Oh how I missed Cara’s snark and Aelyx’s banter! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this world. I really like the L’eihr and their culture! It was awesome to finally see the planet. I found it interesting that Cara and Aelyx were struggling with the same things, despite being on two totally different worlds. Fitting in, being homesick, missing each other. It kinda showed that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I totally loved Aelyx’s cat (cat […]

What a fabulous concept! I think that was the driving point of this novel for me. I highly enjoyed the world and all of the monsters. I also loved the Hunters and the fact that they had a celebrity status – all of the costumes and colors reminded me a bit of the way the Jaeger pilots were portrayed in the beginning of Pacific Rim! This book was certainly cinematic – it would be awesome as a movie! There was […]

A special thank you to Hyperion for providing a copy for review! While I still didn’t enjoy this one as much as the first book, it was better than the 2nd! It was a good ending to a very interesting trilogy. I figured Zane was going to end up like Ariane in this book! It still kinda sucked though, that St. John used him as a weapon. I can imagine what it was like for Ariane when he walked into […]

I’ve had this book on my list forever, and last year I was able to meet Melissa and get a copy signed. It’s been sitting on my shelf for months, and I’ve been eyeballing it – because that cover! – but honestly I’ve been putting it off. I wasn’t sure it would be a “me” book, so I was hesitant. Turns out I had nothing to worry about! I can’t believe I waited so long to read this! I was […]

In the Afterlight was a heartbreaking, heart-pounding, heart-stopping end to a fantastic series! I am so in love with the Darkest Minds series and I’m super sad to let it go! Let me just say, I have never cried after a book ended just for the simple reason that it was over. Never. But when I finished this book, I was crying. I can’t believe that I will never see my favorite characters again – honestly, it’s kind of like losing a little […]

Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward. Broken. My heart is broken. After the last novella ended, I should have braced myself. Alexandra bracken doesn’t know the meaning of rainbows and sunshine. No Happy Ever Afters. (I’m terrified to read In the Afterlight!) I never cared much for Sam in The Darkest Minds, only because she didn’t have much of a role. Ruby’s feelings of guilt over what happened between them overshadowed anything else. I was actually […]
