What do you review?

I review young adult books. I do not review self-published books. You know who you are. Don't send hate mail. Its just a personal thing. When I was little, it was my birthday and somebody shut down Disney World just so all the Self-Published book could frolick. And I just...I just...I'm in therapy for this, okay?

I also review books for readers in the 20-30 year age bracket. Books about some health related issues I'll throw in the pile. I even enjoy some how-to books. I like to learn how-to do things. I'm a handy kind of gal.

We had Madonna, we had Lady Gaga and the only gal left to fill our pop Glee-va (glee diva) needs was the one and only Britney Spears. Last night the Glee gods answered our prayers with perhaps the most anticipated episode of the show…ever. Did it live up to the hype? Let’s take a look, shall we?

At some point earlier this year, in response to my medical crisis I started blaming my pillows.

Yes. Pillows.

It was so obvious. they were the reason I was so sick. They probably were full of toxins, and feathers with avian flu, and dust, and dust mites. My pillows were killing me. They had to go. Immediately.

Readers of Becca Fitzpatrick’s debut novel are unlikely to remain Hush,Hush about the next big thing in young adult lit. Setting the new standards for heavenly hunks is Patch, a fallen angel whose only desire is to become human. While on earth he takes an interest in fellow classmate, Norah Grey. Since they met, Norah finds herself the victim of several near-death encounters. Although she finds Patch’s bad boy antics anything but charming, he always seems to be around to save the day . When at last Norah finds herself succumbing to his peculiar come-ons, she starts to wonder what exactly he’s pursuing her for.

I’ve got no doubts that Hush, Hush will leave readers with the same jealousy over Norah Gray as they did over Bella Swan. Expect many high school girls to be despondent and uninterested in anything but the book in their hands as Hush, Hush mania explodes.

Boys? Start pulling out the leather jackets and tattooing on those angel wings!
