The Good Girls, Review

28 Sep

The Good Girls by Sara Shepard (sequel to The Perfectionists)

Plot: Where we last left off, Julie, Parker, Ava, Mackenzie, and Caitlin suspected their teacher, Mr. Granger, of being involved in the death of their classmate Nolan Hotchkiss. The girls had played a prank on Nolan who later ended up dead, though not by their doing. This book revolves around the girls trying to clear their name, which is made more difficult as more people they know end up dead. Suspicions are raised; are the girls now starting to suspect each other?

Would you recommend this book? Yes. There was a major plot twist close to the end that I was not expecting at all. It made me want to go back and reread the first book as well as the second book to see how I missed it. Perfect for fans of mystery and suspense. The ending is also set up for another book, should the author wish to continue the series.

Legend, Review

12 Nov

Legend (Legend #1) by Marie Lu

Plot: Far into the future, the United States has split and is once more involved in Civil War. Two teens will find out just how far their side is willing to go when a murder forces them together.

At first glance, this is just another dystopian novel trying to piggyback off of the success of the Hunger Games trilogy. The first part of the story smacked of being written by a new author-questionable reality of plot and character (but a wonderful setting.) Then something unexpected happened. The plot picked up, the pieces fell into place, and I was left wondering how I ever couldĀ have assumed anything about the novel.

Would you recommend this book? Yes.
