Michelle Reviews: An Absolutely Remarkable Thing

Hank Green has written a novel about science, puzzles, and being an internet celebrity, and it is everything you are expecting! An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is Contact meets Ready Player One, but it manages to be more fun than the former and more insightful than the latter. Average human April May discovers and vlogs about an interesting art piece that shows up in NYC. Her life quickly goes off the rails as the entire world questions just what these beings that April has dubbed 'Carls' represent. What threat or opportunity do they pose?

CHB and the Great American Read: #DonIgnatius

I am deeply fascinated by the choices on the Great American Read list. Some of my favorite books are listed. There are books on this list that I genuinely believe to be among the greatest novels of all time. Books that hold a deep personal relevance for me. Books that I've never read. And a few that I never thought I would! As I read through the list, I knew I would want to challenge myself this summer to conquer a few of my personal unread books.

Michelle and Sophie Review: Children of Blood and Bone

Sophie and I recently read and LOVED the same book, so I thought it was only fair for us to jointly review it. Our enthusiasm for Children of Blood and Bone knows no bounds!

M: Holy world building, Batman! This book is fantastic. The world Adeyemi has created is so detailed, the characters are wonderful, even the animals are amazingly described. Add to that the fact that this is a clear allegory to our times and then sit back in awe that this future YA classic is a debut.
