100% guilty!

When Tessa’s own boyfriend shows up on the List, she turns her sleuthing skills on him. Is Aiden just as naughty as all the rest, or will Tessa’s sneaky ways end in catastrophe?

The Naughty List. Is your boyfriend on it?

This book sounds absolutely hilarious and I can't help but want to read it... who could resist?!

Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter

Title: Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover

Author: Ally Carter


When Cammie "The Chameleon" Morgan visits her roommate Macey in Boston, she thinks she's in for an exciting end to her summer break. After all, she's there to watch Macey's father accept the nomination for vice president of the United States. But when you go to the world's best school (for spies), "exciting" and "deadly" are never far apart. Cammie and Macey soon find themselves trapped in a kidnappers' plot, with only their espionage skills to save them.

As her junior year begins, Cammie can't shake the memory of what happened in Boston, and even the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women doesn't feel like the safe haven it once did. Shocking secrets and old flames seem to lurk around every one of the mansion's corners as Cammie and her friends struggle to answer the questions, Who is after Macey? And how can the Gallagher Girls keep her safe?

Soon Cammie is joining Bex and Liz as Macey's private security team on the campaign trail. The girls must use their spy training at every turn as the stakes are raised, and Cammie gets closer and closer to the shocking truth..

Rating: 4/5


The Gallagher Girls series has always been one of my favorite series to read. It is always so interesting and unique, and always hilarious. Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover was no exception.

In this book, the girls are faced with a kidnapping threat, and it makes everyone uneasy. Cam is her usual self, breaking rules and always trying to get things done. That's my favorite thing about this book: it's fast-paced and funny. Cam and her friends are wonderful characters; for the most part they are unique and interesting and always saying or doing things that make you want to crack up.

These books are hilarious and fun; not serious, but still dealing with enough issues that they aren't all fluff. I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for something light and easy to read.

Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood
by Eileen Cook

Release Date: January 5, 2010
Popularity is the best revenge.

In the final weeks of eighth grade, Lauren Wood made a choice. She betrayed her best friend, Helen, in a manner so publicly humiliating that Helen had to move to a new town just to save face. Ditching Helen was worth it, though, because Lauren started high school as one of the It Girls--and now, at the start of her senior year, she's the cheerleading captain, the quarterback's girlfriend, and the undisputed queen bee. Lauren has everything she's ever wanted, and she has forgotten all about her ex-best friend.

But Helen could never forget Lauren. After three years of obsessing, she's moving back to her old town. She has a new name and a new look, but she hasn't dropped her old grudges. She has a detailed plan to bring down her former BFF by taking away everything that's ever been important to Lauren—starting with her boyfriend.

Watch out, Lauren Wood. Things are about to get bitchy.

Even though I wasn't entirely pleased with What Would Emma Do?, I want to explore more from Eileen Cook... and it looks like this is a good book to try out :)

Crashed and Chasing Fire

This week, I have been reading...

Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter, which was amazing. This series is fantastic.

Now I am in the middle of The President's Daughter by Ellen Emerson White. It was recommended to me by my school librarian and I like it so far.

Next: Crashed by Robin Wasserman and Chasing Fire by Suzanne Collins. So excited!

The Private Series by Kate Brian

Recently I finished Paradise Lost, and I have to say that it's really difficult to review books like this; that is, ones that are part of a very long series. The books are hard to think of as one. They all connect together and create one story.
That being said, I have to say that I love the Private series. I wish I could review each book separately, but it would be impossible. Each book has it's own perks and happenings that make them so interesting and special that I couldn't take the time to write a thoughtful and in-depth review. Also, they just aren't those kinds of books.

I'd like to say that the reason I won't review them all separate is because they are all "the same" but that would come out the wrong way. They aren't the same, but the way they are set up and written are entirely similar, and chances are that if you like the first one you will enjoy the rest of the series. At least, that's how it was in my case.

That being said, the Private series is definitely a wonderful series, especially if you're looking for something that will keep you on your seat and constantly interested.

And the Winners Are...
