Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

As college students, Victor Vale and Eliot Cardale were close friends with a competitive streak and an undercurrent of disapproval and frustration. They were friends more because they complemented each other in ways no one else could rather than any real affection. For their culminating project, they focus their research on EOs, ExtraOrdinary people with superhuman abilities. Most people are sceptical of the existence of EOs, and so are they until the science starts to make sense. Soon enough, they unlock the secret to becoming an EO, and everything goes south. By the time they are both powered up, a bunch of people are dead, Eli has disappeared, and Victor is locked away in prison.

This book was straight up addicting and I loved every minute of it!

Blogmas Day 11: Beauty Sleep by Kathryn Evans

Blogmas Day 11: Beauty Sleep by Kathryn Evans

The book is a right mix of a sleeping beauty meets black mirror retelling, and that is so spot on because it gave off that vibe. It is so creepy, and I loved the tone of the book. There are so many small details that gave me actual chills. It’s a page-turner and so realistic.

Blogmas Day 10: Song for a Whale by Lynne Kelly

Blogmas Day 10: Song for a Whale by Lynne Kelly

In Song for a Whale, 12-year-old Iris becomes obsessed with a whale whose song is so off-pitch he’s become unrecognizable to other whales. She feels compelled to communicate with this whale and to let him know that he’s not alone. In fact, she’s willing to break family and school rules to reach him. She knows how horrible it feels to be misunderstood. As a deaf kid in a hearing world, she understands being an outsider very well. Even her parents (especially her father) avoid accepting her for who she is. But Iris is determined to reach out to a misfit from another species to let him know that someone understands his loneliness, even if she’s only human.
