DNF @ 47%
Twice Dead - Caitlin Seal

G to PG rated book- language, deaths and fighting
The book starts out with Naya a young girl trying to win the acceptance of her father sets off on a errand for him that leads to her death and resurrection. She is attacked at the door of her destination and falls to the ground When she wakes she finds herself in a strange place with strange people and her clothes are gone. She is told she's undead, a wraith and it to used to help save them all. Ah but things aren't that easy she must learn how to be a wraith and pass a couple tests. So the book goes into what she must learn. On top of her new death her father left before she woke, she is treated like a vermin and she has no good options if she can't make it There is a possible romance building, possible.
I loved the undead/wraith storyline, it was interesting and had many new ideas added to an old myth. I wish there would have been more story and less character development. It felt like I was just following Naya around as she went back and forth collecting her wraith lessons and never really went anywhere else. There were hints of something and then it went back to the same old story. I didn't like the way this book was written I was bored, tired of Naya and her small world. There was too much inner dialog, not enough action, too many useless detailed information dumps. I didn't find enough interest to continue this series
I received this book for an honest review

Obsidio
Obsidio - Jay Kristoff,Amie Kaufman

I don't even know where to start. I literally just finished this book five minutes ago. I'm in shock.

 

To be honest this entire series is just one long screaming fest because hOlY ShIt.

 

 

There's so many plot twists and the authors constantly push you to the brink of despair and make you think that everyone's going to die.

 

AND THEN THEY SNATCH YOU BACK FROM THE EDGE AND THEY'RE LIKE SIKE.

 

I think I've said this before, but I know some people had trouble with the way that the story was told as it was told through dossiers and stuff and I'll admit that it's out of the ordinary but I think it really fits the story.

 

I think this entire trilogy does a really good job of showing that there isn't always just black and white, good and evil, there's so many gray areas and showing how people fit into those grey areas. There are so many characters in this book, not all of them important, but you get a little snippet into almost all of their lives that gives you some understanding of them. It does a really good job of showing that good people are capable of doing bad things. And that it's a lot harder to simply cut someone off when you know that person.

 

There were so many characters in the book who had committed some really terrible atrocities and while it made me absolutely livid, seeing them through the eyes of some of the characters and hearing them talk, you begin to hate them a little less.

 

Except for Leanne Frobisher, that bitch can rot to be honest.

 

I really liked the dialogue among the characters, they all had their own distinctive way of talking. I think even without the name labels, you'd probably be able to figure who was speaking when. I also really liked the characterization. Obviously not everyone is likeable, but they feel real, like someone that you might encounter at some point throughout your life ya know.

 

It goes without saying that the plot was absolutely incredible and blew my damn mind.

 

I know that this probably is coming across as very scatter-brained and unorganized but I'm still reeling from the book and trying to get my brain working properly again. 10/10 would recommend and I'm 100% planning on reading this series again in the future.

The Mandela Plot by Kenneth Bonert
The Mandela Plot - Kenneth Bonert

A special thank you to Edelweiss, NetGalley, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Set in 1980s South Africa, The Mandela Plot centres around Martin Helger—a student at an all-boys private school in Johannesburg that doesn't quite fit in unlike his brother who is a mysterious legend.  Martin is bored with his mundane life until a beautiful American girl, Annie Goldberg, arrives.  Martin finds himself no longer in his protective bubble and is immersed into the political and societal struggles.  

Oh boy..where do I start?  I had the honour of reviewing Bonert's first book The Lion Seeker and it was a stunning debut.  But this sophomore effort coming of age tale just simply didn't resonate with me.  Honestly, I can't put my finger on it—perhaps it was the dialogue?  It was very hard for me to get into the book with several failed attempts and start overs.  That being said, once I did get into the story, I did enjoy parts of it.  The characters are complex, some are well-developed, and others, like Martin are underdeveloped.  Bonert clearly has a gift; there are some beautiful passages, but the lengthy paragraphs are unnecessary bulk and the slang stunts the reader (of note: there is a glossary at the end of the book).

Review of The Plot Against America by Philip Roth
The Plot Against America - Philip Roth

This was a fascinating novel - mainly due to what I see on the news every day today.  I loved the alternative history and the way Roth builds up the rise to fascism and the anti-Semitic tones of the story is impressive.  The characters are also nicely done, but the story itself did not have me turning pages.  It was a slow burn, and there was never a real desire for me to find out what happens next to the main characters.  That is why I did not rate the book higher.  With that said, the parallels between our political climate today and the alternate world Roth wrote about over a decade ago were scary at times.
