Hooked by Catherine Greenman is not your typical pregnancy novel. There is no ‘ you will get pregnant and you will die.’ Hooked opens pretty. I am not a huge fan of teenage pregnancy so I wasn’t sure how much I was going to love Hooked, but Catherine Greenman does not try to.

Notify me of follow-up comments by email. I love books that describe hobbies like knitting, crocheting and baking and I have been itching to learn to crochet since I read this book.

Their attraction is almost immediate and a relationship follows quickly. At times it was kind of easy-to-put-down, but mostly it was good. But then, Thea misses a period. There was no depth to the characters, ggreenman dialogue at times didn’t seem realistic. I usually steer clear of teen pregnancy because I feel it is glamorized.

Fortunately for Thea, she has a somewhat tarnished knight in shining armor who comes to her aid This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. I was kind of indifferent to him, even before Thea got pregnant.


Will’s aunt is subletting her apartment so they are able to find a place to live with the baby. I was expecting more of an easier plotline, but it actually goes along with a pretty in depth feel and alot of thought within the story Would cafherine like me to consider your book for review?

Nothing is sugar coated, nothing is too far of a stretch. From what we see, their relationship is mainly physical – and I don’t mean that it’s addressed as an issue how most of it is physical; that’s just the way it is.

Review of Patches of Grey by Roy L. She is sure that when Will leaves for college in the fall that he will dump her, but he doesn’t. Another complaint I have is how bizarre the first few chapters of the book are. Nope, none of that here.

I know this is totally random and weird, but I got this book out of the library, and I think I may have been the first to read it.

This makes it tremendously difficult to connect with them, and I generally end up frustrated and uninterested.

I kept trying to imagine in my head, while reading, what a the finished hoooed would look like! Or even if they were would they agree to such a commitment?
