A Hole & A Whole.
Fly On The Wall by E. Lockhart.
Gretchen goes to a school where kids be extraordinary, but she is ordinary. Her life is messed up as her parents are taking divorce and she has only one friend Katya who is always busy. Gretchen also has a crush on a guy, who kind of ignores her. When she is having a conversation with Katya, she wishes if she could be a fly on the wall in the boys locker-room to hear their conversations. The next morning, when she wakes up she is turned into a fly and is in the boys locker room!
I loved this book. It was clever and hilarious. Some parts in this book made me smile. Fly on the wall is a combination of weirdness and humor and I adored that. As I’m artistic and creative, I could relate to Gretchen as she is an artist. Loved the writing style and I hope this book could also get some hype just like other book of E. Lockhart.
Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart.
This book is about a girl name Jule who is a spy. She has a best friend named Imogen. Both of them are orphans, but nobody knows what Jule is. She changes her style so that people can’t recognize her. She has many names, passports, and ID. To some, she is Jule and to some she is Imogen. Jule has murdered many, was in a relationship with two or three. But, what is she escaping from? Does Imogen exist? Read this book to find out!
So, I’m kind of disappointed with this book. The plot was strong and interesting, but the story kept revolving around the past. The suspense and mystery were great. But, the past and present were not even connecting! There were many loose ends in the story. The main character, Jules is shown great, but if the story would have revolved more around the present it would have been a hit! The thing I LOVE about E. Lockhart’s writing is that she expresses emotions and feelings in a metaphoric format!
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare.
This book is the last in the trilogy, The Infernal Devices. As the Shadow World is after Mortmain and is battling the clockwork creatures, but Tessa is stuck up between two best friends, Will and Jem. Mortmain is after Tessa because he wants to make the most powerful clockwork creatures. While Tessa is kept captivated with Mortmain, Will and Jem are ready to take their lives to save Tessa.
So, I can not explain much about this book as it is the last book and it can spoil my literature queens and kings! Till the last chapter of the book, the scenes were intense and funny too. But, when I started reading the Epilogue, tears rolled down my eyes. It had broken my heart and the epilogue was like a burst of emotions. Every page in this book had a plot twist and I couldn’t even guess what will happen next. It also has an awesome love triangle and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about it. One of the best Finales I have ever read. If you have read this book, share your thoughts in the comments below!
