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: The Rose Society by Marie Lu

Review: The Rose Society by Marie Lu

Wow. What the hell happened? I am vastly disappointed by how underwhelmed I was with this book. Actually, I struggled to maintain interest through most of it. I found myself bored and disinterested to the point that I contemplating DNFing. Again, I ask – what the hell?! I absolutely LOVED The Young Elites. I gave it 4.5 stars. Somewhere along the way, the magic was lost for me. Does this book just have Second Book Syndrome? Or is it me? […]

Review: The Young Elites by Marie Lu

Review: The Young Elites by Marie Lu

The gods gave us powers because we were born to rule. I was DYING to read this book ever since I heard about it, because I love Marie’s world building and the idea sounded awesome. Then, some not-so-great reviews started trickling in. I lowered my expectations. But, I still had hope, because I can’t imagine it being bad if it was written by Marie Lu. The result? I was blown away! The first thing you need to know is that […]

Review: Champion by Marie Lu

Review: Champion by Marie Lu

Champion was a fast paced thrill ride and was the perfect ending to a stunning series! There was plenty of action, and the war aspect was well portrayed. It was very dark and gritty at times (the perfect picture of war). So many heart pounding scenes, especially with Jameson! June and Day’s relationship was heartbreaking! It was sad that they had been separated for so long, and I hated that they had drifted so far apart and become so distant. […]

Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

Marie Lu’s world building skills never cease to amaze me. She’s so talented at creating a convincing and detailed world! First off, there’s a map. YES. I love when dystopian and high fantasy novels have a freaking map. I’m a very visual person, I need to see the world! Also, there would be parts where she’d get all technical with military things, and it was so realistic! For example: REPUBLIC SHIP DYNASTY | DEPARTURE: 0851 OCEANSTANDARD TIME, 01.13 FROM PHARAOH DOCK,LAS VEGAS, […]

Audiobook Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Audiobook Review: Legend by Marie Lu

As far as dystopians go, Legend rates among the top of all the ones I’ve read. There was plenty of action; not once did I get bored, because there was little to no lull in the plot. Something exciting was always happening! Danger and suspense abound; secrets, lies and government corruption! Oh my! It was everything I love in a dystopian novel (and why it’s one of my favorite genres). In my mind, I make a silent promise to my brother’s killer: […]
