The Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason <-I honestly did like this book. It had really cool steampunk elements along with the NIECE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES!!?! Awesome. It had some things (love triangles, novel to series syndrome, etc) that made it a little bit lacking, especially the ending. But all in all it's a really cool idea that was pretty well executed.

Roses - G.R. Mannering - Takes a well-known story and twists it into a fresh, unique tale with all the charm of the original. I was sucked into this well-imagined world of magic, war and beauty from the start. Using the story of Beauty and the Beast as guideline, Mannering puts her own spin on the tale as we follow Beauty’s journey in this fascinating world. The writing is truly gorgeous and such a pleasure to read.

Book Review of Divergent, by Veronica Roth #divergent #veronicaroth #insurgent #hungergames #thehungergames #tris #four #tobias #novel #fiction #books #reading #youngadult
Divergent, by Veronica Roth. If you need to get a dystopian fix, young adult series seem to be the thing now. This is the first of a trilogy, and certainly worth reading. If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll probably enjoy this series as well. About a 16 year old girl who lives in Chigaco - where the city is divided into 5 factions. When you are 16, you choose your faction, a choice that will define who and what you are for good. I really enjoyed this first book - interesting concept.
