Airhead, Meg Cabot’s latest teen book, is impossible to summarize. I’m sure you’ve seen countless reviews of it around so I’m not even going to try. If you want a summary, check out The Compulsive Reader’s review, here. Now, for my review.
I can honestly say that I think Airhead is Meg Cabot’s best book yet. There’s a lot less fluff than Meg’s previous novels, though the romance is still there, and it’s got a serious tone to it, though it was still fun to read. The characters, every since one of them, were well developedd and each had their own quirks and personalities. The concept behind the story, though slightly terrifying if it were to every happen, was unique and it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can’t stress how awesome this book was and even if you’ve been disappointed by Meg’s recent standalones, I’m positive you’ll love this. So if you haven’t done so already, I suggest you go and buy Airhead immediately.
I’ll Come To Thee….
Shed Seven Tears,
Perchance Seven Years
Seven years ago, Gwen Cooke met a strange boy with dark, slightly titled eyes on the beach. He whispered words in her ears and then disappeared. Soon after, Gwen’s family left the beach.
Now seventeen, Gwen is returning since her nana asked her to come. Yet, Gwen knows it’s time to go back for a different reasons: She yearns for the sea. Is it the sea itself calling her? Or is it the memory of the boy and his haunting words drawing her back? Either way, it’s time for Gwen to find out the truth.
Seven Tears into the Sea by Terri Farley is an enchanting book. It’s full of haunting drama, romance, and suspense. The characters fit in easily together and the feelings Gwen has are ones that most girls can relate to, though probably for different reasons. This book is definitely one you’ll never want to put down and when you do finish it, you’ll want to read it all over again.
I’ve been a fan of Terri’s writing ever since I recieved the first book in her Phantom Stallion series for Christmas a few years back. When she took a break from her horse books to write this celtic fantasy, I wasn’t sure I’d like it. It was, after all, very different from what I was used to reading. After reading many good things about it, I finally broke down and bought the book. It definitely did not disappoint. I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys celtic fantasy, romance, suspense, or is just ready to read a great book.
