In the beginning, I was totally hooked. It felt a lot like Aurora Rising: girl wakes up hundreds of years – or in this case, a thousand years – late from cryosleep and everyone she knew is dead and the future is cray. Girl out of time! The girl’s name is even similar – Andromeda (Aurora), or Andra (Auri) for short – maybe not the best decision? But that’s where the similarities to Aurora Rising – as well as my […]

Oh look, another dragon book that utterly disappointed me. *long suffering sigh* First of all, STOP. COMPARING. BOOKS. TO. OTHER. BOOKS. This is compared to Red Rising and Game of Thrones in the blurb. THIS BOOK IS LITERALLY NOTHING LIKE RED RISING, which is a glorious masterpiece of a series. Or Game of Thrones, other than having dragons. This book has absolutely nothing in common with either, and is even more pitiful in comparison. I’m so tired of that marketing […]

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. I have some pretty mixed feelings about this book, but overall I feel pretty meh about it. Which makes it hard to review. The concept was fairly awesome. And kinda scary, really: In the future, there are no physical books or written words (they’re not banned, but people get paid to turn in paper and there’s a tax for using it, so they’re super rare) – basically everything is […]

To be honest, I don’t remember much of this book. I put off reviewing this because after finishing I felt meh about the book and didn’t have much to say about it, so I just never wrote a review. And now I’ve already forgotten a lot of it, even though I just read it two months ago. It just wasn’t a memorable story. Actually, it was quite generic. Super bland, basic dystopian. It felt a lot like a Hunger Games […]

Review: Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

What I liked: The storytelling. It was absolutely brilliant! I love how things were unveiled and it kind of throws you for a loop. Secrets, lies, and betrayal! I love how each of the queens had something to hide, and their secrets slowly came to light. They were each breaking the queenly law in some way. The world. The concept of the world was really interesting, albeit a bit vague – four distinct quadrants of Quadara, four ruling queens. I’ll […]

Let me start this off by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Asian Fantasy. It’s actually my favorite sub-genre and I crave more of it. I was super excited for this book because not only is it AF, it’s #ownvoices! (If you’re looking for some amazing #ownvoices Asian Fantasy I highly recommend Shadow of the Fox and Girls of Paper & Fire!) Sadly, this book fell flat for me. But, the one thing I did love was the Asian aspect […]
