Sleepless by Terri Clark

Rating: 4 Stars
Genre: Horror/Romance/Mystery
Release Date: 9/2/2008

About the Book: Trinity is a dream walker. She can see into people's dreams and knows their secrets. She even helped find Rafe Stevens, who murdered Trinity's friend Kiri. But now the murder trial is over and Rafe's got everyone convinced he's unstable, so he gets locked up in a mental hospital. It's there Rafe learns to dream walk too and this time he's after Trinity. She needs to stay awake to stay alive.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: When I first saw a picture of this cover, I had now idea it was a suspense story, I thought it was another cute romance. So when I actually saw the book trailer, I was surprised. The book looked so good I had to give it a try, even though scary stories aren't my favorite. (Plus, there was a promise of romance, so I knew it had to have something I'd like!)
I ended up loving it! It was a quick read that kept me up-(in a good way wanting to read more, not in an 'I'm so scared' kind of way) and it was full of suspense! Plus, there's a great romance between Trinity and Dan, who just so happens to be the son of the lawyer that got Rafe off on insanity. It was just a perfect blend for a scaredy cat like me.
There's a lot about Trinity's dream walking gift that I'd like to know, so I hope Terri Clark writes more about Trinity. Plus, Terri Clark is a teen librarian-yay-and who better to write for teens than someone who works with them all day? (I especially loved that she had Dan and Trinity head to the library to do research!) I thought this was a good debut and I'd recommend it readers wanting some mystery and suspense with their romance.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
