Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

A millions suns stretch out beyond me, their light piercing the darkness. I feel so insignificant, a tiny speck surrounded by a million stars. A million suns. This book was so intense!! Everything starts falling apart, people are dying, and the ship is one step short of a full out mutiny. Just when you think nothing else could go wrong, something does, again and again. I loved the clues that Amy had to follow! It made me eager to try and […]

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 […]

Early Review: Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Claire

Early Review: Don’t You Wish by Roxanne St. Claire

Oh my, where do I start? This book was so wonderful!! I’ve been stuck in this horrible rut of mediocre books with vomit-inducing romances for so long that I was beginning to think it was just me. But as it turns out, it isn’t! I loved this one from start to finish. It opens with Annie getting totally shot down by some buttface jock and I immediately saw her as a kindred spirit, because let’s face it – I was […]

Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum

Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum

I’m sorry to say that this is another one that I had to force myself to finish. Through some morbid compulsion, I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. I suppose I was hoping it would get better and have some redeeming qualities, perhaps an unexpected twist or two towards the end, but nope. This book was very predictable. I felt zero surprise, zero joy, and all in all zero emotion. I found myself procrastinating by doing something, anything to […]
