I’ve not really had time to do my normal mini-reviews of books recently. So here are my reactions
Uglies + Specials (books 2 and 3 of a trilogy) - Scott Westerfield. Plot-indued narrator voice change is initially jarring. Enjoyed book 3 particularly. Book 2 was… a middle-ish book.
Obliviion (Final book in Power of Five series) - Anthony Horowitz. Very awesome up until the Antarctica scenes. Then it seemed to loose the awesomeness and became very predictable.
The Last Little Blue Envelope (Final book in a duology) - Maureen Johnson. Initially hesitent. Not quite as awesome as the first book, but still rated highly.
Cardcaptor Sakura (Volume 4 - Final) - CLAMP/DarkHorse Manga. Usual high standard with much love. Some differences to anime. Only thing I’d fault would be the slight spine design change from the previous three volumes.
And the winner of the “Which Series Has Your Favorite Magical Girl Outfits” poll was:
P.S. I wasn’t able to draw a picture for this one because I didn’t have a scanner near me, so take this cruddy edited picture instead. Sorry! ;_____;
