The Snake Who Wanted To Be A Horse (WantsToBe) - Valerie Harmon,Carol Stevens
I am conflicted about this book. On one hand, the artwork is great. In general, the story is a good one about problem solving.

However, the ending. Look, I get that it is important to teach people to go by than appearances and to reach for what you want. The thing is that the ending to this book, where a snake does in fact become a horse is, quite frankly, a fail. It comes to close to the idea of "if you are not perfect, just get the work done" theme/idea that appears in so many things. And it is disquieting. To be fair, I doubt the author means for the story to be taken that way, but it feels that way. Don't worry if you are not "x" because there is a way to become "x". Normally, that's fine but when the snake just magically becomes a horse, it smacks of third party help or the idea that if you don't change, you don't want it badly enough (ie. According to the logic of the story, if a person was missing a hand and worked really hard at pretending they had two hands, a new hand would happen) and that is a bit dangerous.

Wanted!
Wanted! - Caroline B. Cooney

Me: In 2020 I'm going to read more new stuff. 

Also me: Let's reread this Caroline B. Cooney novel late late one night when I should be asleep. 

 

I don't remember why, but I had a sudden need to reread this book. It was like a craving that wouldn't go away. The book is really silly, but I still enjoyed parts (probably out of nostalgia), especially when Alice is on the college campus. Cooney's novels are very exciting when you're 10 and the internet is not a thing or when you're... older than 10 and just need to take a little brain break and revisit your childhood.

Bald is on the chase
Most Wanted Mission 1: Chris Ryan Extreme: Series 3 - Chris Ryan

Bald was found by an old coworker Land to do a job. Land tempted him with a new life when he is no longer hunted by the Firm. 

 

Lot of actions, lot of guns. Bald found out the the bad guy he is after also have the Russians chasing after him.

 

So he is in. For the money and for the freedom. During the chase, lot of betrayal and there is no trust anywhere. He don't really know who to trust. 

 

And someone try to kill him too. 

 

It is action pack. But Bald is not really a likable character. He is too trigger hapy to be a good person. And he is after the money instead of higher ideal. That's no good. 

 

His moral compass is all weird as well. Plus he is kind of sexist. 

 

Not likable character but might to closer to a not so sophisticated or educated persons. but highly trained in weapons. Scary world that the main character might died if he is not lucky or skill or both. 

 

Character need to develop better. On the whole still good enough because of the action and the plot twist. 

 

4 stars read.

Reading progress update: I've read 271 out of 326 pages.
Most Wanted Mission 1: Chris Ryan Extreme: Series 3 - Chris Ryan

John Bald is screwed. 

Land, his former boss asked him to help get someone. This someone is a horrible person who tortured women for fun. He was then shot at and beaten up. A woman, Odessa, come into view only to be suspected to harm him too. 

 

Bald is not really a good person to not find out more before killing someone. But then his companions are not good people either. There aren't many good persons in this book. 

 

Action-wise. It is okay. Just don't know why the bad guys are so good at killing and escaping. 

 

Started this book earlier and stopped to read Festive books. Picked this up again to finish it.
