Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
The Master Magician (The Paper Magician Book 3) - Charlie Holmberg

I shouldn't have read it (and I think I read it so quickly to get it over with).

 

It just... disappointed me... and I think more so than the other two.

 

I wanted to love this series, but it wasn't the fast-paced, magic-filled, steampunk that I expected it to be from it's book descriptions.  Instead it was a romance through-and-through, with the other stuff coming across as merely an after-thought.

 

Made even worse by the fact that she seems to think she is the only one that is allowed to break the rules (she seemed very shocked when she read in an article that a lady magician had been caught the year previous having an affair with her student) and is quick to judge - and even wound with hateful angry words - anyone... well, anyone outside of her and her teacher.

 

Her attitude - that of a fourteen year old, and not the twenty year old she's supposed to be - never changed, and at the happy ending of this book, I couldn't be happy for her.  When she was being injured or chased or threatened or whatever, I just couldn't be sad for her or worried for her.  I just didn't like her.  At all.  And found myself caring for the people around her... and even the bad guys, at least a little bit... but never her.

Reading progress update: I've read 23%.
The Master Magician (The Paper Magician Book 3) - Charlie Holmberg

Yeah, I started it.  I must be a glutton for punishment.  The good parts didn't make the many bad parts disappear, but I guess I just keep hoping the series will get better, especially since there is also a fourth book.  

 

It's started out okay.  They are now clearly in a relationship, but they have to keep it secret from everyone, which is funny, actually, considering they've made no effort to keep their interest in each other (especially on her side) from anyone since the very beginning.

 

He helped her keep two lies, one at the end of each previous book, and now she's keeping a huge lie from him, so that makes me wonder how the relationship can continue if she has been keeping such a huge lie for around two years now.  She's 21 now, and still acts like a 14 year old - when will she finally grow up in attitude and mentality?  Seriously?

 

I still don't think of her as a hero.  I feel like she does everything out of ego and her "love" for this guy.

 

I want to scream, and yet I pick it up again and again (the same with the last two) hoping - just hoping - things will change for the better.

 

I truly am a glutton for punishment.

 

My favorite character?  The paper dog.  I read to see more of the paper dog.

Book three...
The Master Magician (The Paper Magician Book 3) - Charlie Holmberg

Am I stupid for considering reading this after being so irritated by both book one and book two?

 

There are some good parts, I'll give you that, but they don't outweigh the bad parts.

 

I read the book description and it has me intrigued.  I had an idea that part of it would happen somewhere around the beginning of book two... and the other part was so freaking obvious that a blind man would have seen it coming from a couple of miles away...

 

but I want to see if it gets better because I was really looking forward to reading these and now I'm all irritated and I want book three to fix it all and make me happy that I read it...

 

but what if it doesn't?

 

<sigh>

The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors - Drew Daywalt,Adam Rex

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I normally don't do half stars, but I really am between 2 and 3 stars on this one. 

Overall, this is an interesting read about the fictional origins of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Those origins are basically epic battles between household items. Why are the household items fighting all the time? We will never know. But it's a silly and fun read. 

The book is written with a knight-like mentality, i.e. "I must be the best warrior, but I also want a challenge.", so pretty much fighting for the sake of fighting. Good message for kids? Probably not. But it is entertaining enough if you don't take it too seriously (which you are obviously not meant to do). 

The pictures are interesting, although some of the battle scenes were a little cringe-y. The smooshed apricot and pile of decapitated dinosaur nuggets were a bit much. 

This is a weird, but interesting book. Kind of creepy, kind of fun. I like the idea behind it.
