It was very well written and I found it poetic in a way that I can't explain, but I had to read it for school so that made it less enjoyable. But if you're a freshman and just want to get it out of the way, then do it.


I would recommend this to: Those who enjoy reading those books their english teachers pick for them.

Ahh, dystopian trilogy, we meet again. Only this time, instead of finding myself trapped inside the mind of a somewhat annoying teenage girl, we get to experience it from the male perspective!! I cannot tell you how much of a breath of fresh air that was. Aside from John Green, I don't get a whole lot of male perspective YA books, so yay! Not only that, but the plot was truly creative and engrossing. I honestly had no clue what was going to happen next and although the grievers freaked me out, I was ready for the second book as soon as I closed the e-cover. Also, the boys came up with their own cuss words. I thought it was funny and I pictured them as a 1960s greaser gang.


I would recommend this to: People who love teen fiction romance books like I do

Misao is a high school girl that can see things others can't monsters and spirits. But suddenly on her 16 birthday everything changes and who is that beautiful man that Misao seems to have feelings for? It was a good book, but not really my kind of book. Was interesting and somewhat creepy at the same time.


I would recommend this to: people who love books about spirits



Beast Master, Vol. 2
