For me this is one of those books that you enjoy for the most part while reading, but don’t ever think about again after you finish. It was good, not great (just like her Lunar Chronicles were for me personally). Honestly, it kind of felt like a rip off of both The Boys and Steelheart. It didn’t particularly have anything super unique as far as superheroes & villains go to bring to the table. I also didn’t care much for […]

I confess I may have waited a bit too long to write this review. I’ve already forgotten a lot of the book >.< I’m not the biggest contemporary fan, but every once in a while I need a cute and fluffy book to give me a break from the fantasy I usually stick to. And this one totally worked! It was adorable, and I enjoyed the banter between the main characters. I am also a fan of the enemies-to-lovers trope! […]

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” – Milton This book didn’t get to me as much as I’d hoped it would. I didn’t cry while reading it – there were a few quotes that hit me really hard, but I didn’t actually get choked up until I read the author’s note. The book itself fell a bit flat for me, which makes me really sad. I felt […]

This book is a bit hard for me to review, because I had some pretty mixed feelings about it. First of all, I absolutely LOVED the dogs and the search and rescue aspect, that was definitely the selling point! I love animals in stories, and the dogs were a forefront in this one. I also really loved the wilderness setting – it actually reminded me hardcore of Homeward Bound! But, if you remove those two elements that I was quite […]

The concept of this book is incredible! I really loved the unique magic system of “scrived” devices, it was unlike anything I’ve ever read before. That was what kept me going, because I felt totally apathetic about the story and characters. Sancia is everything an MC should be, on paper – badass, resilient, determined, and was a clear underdog (coming from a poor background living on the streets, fighting to survive). She should have been easy to root for, but […]

In case you missed my review for Sanctuary, I absolutely loved the first book! It was gripping, the aliens were chilling, and I loved the dark Alien-esque feel it had going for it. It was a space horror through and through and kept you on the edge of your seat. This book? Not so much. There was some major Second Book Syndrome going on here. The parts that I loved so much about the first book – namely, the scary aliens […]
