A fantastic continuation of Across the Universe, with so many twists and turns - definitely not predictable!

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Across the Universe

Amanda Alsterberg, March 21, 2012

This story is one of my favorites! I loved reading from both Amy and Elder's perspectives - their different takes on the events that occurred were incredibly helpful in revealing the plot and character developments. I can't wait for the sequel!

Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Beauty Queens

Amanda Alsterberg, March 21, 2012

I thought this book was wonderfully satirical. It has an intriguing view of today's pop culture combined with capitalism. I enjoyed having the story told from different viewpoints, the girls' backgrounds revealed gradually. I loved the characters -some more than others at first, but by the end I loved all of the Beauty Queens and appreciated how each of their personality quirks added to the story.

Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn
Voices of Dragons

Amanda Alsterberg, March 21, 2012

I loved that Kay and Artegal's developing friendship and the rewards/consequences of such remain the focus throughout the story. I feel like a lot of YA authors put too much emphasis on romance, which in turn dilutes the rest of the plot. This story was so well-developed and I really enjoyed the simple, plausible explanation for the existence of dragons in a present-day setting.

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
Warm Bodies

Amanda Alsterberg, March 21, 2012

To anyone who likes to read science fiction, horror, or romance: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion is all of these things and it is fantastic! It's a zombie-romance told from the point of view of the zombie. Such a creative twist and incredibly well-written. I haven't even finished it and I would already recommend it to pretty much anyone who likes to read. Props to Isaac Marion for an amazing first novel! Can't wait to see what's next :-)
