I was sure going into this one that I was going to enjoy it. EVERYONE loved it (seemed like it, anyway). Sadly, I was wrong. Again. *sigh* It seems like I’m always the black sheep when it comes to books with a lot of hype. Don’t get me wrong, this book wasn’t terrible. I gave it 2.5 – which for me is somewhere in between ‘it was ok’ and ‘I liked it.’ Because although I mostly just felt ‘meh’ about […]

**WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD** I usually hate to include spoilers in any review, but the reason I put this down is based off of a spoiler, so that’s most of what this review will entail. I think my hopes for this one were much too high before I picked it up. The story was decent. The originality was great. The characters…eh. I love the premise, really I do. A flower that can make people immortal and a perfect being with impenetrable […]

I’m lost. I’m going to die. On this godforsaken mountain, I’m going to die. Well, isn’t that what I wanted? There’s no easy answer on my lips or in my mind. Is it what I wanted? Is it? This book was good, not great, but was a quick and easy read. There wasn’t a lot of depth to it, though, despite the tough issues involved. The fact that it was so short kept things flowing at a decent pace, so […]

A millions suns stretch out beyond me, their light piercing the darkness. I feel so insignificant, a tiny speck surrounded by a million stars. A million suns. This book was so intense!! Everything starts falling apart, people are dying, and the ship is one step short of a full out mutiny. Just when you think nothing else could go wrong, something does, again and again. I loved the clues that Amy had to follow! It made me eager to try and […]

What a delicious sci-fi/fantasy with a dash of dystopian and a pinch of murder mystery!! I loved this one from start to finish. The intro was heart-wrenching for me, because I can’t imagine ever having to leave my parents. Or having to watch them go through with the horrible experience of the freezing. Or waking up without them. I really felt for Amy on that part. The world inside the Godspeed was so real and convincing, I was totally captivated. […]

I have to admit, I didn’t read the synopsis before I started this. So, when the very first chapter was about pirates, I was a bit confused (albeit intrigued). My thought was, What does this have to do with a group of teenagers? But soon I found out – when Tory discovers the legend of Anne Bonny. From there on this book was a riveting mixture of adventure, danger, and excitement. I loved it!   The Virals bite off more than […]
