This book doesn’t have anything to do with an actual circus, so don’t let the title fool you. Think brutal alien Hunger Games, with kidnapped girls! It is definitely reminiscent of Hunger Games; however, to me it still stood out on its own. I saw some complaints that it was a regurgitated story, and yes maybe that’s true for the plot (the whole brutal competition part), but I found the world itself to be very unique! First of all, I […]

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 […]

This is a hard book to review, because I have pretty mixed feelings about it. In the beginning, it felt very much like a rip off of Zero Repeat Forever, which is one of my all time favorite books (read: those are some VERY big shoes to fill). The dynamic between M0rR1s (Morris to humans, audiobook narrator pronounced it “em-zero-one-is” in Ilori language) and Janelle is VERY similar to August and Raven. Their personalities are incredibly similar as well – Janelle […]

Welp, first DNF of the year! This book actually started off pretty strong. In the beginning I was into it, and excited about the space aspect. I love space books! Sadly, while the concept was awesome, the delivery was pretty awful. When I saw how bad the reviews were, I was worried; but I was still hopeful, because almost all of the negative ones were audio (which apparently is very robotic, yikes) and I tend to be the black sheep […]

Holy crap, WHY did I wait so long to read this?! I’d heard of it, but never really heard ABOUT it. I knew it existed, it was on my Goodreads TBR, but I never really looked twice at it. I recently posted in the Epic Reads Book Club group on Facebook looking for obscure and underrated books and someone suggested this one. I went and looked it up, and: Sentient alien spaceships?! Give me NOW! I went and bought it […]

Holy crap, no second book syndrome here! It’s very rare that I love a sequel almost as much as the first book, but this one really delivered. I highly suggest reading this book BEFORE reading my review – going in, you know basically nothing about the plot because the synopsis doesn’t give you much. It’s so hard to talk about this book without giving anything away! So if you want to go in blind and be surprised like I was […]
