DNF Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

DNF Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

I may get flogged for this…but I couldn’t even bear to finish this one. There was so much hype and sooo many people marked this as 4 or 5 stars – which, frankly, I can’t see why – but it just was not for me. I knew going in that it was historical fiction, but decided to give it a try anyway (even though I hate anything historical), because it had such great reviews and ratings. But, after about 200 pages, […]

Review: Partials by Dan Wells

Review: Partials by Dan Wells

Partials blew my mismatched little socks right off. From the first sentence to the very last, I was riveted. Honestly, it had my attention even before I started the first chapter, with this: This book is dedicated to the rule breakers, the troublemakers, and the revolutionaries. Sometimes the hand that feeds you needs a good bite. What a brilliant open to a dystopian novel! Then it leads in with this: Newborn #485GA18M died on June 30, 2076, at 6:07 in […]

Review: Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs

Review: Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs

I had a lot of mixed feelings about this book. It got off to a great start with the letter from mother to daughter telling Tempest that she would have a life-altering decision to make: stay human or become a mermaid. The letter captured my attention immediately and piqued my interest. I was thinking, What will she do? How will she choose?? But, I’m afraid to say that after that it was a downward spiral for me. I didn’t like […]
