I always prefer my books the way I prefer the weather or my state of mind: happy, bright and leaving me buzzing and inspired. No endless monologues on the weight of life for me - I'm gloomy enough as it is, thank you very much! ;)
Back in January I finished Fly By Night by Frances Hardinge, and what I loved almost more than the book itself, was the fact that there was going to be a sequel! So, as soon as it came out, I ordered Twilight Robbery (also known as Fly Trap) and devoured it withing a week :)
The verdict: it's even better than the first! Fun and adventurous, written with so much wit and energy I just couldn't put it down! It made me wish I could write like Frances!!
Unfortunately for me, I can't. So now all I can do...
... is hope for another sequel :)
