Title: Order of the Dimensions
Author: Irene Helenowiski
Publication Date: September 14th, 2012
My Rating : 3/5 stars ( C-)
When Jane Kremowski first began her graduate studies in physics at Madison State University in Wisconsin, little did she know where her work would take her. Now, she is embroiled in a multitude of dimensions all leading to different outcomes. She and her colleagues therefore must act wisely in order to take and keep away the Order of Dimension from falling into the wrong hands for the sake of her loved ones.
I received a copy of Order of the Dimensions from the author in exchange with an honest review.
This book is the first in the Order of the Dimensions Trilogy.
This book took me to another world, where all my fantasies of seeing what happen in alter universes/dimensions came true during the days I was reading it.
Imagine that there is a device that can transport you to another dimension, a place were you gain control of not losing a family member, or a place where you rule the WORLD. Yes, It gets dangerous when the device falls in the wrong hands. Which happens, a lot !
You get to see what happens in many dimensions, which is shaped according to what the one in controls wants.
Although , the premise of the story is way more than just appealing, I had some problems with the writing style.
The author seems to be into describing the way the conversation is going instead of how the characters are dealing with the situation.
The Emotions in this book play a huge part, but being described in just a single or couple of words does not serve it any good.
There is a thing that was a bit confusing, like when does the person remember if he/she was from another dimension.
However, this was such an interesting read that I was barely able to put it down.I am looking forward to start book 2 soon . Irene told me that the writing style is different in the last two books, which is great because the series has such a great premise and the the writing style will add up to the entire book quality
I give this book 3/5 stars and a C- according to my own rating scale.
Title: The Selection #1
Author: Kiera Cass
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: April 24th 2012
Genre: YA, Dystopian, Love
Edition : Paperback
My Rating: 5/5 stars (A)
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
A great enjoyable read , even though it was not what I expected it to be.
I really admired how the author designed the status scale, from 1 to 8, where what you work , how much you get paid, and your social status were all decided by the government.
However , this is not a book about a corrupted government, but a contest that is held when the prince is looking for a bride,and this is where the story begins.
I did not know what exactly what would the Selection would be, perhaps a hand to hand combat between princesses, or something :D
Although the concept of the Selection itself in kind of plain and not that creative, the way the characters were described and the conversations made me finish the book in less than day.
The book is mostly character based and although there is not much of action or fighting going on, I still found myself strongly invested in the story.
An applause for Kiera Cass for making me like both boys in this love triangle, but it is still Team Maxon :)
I can't wait to have the second book in the series " The Elite" between my hands and read it.
I gave this book 5/5 stars and an A according to my own rating scale.
On a cursed empire,
we currently live.
Some feed on fire;
others survive on what's left to give
The fire might feed,
on many innocent souls;
it may also lead,
into a deep toxic hole.
On a cursed empire,
we shall stay.
Since fighting guilty desires,
is hard these days.
However, crossing into the light,
might help us find,
a place where we have the right,
To build a better empire.
It is not easy,
to step into the light.
Cause unlike magic,
it does not happen overnight .
Try to outstand your tragedy traffic.
Reach out for light and try to fight,
The dark voice killing you from the inside
Fighting hand in hand,
shall help us ban,
the evilness living,
on our land.
Until we are able to distinguish,
What is really worth fighting for,
We all shall live
On this cursed empire
