Hello! My name is Joshua and my mom is the owner of this website. Since I am homeschooled, I have to read a lot. A lot. When she got this book, she said I would like it. She was right but I did not know I would be blogging on it. No pressure.
Everything in this review will come from me. I am even typing it, but Mom, Alyssa Hunt, will be putting in the links and the fancy stuff. I am the brains and she's the back up.
The Deadly 7 is by Garth Jennings (he has a really fun website, by the way) and is about a boy named Nelson. His sister is kidnapped while on a trip in Spain which is pretty scary. His parents leave him with his Uncle Pogo (he has a wooden leg), who lives in London while they search for her. While there, Nelson helps his Uncle and ends up being stabbed in the back when he falls on to a strange machine below St. Paul's Cathedral! The machine removed seven entities (mom said that was a good word), from Nelson. All of them are what are from the seven deadly sins we have inside us! They appear to Nelson as weird looking monsters, but they behave like minions. Each creature has a bad or embarrassing habit and they don't always get along, but they are all there to help Nelson find his sister. They have strange powers that link themselves to Nelson and know when he needs help. So they go off on a mission to bring his big sister back home.
I can't tell you how amazingly fast this book moves! I've only read a couple of books that drop you right in the middle of a crisis, like Sam Rittenhouse. Many books can take you for a ride, but 12 Blackened Petals, by Brian M. Taylor, sets you behind the wheel of a roller derby vehicle- with no engine! You sit back, in your head gear, strapped in what's supposed to be s safety harness and endure crash after unbelievable crash! Because Sam is a wreak...
Have you any idea how straight love stories affect me? It's torturous! Saddening and difficult to get through. I keep expecting someone to jump through a window, while a a couple retreats before a toasty, fireplace, throwing poisonous darts! Or for a monstrous python, that's resistant to fire to creep down the chimney and swallow the loving couple whole!
Normal love stories don't do it for me...
And here is the conclusion of my thoughts on The Lunar Chronicles - an amazing series! Boy, I feel a little cheated by my own hands, because I wanted so long to read these. Because of the stories I read in Part 1 of my review of The Lunar Chronicles, I was readily prepared for the books in this review, Part 2. Each and every story tied in to perfection. I wonder how long it took her to write all of these. She's skilled- I wanna write like her when I grow up!

This is a huge series! There aren't six books to this series but eleven! Four are mostly short stories, but they're fillers. They fill in the gaps between the novels. I read on Marissa Meyer's website, that the stories could be read in three ways. First was as the books came out; easy enough. Next, as the novels released, with the short story fill-ins or in chronological order. I chose chronological order, so I read Fairest first. Then... well, you'll see as I review. I have to say though, Meyer's a cool storyteller! I really enjoyed these books. All of them.

I've never technically read someone's memoirs before. Well, if I've read autobiographies, then I guess I can say Yes, but there's a slight difference. Isn't there? Well, Thomas J. Hay found me on another network for connecting. I love meeting new authors and reading their tales, but when you catch one that makes you question things- that's a good read. What I loved most about this memoir, An Abduction Revelation: The Comeback Kid Returns, I was able to laugh, sing and go "Oooooo!"
