    One thought on “Wordless”

    1. 4.5 starsMy college counselor, of all people, gave me this book to review last year She was related or connected to the author in some way and gave me an autographed copy for free because she had been looking at my college applications and knew that I ran this blog It took me an incredibly long time to get to this book since I was busy with school and always reading other things, but I wish I d gotten to it sooner since it is one of the better books I ve gotten for review in a long time.The worl [...]

    2. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty Wordless was entirely original and extremely engaging, with strong aspects of world building.Opening Sentence I d heard the story when I was a kid.The Review In Wordless, certain humans have been granted with the power of the Words, unlimited Godlike power There is the Word of Life, who can heal and bring back the recently dead with a touch There is the Word of Earth, who controls the elements on earth They live in Eden City, and the lower on the s [...]

    3. Oh My God YA Crack I could NOT put this book down The language, actions, love at first sight, everything screams TEENAGE BOY I will 100% buy this book when it comes out My guys, and girls, will love it I don t know how to classify Wordless as a genre, which is important since I m genre fied my library I would probably put it in Paranormal because some of the world is similar to our own It s not a fantasy, other world and it s not a dystopian because this isn t a future world It s today, if The W [...]

    4. Tavin Barnes is an illiterate wordless trash collector and he knows that will never change He was found abandoned as a baby and raised in his wordless world After being assigned to Eden City to collect trash, Khaya, the Word of Life, stages an escape and Tavin is quickly pulled into the world of the Words and the political intrigue he knew nothing about The city s elite will do anything to get Khaya back, but won t admit to the public that she is missing Do these teens have what it takes to outs [...]

    5. A nice concept and characters I was racing through the pages for most of it I loved Tavin and Khaya and how the romance between them slowly blossomed.It was scary how greedy Eden City was for power and how they kept the Words prisoner the ending of the book was a suprise too, set up nicely for the next installment.In spite of everything I did like love about the idea I felt disconnected from it at some point, not sure when how it happened but I started to want to hurry up and finish it.The world [...]

    6. First thing s first WORDLESS is one of the best books I ve ever read Strickland has a phenomenal talent for blending unique world building, excellent characterization, and pacing that will keep you flipping through the pages until the end I cannot speak highly enough of this book.So let s start with the world building, shall we On the surface, it seems like Eden City is quite a bit different from the real world After all, the real world doesn t contain human beings who have the power to bid the [...]

    7. I have always lived by the philosophy that Words have Power When you speak them, you give them meaning That were never true than with this story In a world where certain people have been given power over words, and certain words affect our reality, two teenagers defy the Gods and attempt to change society Tavin is wordless, meaning his words have no power Khaya is the exact opposite, she is the Word of Life Khaya escapes Eden City with Tavin s help and so our story begins.The center of power, E [...]

    8. And the Words became Flesh All it took were those words, and i knew I m going to give this book 5 stars It was a very unique experience and adventure for me reading this book I ran, hid, held my breath, and swam with them The story in general is very intriguing.Some books start really well but disappoint in the middle I watched out for that part but there was NONE everything was well placed and well thought There was enough thrill, enough humor, lots of adventure, enough romance and friendship, [...]

    9. We all know that words have power, but AdriAnne Strickland s debut takes that idea and makes it literal In the world of wordless, there are the Words god like being who are inscribed with words that have the power to make and unmake, and the Wordless the teaming masses of the unwashed illiterate, who look up to Words the way that we look to celebrities.In a word, the premise is just brilliant Luckily, the rest of the book follows through on its promise.Wordless is a non stop, keep you guessing a [...]

    10. Heaven has given me a little gift I just received this book two days before the release date I cannot wait to read this My thoughts now that I have read this Wow Just wow That endingI did not see it coming I can t wait to see how Ms Strickland develops the story from there.This book was imaginative and wonderful andyou ll just have to read it to find out As for me, I will be twiddling my thumbs for the next two years, impatiently waiting for Lifeless and Boundless The waiting may very well drive [...]

    11. Wow AdriAnne Strickland tackled some complex ideas here and she did it with surprising humor and style International politics, love, government manipulation it s all here in book one of what should be a fantastic and popular series I m trying to be careful not to give anything away, which is difficult But I will say that this book has a wiz bang ending that already has me salivating for book 2

    12. This was an enjoyable read It had an interesting premise only select individuals have the ability to read because words are so powerful Along with the new element of actual Words people who have the ability of the words Death, Life, Earth, etc The unique story along with fun twists along the way make this book worth reading.

    13. A wild, roller coaster ride of a book with so many great moments along the way I thought the alternative reality aspect of Wordless was especially fascinating Loved the idea of the words made flesh and all the implications of that idea The characters were complex and engaging Can t wait to read 2

    14. I loved this book It s very original and the story and characters kept me interested and on the edge throughout the entire book I couldn t put it down It was fast paced and fun with the right amount of romance, and a totally shocking ending that makes it so you can t wait for the second book, Lifeless Loved it I highly recommend

    15. Great start to a new series Wordless has innovative world building and equally innovative characters I enjoyed the ways language took on a life of its own so to speak , as well as the implied connections between literacy and power I m looking forward to the next book Highly recommended.

    16. This is an interesting alternate history urban fantasy for young adults The kids were really sweet and ernest somehow They had tempers, they weren t perfect But they had all been so sheltered, even the ones who had been terribly abused depending how you look at it , that they actually felt emotionally like the inexperienced kids that they were supposed to be in the book and it worked for the story Even Tavin, who s lived in the city his whole life, seemed very innocent, apparently life in Eden C [...]

    17. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review It does not affect the outcome of my review in any way.My first Flux book was Some Quiet Place, and I was so struck by the rich complexity and uniqueness of the story, that it kind of imprinted on me Now, any book from Flux I see, I really want to read So, of course, when I read the synopsis of Wordless, I knew I had to read it.The idea behind Wordless is fascinating and wholly unique It was basically taking the idea of stick and st [...]

    18. I m a huge fan of young adult fiction, but it holds the dubious distinction of the highest rate of books I ve finished and been sorely disappointed by Most YA is an easy read, so it s easy to finish and then be grumpy about being suckered into reading a sub part story after the fact They almost all hit the checkbox young character develops, romance, blah blah blah It s done with all the subtlety of a Turducken Wordless has the distinction of sucking you in with characters you care about immediat [...]

    19. This is also a book I will re read It s one of my favorite reads this year Wordless was very enjoyable and a bit emotional at times The characters were all well developed, even secondary ones I enjoyed learning about the character s histories and seeing how that influenced their current actions I also really liked all the characters especially the Word of Life It was refreshing to see a character that strong who also favors nonviolence Seeing her wrestle with what was happening and how she shoul [...]

    20. This is one of those books that you want to stay up to read because it is so good I really like it when the author makes the reader feel that they want to be best friends with the main character And they don t give the main character any annoying flaws Also it was a good change for me the main character is a boy and it took me out of all the girly books I ve been reading, I think I enjoy this book a lot because I like all the characters in this book It s a fantasy book with some action, magic an [...]

    21. Nooooooo I need D I really liked the world building here fitting fantasy into the real world can easily turn clunky, but this felt believable Tavin and Khaya and their later companions were given a good mix of strengths and foibles, and their growth over the course of the story seemed natural I appreciated view spoiler Pavati s hide spoiler ability to give backstory in a way that wasn t an obvious info dump Also she is awesome, and will take no bullshit A good mix of mythos, action, and politic [...]

    22. Tavin s head was a great place to be.I LOVE authors who can write nice guys that still know how to fight So, there was this one twist that when it happened, I was like, okay, yeah I knew there was SOMETHING here But it was still good.And then my reactions to the last twist went like this WHA And then AWESOME.Followed by I NEED THE NEXT BOOK LOOOVE the ending of this one LOVE also WHEW Because i met this author, and she lives near me, and she s super awesome, so I was extra scared I wouldn t like [...]

    23. Great book, I loved the incorporation of other languages and cultures that you don t always see in young adult books I also liked the ties into real world politics of the different countries Great job, Adri Excited to read the next one

    24. Wordless by AdriAnne Strickland and Flux is a fantasy full of humor that fits the story perfectly The writing is so well done that I couldn t put the book down Strong characters and detailed world building make this a fantastic read

    25. The author had a good idea but the book started off too fast then became fairly boring and couldn t keep my interest It wasn t very well written at all.

    26. VERY intriguing The sudden twist at the end was exciting I recieved an early copy for review Full review should be on dark faerie tales within a couple of weeks

    27. I received this book as a giveaway a few years ago and it got lost on my bookshelf until this summer Boy, I should never have lost it A really good teen read, and adult read Gods made the Words into flesh A chosen few in lineage are the Words death, life, light, darkness, earth, wind, fire, and water They can control their element, or Godspeakers can read the Words off of them This generation is trying to change that I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of fantasy.

    28. Not the worst Not awesome Some of the story was interesting, but the romance was so bad maybe because I m not a teen Don t know , and the plot action seemed thrown at you rather than developing at the right pace There was just something off about the book, and I can t quite pinpoint what it was I would read the second one to find out what happens, though so there s that.

    29. LOVED this book Really cool idea I ve read many books about kids with magical powers but this was a completely different reason than anything I had ever read before which was cool Would recommend to any teenager who love dystopian or fantasy.
