Review: Traffick

Traffick Traffick by Ellen Hopkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I appreciate the way not everyone had a bright happy ending. Even those with hope still struggle through their choices. Such a sad disheartening topic to read through.

Review: Tilt

Tilt Tilt by Ellen Hopkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this story, however I was a little disappointed with the ending. It ended with so many questions left in my head, I guess that could be a good thing though. The character of Lucas is by far one of the most disturbing characters I've ever read. I really wanted to reach through the pages and smack him.

Review: Rumble

Rumble Rumble by Ellen Hopkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the way the characters developed over time in this book and the way Matt came to terms with his demons, however, I did not like the ending. I feel that Gus was such a small part in this story that to have that be the triggering event was not fair to Matt. I think he already started to believe in the good he had in his life and did not need the tragic event to push him forward.

Review: The Rest of Us Just Live Here

The Rest of Us Just Live Here The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So, I'm not sure what to say about this book. I definitely liked it, however there were times when I felt like an outsider. The dual story happening did come together at the end, but I wonder what the purpose was? I'm thinking a metaphor for life and how it is not always a guarantee or something like that. I like the relationship between Mikey and Jared best. It is quite complex, but such real friendship and it is nice to see that between two male characters.
