Busy Busy Busy

I'm sorry!

I've been away too long. I have been so busy with things going on in my life right now, but hopefully, all the bad stuff is over with.

Anyways, I know I promised some more reviewes which I'll have up by Wednesday!
It's going to be great, I promise.

One I will have posted up is How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan.

Anyways, now that summer is here I will have plenty of blogging time.

Review: Chain Mail: Addicted to You by Hiroshi Ishizaki

Chain Mail by Hiroshi Ishizaki is a story in four different teenagers point of views. Each teen is connected to each other by a chain mail message sent to their phone. All end up joining a site where they each take on a role in a narrative story. One plays a schoolgirl stalked by a boy, while another plays her stalker, boyfriend, and detective. However, their roles in the story start to seemingly become reality. Chain Mail is a tale woven into an unforgettable story filled with angst and suspense.

At first, It was sort of difficult to get into Chain Mail. However, trudging on, I soon found myself immersed in Ishizaki's book. The plot of the book is unlike anything I have ever read before. The different point of views in this novel were switched smoothly, which I usually find hard to see. This book might be a little difficult for some readers, but included are handy footnotes describing small details and words in the book. I recommend this book to teens who enjoy reading of different cultures or anyone looking for an interesting read. It grabbed my attention!
