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 […]

Caution: Possible spoilers for The Darkest Minds Wow, you guys, just wow! Sometimes middle books have this thing called Second Book Syndrome – yeah, you know what I’m talking about – and you end up being totally disappointed. Such was NOT the case with this one! It was just as good as the first book. It blew me away! As I mentioned in my review of the In Time novella, Alexandra’s prose is very engaging. She has a way with […]

At first, I didn’t really care about the story. I tend to see novellas as a waste of time, nothing but filler. But as soon as Zu made an appearance, I was interested. And I found myself becoming more and more invested in the story. And to tell you the truth, this story actually isn’t just filler like most novellas! I didn’t care for Gabe at first, but I think that’s kind of the point. He’s kind of a jerk […]

The darkest minds tend to hide behind the most unlikely faces. Why oh why did I wait so long to read this book?! I was afraid to pick it up because of the hype surrounding it. (I’m sure you all know by now that I tend to be the black sheep with those kind of books!) But I was pleasantly surprised! The beginning was EPIC. The scene where the orange kid whispers in the PSF’s ear and the PSF lifts […]

I loved The Rules. LOVED it (I rated it 5 heartbeats!). Sadly, though, the sequel lacked the magic of the first book. I still enjoyed it for the most part, but it didn’t wow me like the first book did. I felt like little to nothing actually happened in the first 3/4 of this book, and the pacing dragged in the middle. It was mostly Zane and Ariane bickering and disagreeing and keeping things from each other. I understand that conflict […]
