DNF: The Mirror Sisters
The Mirror Sisters - V.C. Andrews

No stars.

 

Possibly one of the worst books I've read from the VC Andrews ghost writer. 22% in and the thought of anymore makes me want to cringe. It's about identical twins. All I'm getting is how identical and how special they are. And I'm fed up already. The mother is an overbearing bitch who wants her super speshul twins to be identical in every way down to thoughts. She's not allowing them to play with other children because they might disrupt the twin's special identicalness. It's the same thing over and over and over. It's ridiculous and I can't stomach any more of this book.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Gallery Threshold, Pocket Books for the chance to view the title.

They Didn't Teach THIS in Worm School! -... They Didn't Teach THIS in Worm School! - Simone Lia,Simone Lia

I received an ARC of this book through Library Thing in exchange for an honest review.

This is a fun and wacky book.

It is a tale of the beginning of a friendship between two unlikely protagonists: a bird and a worm. The two have a chance meeting, which leads to an unexpected journey and lots of crazy adventures.

I loved it. This is such a fun read. It is very unpredictable and hilarious. While reading it, you have no idea what is going to happen next, which is a very welcome change from a lot of books for young readers.

The copy I received was in black and white, but the pictures were well-done and interesting. I can only imagine how awesome they will look in the finished color edition.

A great book for young readers, especially those who may be hesitant about reading.

This is definitely an adventure that you don't want to miss.

DNF: Cleopatra's Shadow
Cleopatra's Shadows - Emily Holleman

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

Comes under the category of sounded like a good idea at the time, but I can already tell after just a few chapters this is not one for me. Ancient Egypt is one of those historical periods that absolutely fascinates me, which is why I requested this novel. But I simply don't see myself sticking with it. Not rating because I've not read enough to really judge. 

 

Thank you Netgalley and Little, Brown Book Group UK.

Legion
Legion - Julie Kagawa

I'm quitting this series with this book. At the end of the last book, there was a cliffhanger that reminded me of the author's previous series. I decided if she pulled the same move, I would be done. It didn't take long into the book to confirm the exact same thing was happening, so I'm going to quit because I think I'll just be frustrated otherwise.

 

In case you want the specific reason:

this book had a love interest death fake-out. The last book ended with Ember's human boyfriend dying. This book began with him getting saved by getting a blood transfusion from a dragon, so he's perfectly fine and alive. It just made the end of the last book feel cheap. Plus Ember's relationship with him was the weakest element of the series for me, and I just don't feel like reading two more books of it.

DNF: The Locksmith's Daughter
The Locksmith's Daughter - Sharmila Cohen,Karen Brooks,Karen Brooks

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

I snagged a copy of this one when it was a Read It Now on Netgalley. This was a case of it sounded like a good idea at the time. I was looking for something different than what I usually read and this one caught my attention immediately. I'm quite fascinated with Elizabethan period drama but I'm just not getting into this one. I'm not rating because I don't think I've read enough to rate, just enough to know that at the moment it's not for me. I may pick it up again at another time.

 

Thank you Netgalley and Harlequin (Australia), TEEN / MIRA.
