Welp, first DNF of the year! This book actually started off pretty strong. In the beginning I was into it, and excited about the space aspect. I love space books! Sadly, while the concept was awesome, the delivery was pretty awful. When I saw how bad the reviews were, I was worried; but I was still hopeful, because almost all of the negative ones were audio (which apparently is very robotic, yikes) and I tend to be the black sheep […]

One raindrop is just a raindrop, but together? They become a storm. Ok wow, this one totally took me by surprise! I didn’t even know what to expect going in. I knew basically nothing about the story (I do read the synopsis when I add books to my TBR, but I never remember them lol), and let’s be honest…this cover practically screams High Fantasy. I was pleasantly surprised when this ended up being a sci-fi! (To be fair, it does have the […]

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 […]

Okay, so I let this review go WAY too long! I don’t know why, I loved this book just like I love all of Jay’s other stuff. But for some reason, it didn’t stick with me like the first two books did. I even listened to it via audio as a re-read and STILL barely remember anything *hides* Not to say I didn’t enjoy the shit out of it – I definitely did! As always, Jay grabs you by the […]

I was leery about picking this one up because it was Historical, but my girl Kayla (@rheya_reads on Insta) picked it for me last year for the 12 recs challenge (12 friends pick 12 books for you to read). I’m so sorry Kayla, I let you down!! I was really hoping to enjoy it, because it was a witchy novel, but sadly I just didn’t. The concept and the way the story was told were both really cool, though! I […]

This book was SO. TEDIOUS. The narrator was okay – not bad, but not great either. And the book took FOREVER! And I feel like nothing really happened. I just listened to the audiobook a month or two ago and I remember almost nothing. The characters were hard to keep straight, too. There were several sets of names that sounded almost identical (it’s fantasy so probably spelled differently) and I kept mixing them up. And I just didn’t care about […]
