Haiku Reviews: The Last Days, The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl, Flygirl

Trying out something new. Instead of regular old mini reviews, it’s haiku reviews! That’s much more fun, right? Well, I had fun.

I went with the 5-7-5 set-up, and since one haiku seemed too little for some of them, I did at least two for each book. So, read each review as a whole, not each haiku as separate poems.

Improvement on Peeps
Rock and roll saves the planet;
Romance, action, fun.

Creepy vampires,
Still hate them and their bug eyes.
Glad this is last book.

Good book, but I
Prefer my vamps virus-free;
(And with smaller eyes).

Hated everyone,
Worried ’bout them anyway;
Won’t read sequel, though.

Why did I care then?
The writing made me do it.
Would read another.

Just not one with them.
Too much like 90’s teen film;
I’ve moved on from that.

Excellent story;
Good discussion about race
And gender inside.

Tries a little hard
To get the point across, but
Would be good for schools.
