I really enjoyed One of Us is Lying, but sadly this one didn’t quite have the same magic. I adored the characters in the first book (and the amazing narrators brought them to life and gave them unique and distinct personalities), but I struggled with the characters in the sequel. Honestly, for the first half of the book I kept getting Maeve and Phoebe mixed up. Their narrators sounded too similar, and I had trouble keeping them separate in my […]

Holy crap, this book was so addicting!! I’ve seen it compared to One of Us is Lying, which I enjoyed, but I think this one was even better! In the beginning, it starts off as a typical mystery – popular girl is murdered, her boyfriend is the supposed killer. Okay, I can see which direction this is going. But as Pippa started digging and uncovering secrets, shit got crazy! The list of suspects grew longer and just created more and […]

It’s been a while since I read a mystery/thriller because they’re not usually my jam (and ya’ll know I don’t usually do contemp at all), but I really enjoyed this one! I loved the mystery aspect and how we slowly got snippets of information that lead to clues about the murder. The mystery and all the secrets kept me going! Honestly, throughout most of this book I had no idea who did it. It was well done for sure! I can […]

Holy crap, no second book syndrome here! It’s very rare that I love a sequel almost as much as the first book, but this one really delivered. I highly suggest reading this book BEFORE reading my review – going in, you know basically nothing about the plot because the synopsis doesn’t give you much. It’s so hard to talk about this book without giving anything away! So if you want to go in blind and be surprised like I was […]

After reading Skyward, I immediately started seeking out other Sanderson books. This was one I had tried to read forever ago, couldn’t get into (probably a total mood thing, I’m such a mood reader), and have been meaning to try again forever! I’m glad I finally picked it up! I loved the concept of this one! The Epics and their powers were awesome, and I loved that the power basically corrupted them. There were no superheroes, only super-villains. I thought it […]

Claim the stars. I had been DYING for this book, but I tried to read Mistborn and couldn’t get into it, so I was worried I wouldn’t like this one. I needn’t have worried, because I loved it!! It was such a fun and engaging read, and honestly the perfect Jessi book because 1) it’s sci-fi, 2) it’s set in space, and 3) it has tons of awesome banter! Three things that are a huge win for me! The setting […]
