    The Siren is a sweet and charming book by bestselling author Kiera Cass! The main character is a Siren named Kahlen. Being a Siren means serving the Ocean and having a voice that is deadly to human ears. But all that changes when Kahlen meets Akinli. Akinli is kind, caring, funny...and, unfortunately, human. Kahlen feigns muteness around him, but it is difficult for her to have to pretend. This is a whimsical story that conveys the message of following your heart despite your circumstances. The premise was quite similar to Cass's The Selection series, but enjoyable nevertheless. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fantasy-romance read!

    girlpower4ever's book review was featured in Prodigy (Legend).
    The realistic, thrilling story of two star-crossed lovers living amidst war. After reading the masterpiece that was Legend, I was afraid to get my hopes up for its sequel—but I worried for nothing. Prodigy is just as, if not better, than its predecessor, injected with just the right balance of action, romance, and most importantly, emotion. This time, the novel follows June and Day while they are on the run from the Republic government. It's with desperation and exhaustion that they finally decide to become part of the Patriots, a group working to assassinate the new Elector—Anden—in order to replace him with Razor, the Patriot leader. The plan is for June to pretend to betray the Patriots and go back to the Elector Anden, who expressed infatuation with her when they met in the first book; while she distracts him with a fake plan, the real assassination will take place in a few days. Day, on the other hand, is placed as a Runner who roams the streets. Yet nothing comes freely. However much June and Day have sacrificed for each other, uncertainties threaten to break their relationship, ranging from June and Anden's blossoming relationship to the fact that June indirectly caused the murder of Day's mother. The mounting suspense and danger in this novel are unbearable and chilling in the best possible way! An absolute must-read for any fan of dystopian, romance, or action.

    An astoundingly beautiful retelling of A Thousand and One Nights. In The Wrath & the Dawn, Shahrzad al-Khayzuran volunteers to marry the famously cruel boy-king, Khalid. Khalid is known for taking a new bride every day, only for the bride to be murdered at dawn. Shahrzad is no fool; she knows all this, yet she is determined to avenge her best friend, Shiva, who was one of Khalid's murdered brides. But while Khalid initially seemed like a monster, Shahrzad begins to discover the reasons behind his actions...and begins to fall in love with him. From the eloquent narration to mouthwatering food description, not to mention the fabulous characters, this is truly a breathtaking novel. I stayed up late at night just to read this, continuously telling myself to just read one more page, only to blow through several chapters at once. This will not disappoint.

    girlpower4ever's book review was featured in The Sun is also a Star.
    This book is as bright and beautiful as the stars in the night sky! The Sun is Also a Star is narrated by Daniel and Natasha, two characters with very different personalities. While Daniel is poetic and believes in the power of dreams and love, Natasha thinks scientific facts and a reliable, structured life are enough. But when they meet one fateful day in New York City, their lives are changed forever by each other. The author, Nicola Yoon, has always been great with representation in her books, and this novel doesn't disappoint: The Sun is Also a Star is racially diverse and explores unique life situations, such as Natasha being an illegal immigrant living in the United States. The main thing I disliked about the book was that, even though there were 300+ pages, the story is just one day of Daniel and Natasha's lives. And in just those 24 hours, Daniel and Natasha somehow fell in love and knew they were meant to be. The point of the book was to justify "love at first sight," but it just wasn't understandable to me and often seemed cheesy. Luckily, Yoon is a skilled enough writer for the story to not be excruciatingly slow. I was still able to enjoy the story. This is definitely a very real story about how nothing is ever predictable. I would recommend it to teen readers looking for romance and rumination!
