Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature: Finished. Will be reviewing soon. Quite liked it, actually.
Ida B.: I'll admit it, I skipped ahead. And I saw the surprise twist. But I looked quickly away before I was too contaminated so I could keep reading. I'm about half done, but have put it down for almost 2 weeks.
Queen of Babble: Two chapters in. Sounds engaging, but the main character may end up being annoying...we'll have to wait and see.
The Astonishing Life of Ocatvian Nothing: Half done. But. Um. All I can think about is that letter by a 13 year old boy about what he wants to see in publishing:
To all writers of books aimed at teenage boys, I beg you: please use only modern language, no matter what time period or universe your book takes place in.The Reincarnationist: I suspect this book may be all about sex. Time will tell. About 4 chapters in, but may not bother with the rest, despite the high recommendations that came with it.
The People of Sparks: So far (about 3/4 way through) not as good as Ember. It feels very much like a transition book, and while there have been some good moments, I fluctuate between waiting for something to happen and feeling as if I'm being preached at.
