ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

It was so awesome to return to this imaginative virtual world! The world of the NeuroLink is my absolute favorite part of this series. It’s so cinematic! I also LOVE the setting because it’s in Japan! Honestly the whole concept of mind control through the form of a virtual reality is terrifying, because everything in this book seems viable. It feels realistic, like it could actually happen someday. I really liked the catharsis in this book. I can’t say much […]

Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

“Everything’s science fiction until someone makes it science fact.” For once, a book that lives up to its hype! I was on the fence about this one, because a) honestly the cover is awful (but it is growing on me), b) I tend to be the black sheep on super hyped books, and c) Marie Lu’s books are hit or miss for me (Legend was great but the finale fell short, Young Elites was amazing but I didn’t like the second […]

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. […]
