Did you miss the fabulous Tahereh at the Dark Days event? Shame. She was awesome, and she had the coolest purse I've ever seen in the history of time, and I thought about mugging her for it but that seemed woefully unprofessional and so I didn't, even though I'm pretty sure the law would have been on my side. I guess we all have regrets. Well, anyway, check this awesome review written by local bloggers GIRLS ON THE WEB. We met this fabulous blogger at Tahereh's event, where we did not mug Tahereh for her purse but thought very seriously about it. Check this *fab* review:
Me is a thrilling book full of adventure, superpowers and love. In this
book the protagonist, Juliette, starts out in an asylum with nothing but a
broken pen and a notebook. She is not in this place because she is crazy, but
rather because she is considered a threat to the human race. After almost a
year, she sees someone again-they have sent her a roommate. Why have they sent
her a roommate, she wonders? It turns out, it is because they want to use her as
a weapon. Will she let them or will she rebel? Read the book to find out. This
book was absolutely amazing! You don’t have to like superheroes to like this
book. I couldn’t sleep until I finished it. Recommended for ages
Shatter Me is the first novel by Tahereh Mafi and is
expected to be the first book of a trilogy. Mafi’s writing style is unique
allows the reader to get to know the characters better. This book is truly one
of a kind." --Girls on the Web
Don't forget! You can get your OWN copy of FRACTURE by Megan Miranda signed at our upcoming event!
"Although it took me a while to finally sit down and read
Fracture, I was not disappointed. Fracture is definitely a pretty quick read, at
only 264 pages, but each page is filled with so much emotion it was hard to put
it down for long periods of time. I especially loved the relationship between
Delaney and all of the most important people in her life and how everyone is so
affected by her drowning. Fracture was an amazing read that had me wanting more
and more until the very end when I was finally satisfied.
Reading Fracture by Megan Miranda is like listening to one
of Beethoven’s symphonies. At first, the story starts slowly, building up to an
amazing crescendo and cascading into a perfect finale. Miranda’s writing is just
beautiful, she managed to keep me interested enough in the story without feeding
me too much information all at once. When Delaney felt happy, I felt happy for
her. When Delaney cried, I cried with her. When Troy kissed Delaney in his
kitchen, I got butterflies and I could feel my face lighting up. When I finally
finished Fracture I was a blubbering mess of emotions. Even remembering how
things ended makes me teary-eyed.
Fracture is one of those books that you really need to
dedicate your time to, because you won’t want to put it down once you start.
Miranda takes you into the world of a damaged girl who’s just trying to figure
out her life in the wake of a terrible accident. By the end of the book you’ll
be laughing, crying, and cheering while still trying to comprehend what
happened. I definitely recommend Fracture to lovers of mysteries, thrillers,
paranormal, and romances." --Literary Exploration
