Sam’s Review

The complete Girl of Glass Series, featured on Sam’s Teen Reads Corner.

This is it. The end. There is nowhere else to go on the broken earth. Vengeance is arising, and Nola must finally confront the one she left behind, the one she strived so much to have the attention of her mother. The one who preferred her plants over her daughter. Nola has had enough and gives her mother the dosage of karma that she deserves. As for the one behind the whole mess? Oh, don’t worry, he’s taken care of. How? Well, I don’t feel like spoiling anything else than I already have, so you will just have to put up with not knowing.

I have said it once already, and I will say it again. This series is well written, gripping, and immersive. It has all the components for a perfect dystopian story and will pull you into a world that you will never forget.

Sam’s Review

The clock is ticking. The domes are no longer safe, as well as the city outside of the domes. Females within what is left of the crumbling world Nola was raised in are now being bred to raise population. Survivors of the attacks are being tracked as a corrupt government searches for Nightland and the traitors. Nola has opened her heart to love, at last, but can it stay that way when the new people they find, the Teachers and the Northerners, threaten them with bows and arrows? Or will it crumble away like trees under the touch of an illegal substance that the domes have resorted to?

The stakes are higher than ever, and so will your interest in the series as more secrets are revealed and people are hurt. Nowhere is safe, and Meghan O’Russell makes sure you know that.

Sam’s Review

Sam’s Teen Reads Corner Livestream for the Girl of Glass series by Megan O’Russell

Nola was bait once. She was beaten, betrayed, and put into danger more than once. She had found love with two men, both in their own ways breaking her heart, hardening her heart just in time for the climax of her story. She is in Nightland, under the influence of a life-saving drug that, instead of turning her into a vampire, a werewolf, or a zombie, made her into a superhuman. She is now stronger, faster both in running and healing. A force to be reckoned with, indeed.

Time is ticking, the domes are crumbling after her leaving. She cannot go back. Her bloodline is tainted. She is a traitor to the domes. She doesn’t care. People have died at the domes’ hands. The fires were only sparking and being fanned before, now they are growing.

I have a lot of praise for this series, this book in particular. As gripping as the other two, it almost feels like you are there with her. Filled with more danger, with little blips of humor, the series is close to the end.

Sam’s Teen Reads Corner reviews Pintip Dunn’s award-winning Remember Yesterday

Remember Yesterday, Pintip Dunn (Forget Tomorrow)

Teen, Science Fiction, 420 Pages

Entangled: Teen; Reprint edition (September 5, 2017)

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries―if only she’d let TechRA study her. But after they kidnapped and experimented on her as a child, cooperating with the scientists is the last thing Jessa would do.

But when she discovers the past isn’t what she assumed, Jessa must join forces with budding scientist Tanner Callahan to rectify a fatal mistake made ten years ago. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister―even if it means aligning with the enemy she swore to defeat.

The Forget Tomorrow series is best enjoyed in order.

Sam’s Review

Remember Yesterday is the sequel to Forget Tomorrow and let me tell you, it is a great as the first one. Told in Jessa’s POV, Jessa is Callie’s lil’ sis, this happens after Callie kills herself and destroys almost every hope of discovering future memory. Filled with romance, suspense, and anger, this book is hard to put down. Like, really, really hard.

Ten years after Callie killed herself to save Jessa, Jessa and Ryan are breaking into Mikey’s lab and being trouble-making teenagers. Plus, Tanner, the scientist about Jessa’s age is catching her attention. She swore never to side with the scientists. After all, they took her so she could become a friggin’ guinea pig. But all her efforts are for nothing, and her search to find a way to bring back Callie has narrowed down to one person, her thirty-one-year-old father.

I loved this book for its dystopian feel. It has a great and amazing storyline. If I had to describe the book in two words, it’d be, “beyond words.” That’s how good this book was. Jessa and Tanner make a good team, and Mikey plays the over-protective father figure rather well, but I didn’t like how it got a little confusing. Plus, a major plot twist like Callie being in a coma for ten years, and Jessa and Tanner being the ones that Callie encountered in the past, hit me like a brick wall. It was still incredible and interesting to hear from Jessa’s POV. I’m curious who will be the one telling the story in the third book.
