The Nine are rising!!

What I expected when I opened this book that it will be written mainly in Six's view, but it wasn't. I have no idea why the blurb says that this book is about number Six, because it contains all of the numbers except for Five, and is written in three...

Awesome tale stretched over hundreds of years

Across the Universe is awesome, much better than the other book that I read recently that is very similar to this, Glow. When I picked this book of the bookshelf I thought it was the next book to Glow, as it seemed so alike, but I was wrong, and this...

Way better than Pretties

I must say that I enjoyed Specials quite a lot, much more than I did with Pretties. In Pretties, I thought Tally was too weak and a bit stupid, and that her relationship with Zane, but not David was kinda upsetting. But in Specials Tally has become literally super human,...

Horrifying

When I first attempted reading Malice, I had to stop reading it after a few chapters. It was so scary. But then I picked it up again and tried more recently, and this time I wasn't so freaked out. The comics and words make this book...

A different story told with words and pictures

This book does live up with its name, it is peculiar. Not only told with words, but this book contains creepy photos, a girl floating, a boy lifting a boulder and an invisible boy. These photos truly bought the story alive, and it shaped what is an amazing story. ...

The future of eternal life

I must say, I never want to live forever. To be able to feel yourself melt away, while you still live on is not sounding all that pleasant. To give up having children and experiencing a great love is not worth living forever, and it is not truly living forever,...

Interesting style

The Invisible Hero is NOT just about Philip. It is NOT written in just Philip's point of view, but it is written as journal entries from everyone in the class. The blurb is very misleading, don't be fooled. The Invisible Hero is though about Philip and his...
