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 […]

CAUTION: SPOILERS FOR ZERO REPEAT FOREVER Oh my gosh, why did I put off reading this book for so long?! To be honest I was kind of worried that it would have Second Book Syndrome and would disappoint me after I loved Zero Repeat Forever so freaking much. I needn’t have worried, because it was pretty much just as amazing as the first book! The first book starts off kind of slow in the beginning. This book is almost non-stop […]

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 […]
