Mini Reviews (26) – Fall TBR

  1. The Fever Code by James Dashner
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    This is the prequel that everyone wanted The Kill Order to be! It’s not perfect (Dashner has no clue how to write little kids – just because they’re super smart, it doesn’t mean 5 year olds talk like teens) but it is fun (and sad) to see younger versions of Thomas and the gang (MINHO!!!). Teresa, as always, sucks.
  2. Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoeff Sutton
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    This new series is like Evanovich’s Fox and O’Hare series, with a less competent female lead (Moon), and a socially awkward male lead (Knight). It’s fun and funny, if wildly improbable, and Sutton does an admirable job of reigning Evanovich in.
  3. Pushing Up Daisies by M. C. Beaton
    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
    I really don’t know how M. C. Beaton does it. The mystery is all over the place before it fizzles out (Agatha even thinks this), and the editing is horrific. Yet, it’s imminently readable, and curmudgeonly Agatha is oh-so lovable.

    Curious Minds: Thanks, I was wondering about this series.

    Pushing Up Daisies: I know! I’m just so fond of Agatha and her cohorts that it’s fun to read. I mostly read the mystery series for the characters anyway, rather than the actual mystery.
