Review: I Am Princess X
Stealth YA mystery! May and Abby were best friends growing up, and they developed a comic together. When Abby died, so too did the comic. Until stickers with the comic started popping up all over Seattle. May quickly recruits an at-home IT "expert" to help...

Review: Silver in the Blood
Closer to a 3.5. If you read Twilight and thought "Man, I wish the story focused more on those European vampires," I might just have the book for you. Granted, this is much better written and works more off of the Stoker-level Dracula/vampire tropes than t...

Spotify's Brand New Feature is the New Best Thing About Spotify
We're definitely Spotify partisans here at If It's Too Loud. I know I was one of the earliest American adopters, and it's easily some of the most valuable $10 in entertainment I spend a month. Spotify, however, has had one critical flaw, and that's in the...

Review: Serafina and the Black Cloak
Closer to a 1.5. I really didn't like this book. I'm a firm believer that kids need creepy. There's a reason Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark have persevered over time, and Serafina and the Black Cloak tries pretty hard to be in that sam...

Review: Those Girls
Closer to a 1.5. There are plenty of mean girl books. There are plenty of books that have absolutely despicable characters with little to no redeeming values. Those books sometimes know how to handle those topics, and Those Girls utterly fails at creating...

Review: Shadowshaper
Sometimes books are frustrating. Urban fantasy for the YA set is a mixed bag, with a lot of it going toward the paranormal romance. This is described as sort of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer -type tale, but it really reminds me more of a teenage female Harry D...

Review: The Fixer
While my love for teen romance novels is hardly a secret to those who have read my reviews for any length of time, political intrigue for the YA set is something I've wanted to see more of, and, time and time again, the stories seem to let me down. Gallaghe...
