My Invisible Boyfriend by Susie Day

Review-This book was very interesting. It had a unique plot, following Heidi, whom creates an invisible boyfriend to please her friends. This creates all kinds of trouble in her life, and she needs to get rid of him.

   Heidi was a very likable character. She was very funny, too. Ludo is Heidi's very girly friend. Dai is one of Heidi's other friends. Then there is Fili, the emo girl who is still a good friend. Last is Ed Hartley, the sympathetic, motorcycle-riding, invisible boyfriend. The characters were all well-developed.

   There was only one annoying thing in this book:when Heidi says things like:

   All in all, it was a light and fun read!If you have some time to pick it up, you should.
You will enjoy it.

Overall-A good, light read.
Cover-LOVE IT!Heidi is so pretty!

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler

“Don’t worry, Anna. I’ll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it.”
“Promise me? Promise you won’t say anything?”
“Don’t worry.” I laughed. “It’s our secret, right?”
According to Anna’s best friend, Frankie, twenty days in Zanzibar Bay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy every day, there’s a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there’s something she hasn’t told Frankie–she’s already had her romance, and it was with Frankie’s older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago.
TWENTY BOY SUMMER explores what it truly means to love someone, what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every beautiful moment life has to offer.

My Review-
   Twenty Boy Summer is an AMAZING< OUTSTANDING< WONDERFUL book!!!!!!Words cannot describe how much I adore that book!!

     Anna is great. She is the cautious friend out of her and Frankie. She doesn't wear a lot of make-up or do anything wild. Frankie, is the exact opposite of Anna. This doesn't stop them from being best friends though. Matt, Frankie's older brother is a nice boy, older than Anna and Frankie, and its a a shame that he dies. The characters were very well-developed.

     I like the storyline, its different and nice. From cover to cover this book was so good!♥
I recommend it to everyone! If you love friendship, romance, and Zanzibar Bay, read this book!!

Cover-LOVE it. It fits the book perfectly!


The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Description-In Mary's world, there are simple truths. Now she must choose between her village and her future, between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded by so much death? 

My Review- This book was very interesting and fun to read. Although some parts were very confusing, I liked it.
 Mary is a likable character. She can be selfish, but she usually isn't. She went through a lot of things in this book and I thought that some of the other characters should have given her a break! Cass is Mary's best friend. She was nice, but she was always thinking inside of the box(or village), she did not care about another world outside of the unconsecrated. Jed, Mary's brother is okay, I personally didn't agree with some of his decisions, but whatever. Travis and Harry both love Marry. Personally, I liked Travis better, but you never know....

        The main plot was that Mary knew there was a world outside of the village, and its how she finds clues to that other world. There were many other tiny problems developing throughout the book. That made it confusing in my opinion.

     All in all,  this book is worth your time. Its only flaw is that some parts were unclear, whether Mary was dreaming it or not. Also, certain action-filled parts were hard to follow. If I were you I would still read it. It was amazing!

Overall- Great book!Loved it!Mainly, one flaw.

Cover-I love all three covers to this book!
