I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

Two-Way Street

Two-Way Street - Lauren Barnholdt I liked this one, but I had hoped for a little more from it. I really liked the aspect of the story though. Jordan has broken up with Courtney, although not for the reason he actually told her. And we don't get to find out until about halfway through. I liked the suspense of seeing the narration jump from Courtney to Jordan from the day of the trip to the moment they met counting down to the breakup.

The only thing that kept pulling it down was the characters. I rooted for them both, because they were still so obviously into each other but not wanting the other to know. But it was some of the antics that they pulled that I didn't care for. But it wasn't enough for me to put the book down or to hate it.

More and more I'm seeing endings in YA that are so abrupt that I secretly wonder if I'm missing part of a book I've paid for. But it seems to be a growing trend and I don't think I care for it.
