I have just finished reading an advance copy of The Karma Beat by YA author Juli Alexander. This was my first YA genie book and I truly enjoyed it. The Karma Beat is a witty, fun read and is scheduled to release later this month. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a quick read and if I had a daughter of my own I’d feel safe with her reading it. So if you get the chance, pick up a copy when it goes on sale.
Not every seventeen-year-old girl works part time for the U.N.I.V.E.R.S.E., but when you’re a genie, you have obligations. I’d rather spend my time rocking with my older brother’s band. I’ve been waiting years to replace the last drummer. Just when it’s looking good for me, Leo Fuller shows up, and this bad boy genie’ s after more than just my drummer gig.
Male genies are dangerous, volatile, bad-boy types, and I’m finding him way too attractive. If we’re caught together, we could both lose our powers and be banished to the other realm. I know helping Leo will be a really bad idea. What I don’t know is why I’m doing it anyway.
One thought on “What Are Your Reading Thursdays”
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Alexander’s other YAs, and I’m looking forward to this one. She writes with humor and insight and I always close her books with a smile on my face.
