[Lots of spoilers ahead, but all are in tags. DO NOT CLICK THEM IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK. No, seriously. They will ruin it for you because they are doozies. Just don’t do it, man.] For the majority of this book, I feel like there wasn’t really anything happening. I got fairly bored with the audio because it was moving at a snail’s pace. I listened to it while traveling to Florida, and I actually had to turn it […]

The concept for this story was amazing! I love anything time travel, and I was impressed with the notion of a branch of the military assigned to monitoring historical events and alteration of them. Very cool! It’s definitely not like any other time travel book out there. I found the setup of the Annum Guard fascinating! The Annum watches were totally awesome! I liked their system of code names, too: Numbers for first generation, Greek alphabet for second, and colors […]

Going into this, I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to like it. First of all, it was really over-hyped. Which tend to be the kind of books I end up not liking. Second, the negative reviews I read scared me away. A few things I heard about this book that made me not want to read it: Despite the title, it’s not actually about zombies. Or Alice in Wonderland. Gena Showalter tried too hard to make the prose sound like […]

The darkest minds tend to hide behind the most unlikely faces. Why oh why did I wait so long to read this book?! I was afraid to pick it up because of the hype surrounding it. (I’m sure you all know by now that I tend to be the black sheep with those kind of books!) But I was pleasantly surprised! The beginning was EPIC. The scene where the orange kid whispers in the PSF’s ear and the PSF lifts […]

So, I finally read this book. Took me long enough, eh? It didn’t really blow me away, but I did really enjoy it. I must admit that this book is very difficult to review as I don’t have much to say other than it was beautiful and heartbreaking! John Green’s writing style is epic. He makes even the most mundane things seem interesting, and that was what made me enjoy this so much. There was hardly anything going on for […]

Moira Young is fabulous at world building! I love the world in the Dust Lands series and I was more than ready to dive back into it, bad grammar and all. (Which is why I refused to read it, I actually bought the audio because my library didn’t have it!) I still enjoyed it, but it didn’t quite have the magic that Blood Red Road had. I didn’t feel like there was much happening plot-wise and it was just lacking something […]
