Review by Sahana

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth

4 stars of 5

This is a Coming of Age YA book, targeted for LGBTQ readers. I would recommend it for readers aged 15-18. Likely not suitable for readers below that age, because of sexually implicit scenes, language, and some dark themes. The protagonist’s parents are killed at the very beginning of the book, and another character attempts suicide; readers who are squeamish about such themes should not read this book. There is also plenty of drinking and smoking. It is important to note that this is not a romance novel, as the protagonist never actually gets into a real relationship. The writing itself takes a lot of time to read and process, and the sentences are very verbose and descriptive. It is very thought-provoking, and even somewhat philosophical, but it is certainly not a book for light reading. However, the reader will get some laughs out of the dialogue and description.

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson 

4 and a half stars of 5

The story and the series follow three main characters: Dalinar Kholin, the Blackthorn; Kaladin, a soldier that was sold into slavery; and Shallan Davar, a lighteyes who is attempting to save her house from debt.

What makes Sanderson’s writing stand out more than any other writer is
