Five on Friday: Book Nerd Problems

This Friday I feel like sharing a few book nerd problems I have been having lately. Can you relate?

1. When you just finished reading a pretty good book but can't seem to remember a single freaking thing about it. (This makes it very hard when you want to write a review about the book or discuss it in class.)

2. When your puppy decides to nibble on the book you are reading. (He doesn't normally cause any real damage, but one time he did rip off a corner of a book jacket. Good thing he is adorable.)

3. When you are not in the mood to read any of the books you have... and you have a lot.

4. When you really want to a buy a new book that just came out but you also already asked for it for your birthday.

5. When you realize that you accidentally left your favorite bookmark in a library book you returned weeks ago... and it wasn't a book from your home library so it is long gone.

Mini Reviews: The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly, Renegades, & Endangered

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes
+ Add to Goodreads

A dark and intense read, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is not for the faint of heart. As a young girl, Minnow is brought along with her family to live in a cult. As she grows older she starts questioning the ways of their leader and suffers extreme punishments for her curiosity, leading her to flee. Once she escapes, her community burns to the ground, their leader is found dead, and Minnow finds herself in prison. Minnow is an interesting main character who struggles with figuring out who she really is while telling readers her story of how she became in prison, what happened while she was growing up in the cult, and the death of their leader. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is a well written but disturbing novel that brings something new to the genre.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer
+ Add to Goodreads

I have loved everything Marissa Meyer has written, and Renegades is no exception. Nova, also known as Nightmare, is seeking revenge against the Renegades. Adrian, also known as Sketch, is a Renegade seeking justice. When their lives collide things get interesting. Filled with an abundance of interesting superheroes and villains that prove life is not always so black and white, Renegades also offers a whole lot of fun action scenes and surprises. This book is perfect for both the avid superhero fan and the average fan.

Endangered by Eliot Schrefer
+ Add to Goodreads

Endangered will make you smile, cringe, and cry. It's both uplifting and heartbreaking, and I loved it. Endangered is a great choice for readers who enjoy cute animals and/or an intense page-turning survival story. For whatever reason, I was hesitant to read this book, but I'm really glad that I was forced to read it for class. I was blown away. It opens readers' eyes to the hard life and strength of the people living in the Congo while also showing that the lives of the adorable endangered Bonobo monkeys are precious as well.
