    I’m curious to see what you think of The House of Night series (After the first book anyway) and Glass which I’ve heard is pretty intense.

    1. kaseyheinly Says:

      You know, I *almost* bought Glass at a bookstore in the San Fransisco airport last week, and I wound up with I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak and Stardust by Neil Gaiman instead. I’m away again this week, but once I return home again, I’ll hop right into House of Night and Glass.

    I’d like to recommend Liberty, by Annie Laurie Cechini. We’d be happy to provide a review copy.

    1. kaseygiard Says:

      Sounds great! I’ll send you an email so we can discuss this further. 🙂

  3. Hi Kasey!
    I’m trying to find the best way to get information about sending you an either advanced copy or finished PDF of my clean sci-fi YA novel. Can you send me an email with the info? Thanks so much! What a great resource for Christian families!

    1. kaseygiard Says:

      Hello Kristin – I’ll send you a quick email with my information. Thanks!

  4. Jessica Says:

    Hey Kasey,
    I was wondering if you’d be interested in reading a pdf of a new novel for young adults, called Annabeth’s War. If you are please let me know. Thank you! 😀

    1. kaseygiard Says:

      I’m interested. I’ll send you an email to discuss this further. 🙂

  5. Hazel Says:

    Just a friendly correction it’s The Fault in Our Stars not among 🙂

      Eep! How embarrassing. Thank you!

  6. Kimberly Hogg Says:

    My daughter wants to read “Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment” by James Patterson. I know nothing about it so I hesitate to allow her. I would love to hear your opinion, from a Christian perspective. Thank you!

    1. kaseygiard Says:

      Hi Kimberly! I haven’t read that one yet, but I’ll see what I can do about getting a review posted in the next month. Thanks!

    2. kaseygiard Says:

      Hi Kimberly – I finished Maximum Ride a few days ago, and I will get the review posted this month. Sorry it took me so long! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Have you read Gaining Favor with God and Man by William M Thayer? It’s an oldie but I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks!

    1. kaseygiard Says:

      I have not read it yet. From the description on Amazon.com, it sounds like a really awesome book. I’m interested in reading it. For now, I am only reviewing fiction on this blog, but in the future at some point, I’d like to add a reference page for great nonfiction books. I’ll keep this one in mind for that list. Thanks!

    Hi! I am a new author. My YA Christian Suspense book, Winter Shadows is releasing October 29, 2013. I would love a review if you have time. Please advise of an address for Tate Publishing to mail an ARC. My website is http://caseybond.tateauthor.com. I am on Goodreads as well. If interested, just contact me. Thanks, Casey B

      Hey Casey! I’ll send you an email privately about scheduling a review. Thanks for your comment. 🙂

  9. Janet Morris Says:

    Could you please review the Divergent series by Veronica Roth

    1. kaseygiard Says:

      I am so glad you mentioned this series! I have been itching to read them and have heard so many great things about them. I’m in the middle of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare at the moment, but Divergent by Veronica Roth is next on my list! Look for the review at the end of this month. 🙂

    2. kaseygiard Says:

      I just finished reading Divergent and I can’t wait to post a review. Look for it on Thursday, 9/26/13! Thanks for your recommendation.

  10. Grace Says:

    Hi! Would you consider reviewing the hunger games series? There is still a lot of hype going on about that series and I am wondering if they are really any good 😉 Btw I love your blog, it is so nice to be able to read a book and enjoy it all the way through without having to stop because of an explicit or uncomfortable scene. That is mostly why I end up reading christian YA like Frank Peretti (also great author by the way!) Aaanyways I’m rambling, thanks so much for all you do!

    1. kaseygiard Says:

      Thanks, Grace! I’ve read the Hunger Games books but haven’t done a review. I can put something together maybe as a look at the whole series. Give me a couple weeks and check back!
