Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss
Stephanie Perkins
2010

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris—until she meets √Čtienne St. Claire: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna—and readers—have long awaited?

Oh! So! Cute! I couldn't get enough of this book! At times St. Claire made me so mad! But then I just melted at him. Don't we all know a guy like that? Where his accent melts us, same with his smile and the way he looks at you with the cocked eyebrow.

But this book totally deserves 5 stars! I loved it from the moment I met St. Claire :)

Trapped

Trapped
Michael Northrop
2011

The day the blizzard started, no one knew that it was going to keep snowing for a week. That for those in its path, it would become not just a matter of keeping warm, but of staying alive....

Scotty and his friends Pete and Jason are among the last seven kids at their high school waiting to get picked up that day, and they soon realize that no one is coming for them. Still, it doesn't seem so bad to spend the night at school, especially when distractingly hot Krista and Julie are sleeping just down the hall. But then the power goes out, then the heat. The pipes freeze, and the roof shudders. As the days add up, the snow piles higher, and the empty halls grow colder and darker, the mounting pressure forces a devastating decision....


-Hayz's Review-

Oh my... Ok this book could have been a very good book. But unfortunately it wasn't. First the author got way descriptive in parts I didn't want to know. And the end? Um wtf? It was awful!!!! Spoilers if you continue reading. I mean the friend just died? First that is awful it was like what 2 paragraphs? The his ending? What happened to the rest of the kids.

I also felt like he just wanted to keep skipping to the end. Really? Sorry I just didn't like this book.
