  • Parman Teen Book Review:”P.S. I like you” by Kasie West
    Posted on 11/22/2016 01:03 PM by parmanlibraryteens

           P.S. I Like You was my first Kasie West read, and I picked it up after reading many raving reviews and receiving countless recommendations. I was not disappointed; however, I did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped. This novel was highly entertaining, swoon-worthy, and absolutely adorable, yet unmemorable. Having finished this […]

Hely’s book is perfect for individuals who fit in either category […]

  • Parman Teen Book Review: “Me before you” by JoJo Moyes
    Posted on 9/20/2016 04:20 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    Although Me Before You is a sweet, poignant novel that ponders the value of family, friends, and love, I still feel as though it is one of the most overrated books of all time. Personally, I’m quite cautious when reading a novel that is very popular, for I fear that I will not love it […]

  • Parman teen book review: “The Problem with forever” by Jennifer L. Armentrout
    Posted on 9/7/2016 02:34 PM by parmanlibraryteens

    The Problem with Forever is a meaningful and deeply moving contemporary novel that tackles some heavy topics – abuse, mental health counseling, and even death – beautifully. Even though this novel is a little long for a young adult novel, I flew through all 480 pages because the story was so captivating. The plot follows […]
