House of Salt and Sorrow

By: Erin A. Craig

Once there were 12 sisters living by the sea now after a series of increasingly tragic (and random) deaths there are only 8 left. 8 sisters who after years being shrouded in grief chase a myth through a hidden door that can apparently take them anywhere they want to go.

And life, at least at night, becomes an endless dance.

Wicked Saints

By: Emily A. Duncan

Going into this book I had heard two things 1. that it was a villain love story and 2. that the author had been involved with the Grisha Trilogy fandom. I didn’t pursue those things too deeply as both sounded interesting to me. Which now does lead me to the question can you know too much about a book before going into it?

Unfortunately the relationship in this book gave me some serious Mal flashbacks and I hated him and wasn’t big on that relationship so they were painful flashbacks.

Grade: B -ish

So how about another Green brother?

Hank Green’s first book is about a twenty-something woman called April May who stumbles over a new “sculpture” in New York that she dubs Carl, uploads a video and becomes the center of this great, vast and mysterious world-wide phenomenon. What are the Carls? How did they get where they are? Who put them there?
