Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027

The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June

The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, & June - Robin Benway When picking up an author’s follow-up to their breakout novel, I really try not to compare it with their earlier work. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with this. It lacks the fizzle and fun that Audrey, Wait! had to it. The characters were flat and clichéd, as were the choice for their powers, (the ignored middle child turns invisible. Like that hasn’t been done before), and I didn’t get a sense of growth from them. Also, the big, huge event everyone freaks out doesn’t really linger over the plot and seems really contrived. A lot of the book felt like an introduction to the sisters’ lives, but I think the book could have been written so much better.
