Can Libraries Cut You Off?: The July Wrap-up

Hi there, it's been awhile. Things got away from me over the past... 6 months (seriously it's been that long?!). I kept meaning to write wrap-up posts but, well, down time could always be better used as reading time. (That philosophy explains so much about the state of my entire life, really.)


Review: In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan

Unlike most fantasy book loving children, thirteen year old Elliot Schafer actually gets picked to protect a land which seems to fulfill all his childhood dreams. The Borderlands are full of creatures right out of his favorite stories – elves, trolls, unicorns, harpies, and to Elliot’s lasting delight, mermaids. The offer to stay and attend school there is everything Elliot could ever wish for. However, he quickly comes to realize that the books all lied – enemies can look like friends, darkness can exist anywhere, and he might have just signed on to attending school in the magic equivalent of Sparta.
