Evelyn Reads Wired

I’ve recently had the pleasure of reading Wired by Caytlyn Brooke, a young adult science-fiction that deals with social media and addiction.

For me, reading this book felt like I was approaching a train wreck. From the distance, there is something but I’m unsure. The closer I get, the more apparent the devastation becomes. I simply cannot turn away from the scene, transfixed by the horror, and that is also true for this book.

In the beginning, I hoped that the main character would heed the close calls and steer away from the dangers of this technology. Alas, the synopsis and chapter titles only served to remind me that things would get worse, far worse.

How does it end? You’ll have to read to find out, and I highly recommend that you do. Just be aware that this book may have you look at your smartphone and associated social media feeds in a different way!

Evelyn Reads We Are Mars

We Are Mars, by Cheryl Lawson, is a story of what happens when scientific achievement and exploration meet the grim reality of the Twitter generation, one too distracted to pay attention to what the senior echelon is up to.

This story starts a little over fifty years after the settlement is established and is home to thousands of souls. Here, conditions are deteriorating because supplies from Earth are less bountiful than before.

From there, the author introduces a varied and memorable cast of players. A core group of characters get the spotlight giving you a unique insight into their thoughts and emotions, an aspect that I found to be compelling. As the story develops, alliances are made and broken as tensions reach critical.

Lawson really does an excellent job of mixing in theoretical and emerging science into the story, lending credibility to the tale and giving it an overall authentic feel.

Overall, if you are into series, I’d say that it’s worth reading!

Evelyn Reads Nora from the Hollow

I consumed Nora From the Hollow by Marlena Owens in one sitting! This is a murder mystery that takes place in a small town in 1895. People often yearn for the simple life and simpler times, to live in a place where everyone knows everyone. That is, until life gets complicated, people die, and the townsfolk turn on one another.

This book focuses on two characters, Nora, and Dirk a Sheriff’s deputy. Their paths cross often enough as the mystery unfolds, and provides different points of view as information is revealed to the reader.

There is plenty of interaction and dialogue with other characters, the best of which involves Dirk’s sisters. Some of it is rather witty and memorable, which makes this an enjoyable read. The story is notable in many ways, as are some of the characters.

I look forward to reading more works from this author!
