Bogus to Bubbly: An Insider's Guide to the World of Uglies

Bogus to Bubbly
written by Scott Westerfeld

I've had this book on my wishlist since before it came out, and I'm glad I finally got the chance to read it.  There's not much to review in terms of plot and story, as this is more of a reference guide to the elaborate Uglies universe constructed by Scott Westerfeld.  I honestly do wish more books came with reference guides, bonus extras from the authors to fully immerse their readers in the characters and their worlds.  Obviously this wouldn't work with all books (standalones, etc.), but with books set in extensive worlds, it would be such a great addition.  Westerfeld really seems connected to his readers and what they want to know.  There's a good mix of general review information that was found in the books, as well as enhancing new material.  Loved it.

Rating: 5/5
