The Whispering Dark


Title: The Whispering Dark

Author: Kelly Andrew

Publisher: Scholastic Press
ISBN: 9781338809473
Thoughts: There was an interesting concept here, but the story was riddled with holes, either hastily patched or just plain ignored, and the characters were unevenly developed and often lacking likeable features.

Rating: 2/5

Beasts of a Little Land


Title: Beasts of a Little Land

Author: Juhae Kim

Publisher: HarperAudio
ISBN: 9780063093607
Thoughts: With a story that takes place overtime, there are often many characters who are somewhat difficult to keep straight, as happens here, but what made it a little more difficult were some of the creative choices the author made that I could not follow as I could not see the reason, which may be because I was listening to the audiobook.

Rating: 2/5

Thoughts: Very fun concept, but the whole school project story line, which at first felt like it could be very relevant, but the proved otherwise, actually hindered the pacing.
