Shiori is a young princess with six older brothers. Everything seems to be going fine until she stumbles on a dangerous secret that leaves her outcast from the palace and speechless along with her brothers who have been turned into cranes. As she searches for a way to break this spell, she goes through many adventures, some good and some bad. Even without a voice, princess Shiori goes through major character development and learns to use her actions to speak for her. There are lots of twists and turns coupled with fast-paced action that kept me reading nonstop. This is a dreamy fairytale with a sweet romance, a talking paper bird and dragons! What more could a reader want? And can I just say… THIS COVER IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!
First, Big thank you to Netgalley and Random House Publishing for an advanced copy of this Marvelous book, Rabbits by Terry Miles.
This story centers around a thirty-something adult named K. K does stand for an actual name but the reader unfortunately will not learn this bit of information although I have a few guesses. He has serious anxiety causing him to dissociate for periods of time, however, he also has an incredible knack for finding patterns in an amazing way. This idea of not only finding patterns but following them to new “clues” is the basis of the game.
This book is simply fascinating and mind-boggling to say the least. Full of intricate details that will lead the reader into all kinds of different directions. I thoroughly enjoyed this and highly recommend for fans of mind trip style books!
Olivia is in her senior year at Claflin Academy. She may be there on scholarship but she found her way into an elite group of girls called the Ivies. Their mission is to get into certain Ivy league Universities no matter what it takes. However, after one of the girls possibly took the Ivies leader’s, Avery, spot at Harvard things get scary.
This book is a perfect murder/mystery based on drama at a boarding school. I loved everything about this story, particularly how it kept me absolutely thrilled until the very end.
I definitely recommend this for all fans of murder/mystery stories that keep you guessing throughout the whole book!
Andy Weir went above and beyond on this one, and that’s saying a lot. After reading The Martian years ago, Andy Weir became one of my favorite authors. He has a way of writing about difficult concepts and abstract ideas while saying it in a way that makes complete sense. He explains scientific and mathematical concepts while addressing them and using them to push the story onward which is perfect for readers like me that do not easily grasp these kinds of things.
This book, Project Hail Mary, stayed humorous and light-hearted while dealing with complex world issues including moral issues. A man, who has no memory of who he is, wakes up in a strange place. After pulling from information he naturally knows and using the tools provided to him … there is only one explanation: He is in space! But where? And why? And how?
All these questions and more are answered throughout the novel and it’s incredible! I highly recommend this to fans of Andy Weir and fans of Scifi in general!
