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?

Katherine Reviews: Furyborn

Furyborn is the latest fantasy novel by Claire Legrand.  When I first saw the blurb for this book I added it to my TBR and scooped up a copy as quickly as possible.

"Two queens will rise. One with the power to save the world. One with the power to destroy it."

That’s all I needed to hear to know I had to read this book!  

The story is told in two points of view, that of Rielle Dardenne and Eliana Ferracora, two fierce women living more than a thousand years apart.  

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.
