The Gauntlet
The Gauntlet - Underwood Michael

The moment is finally there. The fight that will prove whether all that Kris did was in vain or not. Although I never really doubted the outcome of the challenge, I found it an interesting and thrilling episode nonetheless. So far, I really like the intricate world that is being created. I hope we will be getting a bit more of the council soon.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

 

Born to the Blade Season 1 Episode 4.

We Can Be Mended
We Can Be Mended - Veronica Roth

I had missed the announcement of this final epilogue to the Divergent series completely, but don't worry, you won't miss a thing.

It's five years since the events in Allegiant (which was a ridiculous book and I'm still being kind), and I didn't have a strong desire to go back, but the completist in me wanted to have read the entire series, so here I was, reading We Can Be Mended.

And they get mended over the course of this 27 page story. I've seen a lot of people hate this story with a passion, but I'm more indifferent. I only got the slightest of information on how the world changed and what is going on now. Instead there's the rather forced coming together of two of the surviving characters from the book.

I would only recommend it for big fans of the series, and even then prepare to dislike it.

Second Activation
Second Activation - Darren Wearmouth,Marcus Wearmouth

First, there was the First Activation, which resulted in a world where everyone had one goal: a murder-suicide. The first part of the novel was survival horror as two brothers who escaped this fate try to stay alive amidst this crazy scenario. I really liked that part. After they stumble on some of the people who are behind it, it turns out to be more of a stop the bad guys kind of books. I was less a fan of that.

Unfortunately, Second activation was more of the latter. In every sense of the world. It was still very fast paced and certainly entertaining, but it also felt a bit repetitive. Also, everyone who was not one of the three main characters were dying like flies even though the main characters themselves obviously never get hurt. They are THAT good. The ending left room for another book, but I'm not sure there is one.

Baby Shower
Baby Shower - Cassandra Khaw

All of the characters in Born of the Blade are struggling with their biggest challenge yet: a baby shower. It seemed a bit like an episode of a sitcom, or else maybe just a middle part of a book but as a separate part of the serial it was a bit strange. Of course, the baby shower itself is filled with much more than baby presents, but still. To me it felt like filler, and this is only the 3rd episode. I’m curious to see where this is going.

Wall-E
Wall-E - Shiro Shirai

Wall-E is awesome, there's no denying it.

Like other manga in this series it closely follows the original story so there is not a lot of new things to be discovered. The artwork delivers but is relatively simple. Wall-E is cute. There is a little bit of extra things at the end aimed for children.

Nice for fans, but otherwise I think the movie itself will do.
