Wow, this book was so powerful! It takes a hard look at the relationships between women – at the empowerment of sisterhood, but also at the power that women have to tear each other down (and how patriarchy pits us against one another). That we are stronger together instead of against one another. It’s been a while since I read a dystopian I enjoyed this much! It had a very Lord of the Flies feel when we were seeing the […]

It’s not very often that I find a book that makes me literally laugh out loud, so I genuinely cherish Shelby as an author! The wit and humor that I loved so much from the first book was still present in this one, which makes me so happy! I do think that this suffered from a bit of Second Book Syndrome. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It felt like filler, to […]

I was born of this dust, and I am never going to escape it. This is the book I’ve been waiting for and didn’t even know it! In the sea of 3 star books I’ve read in the past few months, it was refreshing to read something that sucked me in, and I needed that. The cover and synopsis drew me in when I first heard about this one, but I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it because Bowman’s books […]

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. I have some pretty mixed feelings about this book, but overall I feel pretty meh about it. Which makes it hard to review. The concept was fairly awesome. And kinda scary, really: In the future, there are no physical books or written words (they’re not banned, but people get paid to turn in paper and there’s a tax for using it, so they’re super rare) – basically everything is […]

To be honest, I don’t remember much of this book. I put off reviewing this because after finishing I felt meh about the book and didn’t have much to say about it, so I just never wrote a review. And now I’ve already forgotten a lot of it, even though I just read it two months ago. It just wasn’t a memorable story. Actually, it was quite generic. Super bland, basic dystopian. It felt a lot like a Hunger Games […]

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

What I liked: The storytelling. It was absolutely brilliant! I love how things were unveiled and it kind of throws you for a loop. Secrets, lies, and betrayal! I love how each of the queens had something to hide, and their secrets slowly came to light. They were each breaking the queenly law in some way. The world. The concept of the world was really interesting, albeit a bit vague – four distinct quadrants of Quadara, four ruling queens. I’ll […]
