Anyway, this weeks question comes from Hesperia Loves Books.
I'm generally attracted to covers that are eye catching, big bold colours...something that isn't boring basically. Anything with a lot of blue is a big bonus as well...I love blue! Either way I wasn't particularly grabbed by the cover of I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore but since my friend kept pushing it under my nose I had to give it a read. You know what? I did really enjoy the book, and subsequently the film. It's more of a science fiction novel, but it's not so complicated that I had trouble following. Some science fictions completely lose me which is why I'm careful about which ones I pick up.Here's the blurb:
There were nine. Three are dead. I Am Number Four.
Nine teenagers and their guardians are hiding on Earth... protected by a charm that means they can only be killed in numeric order, three are already dead. John Smith is Number Four. And his mortal enemies, the Mogadorian, are hunting him down.
The only way to keep off radar is to keep moving, never staying in one place for long. Finally in the firing line, all he can do is adopt the guise of a student and pray his unusual gifts—his legacies home; Planet Lorien—stay hidden long enough for him to settle into this new community.
But others seem to sense his otherness and when small-town life sucks him into its intrigues, it’s only a matter of time before his true nature is revealed. And that means there’s no space for love, friendship or a future if it means protecting not only himself, but the other five...
It's great, fast paced with enough action to keep me interested, a touch of romance is involved. The Power of Six (book #2) is on my TBR list.
Ok, that's what I thought, what about you guys? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.
Catch you later!
