Intensely Alice by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

“In one single instant, everything can change….
Wouldn’t it be great to go back to the time before Pamela got pregnant, before Patrick left for the University of Chicago, before anyone was making any big decisions about sex or college or life in general? Wouldn’t it be great to get the whole gang together again, just once? But what it takes for this to happen will change Alice (and the whole gang) forever.
Full of life — the good, the bad, and the heartbreaking”

Intensely Alice is the 23rd book in the Alice series(if you count the 3 prequels) is wasn’t my favorite in the series, but it was still good though.
It starts out with the start of summer and goes through the whole summer from work to visiting Patrick at collage to having something horrible happen to the gang and to her outlook on life were you can’t take everything for granted and you never know how long you’ll have someone in your life.
The whole book was happy,sad,exciting,shocking,crying,laugh out loud moments,and in the end of it i personally feel like i have grown up a bit.

the only thing i dont like is that Phyllis Reynolds Naylor wont have the next Alice book out till next year… 😦

I borrowed this book from my local library 🙂

Sweet Seasons(Candy) Series by Debbie Viguie




“Most people think The Zone is an amusement park, but Candy Thompson knows it’s really a slave labor camp. What else would you call a summer job that requires a sixteen-year-old girl to set aside her whole social life for the privilege of standing out in the hot sun selling cotton candy? Still, there are perks – particularly the mysterious hunk in the Lone Ranger costume. Behind that mask are the most amazing eyes Candy has ever seen. Who is that masked man? But someone else is just as interested. And romantic competition isn’t the only problem. Besides being hard work, The Zone is eating up major time. How is Candy supposed to stay involved in church? Worse yet, will she lose her best friend, Tamara, who resents how Candy’s job limits their time together? This is NOT the summer Candy hoped for! But as she is about to discover, the summer of cotton candy will be the greatest summer of her life.”

wow.At first when i saw these books at the library i didn’t think they would be good at all and was i wrong.I basically starting reading the first book on Wednesday and finished all the rest of the 4 books on Friday.
It was really good at captivating for getting hooked reading them.even though most of the book takes place at the zone,there is a really good base of a book in each of them to where fall of the candy corn has a bit mystery and almost all the books have some romance(oh la la)but not the over done romance.
what was really interesting getting into reading them was that it was of a christian teen which i didn’t know when i first started reading them but her walk to me seemed to be growing strong though out the series.(which is cool because now i found another christian YA publisher).so yup thats about it.all i can say is

I WANT CANDY! 😛 (but really i hope there will be more than 4 books in this series)

This Book Isn’t Fat, It’s Fabulous by Nina Beck

“Manhattan It Girl Riley Swain is no pudgy wallflower. She’s brash, bold, fashionable, and yes, fabulous. Riley has no qualms about kissing her best friend’s crush, or bribing her dad’s lawyer. But this spring break, Riley’s dad and wicked stepmother are shipping her off to New Horizons, a two-week fat camp in upstate New York. And it’s miserable: like military school without carbs. But then Riley gets to know adorable Eric, who sees beyond Riley’s tough exterior. Soon, Riley might just realize that maybe it’s not her shape that will change at New Horizons. . . but her heart.”

This Book Isn’t Fat, It’s Fabulous is a book i did end up finish reading it but its probably something i wont reread.it was a very light/cute/girly read but it was missing something.I dont know what but it was missing something.I think thats all i can say about it.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen


“It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.
A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.”

Along for the Ride is about Auden West–who is an insomniac–and starts when she decides to spend the summer with her dad,stepmother Heidi, and her new Thisbe. Having grown up studying all the time when she goes to Colby she is basically clueless with how girls act and all.During the summer she changes in ways she thought she would never change from learning to ride a bike and falling in love.
This book was basically amazing.the only thing i didn’t like was where in the writing it would switch a lot in a chapter to what was going on at that moment to skipping back to what had gone on earlier that day.
But overall amazing.Sarah Dessen has yet to disappoint me. 🙂
