The Rest of Us Just Live Here - Patrick Ness

I wasn’t sure how this one was going to go, but I ended up really liking it. It’s quite funny, and it has a really enjoyable and diverse cast of characters. I can only judge the representation of anxiety, but at least that part was done really, really well. And if you want a fun meta take on Chosen One tropes, this is a good one.

The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness

I did a first impression review of The Knife of Never Letting Go over on my blog, The Broke and the Bookish. I read thirty pages and then say my first date thoughts of the book. This one was pretty favorable and I can't wait to read more of it. 


I did a pretty long post over there, so check it out if you are interested. I'll paste my final verdict over here though, just for funsies. 


Final Verdict:
Yeah I am totally reading on. I am really curious to see how the story unfolds and what the rules and limitations of this world are. It sounds like a different twist on the dystopian thing, rather than just the controlling government makes us do something strange that our main character is rebelling against. I want to know more and can't wait to continue on!

Mini Review Round-up: Panic - Lauren Oliver, Fire and Flood - Victoria Scott, The Shadow Prince - Bree Depain, and The Crane Wife - Patrick Ness

My mini review round up: Panic by Lauren Oliver, a young adult action-filled contemporary published by Harper in 2014; Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott, a young adult "The Hunger Games" meets "The Amazing Race" novel published by Scholastic; The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain, a young adult urban fantasy take on the Hades/Persephone and Orpheus/Eurydice myths published by Egmont; and The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness, a literary adult retelling of a classic Japanese fairy tale published by Penguin.


I'd post the reviews here, but since it's four of them, I'm just going to link back to my blog.
