-----------------------------------------------

Like Mermaids? "Surfacing" by Shana Norris
Mara Westray has just lost her mother, and being shipped off to live with the father she doesn't know is not how she imagined grieving. But from the moment she steps off the ferry, nothing is as ordinary as it looks. As she tries to unravel the events that led to her mom fleeing the island sixteen years ago, Mara finds that the biggest secret of all is only the beginning.

Like Mysteries? "Codename: Dancer" by Amanda Brice
Bombs, poisoning, arson… Will aspiring ballerina Dani Spevak’s 15 minutes of fame on the hit TV show Teen Celebrity Dance-Off be over before she reaches age 15? Dani and her friends are suddenly at the center of some serious sabotage. And if she doesn’t find out who is behind it, her next pirouette could be her last.

Like Angels? "Winging It!" by Shel Delisle
Angel in Training Grace Lightbourne wants to earn her wings fast, so she skips school in Heaven, heading straight to Earth on a Mission as an apprentice Guardian Angel. But, she'd better watch out -- she's flying by the seat of her pants.

Like Time Travel? "Like Clockwork" by Elle Strauss
When Adeline travels back in time to 1955's Hollywood, she meets a James Dean-esque type hottie.
But can bad boys from the past be trusted?

Like Witches? "Stirring Up Trouble" by Juli Alexander
Zoe Miller is a 15-year-old witch with a talent for potions. Then there's all the so-called normal stuff. Like high school, her annoyingly selfish "friend" Anya, and her crush on Anya's ex-boyfriend Jake. Now, Zoe's dad is dating Jake's mom, and things are getting more and more complicated. Zoe's tired of fate interfering so cruelly in her life. Can you really blame her for putting her potions to not-so-good use and stirring up trouble?

Like Sweet Entertainment? "Confessions of a 16-Year-Old Virgin Lips" by Cindy M. Hogan
VL. Virgin Lips. You may not have heard of it, but where I live, it's a thing with a card, even if it is a figurative card. Maybe that's a bit strange. I mean, what teenage girl isn't interested in kissing? Locking lips definitely interested me, but the drama that came with it didn't. No kissing, no drama. Simple.

Like Fairy Tales? "The Curse Girl" by Kate Avery Ellison
When Bee is imprisoned in a magical, cursed house because of her father's selfish choices, she has just one plan ... escape! But she must solve a riddle and help her fellow prisoners break the curse that binds them all before she can leave, and that is proving more difficult than she originally thought thanks to the bitter young master of the house, Will.
Will wants nothing to do with Bee or her help (and he certainly isn't planning on falling in love with her), but he might have underestimated just how determined and clever – and irresistible – she can be.

Like Cute Crushes? "Chasing Puberty" by Kat Brookes
Puberty has left high school freshman Logan Stanley behind. Join her on her journey as she discovers that being a true 'It' girl is only a state of mind -- you just have to believe!



"Surfacing" [Swans Landing Series, Book 1] by Shana Norris

Author's Story Description : Sixteen-year-old Mara Westray has just lost her mother, and now, being shipped off to live with the father she doesn’t know is not how she imagined grieving. She’s already counting down the days until she turns eighteen and can leave the tiny island of Swans Landing.

But from the moment she steps off the ferry, nothing is as ordinary as it looks. Whispers of a haunting song on the wind make her see impossible things, and she isn’t sure she can trust her judgment about what is real and what isn’t anymore. Maybe she can’t even trust her judgment about quiet Josh Canavan, whose way of speaking in riddles and half-truths only confuses her more, luring her deeper into the secrets hidden beneath the ocean’s surface.

As she tries to unravel the events that led to her mom fleeing the island sixteen years ago, Mara finds that the biggest secret of all is only the beginning.

My Story Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! After being away from the small island of Swans Landing for around 12 years, Mara returns to live with her father (a man she never knew). Feeling lost and alone, Mara finds herself drawn to Josh. Josh is a teen who keeps to himself and compels her at every turn. However Swans Landing is an island FULL of secrets and once Mara finally understands what those secrets are will she be willing to stick around the island or will she “run” away as far as she can…

This is an intriguing and mysterious YA romance novel. It kept me guessing most of the way through while wishing for a good HEA to wrap it all up. What I got was... [READ MY FULL REVIEW, TWO TEASERS, BOOK PREVIEW & MORE]

"Winging It!: Confessions of an Angel in Training" [Confessions of an Angel-In-Training Series, Book 1] by Shel Delisle

Author's Story Description : Fourteen-year-old Angel in Training Grace Lightbourne isn’t a great student, but thinks she has come up with the perfect way to avoid studying. She’ll ask the Big Kahuna to go straight to Earth, skipping her last three years of school, so she can train as an apprentice Guardian. It would seem to be an inspired idea, but in the second before there’s no turning back she thinks, I musta been totally mental when I came up with this? And, then, Oh, well, here goes.

She has no clue what she’s in for when He agrees. Archangel Michael isn’t happy about her special mission. There’s one pesky full angel who keeps getting in her way. And then there’s Victor, who has teenage temptation written all over him. Still, Grace is convinced she’s on a fast track to her wings. Because, seriously, how hard can it be to be a Guardian Angel? She’s working with humans, right?

"Winging It!" is the first book in the Angel in Training series, an irreverent and light-hearted take on Angels, Heaven and everything else that’s divine.

"Like Clockwork" [The Clockwise Series, Book 3] by Elle Strauss

Author's Story Description : Hollywood Hottie!

Adeline doesn't feel she belongs in her own time, but can bad boys from the past be trusted?


Adeline Savoy had hoped that the move west from Cambridge to Hollywood with her single dad would mean they'd finally bond like a real family, but all she got was a father too busy with his new female friends and his passion for acting to really see her.

Instead she finds herself getting attached to Faye, the divorcee hair dresser she befriends when she travels back in time to 1955. Plus Faye has a hottie, James Dean-esque, bad-boy brother who has Adeline's heart all aflutter. But bad boys from the past can be dangerous.

Is it possible that Adeline really does belong in her own time and that maybe the right boy lives as close as next door?

"Stirring Up Trouble" [Stirring Up Trouble Trilogy, Book 1] by Juli Alexander

Author's Story Description : Zoe Miller is a 15-year-old witch with a talent for potions. She's working hard to find a substitute for toad slime. Since fat-free margarine has been found to be a substitute for dead man's toe, she's hopeful that she'll find one.

Then there's all the so-called normal stuff. Like high school, her annoyingly selfish "friend" Anya, and her crush on Anya's ex-boyfriend Jake.

Now, Zoe's dad is dating Jake's mom, and things are getting more and more complicated. If only Zoe could brew a potion or two and set everything straight. Zoe can't. If she brews a self-serving potion, bad things will happen to her appearance. Like a crooked nose, giant wart, green skin, rotting teeth--the whole ugly witch stereotype.

Zoe's tired of fate interfering so cruelly in her life. Can you really blame her for putting her potions to not-so-good use and stirring up trouble?

"First Kiss" [Confessions of a 16-Year-Old Virgin Lips Series, Book 1] & [Sweet N' Sour Kisses Series, Book 1] by Cindy M. Hogan

Author's Story Description : VL. Virgin Lips. You may not have heard of it, but where I live, it's a thing with a card, even if it is a figurative card. I was Brooklyn Hamlin, certified virgin lips, and I planned on clinging to that figurative card with all I had--while dating as many of the hottest guys at school as I could.

Maybe that's a bit strange. I mean, what teenage girl isn't interested in kissing? Locking lips definitely interested me, but the drama that came with it didn't. No kissing, no drama. Simple.

But on my sixteenth birthday, on my first real date even, the drama found me. His name was Luke Graham--cute, funny, and bad news for the whole female race.

"Chasing Puberty" by Kat Brookes

Author's Story Description : Growing up is never easy, but what’s a girl to do when she’s starting her freshman year of high school and puberty’s left her behind? She stuffs her bra, of course!

Fourteen-year-old Logan Stanley never thought she’d be entering high school with the body of a middle schooler. Not when all her friends have real curves. How is she ever going to catch the eye of eleventh grader Brad Johnson, Middleburg High School’s star quarterback, and her forever crush, looking the way she does?

If she has any hope of at all of getting Brad’s attention, Logan knows she’ll have to become an ‘It’ girl. The kind of girl everyone wants to be friends with and all the guys drool over. Like her older sister, Nicole.

Unfortunately for Logan, the climb up the social status ladder is a lot further up than she’d imagined. Everything seems to be going wrong, including her older sister, Nicole, stealing her boyfriend. At least, the guy she’d hoped would be her first real boyfriend. But Logan isn’t giving Brad up to her sister without a fight.
She proves to Nicole that she can fight every bit as dirty as her sister when it comes to getting what she wants. But is having Brad as a boyfriend really what she wants? Or is there someone better?

Join Logan on her journey as she discovers that life doesn’t always go as planned. And that being a true ‘It’ girl is only a state of mind. You just have to believe!
