February wrap up

Hi guys, here is my February wrap up. I am a little disappointed at the amount of books I have read but alas.

city-of-bones Boundless one vision-in-silver locke-and-key  chew

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare | 3 stars | 
This was a re-read for me. I wanted to see if I liked it just as much as the first time. Sadly I have to say I did not. I can’t exactly say what made me like it less though.

Boundless by Cynthia Hand | 4 stars |
I found this to be a great book. The beginning was a bit slow, that’s why I didn’t give it the full 5 stars. Boundless is beautifully written, and filled with humor, depth, and emotion. It also has one of the better love triangles. The characters are great and the plot of this one was wonderful. There is a lot more suspense going on because Clara has not one, but two visions. One of which shows that  lives are on the line.

One by Sarah Crossan | 5 stars | Review
I absolutely loved this books. Everything about it was just wonderful. It was fast-paced, heartbreaking and insightful. The writing style was gorgeous, its written in verse. The characters were amazing. I loved both Grace and Tippi. Also loved their friends Yasmeen and Jon. Just everybody was well fleshed out as a character. Last but certainly not least the plot was heartbreakingly beautiful.

Vision is Silver by Anne Bishop | 3 stars | Review
I described this book as slow moving, tragic and real. The fact that is was slow moving drove me nuts. Their also wasn’t a lot of action in this book, which was a shame. I would have loved a bit more action. In spite of these two things it still was a good read since it felt real. Anne Bishop knows how to build a world which is realistic and in parts true to life.

Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill | 4 stars | Review
I truly enjoyed this graphic novel. It had lots going for it. A great cast of characters, A beautiful writing style, A graphic design that fit the writing perfectly and a terrific plot. Why the 4 stars then? What I didn’t like where the shifting of timelines in this graphic novel. It confused me a lot.

Chew, Vol. 1: Taster’s Choice by John Layman | 5 stars | Review
I really enjoyed this graphic novel. The story was unique, the characters were enjoyable, there was great flow to the action in between the various chapters, and the artwork had quality. What else is there to say.
