Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027
Scrambled Eggs at Midnight - Brad Barkley, Heather Hepler I think this is the better of the two Barkley & Halper books that I’ve read. I like the juxtaposition of Eliot’s and Calliope’s stories. Even with their circumstances in their lives, you really get the sense that these are two very lonely teenagers who need something. While I’m not a fan of the “Free spirited mother who acts more like the teenager” trope, this book makes Cal’s mom and their interactions work very well. The dialogue seems a little too adult and trying to be hip at times, but I still really enjoy this book.
