Blackbird
Blackbird - Anna Carey 2nd person point of view. Eurgh. I really didn't care about the characters, except for maybe the narrator, but I think I'd have connected to her more if the story had been told in 1st person instead of 2nd person. Still, it kept me reading. I needed to know how it ended, only it didn't. And that, more than 2nd person POV or my inability to connect to the characters, is why I didn't like this book. We get a few answers, but not many, and we don't know if she and her friend get away. I guess I expected something better from Anna Carey, after the Eve trilogy. I guess there is a sequel that finishes this story, though I was thinking it was a standalone.

Eve
Eve - Anna Carey

Nie miałam dużych wymagań co do tej książki, wręcz sądziłam, że jest ona po prostu straszna. Byłam mile zaskoczona. Fakt...Nie jest to jakaś świetna powieść, od której nie można się oderwać, ale wcale nie taka tragiczna. Były momenty bardziej lub mniej ciekawe.

Fabuła jest interesująca a świat przyszłości, mroczny, brutalny i dobrze nakreślony. Bohaterowie  nie byli jacyś oryginalni, ale jakoś miło się czytało historię Eve. Język jest przystępny i zrozumiały dla czytelnika. Taka książka na jeden lub dwa wieczorki.

Reading now and next
The Mime Order - Samantha Shannon
Four Seconds to Lose - K.A. Tucker
Blackbird - Anna Carey
The Sea of Tranquility - Katja Millay
Atlantia - Ally Condie
Blue Lily, Lily Blue - Maggie Stiefvater
Shopaholic to the Stars: A Novel - Sophie Kinsella
Everything, Everything - Nicola Yoon

I'm still reading "The Mime Order" by Samantha Shannon and so far it's amazing, but still I plan to start with a book from my new reading pile later today, I'm in the mood to read two books at once.

 

The books on my new reading pile are
Shopohalic to the stars - Sophie Kinsella
Blue Lily, Lily Blue - Maggie Stiefvater
Atlantia - Ally Condie
The Sea of Tranquility - Katja Millay
Blackbird - Anna Carey
Four seconds to lose - K.A. Tucker

 

I'm most excited about the book by Stiefvater, I don't really know what to expect by Blackbird, Atlantia is a second chance for the author and the Shopaholic book the last chance for a author I struggled with in the last two years. Tucker's book will hopefully be sexy and entertaining, Millay's emotional and sweet.

 

And then I also plan to finish listening to "Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon, I'm about 90 minutes in the story and enjoy it a lot so far. 

 

Happy Reading!

Reading progress update: I've read 50%.
Blackbird - Anna Carey

How is it possible that this book focuses on a girl waking up, remembering nothing, and yet I'm still just bored with the whole thing? I can feel the tension that's trying to be ramped up, but it all just feels so... half finished?

 

The bright side is, this is a ridiculously fast read. I read 50% in about 50 minutes. I'll probably finish this today.
