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

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 […]

5 Standalones That Deserve a Sequel

5 Standalones That Deserve a Sequel

Last week I talked about sequels that didn’t live up to the first book. This week, I want to highlight a few amazing standalones that I desperately wished DID have a sequel! (Is there no middle ground?!)   Stain – This book sent me into such a slump, it’s one of my favorites! Definitely my favorite standalone. I desperately need more of the characters and world! Words cannot describe how incredible the world is! Sorcery of Thorns – Another one that […]
