Review: Tempest by Julie Cross

Review: Tempest by Julie Cross

I wanted to love this book. I really did. But honestly, it just gave me a headache. The idea of time-traveling fascinates me. But, the subject is tricky because of the high possibility (or with this one, probability) of confusion. I had a hard time not comparing this to Hourglass, which I read only last month and loved. Unfortunately, Tempest was just a tiny shadow in the blazing glory of Hourglass. (Yes I know, comparing is bad. Sorry.) So many […]

Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

What a delicious sci-fi/fantasy with a dash of dystopian and a pinch of murder mystery!! I loved this one from start to finish. The intro was heart-wrenching for me, because I can’t imagine ever having to leave my parents. Or having to watch them go through with the horrible experience of the freezing. Or waking up without them. I really felt for Amy on that part. The world inside the Godspeed was so real and convincing, I was totally captivated. […]

Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Wow. This book was incredible! I love the mind-bending concept of time traveling and I’d never read a book about it before. It’s just so cool, even though if I think too much into the details it’s a bit hard to wrap my head around – like what traveling to the past and making any changes would do to the future. And paradoxes. Whaa – it’s like the dream within a dream within a dream stuff from Inception. Makes my […]

Review: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Review: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Rossi did not disappoint in her debut novel. Under the Never Sky was a beautiful, enthralling, and unique story and I ate it up! Although, I must say I started out extremely confused. You’re pretty much dumped into this advanced future world with hardly any explanation and terms are thrown at you – pod, Reverie, Bliss, Scire, Aether, Smarteye – it was a little overwhelming at first. But as the book went along, I picked up (slowly) on what it all […]

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Just so you know, I never really liked alien stories. I do now. Let me start by telling a story (it’s kind of long, I apologize in advance). I have wanted this book sooo incredibly bad since it came out. Aliens don’t really appeal to me, but I did like Smallville (I was an avid watcher for the first couple seasons) and even though I only saw episode 1 of Roswell, I liked it too. This book sounded a bit […]
