I’m afraid this is yet another book that has second book syndrome for me, sadly. It just didn’t have the magic that the first book had! I still highly enjoyed Rick Yancey’s writing style. His prose is beautiful! I’m afraid, though, that I didn’t really connect with the story like I’d hoped. As you can see in my Assessment section, my feels were fairly low. Even the super shocking scenes didn’t spark much for me. No gasping, no gaping, no WTF?!s […]

I loved The Rules. LOVED it (I rated it 5 heartbeats!). Sadly, though, the sequel lacked the magic of the first book. I still enjoyed it for the most part, but it didn’t wow me like the first book did. I felt like little to nothing actually happened in the first 3/4 of this book, and the pacing dragged in the middle. It was mostly Zane and Ariane bickering and disagreeing and keeping things from each other. I understand that conflict […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
