I had such high hopes for this book, but sadly I was disappointed. It’s got great reviews, too, so looks like I was the black sheep yet again *shrugs* Mostly I was bored. The mystery of not knowing why people were dying kept me going, but I found the plot and the book overall to be very dull. The prose was choppy and awkward and I had trouble getting into it. We are given ZERO description whatsoever, so I had […]

The truth is that when you’re facing death, there’s no telling what you’ll do. WHY did I put this one off for so long?! Oh my lord!! I had seen it around back when it first came out, but they hype died down and I really never see it mentioned anywhere. I had a feeling I’d love it, but I put it off anyway. I didn’t really know what to expect going in, and I ended up being BLOWN AWAY! […]

Holy WOW, that was intense!!!! I have to admit that this one started out a bit rocky. When I first met Tuck, it seemed like his narrative was trying too hard to be a cocky teenage male. (Also, there was an unnecessary comparison of his shrunken balls to walnuts, like why??) But in the first few pages this book grabs you by the balls (see, now he’s got me talking about balls) and doesn’t let go! The monsters in this book – mourners, […]

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 […]

We’re weapons. They made us this way. And we’re coming for them. I daresay I enjoyed this one even more than the first! This is such a great sci-fi series. I loved the world of Magnia/Glacia with its two moons and the way the shift in moons dictated the name of the planet. So cool! The culture of the Imago and all of the creatures on the planet was awesome! The best part of this series is hands down the […]

Fall down seven times. Get up eight. Holy crap, this book was awesome!! To be honest I didn’t know what to expect going in – I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not, and after seeing it pitched as compared to the Darkest Minds, I was skeptical. Surprisingly, I was blown away!! I wasn’t too sure in the beginning, though – I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing for some reason that I couldn’t quite […]
