There are several titles in this series, and as such the various short ebooks tend to become a little repeatitive, with many of the same entries used for the various books.  Still a nice easy read for an armchair traveler.

Last Stop on Market Street
Last Stop on Market Street - Matt de la Peña,Christian Robinson

I think I've reviewed this book about three times now, but I just can't stop coming back to it. 

 

I'm currently reading Echo which was a Newbery honor book in 2016, the same year Last Stop on Market Street won the medal. I wanted to see if I thought Last Stop really deserved the medal over Echo (which I'm enjoying much more than I ever liked Last Stop). 

 

This time I really paid attention to the words, and thinking about it, de la Peña does write effectively and evocatively. There is an expansive story conveyed in very little text.

 

I think after this reading I better understand why Last Stop won the Newbery, though I still don't agree that it should have won.

Review: Apocalypse Cow
Apocalypse Cow - Michael Logan

So this was an adventure.  This book was as funny as I expected, but also serious, which I did not anticipate.  It follows several people separately as a government made virus is accidentally released and infects cows at an abattoir in Scotland.  A terrifying government agent is sent to clean up the mess and tie up any loose ends. But a lone cow manages to escape the slaughter and sets off infecting animals along to countryside.

 

The various characters' stories all merge until they are one group trying to escape Britian and avoid capture, torture and death at the hands of secret government assassin.  All while trying to avoid slavering animals who were hell bent on screwing and then eating the uninfected to death.

 

There were some parts with the slaughtering that turned my stomach and made me put the book down for a bit.  But this was a good read.  I actually connected with some of the characters and was rooting for them to survive and get the true story out about how the virus was actually spread.  This book was a mess in the good sense. I'm looking forward to diving into the sequel.
