The Revolution of Ivy: Review


rev of ivy front cover_for entangled_500

Beyond the fence. I am still alive. Barely.

My name is Ivy Westfall. I am sixteen years old and a traitor. Three months ago, I was forced to marry the president’s son, Bishop Lattimer―as all daughters of the losing side of the war are sold off in marriage to the sons of the winners. But I was different. I had a mission-to kill Bishop.

Instead, I fell in love with him.

Now I am an outcast, left to survive the brutal savagery of the lands outside of civilization. Yet even out here, there is hope. There is life beyond the fence. But I can’t outrun my past. For my actions have set off a treasonous chain of events in Westfall that will change all of our fates―especially Bishop’s.

And this time, it is not enough to just survive… (Amazon)

No one controls who we turn into but us.  

Review: *Sigh* Was it really a year ago that I read the first book? Looking back on my review of The Book of IvyI was totally in love with the novel. It’s always a sad day, when a follow-up book just doesn’t cut it. I wanted to love Ivy with the same fervor, yet the plot seemed lacking. I’m not even totally sure why…Some words come to mind. Rushed. Unsatisfied. Shit Ending…

The characters weren’t as appealing as the first book. Ivy wasn’t as kick ass. Bishop was lukewarm. I didn’t totally fall in love with Ash, yet I wanted to learn more about Caleb. The entire thing was “just okay”.

…And then the ending could have been SO much more. So instead of mourning the fallen characters (no spoilers) I will just mourn the potential this book had…

I’ve grown accustomed to the stars above my head as I sleep, the ache in my muscles as we walk the land. The freedom that comes with defining your world instead of letting it define you.

Happy Reading!

Sharp Objects: Review


Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming. (Amazon)

Sometimes if you let people do things to you, you’re really doing it to them.

Review: I chose Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects for my first October Scare Share, because her novels are more dark and thrilling than truly scary. Don’t judge me! I need to start off slow if I’m ever going to finish the month with dignity.

Okay. This was the kind of book that I constantly imagined an overcast looming in all of the scenes. The small-town created a setting that was sinister, disturbing, and uneasy. The narrator (Camille Preaker) and I seemed to be equally in the dark about the ongoings within the town and even her own family. Camille’s actions and thoughts were also enigmatic at best. She isn’t the normal, well put together heroine. She was just as messy and fucked up as the rest of us. I tried to build some trust with her throughout the novel, yet I just couldn’t.

Flynn does an incredible job playing with the idea of men vs. women killers. She challenges the entire female narrative. Could a woman not only murder a child, but then pull most of their teeth out? Such a gruesome crime for such a delicate creature…Most of us can’t fathom the thought. Flynn also touches base with mental illness in such a raw, real manner. The ugliness and hopelessness of the inner workings of such a mind, really struck me.

I would highly recommend Sharp Objects to both men and women (not young kids). Gillian Flynn takes readers on a psychological roller coaster that will leave any sane mind to question.

I am a cutter, you see. Also a snipper, a slicer, a carver, a jabber. I am a very special case. I have a purpose.
