Twenty-Five Weeks of Books and then some!

Okay so this semester I read a grand total... ready for it?... Thirty-two books!
So since I had to write 25 reviews for a class for 25 of the books, I figured why not publish AT LEAST the reviews/summaries of those twenty-five. Twenty-five out of the thirty books are considered young adult literature. Three are psychology-related. The other four are postmodern lit. I thought it'd fun to post it for all of my readers and partially for myself. I will be posting a new book every monday for the next five or six months. I know I've been awful about posting this semester, but trust me if you knew my grades you'd understand why. So here is the list of what I will be posting:
