    armcginn's book review was featured in Heartless.
    Heartless is one of those books that are so indescribably enchanting, that it cannot be put into words, yet I will try to do it justice here, Heartless, a tale of romance, a tuna-tart loving cat, a maid and a lady who dream of a bakery, a jester and a king, who purse the same heart and an impossibly mad hatter on the run from time. and the fate that twists their lives in a knot, binding them in an embrace so tight that it becomes impossible to unravel, a tale of things that never should have been, of longing, and false hopes, but this is wonderland, and this is the tale of many things that might be anyway, a defiance of what may seem to be the fate's chosen truth, a romance, a heartbreak, unsurpassed. Marissa Meyers knows the makings of a good romance, and I say this truthfully, very few books make me cry, yet she gives us this gift, like a pure white, rose cut by a joker's hand, that is the key, to the souls of many readers.

    armcginn's book review was featured in Divergent (Divergent Series).
    Powerful words are rarely pushed to their limits, yet Veronica Roth has woven a tapestry of words so perfectly, this tapestry is known to most, quite simply as Divergent. Gloriously enchanting, A tale of unearthly courage, sacrifice, selflessness, love, and the search for an unseen truth. Welcome to a world where one choice will define you. The choice sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior will be making, the night of the choosing ceremony. Where will her blood fall? The pure water of the intelligent Erudite?, The clear glass of the honest Candor?, The grey stones of the selfless Abnegation?, The quiet earth of the peaceful Amity? Or the flaming embers of the courageous Dauntless? Torn Between five lives. One choice will define you. Divergence is not an option, it is A secret to be held close, A secret that could kill, A secret that must remain buried, one she will protect even at the price of her own life, because what makes you different makes you dangerous. As her blood hisses amongst the embers she strides towards her new faction, life, and visions. Survival is a must, in a world where danger is commonplace and small fears are scorned to the point of exile, where the art of knife throwing is naught but elementary, gunfights are unextraordinary, ziplining from Willis (formerly Sears)tower's rooftop is a favorite pastime, and death is an honor. This is Tris. This is Dauntless. This is the true meaning of Divergence. Guaranteed to be Un-Put-Down-Able! -ARMcGinn

    armcginn's book review was featured in Cinder.
    Based upon the classic fairy tale Cinderella, Marisa Meyers weaves the captivating and futuristic tale of a young cyborg, Cinder, living in New Beijing after the fourth world war. She lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters, Adri, Pearl, and Peony. She works as a mechanic, fixing androids and other common household machinery and to "help" her stepmother Adri pay her bills, and all goes according to plan, that is until a particularly charming client (and his android Nansi) sweep her off her feet, on an adventure she never could have never imagined! Prepare yourself for adventure, excitement, betrayal, and even some romance! This is truly one of the greatest books I have read and found I had a hard time putting it down! If you are looking for an amazing book series, this is it. I think that this book is one amazing read!
