Hey y'all!I'm feeling much better and exams ended yesterday so I'm ready to end my break. Now I'm sure a lot of loggers with siblings have the same situation. My sister loves borrowing my books. It's great because i love giving her recommendations and sometimes she'll tell me if a book is worth reading. She begged me to try to get a hold of certain books and I told her she had to review them then. These were formed by me asking her questions about the books (she didn't want to sit down and write a review) and compiling what she said. Comments by me will be in red. These is her first time reviewing so she's getting a feel for the entire thing. Sorry if they're a little short, but I had to coax her thoughts out of her!Harbinger by Sara Williams Etienne

It was good and I liked it because it had a very different plotline than other books. It had different ideas and a culture part that was unique. I don't remember the main character very much (my sister read this book a month ago). I was kind of confused by the ending and I didn't know what was going on. There wasn't much that I remember from it. I liked the supporting characters and they had great personality that spiced up the book. I thought it was normal at first but then the dystopian aspects started getting more into the book. The cover is pretty. It wasn't very much like Beautiful Creatures. The description on the cover was pretty spot on though. The mystery was the best part of the book though. The action was great. I liked it even though it was confusing. It was a refreshing read.A Million Suns by Beth Revis (and partially Across the Universe)

It was so good! I LOVE this series. I was obsessed with it. I read the first one and this one on the same day and couldn't put it down. I liked the environment but it made me claustrophobic if you think about it. I don't know how the characters could have done it....creepy! Amy was nice. Her intelligence made her stand out and she had a ton of great qualities that made me glad that she was narrating. She was one of the best parts of the series. I felt bad about the antagonist Eldest because he thought he was doing the right thing for the ship but he was really making things worse and he was conflicted. I liked Elder because he was a good leader. I loved the ending of the first one. It wasn't that much of an action book but was more suspenseful. It was more feeling than action. I loved it and I really want to read the third one now!
