ARC Book Review: Dualed by Elsie Chapman

ARC Book Review: Dualed by Elsie Chapman

Book Reviews | February 16, 2013

Dualed is a debut novel with an intriguing dystopian concept. Every person has an Alt – a genetically identical twin – and they must prove their worth to the community by eliminating that Alt before they turn 20. Only upon “completion” do the citizens finally get to live a peaceful life. That sounds epic, right? Sadly, I was […]

Book Review: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Book Reviews | February 9, 2013

I first read Shatter Me about a year ago. One of the first books I read after I got back into reading. I loved it so, so much. But it was before my reviewing time, so I never posted about my love for it. This review thus also works as my endorsement for that book. I digress, Unravel […]

Ultimately, though, it’s not too memorable. The main character, Colin, is a washed up child prodigy, scared he has passed his peak and will not be able to leave […]
