Inhuman

Inhuman is a YA futuristic sci-fi dystopian novel by Kat Falls, and the first in the Fetch series.

After a biological disaster has left all of the United States east of the Mississippi River blocked off by a huge, sprawling wall life is completely different.

Time has passed and Lane McEvoy does not know anything different. But there is that stomach churning fear and curiosity over what lies on the other side of the wall. A place now called the Feral Zone, where the millions of people infected with a virus have been mutated into bloodthirsty savages.

Curiosity can truly kill you though – punishment for violating the border is execution.

But when Lane is faced with the knowledge that someone she loves has passed the wall – and she’s tasked with bringing them back she sees just how unprepared she is to travel through the Feral Zone.

Will her humanity prove to be her strength… or her downfall?

My synopsis may not do the plot of Inhuman justice, but I definitely didn’t want to give too much away.

Inhuman is an action-packed, fascinating adventure story about Lane, whom I liked very much. She’s smart and compassionate.

This is a new sort of post-apocalyptic story. I appreciated that everyone isn’t crazy, which to me is more realistic. There’s a level of civilization amidst the disaster, but also those moments of horror and fear.

As a journey across an unknown land it’s incredibly suspenseful and interesting.

The secondary characters, also romantic interests, were well written. One of them, Rafe, was a bit course and at times truly unlikable. Yet he did grow on me. Another was Everson who I liked from the start and enjoyed in scenes very much.

Regarding the more romantic elements of Inhuman, the least mature moments of the book were when, through Lane’s first person narration, we learn of the boys’ “washboard abs”. Usually it’s done with a tad of humor, thank goodness, but still one of my least liked parts of the writing. However, for my part, Kat Falls did manage to provide two male romantic interests that I had a hard time choosing between!

I truly enjoyed the slow, nerve-wracking introduction into the Feral Zone and the United States made wild. It became surprisingly romantic, increasingly creative, and later on horrifyingly sad. In other words, very affective. Oh, golly.

I definitely want more. There’s so much I’m not telling you – you need to read it ASAP!!!

Reckless

Reckless is a YA fantasy adventure by the ever-revered (for good reason) Cornelia Funke.

Jacob Reckless has been passing through a mirror portal in his father's forgotten (or, rather, ignored) study for years now. After his father disappeared and his mother became a shell of her former self, he found it. Since then, it's been hard to stay tethered to his world - instead, he's become more and more connected to the alternative option.

In fact, he's managed to make a name for himself as a treasure hunter. And always by his side is a loyal vixen named Fox, a shape-shifter. She's probably the closest thing he has to a friend - but Jacob still considers himself a loner. But he's become comfortable with the different creatures, monsters, and magic this world has to offer - even though right now they are at war with a stone people called Goyl. None of that interests him. He just seeks out his mysterious objects and fetches good prices.

But that's all about to change. …

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…
