Blog Focus: Jenny Blenk
A lifelong bibliophile, Jenny works at an independent bookstore (Village Books) as a bookseller and is a blogger, reviewer, and aspiring writer. Her favorite genres are Young Adult and Speculative Fiction, but she also reads Science, General Fiction, and History from time to time. Jenny most enjoys reviewing books that present something new - an idea or an interpretation - and that will spark ideas and discussion among readers. When she's not reading, Jenny enjoys writing, gardening, hiking, playing with her pet rabbit, and spending time with close friends.
Jenny and I have both reviewed the following books:
THE ARCHIVED by VICTORIA SCHAWB
Jenny’s summary: What if when you died your memories were stored as a History in a vast secret library? Mac works for the Archive, catching and returning ghosts that wake up and escape. But now there's something going wrong in the Archive: Histories are waking up left and right, and Mac seems to be right in the middle of it.
Jenny’s summary: Alina has never really shown much promise at anything. It's her best friend Mal who's always had the talents, been the center of attention. But when their company is attacked during a dangerous crossing, Alina suddenly manifests a rare magic that could be used to either save or destroy the kingdom. A hefty dose of Russian cultural influence gives this awesome story a distinctive flavor, too!
AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES by JOHN GREEN
Jenny’s summary: It's not easy being a prodigy, especially when you don't think you'll ever achieve true genius. In a desperate attempt to make his mark on the world, Colin decides to come up with a mathematical formula to predict the arc of a relationship using his nineteen previous relationships - all with girls named Katherine - as a starting point. Cue the wit, hilarity, and teenage summer fun!
