You are now entering the world of my thoughts.
This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

Book Review: Legend by Marie Lu
Author: Marie Lu
Published: Nov 2011
This was a good and easy to read story. I read it in one night.
I liked Day's personality and character although I was a bit disappointed in the way some of his story/situation turned out. I thought that for a guy who was good at staying under the radar, he got captured way too easily.
June was my favorite character. Her growth and awareness about the true nature of her 'government' felt realistic to me. Her transition from hate to like/understanding was actually endearing. The author did a really good job showing June's growth and learning.
The world building was neat and clean. Sometimes I feel like many authors don't spend much time on creating a believable world or else they spend too much time, boring me silly with mundane details.
My favorite thing about the book in general, little to no romance, ie, sex. There was one scene where Day and June kiss but that was it. So it is one that I would actually recommend. There is however quite a bit of violence so maybe only recommend it to a mature teen.
