Steelheart by Brandon SandersonSteelheart by Brandon Sanderson

“They looked so dangerous, like alligators. Really fast alligators wearing black. Ninja alligators.

I decided not to use that one on Megan.” (pg. 149)

This book is so much fun! With lots of really awful metaphors, just like this one. Which somehow makes it more fun. Go figure.

“I text James. MILLER’S GOT A STUPID PLAN.
I wait, still in my seat as the classroom filters out around me. When a message pops up on the screen, I feel my chest tighten.

SO DO I.

PLEASE DON’T, I type. I’m terrified that my boyfriend and my best friend will get flagged, and I’ll be left all alone in this place. This barren world.

But all I get back is: I LOVE YOU, SLOANE.” (pg. 18)

Day 2:

Ooooh. I’m finally getting around to reading The Program (for the End of the Year Readathon)! Just getting into chapter 10 and I’m really liking it. It’s so dark and frustrating but totally in a good way! I’m definitely excited to get further into the book. I’m still lovin’ the cover too (:

Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.

  1. I’m glad you’re liking The Program so much! I agree it really is dark, but I’m glad Suzanne didn’t shy away from the subject matter and really ‘got her hands dirty’ with her world building!

    1. Me too (: I’m just at the point where Sloane is just starting the Program! It’s definitely a book that pulls heartstrings.

  2. Hmmmm I don’t think The Program would be my thing, I actually took it off my TBR. Steelheart, that quote is classic though! You can’t get more original than ninja alligators.

    1. Ah, that’s too bad. I’m enjoying it so far, but It is different than the typical dystopia I find.
      I love the ninja alligators too!

  3. The Program looks like typical dystopian novel, but I still want to read it.

    1. I actually found it to be a bit different. It’s kinda hard to explain though ahah. I am really enjoying it though, I hope you do too if you pick it up!

  4. Here’s a teaser for you:

    “I’m sorry to bother you but it’s an emergency,” she told Alessandro. “I need a drug test.” City of Lost Dreams (p. 86).

    I’m starting to think that Magnus Flyte novels are always a trip! 🙂

    1. Thanks for sharing the teaser! I wonder what kind of emergency it is!

  5. Both books sound good, but the ninja alligators made me want to know more! Good teasers.
    My Teaser is from CHRISTMAS CALLING.

  6. Ninja alligators made me laugh 🙂 Great teasers! I need to read The Program ASAP. I <3 Suzanne Young

  9. Kim! I totally love the alligators teaser! Though if they were like real ninjas we wouldn’t even seen them…haha. Might have to check this book out!

    1. Hahah, there were quite a few really great quotes. But I thought this was too fun to resist. 😀 I hope you do read it and enjoy it.

  13. Steelheart made me LOL a lot, the MC was horrible with metaphors!! I love that the author kind of poked fun at himself with it!

    1. Yes! It was a fun quirk of the MC. 😀
