Months back, I really enjoyed reading Estep’s Mythos Academy series. I liked her writing and the way she built her characters, which for me is an important aspect for a series. I generally like the characters enough to want to see more of them, rather than being more interested in the plot or anything else.
There were things about The Boy in the Burning House that I really enjoyed, and things that I didn’t enjoy so much. Overall, it was a pretty good read: the storyline was interesting and unique, particularly captivating as the narrator is a teenage boy trying to move on and live his life after the mysterious disappearance of his father.
I’ve heard so much about this book, for so long, that I can’t believe it took me this long to get around to reading it.
The Lovely Bones is one of those books that gets really hyped up and actually deserves it.
