Diamond of Darkhold

30 05 2013

This is the first book I finished on my Kobo, so I wasn’t sure how to take a picture of it while also holding a camera. The brightness of the cover made it impossible to take a picture of it with myself, so I had to use the inside cover of the title instead, at the risk of putting myself in the dark (oh no… not really).

Anyway, The Diamond of Darkhold made for a moderately satisfying ending to the City of Ember series (although the bit about the aliens baffled me). People of Sparks will always be the best book of the series, in my opinion. It’s a book that, if we all lived and practiced by, there might not be a thing as war. Or so we can only hope.

Prophet of Yonwood

Not nearly as good and profound as People of Sparks, and disappointingly anti-climactic, but a decent read nonetheless.

I’m running out of typical mirror shots so I decided to be silly instead.

City of Ember

15 05 2013

While I was busy doing my Earth Week’s worth of posts, I finished a couple books. City of Ember is a fantastic book that I’d put on the same level as The Hunger Games in terms of good YA fiction featuring dystopias and using sci-fi as commentary.

On a sidenote, I think I’m running out of poses with all the books I’ve read.

Also, excuse my drab outfit. I was grungy and didn’t care.
