Highlight one of your favorite reviews from the past month!
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater was my absolute favorite read this month. You can check out my review for it HERE. I did make the mistake of waiting a week after reading to review it, so I forgot some of the finer parts of the novel. Still, even now I remember the characters. Gansey, Blue, Adam, and Noah are so far from the typical cast found in YA novels. I loved the twist at the end and how the weirdness with Noah is finally explained. If you haven’t checked it out, I do recommend it. The only complaint that I’ve seen about this book is that the romance is pretty much non-existent.
What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?
I’ve found myself let down by a lot of popular books – Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey. The most recent one released (and I’ll probably get crucified for this answer) is Pushing the Limits. It did NOT push any limits. There wasn’t anything crazy or out of the ordinary about these two kids. Noah and Echo are like hundreds of other real life kids I know that have screwed up families. And it really bothered me that the huge secret took 300 pages to reveal. Nothing happened in the present that was crazy and what happened in the past turned out to be as minimally messed up as possible. It was an okay story at best but there’s so many people who are completely infatuated with Pushing the Limits and I don’t get it.
