Review: Containment by Caryn Lix

Review: Containment by Caryn Lix

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 […]

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

I was sooo torn on this book. On one hand, I enjoyed it; but on the other, it was pretty freakin’ irritating. I’m gonna break it down by likes and dislikes because I have warring emotions! Things I liked: The world and concept – space! Aliens! Right up my alley. The world had an awesome Mars feel going for it. The nanites were cool, the races were cool, I enjoyed the whole world in general! Eros – I felt SO […]

Review: Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

Review: Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

Fall down seven times. Get up eight. Holy crap, this book was awesome!! To be honest I didn’t know what to expect going in – I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not, and after seeing it pitched as compared to the Darkest Minds, I was skeptical. Surprisingly, I was blown away!! I wasn’t too sure in the beginning, though – I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing for some reason that I couldn’t quite […]

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I’m beyond disappointed in this book. It had SO many glowing reviews, and came highly recommended from several blogging friends. I thought for sure it was going to be amazing, yet I hated what I did read of it. (I even watched the movie and wasn’t impressed with that, either. The whole “children are the only ones who can save the world” is just too much for me I suppose…) I made it a little past 100 pages or so before […]

Harper Summer 2016 Tour: The Hunt by Megan Shepherd Review & Giveaway

Harper Summer 2016 Tour: The Hunt by Megan Shepherd Review & Giveaway

I love this world because it’s so unique. Megan Shepherd has created a story unlike any I’ve ever read before! Cora and her friends might have escaped the Cage, but all they did was trade it for another cage. This one was just as creepy as the last! Despite the fact that the Kindred claimed to not kill humans, they were still terrifying. They’re still captors! They controlled everything the humans did. The humans were no better than slaves to […]

Mini Review: Invaded by Melissa Landers

Mini Review: Invaded by Melissa Landers

Oh how I missed Cara’s snark and Aelyx’s banter! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this world. I really like the L’eihr and their culture! It was awesome to finally see the planet. I found it interesting that Cara and Aelyx were struggling with the same things, despite being on two totally different worlds. Fitting in, being homesick, missing each other. It kinda showed that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I totally loved Aelyx’s cat (cat […]
