Book Review | Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas

Book Review | Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas

  Review First let me start this review by saying that Abigail Haas is an absolute freaking genius, she knows how to keep readers hooked and twist the story so that you never see the ending coming. She done this with Dangerous Girls and she proves to us in Dangerous Boys that even though you may think you know what’s going to happen, you don’t. I don’t want to come DB to DG because they are two completely different stories with two completely different twists. Really the only similarities that I could find between the two is the layout of the story, they both alternate between Then and Now, and the fact that they are both thrillers, that’s about as […]

Posted March 4, 2015 by Ink Ladies / 0 Comments

We are so happy to have author Jennifer Niven on the blog today!  We both LOVED All the Bright Places and we were so excited to interview Jennifer.  After you read the interview, be sure to enter the giveaway 🙂 Interview  What was your reason to writing a book about such a hard topic? Years ago, I knew and loved a boy, and that boy was bipolar. I witnessed up-close the highs and lows, the Awake and the Asleep, and I saw his daily struggle with the world and with himself.  The experience was life changing.  Back then, I didn’t talk about it, but it’s important to talk about. I experienced firsthand the stigma associated with mental disorders—both from […]
