YA book reviews, reading and recommending since 2009

In My Mailbox (38)

It’s Christmas time but I didn’t get any books for Christmas. I got lots of cool goodies from Sephora like MAC dazzleglass and mascara. 😛 Anyway, I bought 2 books this week.

Take Me There by Susane Colasanti
In one short week . . . three lives change.

Rhiannon is devastated after the breakup with her boyfriend and wants him back. Nicoles ex is still in the picture, but she can’t help having a new crush. James and Rhiannon are just friends, though he may try to take it to the next level. Will their desire to take a mean girl down a notch bring these three friends what they want . . . and more?

Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty: Everything You Need to Look Pretty, Natural, Sexy and Awesome
by Bobbi Brown

Teenage girls often want sensitive answers to tricky questions about their skin, hair, makeup, and bodies. Well, Bobbi Brown’s your woman! Beauty editor of the NBC Today show and coauthor with Annemarie Iverson of Bobbi Brown Beauty, Brown’s hope is that teen girls will learn to recognize their own natural beauty and simply bring it out with makeup and healthy living. She specializes in the “makeunder,” insisting that makeovers “tend to involve lots of makeup and a masking of who you really are.”

Teenage Beauty is “the ultimate beauty guide for young women. It takes the mystery out of all those confusing rituals so that you can figure out how to feel happier and more relaxed about your looks.” Thirty chapters, packed with close-up photos of regular, everyday girls (as well as one or two celebrities!) include titles like “Zits!” “I Hate My ___,” “The Perfect Makeup Kit,” “Smelling Good/Smelling Bad,” “Rock ‘n’ Roll Babes: Hip Beauty Style,” and “Global Beauty.” Brown devotes one chapter each to African American, Latin American, and Asian American teen beauty. A thoroughly positive, upbeat style aims to make every girl see and accentuate her own individual beauty. –Emilie Coulter

Yup that’s all. I’ll post the images tomorrow.
