Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman review

Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Reviewed by Sarah

Published by  HarperCollins on September 18, 2008

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy

Pages: 325

Format: Hardback

Source: Library

goodreads   amazon  Barnes and Noble

I would give this book 4 for a review.

Summary!

Neil Gaiman’s perennial favorite, The Graveyard Book, has sold more than one million copies and is the only novel to win both the Newbery Medal and the Carnegie Medal.

Bod is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place—he’s the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians’ time as well as their ghostly teachings—such as the ability to Fade so mere mortals cannot see him.

Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead?

The Graveyard Book is the winner of the Newbery Medal, the Carnegie Medal, the Hugo Award for best novel, the Locus Award for Young Adult novel, the American Bookseller Association’s “Best Indie Young Adult Buzz Book,” a Horn Book Honor, and Audio Book of the Year.

My Thoughts:

This book was so good and not what I was expecting. I think I was expecting a scary read as it is in a grave yard. It was very good but not scary. It was a wonderful coming of age story of a boy raised by the ghosts of the graveyard. Each chapter introduces you to new characters. Nobody or Bod is a great main character, who is mixture of curiosity and bravery witch gets him into a few scrapes. The other characters in this book are great with there own oddities being they are from all different centuries. I really enjoyed the book. I have read other Neil Gaiman books and enjoyed all of them. This is no exception.

Genres:  Adult, contemporary

Pages: 449

Format: Audiobook

I would give this book 4 for a review.

Summary!

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle—from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she’s desperate to make her dad proud.

Then, just as she’s finding her feet—not to mention a possible new romance—the worst happens. Demeter fires Katie. Shattered but determined to stay positive, Katie retreats to her family’s farm in Somerset to help them set up a vacation business. London has never seemed so far away—until Demeter unexpectedly turns up as a guest. Secrets are spilled and relationships rejiggered, and as the stakes for Katie’s future get higher, she must question her own assumptions about what makes for a truly meaningful life.

Sophie Kinsella is celebrated for her vibrant, relatable characters and her great storytelling gifts. Now she returns with all of the wit, warmth, and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her bestsellers to spin this fresh, modern story about presenting the perfect life when the reality is far from the truth.

 

My Thoughts:

I listened to this on audio and I loved this book. This is the first Sophie Kinsella and i will definitely will be picking up more of her books in the future. This was a fun easy, quirky, light-hearted read, that I enjoyed from start to finish. I liked all of the main characters in the book and liked the characters had their own quirks and flaws. I found Katie very relatable and enjoyed the high jinx she became involved in. I laughed many times throughout this book while commuting. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a light-hearted rom-com that will make you smile the whole time you are reading/listening to it.

 

Artemis by Andy Weir review

Artemis by Andy Weir

Genres:  Adult, Science Fiction

Pages:320

Format: Arc

Goodreads  amazon  Barnes and Noble

I would give this book 4 for a review.

Summary!

Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

My Thoughts:

Overall i enjoyed this book. I was impressed by the world building as always. i really loved the main character and the interesting structure of the novel between present time lines and also letters explaining the past. I loved the excitment of the heist. The science stuff did go over my heads at many points. But it was a fun read!

Pages: 256

Format: Paperback

I would give this book 5 for a review.

Summary!

Willow is back in Sunnydale, but she’s terrified: She knows her powers will be needed soon, but she’s afraid that if she uses them, it’s back to being the Big Bad. She can feel something strange happening, but the other Scoobies don’t seem to notice. Everybody’s dealing with their own issues — Buffy’s got a new crush, Dawn and Buffy have been bickering, and Xander’s intent on getting Willow to use her magicks again.

Willow’s instincts are right on. A wolf in sheep’s clothing has set off a series of freakish events: rivers running with blood, flash storms, and the arrival of an unbelievable supernatural being. The apocalypse has begun. While the world falls to pieces around them, the Scoobies — including Giles, back from England — have to decide what is most important to them. There’s one last hope: a secret spell with dangerous side effects. But is Willow ready to use her powers?

My Thoughts:

I loved this willow focused story. It is set right after the eps. in season 7 season of buffy called same time same place. I think this has become my favorite buffy tie in novel. I have always enjoyed willow and zander friendship and this book was prefect. I also love the storyline in this book so much! Very happy I read it!

The Heartbreak Messenger: Book Review

The Heartbreak Messenger  by Alexander Vance

Published by  Square Fish; Reprint edition on June 3, 2014

Genres: Middle Grade

Pages:304

Format: Paper Back

Source: The Strand

amazon  Goodreads  Barnes and Noble

I would give this book 3.5  for a review.

Summary!

Twelve-year-old Quentin never asked to be the Heartbreak Messenger. It just kind of happened, and he can’t let a golden opportunity pass him by. The valuable communication service he offers is simple: He delivers breakup messages. For a small fee, he will deliver that message to your soon-to-be ex. If you order the deluxe package, he’ll even throw in some flowers and a box of chocolates. You know . . . to soften the blow.

At first, Quentin’s entrepreneurial brainchild is surprisingly successful, which is great, because he suspects his mom, who works as a car mechanic, is worried about money. But as he interacts with clients, message recipients, and his best friend, Abigail, it doesn’t take long for him to wonder if his own heart will remain intact. In The Heartbreak Messenger by Alexander Vance, Quentin discovers that the game of love and the emotions that go with it are as complicated as they come―even for an almost-innocent bystander.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. I found it very cute. I thought for a middle grade book it was very well done and did not have over dramatic characters. I really loved the premise and the characters. It was a tad predicable but a fun read over like 2 days. I really hoped there was sequel but alas not yet. Overall such a cute read and would rec for a feb. read.

 

 

Wild Beauty: October Owl crate: Non-Spoiler Review

Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore

Published by   Feiwel & Friends (October 3, 2017)

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy

Pages:320

Format: Hard Back

Amazon   Barnes and Noble   Goodreads

Goodreads

I would give this book 3.5 for a review.

Summary:

Love grows such strange things.

Anna-Marie McLemore’s debut novel The Weight of Feathers garnered fabulous reviews and was a finalist for the prestigious YALSA Morris Award, and her second novel, When the Moon was Ours, was longlisted for the 2016 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature. Now, in Wild Beauty, McLemore introduces a spellbinding setting and two characters who are drawn together by fate—and pulled apart by reality.

For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishings, a strange boy appears in the gardens.

The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family.

My Thoughts:

I loved the writing of this book. It was so lovely and it captured me from page one. It is very detailed thought and at points i got lost in the details. I thought the world building was crafted so well and I could not see the twists and turns in the story coming. I felt like the pacing was much slower then I wanted it to be but the characters kept me engaged and overall i really enjoyed it. I hope to read more by this author soon!
