I've decided to move my blog. I will no longer be posting here but instead will be on http://where-is-wallis.blogspot.co.uk/.
There are a few reasons for this move but the main one is just ease. Because this google account is unconnected to all my other google sites I had to keep signing in and out and I just forgot to maintain this blog but now I have just decided to make a new one that I will keep on top of because it's not a hassle to sign in to. It also has the same name as my YouTube which is just easier for people to find me on multiple sites.
This new blog may not be entirely books, there may be some other things going on there as well but they won't be boring things I promise.
I'd really love it if you could check it out!

This book is told from both Noah and Echo's point of view. This alternating between the two main characters really helps you to understand them and their problems better. You really connect to them because you see what they think and feel about things. The other characters too felt like they had personalities and weren't just there to help or hinder Noah and Echo, they were all flawed but in ways that felt real. Never did this book become too typically teenage to the point where you want to roll your eyes, throw it at the floor and walk off because it's given you a headache and made you sick to death of anyone under 20 (which I myself am not so that's irony for you). It felt just right. Yes these characters are hormonal, slightly naive teenagers but they're also smart, determined and they don't always sit around and sulk when there is a problem, they do something about it.

"Accidents ambush the unsuspecting, often violently, just like love."
I am 160 pages into this novel so far and I'm really loving it. It is twisted and beautiful all at once. I am hoping it doesn't go south like some promising books have for me recently.

Glow is the story of Waverly. Waverly is the oldest girl in her generation, the first generation of children to be born on board the Empyrean, after a bout of infertility. Their ship and another just like it, the New Horizon, have left Earth for a new planet the believe they can colonize after Earth’s resources start running out and it becomes an unbearable place to live. However something goes wrong.
In the heart of a nebula New Horizon, which should be so far ahead of the Empyrean that they can’t see it, has slowed down enough so that they are almost side along with Waverly’s ship. Crew members from the New Horizon board the Empyrean and quickly everything goes down hill. The girls are taken from their homes, most of the adults are killed, the Empyrean is sabotaged and the boys are left to cope by themselves without a clue. Amidst chaos and fear Waverly must learn that power corrupts, everyone has secrets and but most importantly; how to find a way back home
Today I thought I’d write a review for Glow. Both from the cover and the genre of this book I thought it would be painfully like Across the Universe, which I did not like, and so I was incredibly apprehensive about reading this at first. In fact I didn’t even bother to check out the description, so turned off by the idea it might compare to a book that had disappointed me as much as Across the Universe had done.
