The Supervillain and Me by Danielle Banas

Book Summary:
Never trust a guy in spandex.
In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.
That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.
After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.

My Review:

I adore this book a lot. I really like the story idea of superheroes roaming around and they get their first supervillian. Did enjoy all the characters in the book. Which was a lot to keep track of.

Abby, I liked her in the book. I enjoyed her. I don’t care for superheroes attitude in the book. It was fun watching her not easily impressed with supers. Once Iron Phantom appears, things change. She wonders who he is under the mask after he save her life. Can she trust a man wearing black ?

Iron Phantom, mysterious guy who save people but accused of being a supervillain. I love him in the book. Think he just misunderstood in the book. He can’t be all that evil if he keeps saving Abby life, right? There got to be a reason why he making a mess in the city.

Iron Phantom reminds me of another supervillian who is misunderstood at times. I do enjoy villains stories a lot. How they became evil or just mistaken being evil also. Take Loki as an example.

This book was action pack and very fun read. For fans of superheroes and supervillains a like will enjoy this book. Lots of guessing on what’s going on in the book and a cool plot twist.

Happy Reading!!!

Renegades- Marissa Meyer

A0C6C2A3-B60F-419C-9922-2FF0A1812817Hello Everyone! My name is Stacy and I’ll be a guest blogger for today! I would like to introduce you guys to Louie. Louie is our rescue dog who loves books! We are reviewing Renegades to celebrate its release tomorrow. Enjoy!!

Synopsis:

Secret Identities.
Extraordinary Powers.
She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies―humans with extraordinary abilities―who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice―and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to the villains who have the power to end them both.

My Review:

  ”All revolutions come with death. Some must die so that others might have a life. It is a tragedy, but it is also a truth.”

⚠️ ⚠️ Warning!!! Warning!!! Unpopular opinion is here!!! ⚠️ ⚠️

Just like everyone else I was freaking out to get my hands on an arc copy of this. I stomped my foot, placed my hands on my hips, and cried a cry of a thousand children. My friend picked me up a copy at NYCC and I felt that my life was complete (Sorry, Trent) Like the dark and gloomy sky opened up and shot a rainbow my way.

Then I actually started to read it. It breaks my heart to say that this was way beyond disappointing. I actually frowned the entire time while reading this, frowned!!!

Renegades starts off with a bang, literally. Thirtyish pages in and I was enthralled. It kicked into high-packed action and thought it would be like that throughout. It reached its peak at thirtyish pages and dropped like a rock in a river. It reached its highest point way too early and struggled to pick itself back up.

It was a lot of yakking and a lot less action. You would think for a superhero novel that it was going to be a lot of sabotage, secrets, and karate chops to the throat. (Shaking head and pouting)

Can we all take a minute and talk about The Sentinel? How in the living hell did no one know who this character was? Seriously!? Whenever he appeared, a very prominent member disappeared! Put it together people! My brain throbs just thinking about this!

Renegades disheartened me so much that I would love to have my three days back. Over four hundred pages of superhero clichés and I don’t even want to think about crime fighting for a very long time.

Are you ready for an extremely long and tedious display of so-called Superheroes?
