Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I’ll do it or I’ll destroy this empire trying. HOLY. WOW. YOU GUYS. I was totally blown away by this book! This is one of the most unique concepts I’ve read in a very long time! The Diabolic has a very vivid setting with thought out, complex world building. It felt very real and I was super impressed! (A map would have been nice though. Hopefully in the finished copy!) This book felt much like a mixture of Red Rising & Hunger Games. Everything […]

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Just like with the first book, I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. As I stated in my review of Walk on Earth a Stranger, I went into the series expecting a historical fantasy. This book is NOT fantasy. The only thing fantasy about this series is Leah’s ability to witch gold. This series is hardcore Historical Fiction, set during the gold rush. I think it’s the latter part that makes it interesting to me. It’s no secret […]

Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

I am vengeance. I loved Not a Drop to Drink, so I was expecting to like this book even though it’s outside of my genre comfort zone. But I wasn’t expecting for it to blow me away! This book is so raw and realistic. There’s something about Mindy’s writing that perfectly captures the characters and coveys the story. But more than that, this book is pretty heavy. It’s very honest about what it’s like to be a teenager in a way that most […]

Review: Disruption by Jessica Shirvington

Review: Disruption by Jessica Shirvington

Wow! I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I loooved all the cool science-y tech involved! The concept of the pheromone technology was super awesome! Kinda scary, actually, seeing as how it’s not all that far-fetched. Everyone became so dependent on the Phera-tech that they no longer followed their hearts. I can’t imagine how horrible it would be to pair yourself with someone based solely on what a piece of machinery tells you, and not because you […]

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Victoria Schwab is such a pro at writing interesting and unique stories! This one was brilliant, and unlike anything I’ve ever read before. I loved the concept so much! In North City, Harker and his monsters. In South City, Flynn and his humans. I had a little trouble grasping the sides of the city at first. I was confused because our main character, August, as well as his brother and sister (who were monsters too), was on Flynn’s side and […]

Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Good freaking lord, am I the ONLY person who didn’t like this book? I don’t understand the hype this book has. It was like Red Queen and Snow Like Ashes all over again. This book was SO generic. It was not memorable at all and doesn’t stand out in the sea of other High Fantasy books.  Actually, as far as HF goes, this one was a terrible one. There’s so many other, better HFs out there! There was NO world building in this […]
