WOW!! This is the single most unique world in any book that I’ve read for as long as I can remember! And it’s been a very long time since a book captivated me as much as this one did. It wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns, I’m afraid…other than the first chapter (which definitely got my attention), the beginning was painfully slow. At first, I really only cared for Noon’s chapters – hers grabbed me from the very start – and […]

This one was okay, not great. I don’t remember much about it, to be honest, because I was severely bored throughout the entire story. However, narration by Jonathan Keeble was absolutely fantastic and kept me going. Spot on voices for each character and brought the story to life! I’ll probably seek out more works by this narrator. He saved the book for me, because I probably would have DNFed if I’d physically read it. The world was interesting but the […]

I felt disappointed with this book in some nameless way that I can’t explain. I really don’t know why, but it just didn’t have the magic that the first and second book had. I still loved the characters – Spensa is tough as nails and an MC worth rooting for, M-Bot is hilarious and his struggle with emotions is endearing, and I enjoyed the introduction of  Chet as well. I also have to admit that I didn’t know there would […]

While we fight, there is hope. What a BEAUTIFUL ending to an amazing series!! I was lucky enough to get my hands on an eARC of this book before its release (thanks, Christy!!), but I never got around to reviewing it because I was wedding planning. I had pre-ordered the audiobook because the Aurora Cycle audiobooks are some of my faves, so when it came out I listened to it as a re-read! Aurora Burning left all our beloved characters […]

DNF @ 50% (second try) I give up. I gave it a valiant effort. I really did. The first time I made it right around the 100 page mark before I gave up from boredom. But, this book has a ridiculous amount of raving reviews, so I thought I’d give the audio a shot in hopes that it’d be better. It wasn’t. I wasn’t a fan of the narrator at ALL. He was SO boring! Some of the accents and […]

Okay, so this book took me foreeeever.  I started this behemoth September 20th. Didn’t finish until November freaking 22nd. TWO. MONTHS. To be fair, I was planning my wedding and was balls deep in wedding stuff (which was November 6th, and my glorious husband messaged Jay about it and he actually recorded a “happy marriage” video for me *insert squealing, puppy eyes, and tears*) so I didn’t have much time to read. Plus, this book is HEAVY. It probably took […]
