Review: Cold Falling White by G.S. Prendergast

Review: Cold Falling White by G.S. Prendergast

CAUTION: SPOILERS FOR ZERO REPEAT FOREVER Oh my gosh, why did I put off reading this book for so long?! To be honest I was kind of worried that it would have Second Book Syndrome and would disappoint me after I loved Zero Repeat Forever so freaking much. I needn’t have worried, because it was pretty much just as amazing as the first book! The first book starts off kind of slow in the beginning. This book is almost non-stop […]

Review: Dark Age by Pierce Brown

Review: Dark Age by Pierce Brown

If we cannot engineer salvation for our men, then vengeance will suffice. Holy….. FUCK. You. Guys. Like, wow. This book was SO incredibly brutal, it slew me! I knew it was going to be bad, but I never expected how bad. You think things can’t get any worse, and then…they do. PREPARE FOR TEARS, GUYS. It starts off a little slow, but I wasn’t bored with this one like I was with Iron Gold. It’s got a lot of politics […]

Review: Crown of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh

Review: Crown of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh

To be honest, I don’t remember much of this book. I put off reviewing this because after finishing I felt meh about the book and didn’t have much to say about it, so I just never wrote a review. And now I’ve already forgotten a lot of it, even though I just read it two months ago. It just wasn’t a memorable story. Actually, it was quite generic. Super bland, basic dystopian. It felt a lot like a Hunger Games […]
