BOOK THOUGHTS: Doppelganger by David Stahler Jr.!

Doppelganger by David Stahler Jr.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was great. I loved the originality and the characters were very realistic
and raw. I suspense was good and the romance was good too, I liked that the romance wasn't bigger than the story line. This was definitely a creepy ass read. I have to pick up another David Stahler Jr. book soon. :)

"The Fat Girl" by Marilyn Sachs!

This was a good ass read.
These are the types of main characters we need to see more in YA fiction. Jeff is the type of character who is a dick and doesn't think he is and even in the end, he still thinks he's great. It shows the realness of people because not everyone is going to change or grow, some people stay the same and I loved that. I hate those stories where let's say a girl is a mean girl, and throughout the book she grows and she sees how she is and realizes that it's not right. BLAH!!! so cliche and annoying. Ellen (The Fat Girl) was a great character as well and I love how she grew to stand up for herself against Jeff. I need more YA contemporary ASAP!!! I'd ask everyone who loves to read YA Contemporary to pick this up.

"Switched" by Amanda Hocking!

There a lot of filling & not enough cake.

I think I will explain it better in my video BELOW.
I wanted to LOVE this book, but it took a turn for the bad.
It started out real good, and then it plummeted down in a not so good way. 
But I will check out "Wake" when it comes out in 2012. I think Amanda Hocking is a really good writer and I hope I read something else from her that I fully enjoy.
Thank you to St. Martins Griffin for sending me an ARC.
