Artemis

Weir, Andy
Artemis is a city on the moon, and consists of several bubbles. The main character is a woman I thought was a seventeen-year-old girl for most of the book. She nearly kills everyone, but (SPOILER) ends up saving everyone from her almost killing them. Not a complicated story, and maybe the writing could be a little more better, but it did the job and was fun to read. I may even give The Martian a try!

The Serpent Sea

Wells, Martha
The Books of the Raksura #2, I read somewhere. Good story, I read it over several days, with one massive marathon session on the last days. I only noticed one "raised eyebrow"...

Quote:

Moon had been consort to Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud Court, for eleven days and nobody had tried to kill him yet. He thought is was going well so far.--pg. 9

Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Black Mirror

Werlin, Nancy
I've been captivated by the cover of this book for several years, and so decided to finally read it. I found it alternating sad, funny, poignant, threatening, and depressing. I liked it, but it seems maybe a little more YA than middle school. I guess the period of pot smoking was important to the story, but I wished the author had left out the one f**K, three bi**chs, four d**kheads, one g*dd*m*ed, and maybe the one kiss*ss. And it seemed the protagonist was having her period every other chapter.

Words I Had To Look Up:

Boucle -- Heavy looped pile. Refers to a sweater, in this case. Pg. 102

Quote:

Oh. My. God.
Ms. Wiles had been right.
I was in love with a small-time prep school drug dealer.

Typo:

...injected ... with an overdose of heroine. -- pg. 234
