Are you a fan of space books? Are you also a fan of the movie Ghost Ship? LOOK NO FURTHER! This book is for you! And also, this book was 100% for me. I am a huge space horror fan, and it’s sooo hard to find them. Or good ones, at least. This was one of my most anticipated books of 2022, so I was super jazzed when I got it as an eARC in late 2020 from NetGalley. And […]

Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

Wow, this book was so powerful! It takes a hard look at the relationships between women – at the empowerment of sisterhood, but also at the power that women have to tear each other down (and how patriarchy pits us against one another). That we are stronger together instead of against one another. It’s been a while since I read a dystopian I enjoyed this much! It had a very Lord of the Flies feel when we were seeing the […]

It takes a monster to slay a monster. Holy. Freaking. CRAP. You guys, this book absolutely BLEW me away!! I mean just wow. I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a book this much from the opening sentence to the very last page that wasn’t written by Jay Kristoff. I wish I could bottle up the sheer fierce joy I felt while reading this delightful book! It reminded me a lot of watching Pacific Rim for the first time […]

This is a hard book to review, because I have pretty mixed feelings about it. In the beginning, it felt very much like a rip off of Zero Repeat Forever, which is one of my all time favorite books (read: those are some VERY big shoes to fill). The dynamic between M0rR1s (Morris to humans, audiobook narrator pronounced it “em-zero-one-is” in Ilori language) and Janelle is VERY similar to August and Raven. Their personalities are incredibly similar as well – Janelle […]

This one was okay, not great. I don’t remember much about it, to be honest, because I was severely bored throughout the entire story. However, narration by Jonathan Keeble was absolutely fantastic and kept me going. Spot on voices for each character and brought the story to life! I’ll probably seek out more works by this narrator. He saved the book for me, because I probably would have DNFed if I’d physically read it. The world was interesting but the […]
