Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler
Why We Broke Up

Jillian St. John, May 25, 2014

I just read the entire relationship between Min amd Ed. What a cleaver book this was. You have Min writing Ed a note to accompany a box full of things from their relationship (let's face it all of us girls keep little momentos from our relationships). Min goes thru each item from the very first to the very ladt and puts together the story of their relationship and why it didn't work out. They have so much fun and you really like Min even tho she is simultaneously pissing you off. But that moment when they finally do break up (which hello isn't a spoiler it's in the title) i found my self crying and feeling her heart break. I wanted so badly for a different ending. And even know I find myself wishing and wondering what are Min and Ed and Al and Annette and Lauren and Joan all doing right now? I'm happy that I read this book. It made me remember my first love and heartbreak. I think anyome who reads it will identify with Minerva. I wish I knew what she was doing right now...

Looking for Alaska by John Green
Looking for Alaska

Jillian St. John, May 16, 2014

Okay so the first book I've ever read by John Green was The Fault in our Stars and we all know what a wonderful but that was! (If you dont then it should absolutely be your next book) since reading The Fault in Our Stars I have become kinda addicted to John Green. He is an amazing writer. I've read Paper Towns, An Abundance of Katherines, Will Grayson Will Grayson and I just completed Looking forAlaska. Not since Fault have I loved characters so much. My heart was broken again by this book. I know that it will go on my book shelf along side my other favorites. John Green's books are consideredYA but I am 30 years old and I have never loved a single author more than I adore John Green. This book makes me feel heartbreak, serious, hilarious, angry, and many more emotions. I started reading these in order to have something to talk about with my little sister who is 15 years younger than me and I am so happy I did. I don't want to give u a summary of the book. I don't want to spoil it I just want whoever is reading this to say, "Damn, I need to read this book." Trust me you eill not regret it.

Matched (Matched #1) by Ally Condie
Matched (Matched #1)

Jillian St. John, February 12, 2014

I enjoyed this book. It was a different twist on the future dystopian society books that have been popular lately. It's not all war war war its more about love and becoming who you are. I absolutely loved the characters and the storyline. It was simply a wonderful book and series.

Infernal Devices #01: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Infernal Devices #01: Clockwork Angel

Jillian St. John, November 8, 2013

I loved the mortal instruments books and these clockwork books are good too except for me it was a little hard getting into it. That being said once I got into it I couldn't stop reading it or thinking about it. Of course I fell in live with Jace's ancestor will. And tessa was endearing as well. Cassandra Clare does an excellent job of transporting you into the 1800's. I do recommend this book to everyone specially my fellow mortal instruments fanatics!
