Howdy YAL!

I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies. 

Every Other Day

Every Other Day - Jennifer Lynn Barnes Okay, this book was amazing. It had it's faults which I'll get to soon enough, but overall I loved it. It really was one of those books you had stay up all night with to find up what happens next. Kali was a real treat. Barnes created a three dimensional character with real problems and faults. The supporting cast was great as well, they defied archetypes. The plot itself was well thought out as well. The lone complaint I had about this book its the use of science. Personally, I loved how Barnes wove in all the Darwin talk throughout the book. I could see the science talk though affecting/alienating uneducated readers though. And it's not because the whole evolution issue either (which really isn't even an issue in the book) it's just the complexity of these principles might come with a little difficulty to some to understand without some background about Darwin and his journey on the Beagle.To see full Review click here: http://yalbookbriefs.blogspot.com/2012/01/every-other-day-jennifer-lynn-barnes.html
