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 […]

I felt like I was on drugs reading this book. Either I was on drugs reading it, or the author was on drugs writing it. Don’t get me wrong, I like weird. And this book was nothing if not unique. But sometimes the wtfery got a bit thick even for me, and more than once while listening I said out loud, “wait, what?” or “I don’t even know what the hell is going on.” There were a couple times I […]

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 […]

It’s not very often that I find a book that makes me literally laugh out loud, so I genuinely cherish Shelby as an author! The wit and humor that I loved so much from the first book was still present in this one, which makes me so happy! I do think that this suffered from a bit of Second Book Syndrome. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It felt like filler, to […]
