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 […]

Review: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

These Broken Stars is kinda like Shades of Earth meets Titanic, and it’s unlike anything else I’ve read. The world building was by far my favorite part of this book! I loved the feel of the story, and the planet’s energy-based life forms. Their abilities were fascinating!  This is a hell I’ve never imagined. And I think I’m going to die here. I didn’t care much for Lilac in the beginning. She’s a spoiled rich brat who’s lived a frilly life without […]

I was sure I was going to love this one. I mean, come on – time travel?! How can that not be amazing? I’ve always been fascinated by time travel stories. But sadly, this one fell a bit flat for me. I really struggled in the first half. If I had to rate this book by each half, it’d probably be 1-2 stars in the beginning and 4 stars at the end. I’m glad I stuck with it! The world […]
