On the night Malcom and Maud Angel are murdered, Tandy Angel knows just three things: She was the last person to see her parents alive. The police have no suspects besides Tandy and her three siblings. She can’t trust anyone — maybe not even herself.

Having grown up under Malcom and Maud’s intense perfectionist demands, no cild comes away undamaged. Tandy decides that she will have to clear the family name, but digging deeper into her parents affairs is a dangerous– and revealing– game. Who knows what the Angels are truly capable of?

 

My Opinion

Tandoori (Tandy) Angel

Tandy is a very strong character. She is strong willed and loves to be right. She is super smart and great at pretty much everything. But she has mysterious gaps in her memory that prevent her from knowing some information she wants access to.

Harrison(Harry) Angel

Harry was also a great character. He seemed a little whiny in the beginning but he definitely got better.Harry is Tandy’s twin, he was the disappointment of the family due to being emotionally broken as  Malcom and Maud described it. He is a musical prodigy and great artist.

Hugo Angel

Hugo is Tandy’s 10 year old brother who has the strength of a grown man. He isn’t afraid of anything which isn’t always good in his case.

 

The plot was well developed and easily followed. Overall this was a very good book. The only thing I found disappointing was the ending, but the rest of the book was so good I don’t really care in the grand scheme of things. Can’t wait to read the next book Confessions the Private School Murders!

Book Blurb

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life- and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it was  what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premier.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away form the fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they are going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside he comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her Dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

My Opinion

Cath

I love Cath she was unlike most of the female protagonists I have read about. Cath is shy, introverted, and has low self esteem. She constantly tries to keep her friends away from Wren so they don’t leave her for her twin. I think Cath can easily be related to for many people and that is probably the reason I love her so much.

Wren

Wren is the polar opposite of Cath. Wren is self confident, outgoing, and has a bit of an ego. She is constantly out drinking and has to find a way to reel herself back into control. Once Wren settles down her relationship with Cath improves a lot.

Levi

Levi is one of the people Cath meets in college. He is polite, smart, and extroverted. Levi is ALWAYS smiling like its the natural thing to do . I think of Levi as a sun personally. We need the sun in order to be warm and comfortable. That is exactly what Levi does for Cath. He warms Cath up to many situations and helps her to feel comfortable when she otherwise wouldn’t.

The characters where fabulous and seemed like they could easily have been based off of real people. The plot was also good. I personally can’t wait to get my hands on the spin off Carry On a stand alone about Simon Snow and Baz Pitch.

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

Another amazing book uncle rick good job. The worst part of the book was how annoying and vain Apollo could be at the beginning of the book, but he was a god and then was suddenly a mortal. I mean its like getting promised a pet but receiving a toy. This book was different from the other PJO books because it was only gotten from Apollo’s point of view. The plot twist were also good. I also enjoyed the character development i mean Apollo went from a whining god concerned with no one but himself and at the end he truly cared for everyone at camp half-blood.  The novel took place at camp half-blood in the present.

Short Summary: The novel is about the trials Apollo must face so that he may return to Olympus. Meg McCaffrey claims Apollo’s service so he must do everything she tells him to. Meg helps him on his journey to save the Oracles.

No Summit Out of Sight by Jordan Romero

Pretty good over all. It was definitely an easy read, but I don’t think the book was written to  challenge us, I think it was written to inspire us to reach for our goals. It also felt as if they were advertising the gear they used at times. But the fact that a person so young could accomplish a goal so large. The story takes place around the world in the past couple years.

Short Summary: The book No Summit Out of Sight is about a nine year old boy who wants to climb the seven summits (plus one). Jordan only sets out to make it to the top of the eight summits but achieves much more. Many people found his goal impossible, but Jordan pushed himself and proved them wrong.

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

Really good book overall. The book started out slowly but picked up as I went along. Its cool that the prey (homosapians) were hunting the predators (Anthropophagi). Tonight the foxes hunt the hounds:)-Fall Out Boy Young Volcanoes. There was defiantly a lot going on during the time and everyone was busy. The novel takes pace in a little town called New Jerusalem in 1888. The setting is important to the book because its a small town and most people don’t trust the Doctor because of his father’s actions, so news travels fast.

Summary: The novel is about a twelve year old boy named Will Henry, who was taken in by his fathers employer when both his parents died in a fire. Erasmus Gray knocked on the Monstrumlolgist’s door bringing a dead Anthropophagi which are native to Africa. Will Henry and the Monstrumologist must track down and kill the Anthropophagi pod before they strike and kill again.
