Wolf Tower by Tanith Lee
Welp…I think this is the lowest rating I’ve ever given on this blog, since its inception. Oh jeez…well, I still need to review it and give my reasons as to why. So, let’s get to it.
This book was sent to me as part of @youthbookreview’s Traveling Book Project and I was interested, part was because the title had the word “wolf” in it; I love wolves! They’re amazing. The second reason I was interested was because it was essentially a diary; I love books that are diaries, or journals, as they give an insight into the mind of the “author”/main character. And this book most definitely gave me an insight into a teenage girl’s mind and all I can think was, “Holy Moses…I can remember being like this…” Yep, it was a teenage girl’s diary after she helped release a captured man from the dungeon’s of the only home she knew and they traversed across the desert to his home in a different city.
Oh. My. Gosh….I love the idea, I love the concept. I do not like the main character. She could have done a lot of things different. And her thought process made me want to bang my head on the desk. GAH! But that’s how teenagers think…and I know that 12-13 year old me would have liked this book a lot more. But 25 year old me does not. And that’s okay. I am glad I read this book if just to read a different book than what I would read right now.
