What if the most terrifying person you know is your ten-year-old sister?

Seventeen-year-old Aussie Che Taylor loves his younger sister, Rosa. But he’s also certain that she’s a diagnosable psychopath—clinically, threateningly, dangerously. Recently Rosa has been making trouble, hurting things. Che is the only one who knows; he’s the only one his sister trusts. Rosa is smart, talented, pretty, and very good at hiding what she is and the violence she’s capable of.

Their parents, whose business takes the family from place to place, brush off the warning signs as Rosa’s “acting out.” Now that they have moved again—from Bangkok to New York City—their new hometown provides far too many opportunities for Rosa to play her increasingly complex and disturbing games. Alone, Che must balance his desire to protect Rosa from the world with the desperate need to protect the world from her.


 

My Sister Rosa by Justine Larbalestier

I’m about halfway through this book and I’m enjoying it so far. Rosa is a creepy sociopath child! I was wondering how realistic this would be after reading the synopsis (like seriously, how do the parents not see that their child is evil?!) but it is actually done very well. I definitely want to see how the rest of this story plays out.


What did you recently finish reading?

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab (Shades of Magic#3) 4★

What a wonderful conclusion! I adored the Shades of Magic series and I am sad to say goodbye to Kell, Lila, Rhy, Alucard. I was extremely pleased with the conclusion and the only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because I got tired of the rapid POV changes. I felt like it took away from my overall enjoyment of the story. However, still a highly recommended series!

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli 5★

Honestly…this book was the cutest. I will absolutely read more books by Becky Albertalli, she is hilarious! Simon was a great narrator. I love how he wasn’t your typical “unpopular, strange but suddenly getting attention from the dreamy good-looking character” narrator I see in so many YA contemporaries. He was so…normal! He was funny, confident, had a lot of friends and still an extremely likable narrator. The emailing back and forth with the mysterious boy reminded me a bit of P.S. I Like You and I loooved it. It was adorable. Review to come.


What do you think you’ll read next?

27833670“Are you happy with your life?”

Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious.

Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits.

Before a man Jason’s never met smiles down at him and says, “Welcome back, my friend.”

In this world he’s woken up to, Jason’s life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.

Is it this world or the other that’s the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could’ve imagined—one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.

From the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy, Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human—a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we’ll go to claim the lives we dream of.


 

Dark Matter by Black Crouch

Soooo… I forgot I owned this? I bought it a while ago and never got around to reading it. I think I am going to change that ASAP. This will be my first Blake Crouch book so I am excited to see what I think! Have any of you read Dark Matter?

  1. Such great picks Alex! I actually just purchased My Sister Rosa for 2.99 on Kindle & since it was on my most anticipated 2017 list, It was destiny lol. I’m hoping to read AGOS once I’m done with some arcs & love seeing all of the positive feedback ACOL has been receiving. Dark Matter is also on my TBR, own a copy that’s waiting for me to give it time smh lol, I hope you enjoy it 🙂
