This week it was back to classes (boo!), but I still managed to find plenty of time to read :D. I’ve also been good and spending more time connecting with all you awesome bloggers on Twitter, which is generally challenging for me. I’m a bit Twitter illiterate and intimidated to be honest ;-).
I finished Above World this week! If you recall, I was super excited to read this one because I was craving mermaids and ocean-themes without the angst and drama that seems to be present in most of the YA mermaid books currently out. Above World was a pretty awesome mix of fantasy creatures with sci-fi reasoning behind them. I have to admit that I’m not sure what age group to classify this one as though, since there were some creepy scenes towards the end that might not be good for a younger audience to read. In any case, it’s perfect for adults who are craving juvenile fiction with an awesome premise!
Scarlet was next on my list, since I borrowed it from the library and so very much need to read it before the due date. I doubt I’ll be able to renew it since it should be a popular choice ;-). My review of Cinder is coming out on Monday, since I wanted to get my thoughts down on that before starting the sequel ;-). So far I’m wondering how the Red Riding Hood theme is going to tie in; I can’t decide whether I like Wolf or not! ;-)
Finally, I’m reading The Elephant of Surprise for review. This is the fourth book in the Russel Middlebrook series (Geography Club is the first) and it is supposed to be a stand alone. I read Geography Club to get an intro to the characters and their lives, and have now skipped ahead to The Elephant of Surprise since it is coming out (haha) at the end of the month. So far I’ve been a little disoriented about what has happened in everyone’s lives, but there is enough explanation that I can catch up ;-).
And in case you missed it, these were my posts this week:
