Sophie Reviews Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Having read The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth, I decided to give Carve the Mark a read. This is an entertaining story with fantastically dramatic and flawed characters. Even better is that every person living in this universe develops powers when they reach puberty, and some are favored by fate. But all is not well on one planet. Cyra and Akos live on the same planet, but in totally different worlds. With their nations constantly at war, the two seem like an unlikely pair. But fate, it seems, has thrust them together. Sacrifices are made, and lines are crossed in this story.

Author Anniversary: Haruki Murakami

Japan's premier novelist was born on January 12, 1949 in the city of Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture. Murakami began writing at the age of 29 after attending a baseball game. The story goes that an American came up to bat, hit a double, and Murakami realized he could write a novel. Here's how Murakami describes himself before that fateful moment: "I didn't write anything. I was just one of those ordinary people. I was running a jazz club, and I didn't create anything at all." 

Sophie Reviews The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

I honestly did not know what to expect with this book, but the premise piqued my interest right away. Irene is a librarian, but not just any librarian. She is a spy for The Invisible Library, an entity that exists between worlds. Her job is to go out to alternate worlds and collect books. And sometimes the missions can get more than a little dangerous.

Sophie Reviews - Scythe by Neal Shusterman

The premise is the reason I picked this book to read, and the story is why I couldn’t put it down. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading Scythe. Having never read anything from Shusterman in the past, I prepared myself to be jarred by a different writing style than I’m accustomed to. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.
