Today’s post is a little different from normal, but in a good, unique way. This post is a review of the book Meta by Tom Reynolds. Tom Reynolds is the co-host of The Complete Guide To Everything and Pop Everything. This is his first novel and I thought some corresponding nail art would make for a creative review.
To be honest, I’m not the best at reviewing books because I feel like regardless of how much I try, there will be a spoiler, so really, my suggestion is to just go read the book. However, with the title of this post having the word “review” in it, there is the mandatory obligation to write somewhat of a review.
The book centers around 16 year old Connor Connolly who somehow finds a pair of metabands around his wrists. He struggles to keep this a secret from his best friend and older brother who is obsessed with metas. He must figure out how to use and control his powers because it isn’t long before he finds himself an enemy with equivalent power.
It didn’t take me long to get into Meta because it actually had a plot unlike the previous book I read which was Karlology by Karl Pilkington (funny, but no storyline). I really enjoyed the story and found it quite entertaining. It kept me wanting to read more and more. It ends with space left for more stories to come. I’m eager to see how Connor’s life plays out in the next novel.
My nails represent Meta in a simple way. My index finger represents Connor’s suit when he powers on his metabands and becomes Omni. My middle finger is the author’s signature, my ringfinger is a simplified cover of the book, and my pinky and thumb nails represent the silver metabands.
Below is a picture of the metabands and signature so you can actually see what I was going for.
Speaking of signature, my bookplate was the poster child of the bookplates, so that’s pretty cool.
