When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles.

Trapped in the twelfth century in the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Along the way, her path collides with that of a mysterious boy who could be vital to her mission . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing.      Addictive, romantic, and rich with historical detail, Into the Dim is an Outlander for teens.

Three Reasons to Read Joyride By Anna Banks (Review + Giveaway!)

Title: Joyride
Author: Anna Banks
Length: 288 pages
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Classification: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Release Date: June 2, 2015
Source: Hardback 
Read: February 2016
A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.
It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.
Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.
All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

February 2016 Highlights

Well, I was really busy this month. I was sick for a couple of weeks. Which resulted in me not reading as much as I wanted and not posting nearly as much as I planned to. March is going to be an extremely busy month for me for many reasons, so I probably won't read that much then either. (I do have a lot of post I plan to write for March!) Hopefully I will have the chance to catch up on the reading and blogging stuff in April that I miss in March.
