The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

That’s a really long title. This is a really long post. It was going to be a book review but it turned into more of a book report. You’ve been warned.

I recently finished The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. It’s a YA historical adventure fiction story, but written with modern-style prose which makes it more digestible for today’s average teenager.

Mini YA Book Reviews

My book reviews are usually a bit longer than this, and I’ve never done more than one at once before. This means I don’t go as into depth for any of the books, but I give you my most important thoughts for each. If you have any questions about the books here or want to start a discussion, I can go more into depth in the comments.

All My Friends Are Superheroes

In my last year of university, my dissertation tutor wanted me to read this book. While it sounded interesting enough, the only way I could get a copy was by buying it online and I was trying not to buy any books because my suitcase was heavy enough as it was. I think I lost marks for not reading this book.

Well, I’ve read it now.

Red Queen

No Spoilers.

red_queen_book_coverI’ve been following Victoria Aveyard on Twitter for a while now. While I’ve found her book blurb intriguing enough, I was never in any rush to read it. It sounded unoriginal to me. A world where some people have silver blood and superpowers, and the rest are just plain, red-blooded humans who are seen and treated as inferior. But then there’s a girl who’s red-blooded and has superpowers and everyone goes crazy from the confusion.
