Writing YA Book Reviews from a YA Point of View
Lia flees on her wedding day with a bundle of stolen documents and her maid. She doesn’t want to have any part in the arranged marriage she’s forced into and throws duty aside in favor of her freedom. But Lia never really thought of the consequences that would surely follow her shunning of an arranged marriage with a possible political ally and she’s going to have to man up and figure out how to fix the mess she’s created. Runaway princesses, assassins, princes and a war that’s just waiting to happen.

Never in Natalie Jamison’s wildest dreams did she ever imagine she’d be going back to the tiny town she grew up in. And just when she thought she left high school behind, it seems that her old clique is still in town, and one of them in particular, is just as awful as she was back in the day. Jack Moreland, however, is on his way to the stars. But his heart? Just as shattered as Natalie left it. When a chance meeting reunites the two old flames, Natalie must decide whether she’ll let other people’s opinions trump her own feelings.

Amy&#8217;s spent her whole life stuck in a trailer with her alcoholic mom, stuck in a school where she gets teased all the time and where everyone is against her. She just wants to leave it all behind her. Little does she know that her yearnings would all by answered in the form of a tornado that sweeps through town, lifts her trailer up and dumps her in the middle of nowhere where she&#8217;s faced with an odd, crumbling yellow brick road.

Nails inspired by Danielle Paige’s Dorothy Must Die.

Bear with me as I figure out how to take decent nail art/book shots. I rely on sunlight a lot. I initially thought I’d add in a gingham pattern but I figured it would detract from the sass of the back and red. As usual, freehand designs in acrylic. This book is a wonderful retelling of a darker, more twisted Oz. Give it a go!

Nail polish used:
MAC Flaming Rose
Nails Inc Covent Garden Market
Orly Liquid Vinyl

Nails inspired by Alex London’s Proxy.

So I decided to do a really easy bookish manicure that doesn’t require any fancy nail art tools. Just nail polish and a slightly steady hand. These look glorious under the sunlight btw.

Anyway, in regards with the poster, for PH residents Alex London is coming Aug 30 for a book signing. Hope to see you all there!

Nail polish used:
OPI Push and Shove
MAC Flaming Rose

Jemma Cafferty didn&#8217;t always hate Ryder Marsden. In fact, she was kind of crushing on him back in eighth grade&#8230; Only he kind of unknowingly crushed her heart. Which in turn, crushed the dreams of the two closer families of ever being united by marriage. Now seventeen and on the brink of their high school graduation, Jemma and Ryder are more than ready to bid adieu, farewell to everyone&#8217;s expectations of them ever getting together. But like the storm that batters Magnolia Branch, there seems to be some other stronger force to be reckoned with&#8230;

Jemma Cafferty didn’t always hate Ryder Marsden. In fact, she was kind of crushing on him back in eighth grade… Only he kind of unknowingly crushed her heart. Which in turn, crushed the dreams of the two closer families of ever being united by marriage. Now seventeen and on the brink of their high school graduation, Jemma and Ryder are more than ready to bid adieu, farewell to everyone’s expectations of them ever getting together.
