Pale by Chris Wooding
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this in an hour which I think is awesome. The book is only 72 pages
but feels like a full novel. Note that this is not a SHORT STORY people need to research what
a short story is before they say something. This is a NOVELLA. I hated the main character, but in a good way. He was supposed to come off as a mean kid and his friends were worse. To me, this story was very unique and I enjoyed it. It was interesting to see the Pales treated like most Gay and Black citizens are treated, segregation is a bitch. I would say that if a kid read this they'd learn a lesson and I like that about this book. So check it out if you get the chance. One thing I really like is that the book will be available in September in Paperback and eBook form. It's a short book but I think even if a book is under 100 pages it should be in paperback too. That way everyone can enjoy it.
Thanks to NetGalley for this e-Arc.
and thanks to Rachel for letting me know where to get this book!

The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a very good book. I really liked the main character "Eiza". She wasn't a Bella Swan
and she was a very strong character. I loved her. The rest of the characters, I liked as well and grew attached to some, which hasn't happened in a while.
"The Last Princess" is a good read, there was nothing terribly complicated and there wasn't
over detailing. It reminded me of what I love most about writing, the simple
factor. Where you can say just a few things and the reader will instantly be drawn into
the world the author has built. Not taking ten pages to tell how the world
went to shit and what a fucking bedroom looks like. I love being able to imagine things myself. I enjoyed the story line and the love interest "Wesley" was good, he wasn't like most love interests we see in YA today. I really want to read the sequel when it comes out and I'll be buying a copy of this
for myself, since I got it from the library.
Would I recommend this? FUCK YES.
