Review: Crown of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh

Review: Crown of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh

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

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 […]

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

After reading Skyward, I immediately started seeking out other Sanderson books. This was one I had tried to read forever ago, couldn’t get into (probably a total mood thing, I’m such a mood reader), and have been meaning to try again forever! I’m glad I finally picked it up! I loved the concept of this one! The Epics and their powers were awesome, and I loved that the power basically corrupted them. There were no superheroes, only super-villains. I thought it […]

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: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

Review: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

“We’ve inherited the darkest legacy, but they don’t know that we’ve learned how to thrive in shadows and create our own light.” The Darkest Minds trilogy is one of my all time favorite series, so I was thrilled to see Alexandra bringing some of my all time fave characters back for another round! I was excited to read through Zu’s perspective, I loved her in the originals. And it was positively wonderful to step back into the thrilling and cinematic world […]
