SpecialsSpecials is the third installment in ”Uglies” series. I liked the first two books but after reading this one I felt as if the series will never end! Tally, the protagonist female character of this book changes herself into every possible personalities available. First she was ugly then pretty and now she is special.

Tally is a special now, she has undergone this surgery to make herself super fast, skilled killing machine specially built to keep the uglies down and   pretties stupid. These special people are called as cutters, their main goal is to find New smoke and destroy it. But Tally is engineered to feel superior, she feels annoyed even in her pretty boyfriend’s company. She wants to change him into a special too, for that she follows a plan. A plan where her boyfriend can be turned into special and new smoke can be found and destroyed.

One of things I really enjoyed is how different Tally becomes in each book. From Ugly to Pretty to Special, her entire personality shifts and changes constantly as she undergoes not just plastic surgery, but mental surgery. But at the same time special Tally was annoying, it’s terribly frustrating knowing she’s been brainwashed, but she refuses to believe it. The way she looks down at her boyfriend made me hate her. But all together it was a bittersweet ending to the trilogy. Oh! wait, can I call it trilogy cause there is  4th book in the series- Extras. My rating: 2 out of 5. I would like to read and see what is there in the next book, but not right now.

Saga Volume 2

I am pulling out the 5 stars, if you are a close follower of my blog you will know that I don’t do this often. But this book compelled me to do that. From starting to beginning the book was so fresh and stimulating. Brian K Vaughan’s epic Saga continues, as does the awesomeness from the first volume! If you haven’t read the first volume then better pick that up before you start reading this volume.

A couple of star-crossed lovers from two different species  who are on opposing sides of a danderous war are on the run in a wooden rocket ship with their infant daughter and her ghost babysitter. What can be more exciting than this? But baby Hazel has this strange adventure to face- her grand parents.

Saga Volume 2

I am so in love with this series. I wish I could get my hands on volume 3 as soon as possible. This is totally 6 out of 5 stars category. You will agree with me after looking at this picture of our handsome hero from the book 🙂
