In her first graphic novel, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestseller Marissa Meyer follows Iko, the beloved android from the Lunar Chronicles, on a dangerous and romantic new adventure—with a little help from Cinder and the Lunar tea

When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers’ leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity.

I received this book for free from Macmillan for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

First sentence: “Somewhere outside Sydney, Australia…”

“I need more Iko” is the first thing everybody I know says after reading The Lunar Chronicles. And why shouldn’t they? This lovable android with her upbeat personality and love for dresses and shoes is an absolute delight. Readers cannot help but fall in love with her. Readers have been waiting years for her own story, and it’s finally here!

Dear Patrick Ness & Release,

Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume’s Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17. It’s a big day. Things go wrong. It’s intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches…

Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It’s a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won’t come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course.Goodreads

FAREWELLS

I am here to say, the 2017 Love-A-Thon is officially over. I haven’t actually been around very much throughout Love-A-Thon because of work. (I couldn’t get the weekend off since it’s President’s Day weekend for me, and my store needed people there.) However, I’m gonna be leaving lots of love messages to every single person who participated in the next week!
