Review: Containment by Caryn Lix

Review: Containment by Caryn Lix

In case you missed my review for Sanctuary, I absolutely loved the first book! It was gripping, the aliens were chilling, and I loved the dark Alien-esque feel it had going for it. It was a space horror through and through and kept you on the edge of your seat. This book? Not so much. There was some major Second Book Syndrome going on here. The parts that I loved so much about the first book – namely, the scary aliens […]

Mini Reviews: Books I Never Got Around to Reviewing

Mini Reviews: Books I Never Got Around to Reviewing

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 […]

ARC Review: DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff

ARC Review: DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff

CAUTION: MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR LIFEL1K3 So, with the way the first book left off, I was wondering hardcore where that would leave us and what would happen next. The character turnarounds in this one were astounding! I’m sad that Eve is basically a villain now, but it makes for a really interesting story! I’m hoping there’s still some redemption for her in the future. It’s kind of scary how far off the deep end she went after the revelations in […]

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic. SQUAD GOALS!! I loved this band of misfits so much! I adored every single one of the characters, and they each had their own distinct personalities. Switching POVs doesn’t usually work for me, but it did in this book! You get to see seven different points of view, which sounds intimidating but it really works here. It gives you a feel for each of the […]

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: The Pioneer by Bridget Tyler

Review: The Pioneer by Bridget Tyler

This was such a great debut sci-fi! It was definitely right up my alley. I went in not really knowing much and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it! The beginning started out with a bang – I actually read this in the middle of a reading slump so I needed something to grab me right away and this one definitely did. I absolutely love books about finding and colonizing new planets. I love seeing what authors imagine the […]
