Huge thanks to Spencer Hill for providing a review copy! I very nearly DNF’ed this book in the first 20-30 pages. I managed to stick through it somehow – my masochistic nature? or morbid curiosity? who knows – and honestly, I wouldn’t have been missing much. I was really looking forward to reading this because of the idea, but the delivery was so lackluster that it all just fell flat for me. My first problem happened very early when Eva […]

Thanks to HarperTeen for providing a copy for review! Honestly, I didn’t even plan on reading this book. Just from the synopsis I wasn’t sure I’d even like it. But I got an ARC in one of my Harper packages, so I figured, why the hell not? Sigh. Now I know why. I would never call anyone’s hard work crap, because I know writing a book is hard and time-consuming and probably devours a little piece of your soul; but […]

*Huge thanks to Harper for providing a review copy! This one was very original, and I seriously love the concept. I do. BUT – the execution kind of ruined it for me. I’m going to be honest here, the world building was pretty crappy. I was confused about a lot of things, and I had a really hard time grasping the world. I couldn’t picture anything in my head, and much of it was so vague on description that I […]

**Huge thanks to HarperTeen for providing a copy for review!  I really enjoyed this one while I was reading it, but looking back I realize: It didn’t make a lasting impression. Which saddens me. The details are already foggy and I have to struggle to remember certain things. But it is an engrossing read, because of the mystery aspect of it. I liked Lily, but I didn’t connect with her quite as much as I’d hoped to. Plus, there were times […]

Besides Taken, this was my most anticipated debut of 2013. Did it disappoint? It surely did not! There was plenty of action, and once this book grabs you it doesn’t let go. I positively LOVED the setting! There are not nearly enough futuristic stories that take place over the water. The idea of a future where Manhattan is almost entirely underwater is fascinating to me. And something cool came from all that water: Roofracing. Now, I tried not to think […]

Find the answers. Solve the problem. You don’t get a life until you make one worth living. I loved Partials. LOVED it (I gave it 5 starfish). Maybe because of this I set my expectations sky high for Fragments, thinking it would be just as good, probably better. I’ll be honest here, I was kinda disappointed. But as you can see, I still gave it 4 stars. Dan Wells is BRILLIANT when it comes to world building. Seriously. He has […]
