Yarn along- Brixton's hoodie and the problem with trilogies
I'm working on Brixton's hoodie, to go along with Unity's hoodie. The pattern is from the last issue of Taproot. It's coming along well, just like the first one.
I finished reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth, and I was disappointed. I felt like her books were similar to the Hunger Games in that they started with a strong premise and good world-building and then the second book was ok but not great and the third book was terrible. I don't know if it's the pressure and fame or just that it's hard to write trilogies, but I felt like Allegiant was flat, the action was confusing and inspiring and the end was just unrewarding. I wish there was less pressure in the book world to create these trilogy/movie tie-ins, because I think the authors get rushed and scattered and the work really suffers.
On to the next thing, I guess...
