I live in the mountains of western North Carolina with my family, where I enjoy reading, playing games, and eating pizza.



Trigger warnings: Death of a grandmother, storms, fire, animal attack, flood
Note that I bought this book and now I own it.

8.5/10, this was an amazing novel from Alan Gratz, the best novel he has written by far and this is after I've read three of his novels up until this point which were Allies, Grenade and refugee all of which I've enjoyed but this author manages to outdo himself with his latest work, the execution is almost perfect so where do I even begin? As usual, the stories in the book were immersive and real and each revolved around the four main characters Owen, George, Akira and Natalie and these characters were unique in their own way and they were disconnected from one another but each of them were unique in its own way. What really impressed me was the realism and detail in the stories, I could really feel them, they were terrifying, but all too real. At least there's a conference at the end, to add a little hope to the story, by making the characters rally for action against climate change. Definitely recommended if you are a fan of Alan Gratz. The only other book I can think of that is similar to this is Global by Eoin Colfer though I can say even that does not compare to Two Degrees.… (mer)

Sounds like a good book.
Update: this was an interesting, but good book nonetheless. The mystery was very intriguing, and Captain America fights against the ghost army, but I didn't know where they came from until later on in the book, created by a classic evil genius and mad scientist, who is following his father on some sort of plan, but that is left unanswered, maybe it would be revealed in the next book in the series. The sidekick character, Bucky, was interesting to read, and I liked his dynamic with Sofia and Captain America. If you like comic books set in the past, this is the book for you.… (mer)

Representation: Black character
Trigger warnings: World War Two themes, death of soldiers, explosions, gun violence, fire
Note that I bought this book and now I own it.

8/10, this is one of the few books that still hold up to this day ever since I first read this and picked this up from a second-hand store and I would still pick this up and read this again, this came from a brilliant author whose books I continue to read and he does a much better job at entertaining me than other similar books from other authors in this genre; it really puts me straight in the action so where do I begin. It starts off with a grand total of four main characters, Dee, Samira, James and Henry who each have their part to play in D-Day and all their stories are disconnected at first but soon they connect eventually. Dee is a soldier who just arrived at the beach ready to start the operation, Samira is part of the French resistance trying anything she can to slow down the German invasion by sabotaging it, James is a paratrooper also helping the allies as well as Henry who is a medic. Their combined efforts show themselves across the book and alongside the action in almost every page and the vivid details of the war I could really enjoy this and empathise with all these characters and the great sacrifices they've made in this war.… (mer)

Representation: Asian main character
Trigger warnings: Explosions, suicide, racism, death of a soldier, military violence and war themes, World War Two
Update: I read Two Degrees, and it was so good.

8/10, after reading Allies, I looked for another book written by Alan Gratz and I found one in one of the libraries I go to, one of them was Grenade so I went in with high expectations considering that I enjoyed his last books and wow was it amazing since it was so immersive and filled with action so where do I even begin? It revolves around two main characters Hideki and Ray and they are on opposite sides of the war since one is American and the other is Japanese. It was kind of sad to see Ray die though and I would have loved to see Hideki and Ray meeting together at the end of the war but unfortunately, this never happened. I can't wait to read Two Degrees, by the same author, that book will be the fourth book he has made that I will read, I bet it will be just as good as this book and all the other books by him as well.… (mer)
