Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

There were so many things wrong with this book in the world-building category it’s not even funny, so I’m going to get my complaints out of the way first.   First of all, I would have loved to know what year it’s supposed to be. The only thing she gives you is, “Seventy years ago science perfected the art of children.” So how far in the future from now is that perfection? Your guess is as good as mine. So […]

I really enjoyed the history of what went wrong in the world, particularly America, and the physical explanation for the Laz. Fascinating and well developed. The world building was great too, I was able to get a very good hold on the atmosphere Habel painted.   The characters though, not so […]

Review: Between Seasons by Aida Brassington

Review: Between Seasons by Aida Brassington

I don’t really have much to say about this book since I liked it. I have absolutely nothing to complain about as far as prose goes (which is what makes long book reviews for me…spending time complaining). The first line of this book is “Whoever said dying was easy was full of crap,” so just with the very first sentence I was hooked. The beginning was interesting and attention-grabbing, giving you a glimpse at dying and the afterlife through Patrick’s eyes. […]
