Cabeswater Reading Challenge

In a matter of days, we will be saying adios to 2016 and hellooooo to 2017. Now we know most people abandon their new year’s resolutions by the time February comes along, but we’re gonna try to hold out (until March, at least– kidding!).

We have come across a number of wonderful reads in 2016 and we can’t wait to find out what other books we’ll discover in 2017. However, we notice that we tend to get caught up in the YA madness that we might have missed out on gems in other genres. That is why, as a resolution in the new year of 2017, we are breaking out of our comfort zones with the Cabeswater Reading Challenge!

When We Don’t Like The Main Character – A Rant

Please tell me you’ve been there too

There’s no denying that here at Cabeswater we fall in love with books all the time. At the same time, however, there were more than a few books that left us with a bitter taste in our mouths.
Picture this: You pick up a book with an amazing premise, glorious cover, great ratings on Goodreads, etc. only to put it back down – or in some cases hurl it to the other side of the room – because you don’t like the main character.

Review: The Last Star

A bittersweet ending, but mostly bitter

the2blast2bstar2bby2brick2byanceyTitle: The Last Star

Author: Rick Yancey

Synopsis: The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.

They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.

5 Honest Comments on The Raven King

The release of the final instalment to our beloved The Raven Cycle last April was undeniably bittersweet. We were so grieved that we needed the whole of eight months to mourn before we could publish this post. Okay, not entirely true. Our absence from Cabeswater was majorly held liable by our senior year demands and graduation (and starting university and adjusting to a new life and basically every other empty excuse you can think of).

Despite everything, we are here to talk about it now! And you know what they say, better to be late than never. Continue reading “5 Honest Comments on The Raven King”

Finally!

So we know we promised we’d be back by June (time check: it’s almost December), but hey — the best promises are the ones worth breaking, right?

Long story short, we graduated high school this June and we are now taking our first steps into full-blown adulthood. As it turns out, there was a lot more that we had to deal with as we go through this phase of transition from pesky teenagers into “responsible” adults. All of which you can read more about in our newly updated Meet The Writers page.

Finally, after nearly a year, Cabeswater is up and running again!   Continue reading “Finally!”
