So nerd to nerd, I can unleash my I sheer excitement about this new development in the Dewey-A-Day project. I found a solution to last week’s quandary! Let the Fiction title exploraration begin!!!!
I found this site, it allows you to generate a random identity, name, occupation, address, the works–if you’re into that sort of thing. Ok, so I:
- went to the site
- got a name
- went to the library’s catalog
- did a search for the name in the fiction section
- chose the 1st title on the list
And that brings us to….
Summary (Booklist Review):
Kelley and Sonny are caught in the middle of a war involving fae and Greenmen, and only their faith and trust in each other can offset the treachery that surrounds them. This book brings the trilogy that started with Wondrous Strange and Darklight (both 2009) to a careening, crashing, chaotic conclusion. Livingston’s artistry at creating imaginary worlds that exist side by side with contemporary New York remains strong, and while it isn’t a good place to enter the series, fans of the first two entries will gulp this one down with gusto.
I took one look at the cover and thought: Twilight knock off. I read a few passages. From what I can glean there’s some time travel or flash backs involved. There was mention of a place called Avalon (isn’t there always?), some maidens and leprecauns for good measure. I’m not being fair. This could actually be a good read. I’m just not keen on anything teen (funky fresh rhyme alert!!!! :D) and this is a teen read. Hope the lottery doesn’t yield too many more.
**CURMUDGEON RANT. STOP HERE IF YOU ARE A TEEN OR IF YOU OWN/LOVE ONE**
Teens are good for one thing, self centered-ness and these books reinforce the notion that the world does indeed revolve around them. You’re a fair maiden, the fate of the world centers on whether your boyfriend is a wolf or a blood sucker with sparkly skin! Choose wisely!
Also I’d like to send a telegram to 1990:
Sorry mom! My teenager-ness made me do it! STOP
So kids, no reviews for the other 3 books, just images. I’ve worked myself up into a tizzy. We fogey’s are prone to this from time to time.
