Flash Reviews

Quick bits about books I've read. 

Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Flash: A new way of looking at time travel that winds perfectly into our world. Emerson is such a snarky character and you can relate to the way she builds walls around herself. The litteral burning between Emerson and Michael was tangible.
Overall: A fantastical, brain-sucking, time traveling, worth reading adventure that will stick in your heart and mind.

Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children by Randsom Riggs
Flash: This book had everything: Magic, time travel, little children with powers, and a love story. Fair Warning: This is not a book for the faint of heart. I'm pretty sure I had nightmares about this book... at least I woke up thinking a towel was attacking me. Take that how you will.
Overall: I just fell in love with the storyline and the way it was presented, creepy pictures and all.

Avalon High by Meg Cabot
Flash: A modern retelling of King Arther? How could I not read this? Elaine, or El for short, was such a fun character to slip into plus Meg has a way of writing that just sucks you in.
Overall: I can't describe it but I loved this book. It was perfect from her floating summer days to the twisty anxious ending. A book in it's own category of awesome.

-Kare Out- 


  1. I watched the movie Avalon High. I hadn't realized it was a Meg Cabot book.

    Oh, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children was definitely strange and creepy. A wonderful plot line though.

    1. I did too! They are very different stories though.

  2. Glad you have been reading some great books lately. I still need to read Hourglass! I have had a copy since it came out and I still haven't had the chance to read it.

    Thanks for the great mini reviews.

  3. I totally love Miss Peregrine's too and I need to read Hourglass really badly! I'm glad you found it 'brain sucking!' :)
    I've always looked over Avalon High, but now it's added to the tbr pile and I'm excited to read it! I LOVE these 'Flash Reviews' Kare, brilliant! :)


Let me know what you think was an epic win or an epic fail, or if you feel like it make robot sound like beep beep boo bop. Really I could careless just keep it clean.
