Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
First there was that perfect writing, which I enjoyed so much. And then there was the characters. Oh, how I loved them. This book is told from the point of view of Amelia aka Mia and Julian. One chapter each. Which I enjoyed a lot, because reading from both of them was so interesting and amazing. Loved them both.
This book begins so well. It starts with action right away, and I liked that very much. And it begins with both characters already on this new world that they have sneaked off to to explore for something. Which I must say that I loved so much, because it left out all the boring stuff before they left for this new world, lol. And what a beginning. Mia is almost taken captive by raiders. Jules show up, thinking they are his team. Which they weren't. And ah, this was such an awesome first meeting between these two characters. They defeat the two bad people, and run away. Then they get to know each other better. Jules came to this planet to study it, to help his father. Mia came to it to steal from it. Which makes them enemies. And oh, it was so much fun.
The plot in this stunning novel was all kinds of exciting. It takes place on a different planet, a planet with two suns and no life. Earth isn't all normal either, things have been bad for a long time. Jules came to this new planet to search for a hidden danger. Then he meets Mia, and they end up searching together. And oh, the temple they arrive at was all kinds of creepy. This is a book full of puzzles and surprises. And full of dangers. I couldn't help but love every moment of it. So much happens all the time. It was awesome.
There is so much I wish to share about this book. But I can't share too much about it. Some things should be a surprise. But gosh, I don't even know where to begin with what I will share. This book was so good. And I loved every moment of it. Okay, fine, there was one part that broke my heart a bit too much, and I didn't enjoy that all that much. Hmm. It's when Mia is lying to keep Jules and her safe, but he does not know that, and oh, it broke my heart way too much. But I'm healing from it. It was so well written, though.
I adored these two characters beyond words. Mia was so much fun to read about. I loved her thoughts and I loved how she was fierce and brave and just awesome. And reading about her forbidden sister was pretty sad. Loved their relationship. Mia and Jules came from two different worlds, almost. Mia has grown up in a bad place, and she's pretty poor. While Jules grew up almost rich, with everything he could want. But even though they are so different, they get to know each other and start to care for each other. Eee.
And oh, how I adored Jules. He was such an amazing character as well. And reading about him and getting to know him was the very best. And reading about Jules and Mia together was simply incredible. They argue and they are so fun to read about. They disagree about things, but they begin care too. And the slowly beginning of a romance between them was the very best. I ship them so much. Yesss. I am unable to fully describe how much I adored them. There are just no words for how awesome they were.
I'm not going to say much about everything that happens in this book. As I have already written a bunch about how I felt about this book. But yeah, I just loved it so much. It was such a thrilling story to read. So much happened. A bunch of bad people too. Mostly this is the story of Jules and Mia, and I loved that so much. I loved reading about them exploring and finding hints and almost dying all the time. Was so much fun. This whole book was awesome. And very beautiful too. Enjoyed reading about all the different traps.
This book has one of the rudest endings. I'm not sure what will happen next. But I know that I am dying to read it. And I am so, so curious. That ending was evil. Total cliffhanger. Yet not with the main characters, so yesss. I'm thrilled about that. But that ending was still rude. But so good and surprising and exciting. I loved it. Another part of this book that I loved was that there was no love triangle at all. Not even a hint of one. And I'm very sure that one will not show up either, so I'm very happy. The romance was so so good.
Unearthed was everything I wanted it to be and so much more. Such a thrilling science fiction and space adventure. This new world it took place on was so interesting and different. I loved reading about it. The characters were all fantastic, and I loved the beginning of the romance so much. This book was also a bit heartbreaking, which I couldn't help but love. Some parts were a bit too hurtful, though. Ack. But still so good. I am so thrilled that I ended up loving this book so much. I'm now dying for book two. Need it now.
Huge thank you to Cassie at Disney Hyperion for letting me reading this book early via NetGalley. Means the most to me. Eee. So glad that I got to read this precious. I cannot wait to own all the finished copies when it comes out in January. Will also be hunting for that special looking ARC version of this as well. I need it badly. If you are unsure about this book, don't be. Because it was beyond amazing. And you are all going to love it. So go order it. Right now. And if you already have it, read it. Don't wait. It's so good.

For What It's Worth
I'm just peeking at your review because I have this one and want to start fresh! It's such a hyped title so it's hard to do that, but that's exciting in its own right. I'm so glad to see that there is action from the start. Jules sounds like a sweetie and I'm glad there is romance. I am so glad this book did not disappoint! I'll be mentally prepared for whatever cliffhanger awaits me. :OReplyDelete
Have a wonderful day, Carina. =)
