Book 42: Specials

14 May

specialsSpecials (Uglies #3)  by Scott Westerfeld


I love Tally as a Special. She is so bad-ass. And I much prefer the thinking sensation to be icy rather than bubbly. Shay was so cold, (which was the intent I’m sure) but she definitely made a good villainess-bestfriend. I liked Andrew’s cameo. 🙂 Zane’s death was meh. I didn’t really hard-core follow ship (Tally/Zane, Tally/David, Tally/Peris, if anything a Shay/Tally or Cory/anyone would have been interesting). I absolutely loved the rescue scenes. Shay talking to drugged Tally, priceless. Cured Dr. Cable and her quips, the best. I’m glad war was able to be avoided, so Tally does not have that on her conscience. Overall it was a good ending to a good series.




Book 40: Pretties

Uggggh Why are boys so stupid. David David David, if it was you lying in that bed would you want Tally to leave you behind. Gawd you had to bring the pretty card into play. But I can’t put all the blame on you, fricken Tally the two-timing Crim. And Shay! Why why why did you have to turn to the dark side, I can understand you feeling betrayed, but the Specials! Icky. What I did like in this was Croy, oh you ninja you. And Zane’s measurement of beauty, “milli-Helens” haha I’m going to start usin that.
