I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Mila 2.0 Origins: The Fire by Debra Driza
Title: Mila 2.0 Origins: The Fire
Series: Mila 2.0 ebook prequel
Author: Debra Driza
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Author Website: www.debradriza.com
Rating: 3/5 stars
It's hard to really review/rate these little ebook teasers, as that's all they are, teasers. I guess, this one did its job, though, since I'm intrigued enough by the opening sequence and the first couple of chapters to want to check the rest of the book out.
The opening sequence deals with the burning of Mila's house, and the panic she feels as she tries to find her parents in the inferno to rescue them. Of course, we're not given much more than this, but I won't spoil the rest.
The several chapters from the beginning of Mila 2.0 leave me curious about the rest of the book, so I'm sure I'll be picking it up eventually.
Also, since this is such an incredibly short read (basically, just one chapter if you count just the prequel bit), I'm not counting against my reading goal of the year.
