Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic. SQUAD GOALS!! I loved this band of misfits so much! I adored every single one of the characters, and they each had their own distinct personalities. Switching POVs doesn’t usually work for me, but it did in this book! You get to see seven different points of view, which sounds intimidating but it really works here. It gives you a feel for each of the […]

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

The die is cast. But today we will shake the table upon which it lands. Okay, I have been putting off this review for far too long… *hides face* To be completely honest, in comparison to the other two books, I was underwhelmed. IT KILLS ME TO ADMIT THAT. I mean, don’t get me wrong – I still loved it!! Of course I still loved it. But the first half was slooow in a way that the first two never […]

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Patience and Silence had one beautiful daughter. And her name was Vengeance. Oh my god, where do I even start?! I honestly don’t think anything I could say about this book could ever actually do it justice. Illuminae was absolutely epic. I daresay that Gemina was even better! (HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!) Like I said in my review of Illuminae, I’ve never read anything like this series. If you didn’t already know, it’s told in a series of hacked documents – […]

WOW. Just wow. This book was my #1 MOST anticipated book of 2015, and let me just say that it did not disappoint! I was absolutely blown away! I don’t know how my review can ever do this book justice. Seriously. This is the kind of book that is the first of its kind. Every other sci-fi is going to wish it were this book. I know many other writers are going to try to re-create the style of this […]

Review: 5 to 1 by Holly Bodger

Review: 5 to 1 by Holly Bodger

I certainly wasn’t expecting verse! It was a bit distracting, though, which is why I don’t usually read verse. I get so focused on the lyrical quality that I don’t pay attention to what’s happening. Holly Bodger’s prose was beautiful, though! I liked that Sudasa’s POV was written in verse and 5’s was written in regular prose. It made a clear distinction between their voices. I’m afraid I didn’t connect to the story quite like I’d hoped. While the idea was […]
