She brings up a lot of good points (she also does randoms thoughts) as to why people hate Twilight, and other awesome reviews. She only has a few reviews at the moment, but they are all thorough and funny. She definitely has a sense of humor, but also gives you as much info on the book as she can! Definitely going to read the books she had reviewed!! Hope you are reading this, Cassidy!! :) I hope you do more posts more often!! See you guys later, and please check out her YouTube videos!! :)
Here is the link again, if you are too blind to notice it a few lines above:

Vanished by Meg Cabot - Amazingly Rereadable

  
 The series "Vanished" by Meg Cabot is really awesome! It's about a girl named Jess (short for Jessica of course, 16 years old). She gets struck by lightning and gets amazing superpowers: she can now locate missing children. She goes through a bunch of adventures with her boyfriend, Rob. (18 years old). I absolutely love it! There may be a few bad words here and there, but nothing too bad, she definitely downplays it. Like she will say, and I quote, "'Get a freaking clue' I yelled. Only I didn't say freaking." You see what I mean? Anyways, I really like the series, it sort of like a mystery type book, except better with a little bit of romance. The plot is really well thought out and will definitely appeal to pretty much all teenagers. Jess is not to be messed with, in the beginning of the book she is super tomboyish and gets into lots of fights, but by the third book (each book contains too books inside) she decides to dress girly so she doesn't get into fights! Moving on, this is a really great book and I hope you read it! (:
I am a huge fan of Meg Cabot - a diehard fan. I love her books, I love her writing style, I love her ideas, and she is one of my biggest inspirations and idols (I'm an aspiring writer). I highly recommend purchasing these books and checking out other book series!

The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June by Robin Benway - Readable

The Extraordinary Secret of April, May, and June is a wonderful book! Unfortunately, it had a few downsides, such as a lot of cussing. I was quite surprised at the intensity of the foul language. However, I did understand why the author included that in there. Teenagers are teenagers and high school is high school. There are three sisters in this wonderful tale: April, May and June. Here is a little bit about their personalities.
April: the older sister who can see the future, gets great grades, and is a little bit over protective but very deep. May: the middle sister who can turn invisible, shuts herself out from her family, has almost no friends, hates history, and could almost be considered goth. June: the youngest sister who can read minds, wants to have lots of friends and be popular, is really pretty, and is too eager to grow up.
This story unfolds from three points of view, these three sisters. They get their powers on a strange day and when April gets a strange vision about June, April and May try to do everything in their power to stop it from happening. No spoilers! I promised myself I would give you no spoilers to the ending! :) You will just have to read it and find out! I recommend it to ages 13 and over... but probably more like 14 and over. (:
 I really did enjoy this book, but I recommend checking it out at the library or just borrowing it from a friend. It depends on what kind of books you are into, but I think you might want to read a couple of chapters before deciding if you want to buy it or not.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - Fandomly Rereadable

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7938275-the-hunger-games-trilogy-boxset
Picture From Here
I just finished reading the first and second books of The Hunger Games trilogy! They are absolutely amazing! I am so afraid the series will end with the last(third) one, but I am already halfway through it! The continuously unfolding plot of Katniss's relationship with Peeta and Gale and her personality-quick thoughts and strength-is absolutely breathtaking. It makes you want to cry and laugh and scream as you read and delve deeper into the wonderfully well-written novel. You will put the book down unwillingly. You need to read these books. They are wonderful! 
I know that once a book becomes popular, many people just don't want to read it, because everyone else is; but, trust me this book is so inspiring and awesome!
I am now a huge fan of this series and I have reread the books several times!  This book series is one of my favorite book series and I highly recommend buying it rather than borrowing it! 
Thanks for tuning in! Catch you later!
