Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

Kristen sure has a way with writing characters and building worlds! There wasn’t a huge amount of action in the first half because she spent a lot of time really building up those parts. And it made them feel so vivid and real! The pacing is a bit slow to start, but it gives you time to savor the world and understand it, and also savor the character development. Kristen also has a way of writing an empowering story of […]

Seeker by Veronica Rossi Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Seeker by Veronica Rossi Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

No second book syndrome here, folks! Wowza! Seeker was just as explosive as Riders was! “Real gold is the value of truth. It’s friends you respect who respect you back. It’s what we have – you and me. That’s real gold.” My favorite part about this book – besides the horses, of course – is the very strong sense of family that the group of Riders and Daryn have going for them. They literally risk their lives to look for […]

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

This was Metaltown. Things didn’t change in Metaltown. You changed, and if you didn’t you paid. Beautifully written as always, Kristen! This book was dark and gritty, and perfectly portrayed the struggles of the world. It was such a beautiful and (and heartbreaking) story! I love that it showed the power of rising up and letting your voice be heard. The unfairness of everything really struck me, I thought Kristen did a fabulous job driving that home! I really felt for the characters and […]

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Before I picked this book up, I was in a massive reading slump. (No seriously, I’d picked up like 5 different books in succession with no luck, I didn’t finish any of them.) Perhaps all I needed was to step outside of my genre comfort zone! I love Paula’s writing, and this one was no different. And such a cool concept, too! I loved the idea of ViSE – Vicarious Sensory Experience – basically, you can live vicariously through someone else’s […]

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I’m beyond disappointed in this book. It had SO many glowing reviews, and came highly recommended from several blogging friends. I thought for sure it was going to be amazing, yet I hated what I did read of it. (I even watched the movie and wasn’t impressed with that, either. The whole “children are the only ones who can save the world” is just too much for me I suppose…) I made it a little past 100 pages or so before […]

Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

I really enjoyed jumping back into this world! Victoria Schwab is very talented at creating unique and vivid stories, and this one is no exception. It didn’t quite have the magic that A Darker Shade of Magic held for me, but I still enjoyed it! What really dragged this one down was the pacing. The book is more than 500 pages long, and there’s a long span in the middle where almost nothing is happening. I found myself getting bored […]
