Book: Edge Of Falling

At first I was very interested in this novel.  As I read the book i realized that while I liked many parts of it, its greatest done fall was how it lack the new and fresh feeling.  It felt almost as though the author was being lazy. " I'm not going to waste my time with details" the book seemed to scream at me. And for me this was the major down side of the book and what had me for so long with holding my review. I like the thing that makes so many books wonderful is the details. It lets the reader enter that word, and makes the book hard to put down. It is also the thing that has us rereading books.
And While I said I loved many other parts of it and it had many wonderful moments, and best of all a very strong ending. Thought I " I do not see myself rereading this book". and While I know that many of my readers will love this book, I could not see myself telling my friends to go out and read it right away.
Over all the book did have some very good parts and if you are interested in go give it a shoot. If not move along to the next review so that you can find something more your style.

( YA -14 and up)
STARS:  * * * 3.3                             LEVEL: JEFF BRIGDES 

I was given a copy of the book by the publisher. This did not in anyway effect my review or thoughts on the book

Taking Time Off

Hello Dearest Readers,
I'm sure that you have noted the lack of posts lately.
Sadly being a teenager with many other things like school, work and family it's hard to also run a book review blog. While I am trying very hard to work on reading the books I have gotten via sites like Netgalley working with the many book dead lines, and the many things going on in my life it is very hard.
Though I have been trying to find away to make money from running DaydreamerN's reviews, it has proven to be very hard. With such low daily hits I have not been able to get any adds, or other means of income from the site.
With that being said I find that it grows harder everyday to read all the books that I should and to also try to live my personal life and met those goals.
Now I'm not saying that I will no longer be blogging, because that is not true. I will do my best to keep reviewing and working on making the site more user friendly as long as I can.
I'm writing this to let you know that I have not forgotten about any of you.
But sadly for right now I have to yet again put my personal life before the blog.
As I get closer to college everyday the stress of money gets harder on me and my family. I have to push myself to do better in school, and to work a job, and save money. Lots of money. I'm sure this is something you all can relate too.

I'm so sorry to all of the loyal readers, I really love all of you and the time you take out of your day to be there for me and read this.

To all the authors and publishers who deadlines I have not met or emails I have not written back too, I am so beyond sorry, I will do my best to read all of the books and answer the emails at some point ( hopefully soon) but until summer I need to focus on my life and not getting stressed out.

Thank you all so much!
