YA Audiobook Review

Abandon (Abandon Trilogy, #1)Abandon by Meg Cabot

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Slightly disappointed in Abandon. The premise is definitely a good idea and I would like to read the rest of the trilogy just to see what happens (and hope it gets a little bit better.) I wasn’t crazy about the main character – I felt like she was intended to be something she wasn’t – if that makes any sense at all. There were some plot tie-ins and connections made that felt a bit stretched. However, I did listen to this on CD so I always feel like if I didn’t like a book on CD, maybe it would have been better to read. Sometimes the voice or even the pronunciation of certain words might turn me off.

At any rate, still willing to give the rest of them a try.

YA Book Review

The Future of UsThe Future of Us by Jay Asher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Told from alternating points of view by the two main characters, this is a cute story that really makes you think. How do the things we do now affect what happens to us in the future? And what if all you had to do to check your future was click “refresh”?

Another thing it will make you think about?

Just how much you reveal in your Facebook status…..
