Book #11: Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern

A nice coming of age story Into the Wild Nerd Yonder was short and to the point. I think that I might be a little too old to truly appreciate this one but I think she did a good job seeing things from a perspective of a teenager and I did like seeing Jessie go from being a push over to being a part of a group of people that made her feel at home. The book had an easy way about it and while I did not eagerly devour it as I have some of the books on this list I easily breezed through it. Had I wanted to I think I could have easily finished it in an afternoon.

Book #10: Rain of the Ghosts by Greg Weisman

This book almost read like a screen play. In fact it felt more like the first episode of a TV show than a completed novel. Was disappointed to find that the series is still in the works since I tend to binge read series from start to finish. Had I known that it was the start of what is likely to be a long series I may have skipped it over and waited it out. I am intrigued by the concept especially the powers that come from the Zemi and what other ghosts they will find along the way but I can’t go into too many details with out spoiling things. I do want to see where it is going and at some point I will definitely come back and continue this series. I think it might be better suited for a visual media instead of a book series though.

On a side note I am sorry for the delay in getting this review up. I just started a new job and the hours are a little crazy for me right night since I have issues with my commute but I will be picking up speed again soon. Still on track to reaching my goal.

Book #9: The Awakening of Miss Prim by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera

While I liked the writing style, the characters and the setting I found myself putting this book down quite a bit. I feel as though it is trying to make some big statement about faith or knowledge that has been lost in the modern age but there was nothing really substantial, profound, or unique about it. It didn’t help that over all there was very little plot to this book. It felt as though someone made a rough outline of just a page and then filled it in with quotes, descriptions of the setting, short history lessons, and casual conversation. There just wasn’t anything substantial there. I think that this is one book you will likely either love or hate.

Like I stated there are a number of good things about the book so ultimately I do like the author and I would like to read more from her but I hope that her future works have a little more plot to them. Considering that this is her first novel I am sure that there will be. She definitely has a lot of potential.
