Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce Vlog Review

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 352 pages
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; Reprint edition (April 5, 2011)

Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris--the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.

Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls' bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett's only friend--but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they've worked for?

Amy and I both read Sisters Red and decided to do a Vlog about it!  We just couldn't stop talking!  SO, we've made a super long video where we talk about it and all the things we liked and didn't like and what-not, then I made a shorter cropped version for those who don't want to watch us for 10 min.  :)  (Hint:  If you want to watch the long one, don't watch the short one, because it's the same stuff just less of it!) 

Wow! Look at that cover!  In a sea of black-covered YA books, Sisters Read certainly stands out!

  1. Aphrodite from House of night! I think she rocks and doesn't need any guy to save her! shaushaushausha And I love her :)

    Name: Mandy Porto

  2. This is really cool.

    I actually have several- i actually try really hard to find books with strong female characters who make things happen for themselves :)

    There is a self published author nambed Danae Ayusso and her books are truly amazing- all of her main characters so far are female and ALL of them are really stong and indepndent. :)

    If i had to pick a favorite female character it would be one of hers. Probably be Kennedi from her Kennedi and Konstantin books. As a teenager i feel really stronly that young females need more role models, female main characters in books that have a back-bone :)

    ok i'm shutting up now :)
    This was a cool blog post :)

  3. I loved Mary in The Forest of Hands and Teeth!

    Name: Jeremy West

  5. Rose from VA, love a strong female leading role :)


  6. Hi! Just dropping in from the Friday Follow.

  7. Strong, eh? Well. The first name - and right now, the only, apparently - that comes to mind is Kate Daniels (Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews). She's majorly tough, and definitely has the wit to match! :)


  8. I've heard only good things about this book!

    About the girls...Ummm.....I have to think about it.

    Mary - The Forest of Hands and Teeth...she doesn't seem to need a man ;)

    Rayne - Possessed....she was very brave!

    How about Polly O'Keefe of An Acceptable Time by Madeleine L'Engle? =) It's an old SF/F YA novel, but she remains a strong character after all these years!

  12. Hi, Thanks for stopping by my blog and following! I love your blog, so I feel honored that you'd follow mine!

  13. Haaaahhh :D! I enjoy your vlogs too much x)! I think you should do vlogs more often... ^-^! Awesome review! I can't wait to read it :)!

  14. Rose from Va and Susanna from The mediator series. Both of them are brave and cool!!

  15. I should tell you that Hermione Granger is kick a** chick.She's not really that hot and doesn't has martial art self defense what so ever but she has brain and magic spells became handy when she save their lives quite a lot most of the time. In fact, she's articulate, bold and high in self confidence, and also being a center of two important guys. Also,I think her love life is sweet when she loves Ron dearly even he's quite clumsy and funny, and she proves that not every hot guys worth to chase. And with that, Hermione is best! ;p

  16. I wanted to mention Katniss from The Hunger Games, but she already said it. So I'll go with Maliha Crayne from The Mortal Path Series by Dakota Banks.

  17. The first person that comes to mind is Kate Blessing in Todd Strasser's Mob Princess Triology. Kate was able to take charge of her father's business and her family, when her mom leaves her father. She has a strong attitude and goes through many obsticles that she proves she can handle.
