YA Crossover by Nick Bryan (The Girl Who Tweeted Wolf – Guest Post)

Ever wondered what an mystery book featuring social media would be like? The Girl Who Tweeted Wolf is your answer. As part of the blog tour, Nick shares his thoughts about YA crossover today.

YA Crossover – What does that mean?

hobson and choi banner4Around four hundred years ago, I signed up for this blog tour and immediately went home to prepare the initial concept sketches for my tour bus. That done, I also needed to decide on the genre of the whole Hobson & Choi series. You see, it has a teenager as a protagonist, and she deals with normal teenage things such as identity issues, early fumbled attempts at dating and, obviously, spurting bloody murders.

Unfortunately, the other protagonist is a middle-aged male who deals with detective issues such as solving mysteries, his own dark past, a tangled relationship history and, again, those gushing corpses. So we’re probably not YA. Or are we half-YA?

Fortunately, people have been throwing the term “YA crossover” around for a while now, so I decided to borrow that for my nefarious purposes. Slapped it in the Genre box, went back to deciding how many iBeers would go on my rider for this tour.

Admittedly, based on my research (googling it), a lot of books described as “YA crossover” seem to be teen-focused straight-up YA novels popular with a large number of adults. Your Harry Potters, Twilights, Hunger Games and Batman – The Novels. Hobson & Choi is a few million sales and an inconvenient adult main character from being in that company.

But I still like the term “YA Crossover” to describe Hobson & Choi, probably because I’ve read a lot of comic books for many years. As a result of this tsunami of tSpider-Man, whenever I hear “crossover”, I translate it to different series spilling into each other, Batman meeting Superman or Ant-Man joining the X-Men. More topically, The Flash and Arrow TV shows just did this exact type of crossover, as both TV and movies try to turn into comics.

My point being: if Hobson & Choi is “YA Crossover”, it’s the kind of crossover where YA and crime combine their tropes to co-exist in the same story, fight angrily over misunderstandings, then finally team up to save the day. And if that appeals to you, you should absolutely buy the first book and try it out.

Now, I’m off to set up my blog tour merch stand, where I sell P tags cheap and /P tags for a small fortune.

“If we get 400 followers, John Hobson will solve that nasty wolf-murder case for free! Fight the thing himself if he has to! #HobsonVsWolf!”

Angelina Choi was only trying to drum up some Twitter followers and make a good impression on her first day interning at John Hobson’s one-man detective agency.

But the campaign went viral and now they have a murder to solve, no money coming in, and an unwilling Hobson faced with battling some enormous beast.

With both follower and body counts rising, can they crack the case without offending everyone or being eaten by a huge dog?

The Girl Who Tweeted Wolf is the first case starring Hobson & Choi, a bickering, mismatched detective duo for 21st century London. This book collects the debut storyline of the hit darkly comic crime web serial, extensively rewritten and improved for this definitive edition.

Review: Plus One by Elizabeth Fama

Title: Plus One
Author: Elizabeth Fama
Series: None
Rating: 2 Stars

373 pages
Published April 8th 2014 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Bought

Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository

Plus One is the story of Sol, a Smudge, and D’Arcy, a Ray. This means that they technically should never have met, since Sol is only allowed to go out during the night, and D’Arcy only during the day. Sol gets caught up in a conspiracy when she by accident steals the wrong baby from the hospital.

Let’s start with the good. Sol as a character, is quite nice. She is extremely impulsive, which isn’t something I can identify with, but at least her behaviour is consistent throughout the story. She constantly gets into trouble because of it. D’Arcy was also quite refreshing – a YA love interest that is analytical and not creepy or controlling. I really like the scientific side of him. Finally, Ms Fama deserves huge props on the way she handles sex in a YA novel. It’s not sensationalised but realistic, and even manages to produce a condom in the middle of it. Honestly, almost every aspect of the romance was done well.

Romance is just one aspect of Plus One though. On the other hand we also have the plot, and the world-building.

The plot was too slow. Plus One counts almost four-hundred pages, but only has enough plot to fill about three-hundred. What does she fill the left over quarter with, you might wonder? Well, the most horrible and boring intermezzo I have ever seen. Don’t you just hate it when the hero and heroine stop to have sexy times in between shootings, death-threats and saving the world? Well, in Plus One, our wonderful couple just take a few days off to go camping.

I’m not kidding. They go camping and stargazing when they’re both wanted for five offences.

I must have put down this book three times during this intermezzo because it completely sapped any speed the plot might have had right out of it. Even when the plot was in “full swing”, I felt like there was barely anything happening. The moment things become interesting, they’re over. From the blurb I was expecting a lighter version of Feed or Parasite – massive plot twists and deep conspiracies, but then with a healthy dose of romance. Don’t get your hopes up. There is no conspiracy. Just three factions bickering and wanting things to go their petty way.

I could have dealt with the slow-moving plot if the world-building had been on par. There is such a thing as the willing suspension of disbelief, and as an avid reader of fantasy I am more than willing to suspend my disbelief, on two conditions. One, the world has to be plausible. Not possible, just plausible in some weird alternate-universe kind of way. Second, it has to have an inner consistency. If the world has rules, they have to apply always. Plus One has neither.

The world of Plus One is an alternate universe kind of story, describing how during the Influenza during the First World War scientists found out a way to stop it by hacking days into two parts – sunlight hours and night hours. They “share time”, by splitting the population in two groups, Smudges (night) and Rays (day), who aren’t allowed to go outside outside of their allotted time slot. This increased production in factories, and stopped the Influenza.

Apart from the slightly ridiculous assumption that you can somehow stop an infectious disease by having half your population stay inside for a few hours, the system just doesn’t make any fucking sense. Why the hell would you bind people to day and night? During season switches, day and night become shorter and longer, and all those changing hours just cannot be good for production in any way. During summer, depending on where you live, summer days might be up to sixteen hours long, while nights only last eight hours. I’m seeing a discrepancy between working hours there. The curfews are applied heavily in a dystopian kind of way. Why enforce curfews at all? When your job is in the middle of the night, you won’t stay up the entire day anyway. It seems such a waste of resources to have an entire army to check if your Rays are safely tucked in once night falls.

Smudges are repressed in a way, because they only have the night. Suppression of minorities is a thing in real life – those in power can decide whatever they want to concerning minorities. Even majorities can be oppressed, under certain circumstances. Females have been pushed down for centuries; however, one of the conditions of this is that you can immediately tell whether someone is female or not. Hiding your femininity is incredibly hard, and for some impossible without surgery. Because females can easily be distinguished from men, and because for a long time everything in society favoured men (for example, females couldn’t hold property or jobs or go to school), females were stuck. Smudges, however, aren’t stuck. They’re half of society, and aren’t recognisable in any way, except maybe from a lack of tan, but that’s easily fixable with make up. They’re not fundamentally different, and the divide is completely arbitrary. I just can’t accept that people would accept such an arbitrary and invisible division, without historical precedent. “Who controls the present, controls the past” is an idea that is used in many dystopians – if the populace can’t remember a different time, they are more accepting of there fate. There is no control on history in Plus One though, and people know there weren’t any Smudges or Rays a hundred years ago. Why the fuck would they go along with it? There is no single demarcation that shows you’re a Smudge versus a Ray, and throughout the story many cases are named where people change sides.

At one point, Sol even points out that she doesn’t know what she looks like in the sunshine. Her apartment has windows. She has a mirror. There is no Big Brother watching. How fucking hard can it be? At one point she says:

I had never seen the sun rise over the lake, but neither had he: the precise moment of legal curfew happened when the upper edge of the disk of the sun broke the horizon and unless you lived in an apartment near the lake there wasn’t enough transit time for most people to witness it. Ditto sunset.

So clearly people have windows. That look outside. But for some reason they have to be inside at the exact moment the sun rises. Because reasons.

One last thing, before I end this crazy long review: at one point it’s mentioned how countries all over the world have adapted the Ray/Smudge division. Um, yeah. Keep thinking that the world follows the States in every idiotic political fad. I hate these kind of USA-centric mentions. The rest of the world thinks your political climate is rather stupid, sorry. Guns, anyone?

I’ll leave this beautiful quote with you.

His lips parted, as if he had only been waiting for me, and my body was taken aback by the welcome. It felt like someone had scooped out my insides and dumped them on the ground

Nothing says romance like steaming entrails on the floor.

Blurb

Sol Le Coeur is a Smudge—a night dweller in an America rigidly divided between people who wake, live, and work during the hours of darkness and those known as Rays who live and work during daylight. Impulsive, passionate, and brave, Sol deliberately injures herself in order to gain admission to a hospital, where she plans to kidnap her newborn niece—a Ray—in order to bring the baby to visit her dying grandfather. By violating the day-night curfew, Sol is committing a serious crime, and when the kidnap attempt goes awry it starts a chain of events that will put Sol in mortal danger, uncover a government conspiracy to manipulate the Smudge population, and throw her together with D’Arcy Benoît, the Ray medical apprentice who first treats her, then helps her outrun the authorities—and with whom she is fated to fall impossibly and irrevocably in love.

Set in a vivid alternate reality and peopled with complex, deeply human characters on both sides of the day-night divide, Plus One is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights—and a compelling, rapid-fire romantic adventure story.

The Sunday Post #14

Sunday PostThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba from The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Hi guys! I can’t believe it’s already been a week since our London trip. We had an amazing time, and I took plenty of pictures for anyone interested in that kind of thing (: I met up with some lovely fellow bloggers pictured here on the right. It still baffles me that I have friends abroad!

This week marks the end of the University Terror of January. Just one more exam tomorrow and then I can breathe again. I honestly can’t wait for next week, when I don’t have to worry constantly about one thousand things that still have to be done.

This week on Nyx Book Reviews

Some more mini reviews, cause sometimes I just don’t feel like talking about all the things! It’s been a good few weeks for discussion posts, with the one about a positive community last week and one about reading reviews this week.

This week on Irresponsible Cactus

I post most travel things over on my personal blog Irresponsible Cactus. If you want to see what I did last weekend, hop on over (:

Read this week

sundaypost14

It’s been such a weird reading week. I read a big chunk of Macbeth on the train to London, and leafed a bit through Rat Queens, a graphic novel I didn’t finish until later this week. In London I bought some very pretty mangas, and since then, all I have been reading is manga. It’s like I’ve suddenly gotten adverse to books with actual text! I’ll run out of manga books soon enough though, so I guess this phase won’t last long. And the good thing about planning ahead is that I still have plenty reviews of non-manga books to last me a full month.

How was your week?

Review: The Elite by Kiera Cass

Title: The Elite
Author: Kiera Cass
Series: The Selection #2
Rating: 3 Stars

336 pages
Published April 23rd 2013 by HarperTeen
Bought

Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository

We are introduced to America and the strict caste society she lives in in The Selection. She joins the contest in becoming Prince Maxon’s wife, and makes it to the last six contestants. But now Aspen, her childhood flame, is a soldier in the palace, her love life is suddenly a lot more complicated.

Where The Selection was light-hearted fun, The Elite is a bit heavier reading. At the start of the first book Maxon and America are friends, until they grow into something more by the end of it. Now America is a huge mess, and the entirity of The Elite is marked by her confusion. One moment all she wants in life is to be a queen with Maxon – the other she wants to marry Aspen and go back to how things were, only now they might be a bit better with both their elevated statuses.

Many people don’t enjoy The Elite because America tends to forget the other half of the love triangle constantly. When she’s with Aspen, she forgets she has feelings for Maxon. When kissing Maxon, Aspen is the last thing on her mind. I feel quite ambivalent about this. Of course she wouldn’t think of the other, because if she did, she would soon go crazy and pick neither of them. And since we are nearing The One in which she will have to make a choice…

Kiera Cass writes in an incredibly readable way, and fills her books with nice secondary characters you would love to be friends with, and enemies you love to hate. A few minor inconsistencies aside, The Elite continues in the same vain as The Selection. I find these books very addictive light reading, and I’m enjoying binge reading them. Bring it on, The One!

Blurb

The Selection began with thirty-five girls. Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America’s chance to choose is about to slip away.

Do Reviews Still Get Read?

Ah, reviews. The age-old controversy amongst bloggers. Do book reviews make a book blogger? Do book reviews make a blogger a reviewer? Are book bloggers critics, or are they readers? What does a good review make? All of these questions concerning reviews are interesting ones, but ones that will be left for another day. Today I’m focussing on reviews themselves – do they get read? Are book reviews still relevant in the blogosphere today?

Reviews go unread

A month ago, Parajunkee posted about how no one reads her reviews. People visit her blog for features, discussions, and events, but her reviews go unread. Most of the commenters share their experiences with a lack of interest in book reviews. The only reviews that seem to get any attention are the rage-filled ones – you all know the one, with endless snark and ranting. People notice dips in page views on days they post reviews. Some commenters even share that this is the reason they have stopped writing reviews completely. Why write something no one is going to read?

book review

Reasons for the unpopularity of reviews

Now, I’m not an expert on this subject. Everything I know about blogging and the blogosphere comes from personal experience which is hardly generalisable. However, I can imagine several reasons why reviews are less popular than other posts:

  • We already have such long TBRs, we hardly need to add to it
  • Some people only read reviews of books they have already read with fear of being spoiled
  • Reviews can be long and wordy and require more concentration to read than other posts that are easily skimmable
  • People feel guilty commenting on reviews – “Great review!” isn’t socially accepted, but sometimes you just don’t have more to say than that
  • Reviews tend to be more rigid and descriptive than other posts; some might find them *gasps* boring
  • Certain ARCs are everywhere; reading a review of the same book over and over just isn’t appealing
  • Like Tolstoy and his families, good reviews tend to be similar while bad reviews have endless diversity, and bad reviews will therefore be read more often
  • Sadly(?) though, most of us read books we enjoy, resulting in an overwhelming load of generally positive reviews
  • Reviews don’t give you free stuff to comment
What does this mean for book blogging?

When I started blogging, a few memes existed (like Follow Friday, In My Mailbox, and Teaser Tuesday). On non-meme days, blogs posted reviews. Writing reviews was part of being a book blogger. As the blogging world moved towards a more graphic-based concept rather than a word-based concept, many book bloggers started questioning the need of reviews. You can easily have a book blog, in which you talk about books, without having to do these structured posts on individual books with ratings and all the works. Blogs now have to be pleasing to the eye; an evidence for this is how many bloggers mention an appealing design as a reason to follow a blog, or to visit a blog again.

Left out of this movement are bloggers like me – bloggers who started their blog as an Goodreads-offspring. Goodreads is decidedly review-based, although even here graphics in the form of GIFs have made an appearance. Are we out-dated? I personally love reading reviews. Not only do they give me an insight in a book I might or might not have read, but it also gives me a glimpse of the reading life of the reviewer. Isn’t the first thing a book lover asks another book lover “have you read book X? what did you think?!”. I want to know what other people think of books. Other posts are fabulous too, but I want to know your opinion on books we have in common.

I don’t feel like reviews make a book blogger, or that every blog should post reviews. However, I think the blogosphere would be a sad place when no one would review books any more.

What do you think? Do you still read or write reviews?

Literary Fiction Mini-Reviews #3

Title: Disgrace
Author: J.M. Coetzee
First Publication: 1999

Like many post-modern literary novels, Disgrace starts with sex. Professor David Lurie thinks he has everything worked out. Once a week he visits a prostitute, he teaches at the university, and once in a while he talks to his ex-wife or his daughter. An affair with a student makes his entire system collapse, and he is shunned from his life.

Disgrace is a double novel. We follow the disgrace of David, and the disgrace of his daughter. It’s both about being human, and about being a human in post-apartheid South-Africa. The writing style is clipped and dry. I found the story of David’s daughter, who lives as a white single woman in a black dominated countryside fascinating, though heart-breaking. Disgrace isn’t a history lesson, but a tale of what it’s like for some people to live in South-Africa. I can’t really speak about its accuracy, but since Coetzee has won a Nobel Prize for literature I trust his judgement.

Title: Sense & Sensibility
Author: Jane Austen
First Publication: 1811

My least favourite Austen so far. Although I loved Elinor, I didn’t care much for any of the love interests for her and Marianne. The last quarter of the book dragged somewhat, and the resolution didn’t leave me with the warm feelings I was hoping it would. The writing is amazing on a sentence-level, and her characterisations are amusing as ever, but her later works are a lot more polished and tighter in execution.

This book is part of my Classics Club challenge.

Title: Waiting for Godot
Author: Samuel Beckett
First Publication: 1952

I might give this a higher or lower rating, if I had understood what this play was about. I have some vague concept of some of the themes Waiting for Godot touches, for example, “Godot” very much contains the word “God”, but I probably need to study this text more closely to get something out of it. It was easy enough to read, and has some comical scenes in it in a slapstick kind of way. Like many modern/postmodern texts it seems to be about going in circles and the pointlessness of life. I wonder why literary fiction writers are never happy people.

Review: The Body Electric by Beth Revis (Blog Tour)

Title: The Body Electric
Author: Beth Revis
Series: None
Rating: 3 Stars

351 pages
Published October 6th 2014 by Scripturient Books
Review copy received from Xpresso Book Tours

Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository

After a terrible war, people will do anything to keep the peace.

Ella is the daughter of two scientists, one who was amazing with androids and nanobots, and one who discovers Reveries. Inside a Reverie, people sleep and dream lucidly about one of their memories. When Ella discovers she can enter other people’s Reverie, she gets caught up in a plot that concerns national security.

For the first ten percent, I held my heart. The Body Electric got real close to being too similar to Inception. The way Ella enters someone else’s dream, and the imagery of it was corresponding with the movie almost exactly. I was relieved when after the introductory action, the resemblance dissipates, and The Body Electric stands on its own.

My love for Ella was cemented when she punches a creepy guy in the face. FINALLY. That’s what you do when someone sneakily approaches you. You don’t swoon or fall in love, no, you punch him. Or kick. Or run.

Although Ella’s parents are scientists, and she has helped them occasionally, she’s not a scientist herself. I was slightly disappointed by this, because for once I would love a female scientist YA protagonist. I wasn’t too sad though, because on all other fronts she’s a likeable and realistic character.

The Body Electric has extremely short chapters, and all of them have a clear sense of action. The story hurls forward quickly, though not always believably. Some of the elements I found to be too easy, too convenient, or too contrived. Lovers of the genre will find plenty to love in The Body Electric. It has high stakes, lovable characters, and an interesting world.

Blurb

The future world is at peace.

Ella Shepherd has dedicated her life to using her unique gift—the ability to enter people’s dreams and memories using technology developed by her mother—to help others relive their happy memories.

But not all is at it seems.

Ella starts seeing impossible things—images of her dead father, warnings of who she cannot trust. Her government recruits her to spy on a rebel group, using her ability to experience—and influence—the memories of traitors. But the leader of the rebels claims they used to be in love—even though Ella’s never met him before in her life. Which can only mean one thing…

Someone’s altered her memory.

Ella’s gift is enough to overthrow a corrupt government or crush a growing rebel group. She is the key to stopping a war she didn’t even know was happening. But if someone else has been inside Ella’s head, she cannot trust her own memories, thoughts, or feelings.

So who can she trust?

The Happy Blog: 13 Guidelines to a Positive Community

Some of you might have noticed that over time, the blogging community has become a sad, vicious place. It’s filled with jealousy, envy, anger, resentment, and honestly, just every negative emotion you can think of. Instead of supporting each other, we go behind each other’s backs to get those coveted ARCs.

I generally don’t get mixed up in all of this. When drama hits the fan on Twitter, I don’t go on Twitter. I unfollowed all of the known instigators of drama. I’ve done everything I can to protect myself from the negativity, but it’s still there and I can still see it.

So I’ve decided that it’s time for some perspective.

1. Everyone is awesome (until it is proven they’re not – there will always be a bad apple)

2. Someone who is not awesome, can still go back to being awesome. Holding grudges serves no one

3. All book bloggers are book lovers

4. Book lovers, like all kinds of lovers, are awesome

5. Just like there is no one way to love a person, there is no one way to love a book

6. Other hobbies are valid. Reading isn’t superior over other pass times

7. Reading is what makes readers awesome. Not what they read, how they read, where they read, or who they read

8. All book genres and age groups are equally fabulous, just like the people who read them and the people who write them

9. Anyone who blogs, is a blogger. And every blogger deserves praise because come on, blogging is hard

10. Each blog is unique like every person is unique

11. A long, eloquent comment is amazing. But so is a short, heartfelt “I love this post!”

12. Actually, just reading a blog post is pretty great

13. Blogs aren’t people, and people aren’t blogs. There is more to a person than one way they choose to express themselves in

The blogging community is what we ourselves make of it. So send a (virtual) hug to a blogger today, and let us remember that we all like books, and that we all prefer to be happy and talk about books rather than chasing the drama llama.

Review: Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

Title: Dead Reckoning
Author: Charlaine Harris
Series: Sookie Stackhouse #11
Rating: 2.5 Stars

325 pages
Published May 2011 by Gollancz
Bought

Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository

I used to be a huge Charlaine Harris fan. Her books have always been so comfortable to me. Our ideal relationship has reached a rocky patch now, after some not-so-great reads. Like many other people, I’m developing a love/hate relationship with Ms Harris, and the Sookie Stackhouse series in particular.

Merlotte’s is firebombed, and Sookie has no idea who’s behind it. All she knows is that it was a supernatural – probably a were or shifter of some kind. While trying to stay alive, she also has to juggle her relationship with Eric, and finds out more about her heritage.

When you lay out the plot like that, it looks better than it actually was. Plotting isn’t the strongest point of the Sookie series, but the plot in Dead Reckoning was especially skimpy. There was no central conflict, just a few things that happened to Sookie. She takes the hits, then goes on to angst and paint her toenails.

What has drawn in thousands of readers of the Sookie books are the lovely characters. Sookie the spunky girl-next-door with a special ability, vampire Bill the mysterious but sweet guy, Eric the cool vampire viking, Pam the cold but hilarious second in command… But in Dead Reckoning, all of the characters have lost their sparkle. Sookie is dead tired with being killed and all the vampire drama. Bill barely gets any page time, but when he does, he’s just weird. Eric, who was such an amazing character at the start of the series, is just brooding and lame now. Even sarcastic Pam seems to have lost her appetite for being bitchy and awesome. There have been rumours about how Ms Harris didn’t really feel like writing the last few books, and it shows. There is no love, no passion in her writing for these characters we’ve come to adore.

About halfway through the book finally gains some speed, and the finale was decent. It just makes me sad where this story is going. I wish Ms Harris had wrapped up the series in ten books, instead of this weird extension that no one seems to enjoy.

Blurb

With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover Eric Northman and his “child” Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot-which is much more complicated than she knows…
