Unhinged (Splintered, #2)


By: A.G. Howards

Genre: YA fantasy

Pages: 387

Published: 2014

Read: September

2 out of 5

The first two books in this trilogy were back-to-back nominees for Teens’ Top Ten. Although at the beginning of Unhinged I was more engrossed than Splintered I quickly lost interest. I struggled to finish the book. The quality of writing was still there and the story wasn’t rushed, but I feel this particular adventure isn’t unique or interesting enough to be a nominee. There were no new characters introduced or any twists on Alice in Wonderland. I am not saying it’s a bad book, some may like it, but I definitely read better books that should have been nominated. My biggest issue with this award is that sequels can be nominated therefore, I’m worried that the final book, Ensnared, will make the list next year.
