I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

Mothership - Martin Leicht, Isla Neal I was looking for something light-hearted and amusing when I decided to read this book. I’d just finished reading an intense dystopian and needed something to lighten my mood. I was a bit leery at first since “Mothership” is about a group of pregnant teenagers sent to live in a decommissioned space cruiser that’s been turned into a high school for expectant mothers. Despite my initial reservations, I decided to hold back all judgements until I actually read the book.

Well, I’m glad to announce “Mothership” certainly manages to lighten the mood ;p. Parts of the book were definitely cheesy, but I really enjoyed Elvie’s sarcasm. There were some great action-packed scenes, which was awesome. I thought the flashbacks were a bit tedious, but I suppose they were a necessary evil. As of right now though, I don’t intend on reading the rest of the series.
