Dawn of Chrysalis

After narrowly claiming victory in the first invasion, the F.O.R.C.E. team thinks it has time to rest. Not so. When Whatsit finds out Chrysalis is in danger, he's determined to rescue his fellow Chrysallamans. It's a task he knows he cannot accomplish without the help of his human brethren, but humans and Chrysallamans may not unite against a common foe. Will they work together or be destroyed?

List: "Old(er) Women in SF/F"

A nice long list of SF/F books and stories with old(er) women protagonists (or, in a few cases, prominent characters?).

After Atlas is Painfully Good Science Fiction
After Atlas (Planetfall Novel, A) - Emma Newman

I completely adored the book previous to this one, Planetfall, and it's so wonderful to see the second meet the same impossible standards. After Atlas is not a sequel so much as a companion novel, and I suspect it could be read as a standalone.

 

My latest on B&N SciFi

The Unrealistic Expectations of Perfection | #CritYourFaves

 

This post is a part of the #CritYourFaves event Aentee from Read at Midnight.


(P.S. There will be spoilers for the Divergent series by Veronica Roth in this discussion. You have officially been warned.)

Perfection is abundant in YA, or at least at first glance, it seems so. There is always the stunningly handsome love interest who is somehow smart, funny, popular, and well, perfect. There is always the "flawed" main character who can ace her classes, fight monsters, all while still getting the boyfriend at the end. Perfection has become a standard in YA, and one of my favorite book series is a major culprit. 

Click the link to see what problems I had with one of my favorite YA books, Divergent, and how it is still one of my top series.
