Passenger by Alexandra Bracken is a journey. When Passenger first came out, I tried to read it but it was so slow that I had to give up. I decided to try it again this year. Knowing that the beginning of Passenger was going to be really slow due to the world building, I was more prepared for round two. As the story moved forward I became hooked. Ella gets thrown into a world that she didn’t know existed. Etta comes from a family of time travelers but she was unaware of this unique gift. It is very interesting learning […]

My Teaser: Etta limped over to him, peering trough the darkness to see what was below-a boatman, as it turned out, in one of three rowboats tied up to the small dock, smoking as if he didn’t have a care in the world.

Book Review: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Book Review: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Posted July 31, 2015 by love2dazzle in Reviews, Young Adult / 0 Comments

I almost gave up on “The Darkest Minds” by Alexandra Bracken. It started out so slow. I was having a hard time staying focus on the characters and the story line because I just could not get into the story. I couldn’t connect with anything or fall in love with the characters. Then something changed and I was falling in love with the story, the characters, and the world. Bracken creates a horribly wonderful world. Children are dying and the ones that survive are viewed as a threat to the adults. These children are discovered to have abilities or powers. […]
