The third book in the New York Times bestselling and RITA award winning Forget Tomorrow series is a thrilling conclusion to an epic trilogy.

Seventeen-year-old Olivia Dresden is a precognitive. Since different versions of people’s futures flicker before her eyes, she doesn’t have to believe in human decency. She can see the way for everyone to be their best self-if only they would make the right decisions. No one is more conflicted than her mother, and Olivia can only watch as Chairwoman Dresden chooses the dark, destructive course every time. Yet Olivia remains fiercely loyal to the woman her mother could be. 

But when the chairwoman captures Ryder Russell, the striking and strong-willed boy from the rebel Underground, Olivia sees a vision of her own imminent death…at Ryder’s hand. Despite her bleak fate, she rescues Ryder and flees with him, drawing her mother’s fury and sparking a romance as doomed as Olivia herself. As the full extent of Chairwoman Dresden’s gruesome plan is revealed, Olivia must find the courage to live in the present-and stop her mother before she destroys the world.

Review: The Upside of Unrequited


Title: The Upside of Unrequited
Author: Becky Albertalli
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Source: Purchased
Release Date: April 11, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Goodreads Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

Review:

I loved this book! I read it in one day!

I connected with Molly right away. I could really relate to her. I liked how she openly discussed her body image issues and how she felt self conscious about people not liking her because of her weight. I’ve struggled with my weight my whole life so I could relate to those problems.

I’m an only child, so I couldn’t relate to Molly and Cassie’s relationship. But I have noticed how some friends become more distant when they get a boyfriend/girlfriend. I could understand that part of the story, and I think it would be believable for readers with close siblings.

I was so emotionally attached to this story. At times my heart was racing, and at others my eyes filled with tears.

This is a beautiful book. I absolutely loved it.

Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.

Review: The Little Red Wolf


Title: The Little Red Wolf
Author: Amelie Flechais
Genre: Children’s
Publisher: Lion Forge
Source: NetGalley
Release Date: October 3, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Goodreads Synopsis:

Lose yourself in in the dark forests of Amelie Flechais’ spectacular artwork. A young wolf, on a journey to bring his grandmother a rabbit, is charmed by the nice little girl who offers to help him… but nice is not the same as good. A haunting fairy tale for children and adults alike.

Review:

This is an amazing adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood. 

Not only is the protagonist a wolf, but it is a male wolf. This is a great modern example for boys in fairytales. Usually the boy in fairytales plays the prince character, and is only the love interest for the princess. Or he is a fighter or hunter of some sort. But this is just an innocent little boy wolf who is sent on a journey to his grandmother’s house. 

There are also larger connotations with the wolf being the main character. The humans don’t like wolves and want to kill them. When they find Little Red Wolf, they want to kill him even though he didn’t do anything to them. This could represent global problems on a broader scale, when people are blamed for the actions of one person in their group. An example of this is racism. This book can be a great learning tool. 

As well as the fabulous story, the illustrations are amazing. I love the simplicity of it. The colour palette reflects the mood of the story. The colours are more vibrant when Little Red Wolf first enters the forest, and become darker when he meets the little girl. 

I felt like the ending was a little abrupt, but I really loved this story!
