This was a book club pick, and something I would have never touched in a million years on my own. I have never been a fan of historical fiction and usually avoid it at all costs. So, I ended up being pleasantly surprised by this one! The audiobook was FANTASTIC! I didn’t enjoy the flashbacks a whole lot, because that’s where the historical part really shone through. I didn’t care all that much about Hazel and James or Aubrey and […]

This was good, not great. It was a quick read, and fairly entertaining, but it felt kind of juvenile to me. I feel like there was more focus on drama and romance than the puzzles we were promised. All of the boys felt like the exact same person (with extra jerkness to Grayson, maybe) and I was continuously having issues telling them apart. I was also confused about the love triangle (square??) and the fact that every freakin’ dude in […]

This book was SO BLAND. There was really nothing special about the writing or the characters. The concept was interesting, and was about the only thing this book really had going for it. But honestly? It just felt like a straight rip off of Darkest Minds. An adult version, and not nearly as good of one. The characters are all flat with no personality to speak of, and I didn’t care about any of them or anything that was happening. Color […]

Are you a fan of space books? Are you also a fan of the movie Ghost Ship? LOOK NO FURTHER! This book is for you! And also, this book was 100% for me. I am a huge space horror fan, and it’s sooo hard to find them. Or good ones, at least. This was one of my most anticipated books of 2022, so I was super jazzed when I got it as an eARC in late 2020 from NetGalley. And […]

Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

It actually took me two tries to get into this book. *hides* The first time I just wasn’t in the mood. I didn’t make it very far before I moved on. The second time went a lot better! It does start a little slow, but once it picks up it’s a pretty good read. It gets super intense in a few points! I really enjoyed it while I was reading it, even though it didn’t really stick with me like […]
