Review: Ruins by Dan Wells

Review: Ruins by Dan Wells

“Waging war is the easy part – making peace will be the hardest thing we’ve ever done.” Dan Wells is a pro at storytelling. He brings the world to life! It’s always so easy to imagine the story as real because everything is so convincing. The world & setting is by far my favorite part of this entire series – the world building is cinematic! “You weren’t ‘designed’ to cure RM, but you did it anyway. You weren’t designed to […]

ARC Review + Giveaway: Avalon by Mindee Arnett

ARC Review + Giveaway: Avalon by Mindee Arnett

The fact that this novel takes place in space was enough to make me like it. Space stories are so few and far between! There’s a certain magic to the idea of being in space (Treasure Planet!) and this one really captured that magic. The first line was ‘Stealing a spaceship shouldn’t be this easy.’ Talk about getting your attention! It was also very unique. The idea of metatech and metaspace was very intriguing, as were the Pyreans and Empyria! […]

Mini Review: Undone by Elizabeth Norris

Mini Review: Undone by Elizabeth Norris

It was very interesting to see things from Ben’s POV! I loved him already, but being in his head made me love him even more. At just about every significant moment in my life, she was there. Whether she knew it or not. The way Ben sees Janelle was incredible. He’s actually quite obsessed with her, but for some reason it was endearing rather than creepy. He changes his schedule so he can be in class with her, stands up […]

Review: 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil

Big thanks to HarperTeen for providing a review copy! I had the same problem with this one that I had with Ten: TOO MUCH DRAMA. I mean, I understand that they’re in high school, but jeez! High school is NOT like reality TV. Either that or I just had a ridiculously tame high school. To be honest, this could have been a 4 star book for me if it hadn’t been for the characters. The originality was outstanding, and I […]

Review: Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Review: Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Make no mistake, I was Team Jack 100% in Everneath. No, I didn’t read Neverfall, and I didn’t care to. I really don’t think it could have made me like Cole because I seriously couldn’t stand him in the first book. Everbound is very full of Cole. I can’t say he’s the main focus, because everything that Nikki does, she does for Jack. But still. There was far too much of him for my tastes, and I certainly didn’t want to find any reason […]

Review: Deception by C.J. Redwine

Review: Deception by C.J. Redwine

This review contains spoilers for Defiance if you haven’t read it. Big thanks to HarperTeen for providing a copy for review!  WOW. If I had one word to describe this thrilling sequel to Defiance, it would be INTENSE. Goodness, where do I start? This book picked up right where the first left off, with Baalboden destroyed and the Commander escaped. It jumped right into the action with the survivors setting out into the Wasteland. And from there on, the story […]
