Teen Book Review: Seeker

Seeker by ARWEN ELYS DAYTON

Quin Kincaid has been trained all her life to become a Seeker: someone who protects the weak and less fortunate to keep peace in the universe. She has trained beside her two best friends, John and Shinobu, and the three of them plan to fight as Seekers together. The best part is that Quin will be with the one she loves, who also happens to be one of her best friends.

The night of her Oath to become a Seeker however, she finds that being a Seeker is not what she thought at all- and neither is her family, or the one she calls her true love.

Seeker is a fast paced novel filled with action, romance, and betrayal; it is the first of three books, highly recommended for fans of science fiction!

Teen Book Review: Shadowlands

Shadowlands Series by Kate Brian:

After a teacher she admired turns a serial killer and comes after her, Rory Miller and her family move to an FBI secured home in a place called Juniper Landing. However, this new place has its own mysteries: the fog-soaked island town lacks phone and Internet service, and a group of powerful young locals is overly focused on Rory, and when people from the town go missing, others don’t seem to care.

Her sister Darcy and her become friends with a group of exotic teenagers, and spend their time partying and having fun, until one of their new friends goes missing. This series is about love and loss, and the importance of family and relationships, a definite must read for lovers of mystery and romance!

Teen Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by  Jennifer E. Smith

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith is a light read about following your heart and forgiving your family. The story follows Hadley, a teen from the U.S. who travels to England for her father’s wedding. Although she is dreading the wedding, Hadley’s trip improves when she meets a cute British boy on her flight. They grow close, but get separated once in England. Reluctantly, Hadley goes to her father’s wedding. When Hadley chooses to listen to her heart, her journey becomes much more exciting, and she may have a chance at mending her relationship with her dad and finding the boy of her dreams.

I enjoyed reading The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, which was an easy read. While the story is unlikely to occur in real life, it had some elements that can relate to anyone. Jennifer E. Smith portrayed Hadley’s struggle with accepting her father’s new life beautifully. I also enjoyed the ending, which provides closure for every character. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy read with meaningful themes. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight will definitely leave you wanting to hop on a plane to England right away!

Teen Book Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves cutesy romance novels. The book is about a girl named Lara Jean who writes a love letter whenever she falls in love with a boy to get over them and she keeps it in a box in her bedroom until one day her letters are stolen and mailed out and Lara Jean has to deal with what happens next. I enjoyed the book greatly because of the relationships Lara formed with her sisters and her friends throughout the story. Also it’s a fun book to read during the holidays.
