Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Before I picked this book up, I was in a massive reading slump. (No seriously, I’d picked up like 5 different books in succession with no luck, I didn’t finish any of them.) Perhaps all I needed was to step outside of my genre comfort zone! I love Paula’s writing, and this one was no different. And such a cool concept, too! I loved the idea of ViSE – Vicarious Sensory Experience – basically, you can live vicariously through someone else’s […]

Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

Review: We’ll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

Wow, this book is really hard to talk about without giving anything away! I mostly liked it while I was reading, but it didn’t wow me. I did like how twisted it was, though – that was the saving grace for this book. My main issue with this book is that it was horrendously predictable. There were also inconsistencies with the plot. The authority figures were portrayed as rather dumb and useless. Chase and Alice are constantly running around the […]

Review: Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

Review: Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

Despite the fact that parts of this felt like they were ripped off of Inception, I rather enjoyed this story! I love how twisted and dark the dream world was. That was by far my favorite part. There wasn’t much happening in Dea’s ordinary waking life, but somehow I never lost interest. The little snippets of the dream world were enough to keep me going! It was so twisted, and I love that. I found the world of dreams to […]

Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

I mentioned in my review of The Art of Lainey that I was really impressed by  how much Paula’s storytelling had improved since Venom. I was even more impressed with it in this one! The mystery aspect of this book was awesome! I really liked the secrets and lies – I love stories where the bad guy could be anyone, so you start to mistrust every single person in the story. This one was like that! At every turn I was wondering […]

Review: (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn

Review: (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn

Wow, this story was delightfully twisted! I noticed going in that this book had some pretty low ratings on Goodreads, which had me worried. In the beginning I wasn’t sure I even wanted to read it, because it’s pretty freaking weird and confusing and I had no idea what the hell was going on. But, as the story went on, I started to get a feel for the creepy isolated town and what was happening there. And I loved it! This book […]

Review: Remember Me by Romily Bernard

Review: Remember Me by Romily Bernard

I have to say that this book is one of the few sequels I’ve read this year that was just as good as the first book! The mystery aspect of this book rocked! It made for very fast pacing, keeping you flipping pages as fast as you can to find out what happens next. I do have to say that I found this one a tad predictable (whereas I didn’t figure out the first one!). But that didn’t make the journey […]
