Feedback (Variant #2)

Benson Fisher has escaped from Maxfield Academy with a very injured Becky, but just what is beyond the fence? They are not sure, but know that it's probably going to be a really long walk to get to a safe place where there will be someone to care for Becky's injuries. They stumble across a small fort where all of their friends from Maxfield Academy are living. But are these real people, or are they more androids like the kids at school? That question is answered rather quickly with a box cutter and the arms of the kids. The kids living here are the real kids, and they are paranoid too. Anyone coming in must submit to having a box cutter shoved into their arms multiple times to be sure they aren't switched with any androids. These kids have been able to tell what their androids in the school are doing, they call it feedback when that happens. But they aren't totally safe in the fort, Iceman and Ms. Vaughn search the fort regularly, so Benson and Becky have to be super careful to not give away that they are living there too. There is danger around every corner here, will Benson and Becky be able to get away, and what about their friends that are living in the fort?

I had really high hopes for this book, I've been looking forward to reading it ever since I finished Variant. It was packed with action, and lots of killing of dupes, but it left me with more questions than I had before. I really didn't like the way that the kids killed each other, I found that part a bit graphic and gross. I also couldn't tell from the ending if there would be more books in this series or not. I do like Benson, Becky, Jane and the others, but I wish for a story more like Variant. You definitely want to read Variant first, or you'll be really confused!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

  1. I liked the first book and have been looking forward to reading this one. I thought it was only two books, but if there are so many unanswered questions maybe he decided to do a trilogy?

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

About the book: Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
