Freaky Friday: Klik

Vorig jaar introduceerden wij de Freaky Friday. Hierbij recenseren wij een boek die niet valt onder de ‘normale’ genre boeken (Young/New Adult) die wij normaal recenseren. Deze keer zal er een nieuw boek besproken worden die geschreven is voor volwassenen, terwijl wij de schrijfster heel goed kennen van haar boeken binnen het Young Adult-genre!

If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she’s not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels.

Review: Carry On

Carry On Auteur: Rainbow Rowell
Pagina’s: 517
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Publicatie: Macmillan, oktober 2015
Rating:
4,5 Eikels

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything.

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters. (Beschrijving Goodreads.com)
