Great Review for House of Wacks

Bassetbarb at Night Owl Reviews loved Denise Gwen's House of Wacks! (Of course!) Here's what she had to say:

I loved House of Wacks. Denise Gwen gives us a behind the scenes look at a movie set and a peek into a sixteen-year-old girl’s mind. Both ring with the peal of believability. Jordan does soul-searching and doesn’t care much for what she discovers about herself and her friends.

I’m not saying anymore, because I don’t want to give away the ending, but buy this book. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks, Bassetbarb! We love Denise's book too :)

R U Ready 4 Back2School?

It's getting close.

Are you ready?

School's about to begin again. Ugg. I know I'm not ready. I work at a college library, and I'm SOOOO going to miss my sweet parking spot once students return. Oh well, I guess they're what pay my salary, so I'll shut up about that.

Anyway, to get yourself back into the school-attending spirit, here are a couple books I recommend you read.

Confessions of a Teenage Psychic by Pamela Woods-Jackson

When Mike Kissed Emma by Christine Marciniak

Krysta's Curse by Tara West

A Girl, A Guy, And A Ghost by Sherrie Kelley

Poor Me by (team) Dara Edmondson & Raina Edmondson

Seek Ye First My Heart [The Russell Family 3] by Kimberlee R. Mendoza

So, there are just a few awesome titles to get you jazzed and geared up for that dreaded S-word. Happy reading!

Oh, before I go, I have an announcement. Here's some BIG news for our climbing roses authors: FOUR of us are participating in EPIC's eBooks Awards Contest. So, keep your fingers cross. Though personally, I think us roses are just going to clean house in the young adult category (not that I'm biased!).

A Great Review for When Mike Kissed Emma

When Mike Kissed Emma has been out for almost a year now, but I still stumble upon reviews. Today this one at Novel Reactions really made my day.

My favorite line is: "I loved reading this book and never wanted to put it down!"

Now, that's a great endorsement!

Head on over to Novel Reactions to read the whole review!

Heartfelt Review for The Stillburrow Crush

Thanks to Kai of Amaterasu Reads for a fabulous review of The Stillburrow Crush by Linda Kage! The review contains some spoilers but I loved what she had to say about Linda's fabulous book:

I think of this book as my luckiest find for the year. No other book has topped it in my list
This was a novel with depth. It's an amazing story about a sassy, smart, and honest girl. Carrie is no damsel in distress who bats her eyelashes just to get the guy she wants. She's a strong, determined young lady who, like everyone else, has a lot of insecurities to deal with.

Thanks again, Kai, we're pretty crazy about Stillburrow too!
