It’s not very often that I find a book that makes me literally laugh out loud, so I genuinely cherish Shelby as an author! The wit and humor that I loved so much from the first book was still present in this one, which makes me so happy! I do think that this suffered from a bit of Second Book Syndrome. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It felt like filler, to […]

I was born of this dust, and I am never going to escape it. This is the book I’ve been waiting for and didn’t even know it! In the sea of 3 star books I’ve read in the past few months, it was refreshing to read something that sucked me in, and I needed that. The cover and synopsis drew me in when I first heard about this one, but I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it because Bowman’s books […]

Okay, so I let this review go WAY too long! I don’t know why, I loved this book just like I love all of Jay’s other stuff. But for some reason, it didn’t stick with me like the first two books did. I even listened to it via audio as a re-read and STILL barely remember anything *hides* Not to say I didn’t enjoy the shit out of it – I definitely did! As always, Jay grabs you by the […]

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. I have some pretty mixed feelings about this book, but overall I feel pretty meh about it. Which makes it hard to review. The concept was fairly awesome. And kinda scary, really: In the future, there are no physical books or written words (they’re not banned, but people get paid to turn in paper and there’s a tax for using it, so they’re super rare) – basically everything is […]

If we cannot engineer salvation for our men, then vengeance will suffice. Holy….. FUCK. You. Guys. Like, wow. This book was SO incredibly brutal, it slew me! I knew it was going to be bad, but I never expected how bad. You think things can’t get any worse, and then…they do. PREPARE FOR TEARS, GUYS. It starts off a little slow, but I wasn’t bored with this one like I was with Iron Gold. It’s got a lot of politics […]

To be honest, I don’t remember much of this book. I put off reviewing this because after finishing I felt meh about the book and didn’t have much to say about it, so I just never wrote a review. And now I’ve already forgotten a lot of it, even though I just read it two months ago. It just wasn’t a memorable story. Actually, it was quite generic. Super bland, basic dystopian. It felt a lot like a Hunger Games […]
