Mini Reviews: Crash by Lisa McMann and What Really Happened in Peru by Cassandra Clare

Title: Crash
Author: Lisa McMann
Series: Visions #1
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Date Published: January 8, 2013
Buy: Amazon
The only books I’ve read by the author other than this one are the first two books in the Dream Catchers series. The two books are similar in some ways but different in others, I want to compare the two but I cannot seem to. I want to say Crash is better but then I remember something equally good about Fade or Wake. I did give this one a higher rating though by 0.5 because of the ending. Lisa is full of surprises. Her books are original in ways you won’t find in the YA genre and I love her for it. 
Jules is a great character, she is determined and hardworking and smart and makes good choices. Even though Jules is in love with Sawyer, she never acts like a jealous or insecure person, whereas Janie (the main character from the Dream Catchers series) was slightly insecure. Her determination is evident from the fact that even when Sawyer was clearly telling her to let it go, she didn’t, she didn’t care about what he thought, she had to do it for herself if not for him and so it was her decision in the end. The plot is great and so are the other characters, I recommend this book to everyone.

Oh Magnus. I am so excited for the rest of his tales. I think it might be possible that this set of short series becomes my favorite.

It's nice to learn more about Magnus. He is a charming, funny guy but he has his own set of insecurities. In the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices you don't really see the other side of him. We all assume him to be a happy guy and that's exactly what Magnus wants. He hides from his own insecurities because he doesn't know how to face them. What he wants is for someone to appreciate him for who he is. His mother committed suicide after she found out what she was and most of his human lovers give up on him after a while. It's not that nice of a life.

Ha, I make this short story sound sad but it's not, it's hilarious because common it's Magnus, he is always going to make things awesome because that's what he does. 

Although I really do hope things work out for him and Alec in CoHF because Magnus (and Alec) deserves it. He deserves a chance.
