Wow. I don’t really know what I expected going in. I saw Cait’s (@paperfury) review where she said “this book softly held my hand, lead me to the edge of a cliff, and then shoved me straight on off” and went and bought it instantly. I didn’t even really know what genre it was – the synopsis is very vague, so I thought it was a contemporary pushing thriller with maybe some possible paranormal elements. What I got was NOTHING […]

Being only 149 pages, this book was super quick and easy to read. Which I’m grateful for, because the beginning was a struggle for me. Despite the short length, it still took me nearly 80 pages to become invested, and even then there was one reason and one reason only I cared at all: Murderbot. So, I’m awkward with actual humans. It’s not paranoia about my hacked governor module, and it’s not them; it’s me. I know I’m a horrifying […]

THIS BOOK IS NOT YA. It is labeled as such, but contains sexual and mature content. Oh, boy. How to review this?! I don’t even know how I feel about it to be honest. I actually think that I fall into the black sheep category on this book, but for once in a good way. I think I actually liked it. (I say ‘think’ because I’m rather freaking confused and my feelings are muddled and I think that speaks volumes.) First […]

I absolutely LOVED this origin story of how the crazy yet endearing AIDAN that we know was born! It’s kinda creepy, because you can see where he’s coming from even as he makes horrific choices. He always has the best interest of the fleet in mind, but is murder justifiable for survival? It brings into question humanity, and the morality of weighing one life against many, or even one deemed more valuable. Chilling! Even though this was only 82 pages, […]

I never reviewed this way back when I read it, but I just discovered a half-assed review draft on the blog and thought I’d transfer it here. Cuz let’s face it, I’m never gonna actually write a real review *shrugs* I really enjoyed the movie, but when I saw it I was thinking to myself, “I read the book but I don’t remember ANY of this???” So I don’t know if they changed a lot or if my memory is […]
