P.S. I like you - Kasie West

young adult contemporary romance
what happens when you start exchanging letters with a person you don't know
when this person gets you in ways other don't
and then you find out that this person is not the one you expected?
a mostly cute and entertaining story
the plot was predictable
the identity of the mysterious letter writer wasn't a surprise
but that didn't bother me at all
I loved the beginning and middle part
loved reading about school and home life
but also enjoyed the more serious moments
the ending was not as good as the rest
something was missing to make me think wow
still a good book
that I enjoyed
and if you like cute YA romances
then this book could be great for you. 

The next YA romance by Kasie West
also sounds great
so I plan to read it.

New books: Preorders and wish list books

These are my new print books, some were preorders, others I had on my wish list(s) for some time and I finally bought them.

The books
Sleeping Giants - Sylvain Neuvel
Mysterious signs, a weird artifact made of metal and a heroine who is trying to find out what it means. Sounds interesting and it's going to be a nice change to the other books I'm reading. 

Aerie - Maria Dahvana Headly
Part 2 in the Magonia duology, Part 1 was great (first contemporary, then fantasy, special bird-like beings, singing, fights for power and more) and now I'm hoping for a great ending in this special series.  

Gemina - Kaufmann + Kristoff
Another second book in a series that started out strong, written in a lot of different text formats, set in space with all kinds of crazy things going on. 

Passenger - Alexandra Bracken
Time-travelling and mixed reviews, that's what I know so far about the story. 

Signs of you - Emily France
A group of teens who all lost someone important in their lifes. Sightings of those who died, mysteries things are going on and a bit of SciFi. Sounds great.

Holding the Dream - Nora Roberts
I love the book and finally got a pretty version with rough-cut pages of it (by Berkley).

These vicious masks - Zekas + Shanker
Jane Austen meets superpowers meets young adult. The excerpt I read of the book was great, so now I'm excited for the rest.

Wanderlost - Jen Malone
A YA romance that is supposed to be perfect for fans of books by Stephanie Perkins. Need I say more?

The Graces - Laure Eve
YA, magic and a ton of very mixed reviews, some readers loved the book, others didn't at all. I liked the excerpt I read, so I bought the book. 

Dragons, the woman who studies them, a historical setting plus a very charming writing style, of course I had to have this book.

Happy Reading!

Dealing with Dragons - Patricia C. Wrede

middle great fantasy
first in a series
an unusual, improper princess and her adventures
I was very excited about this novel
I read three YA books by the author in the past
and enjoyed them
but as soon as I sat down with 
"Dealing with Dragons"
and began to read the first sentences
I realized that something was missing to keep me interested
I read on
and everything was entertaining and charming
but it didn't touch me
it didn't manage to fascinate me
if you like charming and light-hearted fantasy books
then "Dealing with Dragons" 
could be perfect for you
younger readers might be especially fond of the story
and the special characters. 

Happy Reading!
