Today I'm going to give you some short reviews of books I've read in the last couple of months, but never reviewed in full. This could have been because I couldn't really think of what to say about it or lack of time.
Ruby Red (Ruby Red Trilogy #1) by Kerstin Gier
I liked this book! It was a fun, quick and light YA read. The focus wasn't on the science part of the time travel, but I didn't mind that in this book. I liked the characters, especially the narrator. It was clear this was the first book in the series, the end felt very abrupt and the mystery hadn't been solved.
Recommended to: fans of light YA reads with a hint of sci-fi.
The Transfer: A Divergent Story by Veronica Roth
I waited for this novella for so long! I really loved Four in the Divergent series and I always wanted to know more about him and his life before Dauntless. Although it was a pretty short story, we get to see Four in a whole other light than in Divergent and this story gave him more depth. I liked the similarities between him and Tris, both gathering up courage to transfer and feeling strong afterwards.
I can't wait to read Four's next story!
Recommended to: everyone who loves Divergent.
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
This was a very mysterious book, though I did not find it super creepy or horror-like. It had a lot of twisted characters, so I couldn't really identify with them. Same went for the romance, since it wasn't sincere I could not root for it. But I still quite liked the book, the writer is very talented in describing creepy locations.
Recommended to: lovers of mysterious books.
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I read this book, since I absolutely loved Persuasion and I was curious to see how this writer would retell the story.
I can't say I thought it was very successful retelling. The pace was very slow and the story seemed to drag on and on. It did not help that the protagonist was constantly whining about how the boy she loved did not love her back anymore.
Recommended to: Well, not fans of Persuasion. Maybe fans of impossible romances?
