Stealing Candy Spotlight & Giveaway

Candy hates boarding school. As a junior, graduation is still eons away, and making films is the only way to survive the boredom.

Until she is kidnapped.

Candy panics. Along Came a Spider, Ransom, Taken, Cellular… Candy knows how these movies end. The only reason anyone would abduct her is to get a payout from her rock star father. Except Candy and her father are estranged. There’s no way he’s going to pay.

But with every hour that passes, Candy’s fear slowly recedes. Being on the road is freeing, not to mention great material for a new documentary. And the more time she spends with her mysterious and handsome captor, Levon, the more she learns the whole scheme is not just about ransom. It’s about revenge. What began as a kidnapping is spiraling into a crazy road trip adventure as Candy and Levon find a lot of wrong ways to do the right thing.

Fly by Night β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

Definitely one of many books I have requested based on a good description and an awesome cover, but definitely not one that I would recommend.

Carve the Mark β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

carve-the-markI was so excited to getΒ Carve the Mark, especially since I lovedΒ Divergent and I am an enormousΒ Star Wars fan. ButΒ Carve the MarkΒ left so much to be desired that I put it on my #DNF list when I was a quarter of the way through the book.

The Thousandth Floor β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

24921954Maybe it’s because the performance was terrible–maybe it’s because the book itself couldn’t be salvaged by a good reading–maybe I want to give it the benefit of doubt because I love the cover. Who knows? But I did NOT enjoy nor did I finish Katherine McGee’s The Thousandth Floor.

Mice of the Round Table β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

23384425I have been waiting to get my hands on a copy of this book ever since I heard about it from the author herself. I’m so happy that it’s finally out and that I can review it.

Last Seen Leaving β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

last seen leavingAfter reading the initial back copy, I was a little hesitant to request Last Seen Leaving, but I’m so glad that I did.

Puddle’s Wonderous Worry Dolls β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

puddles wonderous worry dollsI’ve been meaning to read more easy readers and middle grade, but I was thoroughly unimpressed with this one. Puddle’s Wonderous Worry Dolls reads like an easy reader but it tried desperately to enter into the heftier realm of middle grade.

The Killer in Me β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

the killer in meThis is unfortunately just one of those books where we’re trying to please everyone so everything is happening all at once and all up front.
