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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

How to review this book? I had some very mixed feelings about this book. The concept was actually quite brilliant, but I found the delivery to be lacking. The premise was pretty awesome! Very cool! That is mostly where my enjoyment ended. I didn’t care about any of the characters and couldn’t connect to Narissa. Actually, I didn’t like our lead female much at all. She was kind of immature and hypocritical. There were times where I actually hated her – […]

This book was refreshingly unique! I’m kind of glad I steered away from any reviews before picking this one up. I honestly didn’t really have any idea what to expect because I hadn’t read the synopsis since I added the book way back when it was put on Goodreads. So I really had no idea what it was going to be about! I definitely wasn’t expecting an alien book. I loved that, though! In the beginning you really have no […]

I’ve had this book on my list forever, and last year I was able to meet Melissa and get a copy signed. It’s been sitting on my shelf for months, and I’ve been eyeballing it – because that cover! – but honestly I’ve been putting it off. I wasn’t sure it would be a “me” book, so I was hesitant. Turns out I had nothing to worry about! I can’t believe I waited so long to read this! I was […]
