Magonia

So, this was a weird one. I will say that I did like it, but it was just so weird.

Without spoiling anything, this book is about a girl named Aza who has had trouble breathing all her life. On her sixteenth birthday she finds out that she couldn’t breath because she doesn’t belong to this world, she actually belongs to a world that exists about us; Magonia. I’ll get more into the story below in the spoilers.

Even though I did enjoy this book, I found it very boring and hard to get into, especially in the beginning. For the first 8 chapters, there is barely any dialog. It’s basically all Aza’s thoughts about how she is always sick, and always in the hospital, and how she is so rebellious. And in the first 8, you get one chapter from her friends point of view and he basically does the same thing. I don’t know, I didn’t like that.

But like I said, I liked it, but I didn’t love it. I really wanted to though, especially with that big ‘ole Neil Gaiman quote at the top. I love his books, so I was full of hope with his endorsement of this one.

I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads, and I’ll continue the series, even though reading it, it felt like this was a stand alone and wrapped up in the end. I saw that it was a series, so if it really is I’ll continue it.  Continue reading
