Review: Midnight Frost by Jennifer Estep

Although she’s still heartbroken over what happened between her and Logan Quinn, Gwen still has been searching for the artifacts that Nike previously revealed to her. She needs to get them before the reapers do. Gwen is used to Reapers attacking her and her friends. Since everyone knows she's Nike's champion now, she's expecting even more attacks. What she doesn't expect is for the Reapers to try to poison her and she especially doesn't expect them to accidentally poison someone else instead. There is only one place to get the antidote to the poison and Reapers are sure to be waiting there for her...

I absolutely loved Midnight Frost! I enjoyed each book in the series but I believe this may be my favorite. Estep once again carried me away on an enthralling mythological adventure that seemed to leap right off the pages. I was anxious to find out where Gwen and Logan would stand in the after effects of Crimson Frost but this book was so much more than just a follow-up on their relationship. A new character is actually introduced in this book that took the story to a whole new level. We find out a little more about Gwen's family history and gain a little more of a peek into that past. I also have to state for the record, I want a gryphon! I won't post any spoilers but I am totally in love with the gryphons now! 

Midnight Frost is book #5 in the amazing Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep. If you love to read young adult novels with mythology and adventure then this series is for you!

Review: Invisible by Marni Bates

Marni Bates once again had me up flipping pages late into the night with her new laugh out loud worthy novel, Invisible.....

Invisible tells the story of Jane Smith. Jane has never wanted to be anything other than invisible at her school. Jane's best friend Mackenzie recently became an overnight internet sensation and their other best friend Corey started dating a rock star. Leaving Jane feeling left behind. Invisible was okay with her best friends by her side but now Jane feels left out and no longer as connected with her best friends as she once was. Now she's thinking it might be better to get some attention after all and to stop being so invisible. Which results in Jane being assigned a front-page article for her high school's paper, The Smithsonian. For that, Jane must write a groundbreaking story on which she is accompanied by Scott, the cute newspaper photographer that she just so happens to resent. 

I really liked Awkward, the first book in this series, and liked being able to get to continue the story here with Invisible while getting to know Jane better. I really liked Jane in this story. Even though she starts off a little reserved, her inner voice can actually be quite spunky and funny at times. Scott on the other hand is cute and infuriating but totally loveable. He really helps bring Jane out of her shell and they have great romantic chemistry. I was really surprised by Chelsea's role in the book and can't wait to read more about her in the upcoming book "Notable". 

Invisible is fresh, young, and hilarious. It will have you wrapped up until you can't help but to know what happens next.
