Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Trust no one. Question everything. This book is very difficult for me to review because I kind of have a love/hate relationship with it. I was really excited for this book. In fact, it was in the top 10 on my most anticipated releases of 2016 list. I was so sure I was going to love it, because I loved the White Rabbit Chronicles and the Intertwined trilogy. Sadly, I was disappointed. In the beginning, I had no idea what was going […]

Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys Anthology

Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys Anthology

This was my first experience reading an anthology all the way through. I’ve only ever picked up one other anthology before, and I think I flipped through and read the one story I wanted to read, ha. But it was pretty good! There were a few stories I loved and a few stories I didn’t like at all, so it evened out. I had trouble connecting to most of the stories due to the short length of them. That’s really […]

Review: Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Review: Morning Star by Pierce Brown

We are the tide. And we are rising. While I still enjoyed this one – it’s hard not to, with the lovely prose and amazing world – I had the same problem with this one that I did with Golden Son: Yet more politics and war strategy dominating the majority of this book. There was a good chunk in the middle that was downright boring because of that. I think some of that could have been condensed and the story […]

Audiobook Review: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

Audiobook Review: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

This book is kind of an audio review, and kind of not. I started it via audio, and finished it by reading the rest. Confession: I started this book two years ago and never finished. Not because I didn’t like it, but because my Audible app screwed up and I lost my spot in the audiobook. I had NO idea where I was at, so I just…never picked it back up again. The sad part is, I was really enjoying […]

Review: This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

She pushes through the broken stars, which shatter and fall around her like curtains of rain. I didn’t really expect this to be a companion novel, to be honest. I guess I just saw it was the follow up to These Broken Stars and was all OH SEQUEL and didn’t really bother to read the synopsis. I loved These Broken Stars – I gave it 4.5/5. While I still enjoyed this one, it didn’t quite have the magic that the first […]

Review: Golden Son by Pierce Brown

Review: Golden Son by Pierce Brown

I am a child of hell, and I have spent too long in their heaven. My goodness. This book was SO slow. There was soooo much politics and war strategy throughout 75% of this book, and I was growing severely bored with it. The pace was extremely slow as compared to the first book. I was rather sad that it wasn’t as special as the first book was. Despite that, I was still intrigued by the premise. I love the hierarchy […]
