    christine_horse's book review was featured in Pretties (Uglies Trilogy (Pb)).
    I've fallen in love with this series! It's action-packed, with shocking turns and endings. I'm just a bit confused as to what the climax is? You would think the point when she jumped would be the climax, as Scott Westerfeld spent a good portion of the book writing about the events and trials Tally and Zane had to overcome in order to escape. But then he spends another big portion on the reserve, and nothing that exciting happens in there, other than the big chase. The climax is supposed to be the main trial, the most exciting part of the book, and then the rest of it kind of unfolds and is kind of a recap, a smooth ending. And the end isn't supposed to be that long, either. I've certainly never heard anyone drawing it out for a third of the book. But then, maybe the jump wasn't the climax. If not, I feel like Scot Westerfeld could have done a better job in showing the climax, which is supposed to be the obvious, most exciting part, the part that had the author had spent the whole rest of the part building up. Other than that, I really love the book. Yeah, I've spent a whole paragraph writing about some critiques I have of Pretties, but I could write a LOT about how well-written the book is if I wanted. I highly advise this book; you'll be up all night!

    christine_horse's book review was featured in What's Left of Me (Hybrid Chronicles).
    I am in LOVE with this book. I can't WAIT to get the second one! This book is very well thought-out. I've seen lots of authors making their books go event after event after event, giving the character no time to process what's happening and making the character quite shallow, or making the character think the whole time with almost no events, making the book boring. Kat Zhang gives the character both time to process everything and time to take action (a LOT of action). I found myself staying up LATE at night reading his book. It hooked me; the title, the picture, the intro. And it only gets better in the middle. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves dystopian books and loves action.
