    AWESOME Egyptian Debut

    Jane Unwrapped was a breath of fresh YA air. Following Jane on her journey through ancient Egypt kept me on the edge of my seat and constantly wanting more. I honestly read this book in one sitting because I could not put it down. I loved the character development and mystery surrounding Jane’s time in the Duat and the confusion behind her not having a heart. I also loved that Jane was a science nerd. All of her science-y metaphors throughout brought a smile to my face. And, let’s not forget about the brooding and mysterious God, Anubis, for being wonderfully complex throughout. Leah and Kate Rooper took time to make sure their characters and setting were factually accurate and the hard work showed—I personally had never learned much about Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, and I was happy to find that my research after finishing the book matched up well with the novel. Jane Unwrapped is like Percy Jackson for Egyptian Mythology. My only complaint is that I wanted to explore this world for longer. Fact: Jane Unwrapped brings an exciting new voice and adventure to the realm of YA lit. Hypothesis: Jane’s story will enter the hearts of many. Experiment: GO AND READ IT FOR PETE’S SAKE! Conclusion: 5/5 stars.

    Really good!!

    So we all know that I totally pick books based on the titles and covers. So when I heard about this one I was like "YAAAASSSSSS a mummy book!!! Love it." I am really glad that I did pick this one. It was a little out of the norm and it held my attention. If I had not had a ton of stuff going on this month I think I would have gotten through this book in a day. I was busy so it took like 3 days. I love Greek mythology and when I was little I loved King Tut. I have never really paid attention to Egyptian mythology but from what I read in this book it is interesting. Jane was an interesting character. She basically lived her life for her future, never enjoying anything in the present. When she dies, she realizes all that she missed. At first you think that Anubis is a jerk and you don't really like him. As the book goes along you see that he is really a great, caring and fair god. At first I really liked Tut but then I started to dislike him. I was very back and forth on him. All in all I think that if you like mythology, with a little romance and mystery this book is for you. I liked watching all the characters grow. I am giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5. Go get it!!!
