    bibliophile's book review was featured in Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Shatter Your Senses! (ANNUAL).
    Did you know that at St. Paul, Alberta, Canada that there is a UFO landing pad to bring in Martians to this vicinity?? I apologize for not being on DOGO for the past year--yes I was MIA, but that does not mean I stopped reading (I blame the Martians--jkjk). Gosh I really missed DOGO <3 so much!!! Sorry for sounding too sappy, but yes, I have come to this wonderfully made website to express my feelings! WARNING: this will be a long review, sort of to make up for time I was gone... STORYTIME/REVIEW: In school, I have been reading very… um…. let us say classics, Shakespeare, and all that good stuff (I was being sarcastic, I do not want to read another romantic, yet tragic death of Romeo and Juliet… Sorry if you do like Shakespeare), but to be honest my head was so tired of reading something that sounded like a foreign language to me. So once I came back home from school, I saw a book… the color, the length, the width, the--YES, it was not a book from Shakespeare…. I had a “curiosity overload” as I walked closer and closer to it. I brought up the book and I saw the eyeball as it constantly dilated then contracted. Dilated. Contracted. Dilated. Contracted. I was fascinated, what was even this sorcery *Harry Potter lives in this book* (JKJKJK)? My imagination grew even wilder, filling with hopes and dreams. As time passed by, the moment that I waited for finally happened! My hand trembled to open up the book to explore the pages. BABAMMM!!! I felt an electric shock go through my fingertips, I was ecstatic! *YES, this is the exact feeling you will feel when you see the book for yourself!* So this huge book with 245 pages occupied my mind for hours as I devoured each page, as my brain was trying to retain all the information I was learning. Yes--this book--you actually learn and retain pieces of information because the colorful prints and pictures help you able to visualize it clearly, which later gets memorized (sort of like muscle memory). I am being very serious, for example, a couple days ago I read about a huge tumor, which induced Gurmeet Singh to undergo a surgery to remove this tumor (121 LBS!!!)... and somehow all of this information stayed with me; it even followed me to my dreams!! (IM SERIOUS) I am a person who dreams all the time, and I dreamed of being a surgeon actually performing the surgery on Singh to remove this malignant tumor (yes, all of this is true and happened in real life). I feel like even though all of these information are random, there are certain topics in which the book spreads out by (which is very helpful, if you want to read about certain topics). Anyways all of these information will be handy one day, I can definitely assure you. Also, when reading this book, it does not seem like you’re studying, but you technically are learning and studying (but it’s disguised because the book is really fun when reading through this). Like there’s so much information--and also there could be information that might be useful to you in general, or even for school! All these pieces of information with visuals are strategically placed, its like this book is a genius. But to be honest, just get the book for yourself!! This colorful, yet factual book is something that you do not want to miss out (especially if you have been reading Shakespeare)!! Also, just please read this book, this book needs all the love it can get due to its amazing information, it will definitely SHATTER YOUR SENSES!! I assure you that you will be 10 times smarter after reading this book! :) Enjoy!! ~~bibliophile

    bibliophile's book review was featured in Gears of Revolution (Mysteries of Cove).
    A book full of mystery, adventure, arduous activities, and anything your heart desires- this book encompasses a story of a true hero. Meet Trenton and Kallista, this whole adventure wraps around those two pairs working together to find where Kallista's father, Leo Babbage, disappeared off too.... Of course with the help of a special creature, a dragon, which serves as ship... After being leaded to many different places- they end up going to city of nowhere- more specifically an underground city- they soon find out that there is a civil war between the Order of the Beast and the Whipjacks... and the pair gets captured by the Whipjacks!!!! DUN DUN DUNNNN!!! And it's fair to say that... it's only the beginning.... Now what is going on right now??? Who knows??? What can Kallista and Trenton do?? Honestly... right now... they can't do anything because they are held in captive- but afterwards they find out that Kallista's dad was in the same toes as them... And they also meet new people like Ander, Plucker, and Cochrane... That Cochrane made me question everything.... And Ander came and go really quickly... Which makes (probably all) readers question everything... Honestly there's too much going on without spoiling everything- I like to clarify that I did not read the first book... despite that, overall this book was amazing, adventurous, suspenseful, and honestly it was SAVAGE... no wonder why J. Scott SAVAGE wrote this (no, ye??? puns??? Sorry, I just love puns... but XD)... So despite reading the first book- I'm really interested to read the third book... because aren't you interested? Did this spark you interest at all- because you can be honest.... Where is Leo Babbage?? Will Trenton and Kallista complete their duty?? Who can they trust?? Will Trenton's and Kallista's relationship be stronger or actually worsen??? Honestly, this story gives an amazing moral... and it was a nice, sweet, cliffhanging story. ENJOY! :D
