Over the weekend I read Wake and Fade by Lisa McMann. Now all I can say is that I am extremely disappointed and upset…because I didn’t buy the freakin’ third book!!!
My momma always taught me if you couldn’t find anything nice to say…then say nothing at all. I am happy to report I have a crap load of things to say. In the spirit of Monday (which I hate with a passion) these are all the M adjectives that best describe these books.
I even invented a few:
Meteorific (meteor sized terrific)
Mansational (when male mc is sensational, duh.)
It is written in third person-present tense and although it was a little strange at first, after a few pages the story takes over and it seems perfectly natural. The writing is so tight it squeaks and I could not put them down, literally. Even after I finished, I kept them beside me and reached out to pet them once in a while.
That actually sounded less creepy in my head.
