Book Reviews

  • Parman Book Review: “Love and Gelato” by Jenna Evans Welch
    Posted on 3/28/2017 01:42 PM by parmanlibraryteens

      After reading the first few pages of Love & Gelato, I worried I would not enjoy it because I felt as though the writing did not flow well and is bombarded with trite similes and some awkward attempts at humor. Thankfully this feeling did not last for long, as I was quickly able to […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review: ““Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard
    Posted on 1/31/2017 02:40 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    “A Torch Against the Night”will almost certainly take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and have you biting your nails from anticipation from start to finish. There were many, many things I enjoyed about this book, my favorite being Helene’s point of view. Although I did like Helene in An Ember in the […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “The Raven Boys” by Maggie Stiefvater
    Posted on 12/20/2016 12:50 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    This was my first Maggie Stiefvater read, and although it was enjoyable, it took me until the halfway point of the novel to be genuinely excited about reading it. The beginning was slow with a lot of it dedicated to explaining the background story and world-building, whereas I was ready to dive right into the […]
