Early Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

Early Review: The Taking by Kimberly Derting

While I’m not a huge fan of aliens, I do love creepy abduction stories when they’re done well. The alien aspect of this book had me hooked! How much would it suck to disappear one day, only to reappear 5 years later – with absolutely NO recollection of what happened – and your life changed completely without you? I can’t even imagine! That was the most interesting part of the beginning for me. I have to admit, though, I got […]

Review: Rush by Eve Silver

Review: Rush by Eve Silver

I was seriously looking forward to this book! It was one of my most anticipated summer releases. I was seriously disappointed. It’s not that I didn’t like it. It was just meh. And for some reason it really reminded me of Doomed by Tracy Deebs, so it kinda felt like I had read it already. My main problem was that I didn’t give a crap about any of the characters. They were all cardboard cutouts with little to no personality […]

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

After seeing all the glowing reviews for this book, I was sure I was going to love it; yet at the same time, afraid I wouldn’t. But love it I did! I usually feel kinda blah about alien stories, but this was one of the best ones I’ve ever read! I was hooked right from the very first chapter with the owl, which reminded me of the movie The Fourth Kind (only way, waaaay better). Rick Yancey’s prose is engaging […]

Review: The Rules by Stacey Kade

Review: The Rules by Stacey Kade

Big thanks to my loverly Nator twin for sending me a copy! <3  I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. But I was pleasantly surprised! I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. First of all, it wasn’t as much about alien experimentation as much as it was a vengeance campaign against the high school mean girl. That’s what about 70% of this book consisted of. Not that […]

Review: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Review: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Caution: Possible spoilers for the previous books! It’s strange to have this series come to an end. To be honest, there aren’t many series I’ve actually seen all the way through (seriously, I can count them on one hand), so it’s not a feeling I’m used to! (I have some serious series commitment issues O_O) But this was a perfect conclusion to a fabulous sci-fi trilogy! The best part: Centauri-Earth! EEP! We finally get to see it! And after the […]

Review: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I was a little disappointed in this one. I love the world of Lux, but I can’t quite give it 5 stars like I gave the last two. I felt like there was a little less action in this one, and it was missing something – I just can’t really put my finger on exactly what. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it, there was just a disconnect for some reason. It makes me sad… I still loved Daemon – […]
