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 […]

I had heard many people saying that this had nothing to do with Hex Hall whatsoever, even though it was a spin-off, so I knew going in that there would be none of the characters I loved so much from Rachel’s first trilogy. And they were right – Sophie was only mentioned twice in passing – but that’s okay. I still enjoyed the world! And while it didn’t quite hold the magic that Hex Hall did, it was still a […]

I had been reeeaaally looking forward to this one. In fact, it was one of my most anticipated spring releases. And after seeing many gushing reviews from friends and blogs I follow, I was sure I’d love it. I’m sad to say that I was highly disappointed. It probably also didn’t help that I had just read it after an amazing book (Eternity Cure). Either way, my expectations were just set far too high. My first issue: The prose. It was […]

Big thanks to my loverly Nator twin for sending me a copy! <3  I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. But I was pleasantly surprised! I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. First of all, it wasn’t as much about alien experimentation as much as it was a vengeance campaign against the high school mean girl. That’s what about 70% of this book consisted of. Not that […]

**CAUTION: Possible spoilers for Hex Hall if you have not read it!!** Holy hell weasel, this book was just as good (if not better) than Hex Hall!! Hawkins really brings it in the second installment with even more twists, danger, and betrayal. There were so many things I never saw coming! Demonglass was riveting, particularly in the last quarter – and okay, I admit it, I got a little misty in certain parts. But it also made me giggle a […]
