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.


Twisted - Gena Showalter Twisted is one amazing story! It had my mind whirling with all the events that happened in such a short time. It's the third book in the Intertwined novel and it definitely isn't winding down to a stop, instead it's getting to full speed. This is one of the better YA series I have read in such a long time.

I can't express how much I love the premise behind this series. I love the souls trapped in Aden's head and I love the new family he's formed with Riley, Victoria and Mary Ann. Such a great dynamic that leaves room for just about anything and everything to happen to the four as they try to help Aden along his journey.

It's so hard not to give spoilers, but in this my heart was aching with Mary Ann. She has a tough time in this novel, especially the end, and I kept rooting for things to finally go her way. I admit, in previous novels, I didn't care for her too much, but she's grown on me and in this I have found I really do care for her. She's such an essential part to the group that the story would have been missing something.

The ending definitely leaves off like the rest, with an abrupt ending that leaves people wanting more, leaving a thread of storyline to clue us as to the possibilities of the next book. I was breathless when I finished the book, hands sore from gripping the pages as I read on, only to be left such an ending that begs for more. Definitely one of the best young adult novels I've read in a long time. This book belongs in hand, not on the shelf!
