Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

The Keeper I didn’t really get much out of this one, since it was stuff we already knew about, but it was kinda cool to get a bit more backstory on Scarlet’s grandma and her time spent hiding Selene’s body. Mostly it just gave us insight into how Cinder was named. Not much else I can say about it! Cinders. Embers. Ashes. Michelle hoped that whatever strength had allowed the child to survive the fire all those years ago was a […]

Review: Sparks Rise by Alexandra Bracken

Review: Sparks Rise by Alexandra Bracken

Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward. Broken. My heart is broken. After the last novella ended, I should have braced myself. Alexandra bracken doesn’t know the meaning of rainbows and sunshine. No Happy Ever Afters. (I’m terrified to read In the Afterlight!) I never cared much for Sam in The Darkest Minds, only because she didn’t have much of a role. Ruby’s feelings of guilt over what happened between them overshadowed anything else. I was actually […]

Review: In Time by Alexandra Bracken

Review: In Time by Alexandra Bracken

At first, I didn’t really care about the story. I tend to see novellas as a waste of time, nothing but filler. But as soon as Zu made an appearance, I was interested. And I found myself becoming more and more invested in the story. And to tell you the truth, this story actually isn’t just filler like most novellas! I didn’t care for Gabe at first, but I think that’s kind of the point. He’s kind of a jerk […]

Mini Review: Praying for Rain by Jay Kristoff

Mini Review: Praying for Rain by Jay Kristoff

My god I missed this world so much!! I loved jumping back into it, even for such a brief time. I had forgotten how beautiful and compelling Jay’s writing was! This is a very short story, so there’s not much to it. But Jay still found a way to pull on my heartstrings. Even though I pretty much knew how it was going to end, I still enjoyed it and it still sucked to see it end! The subject of […]

Mini Review: The Last Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

Mini Review: The Last Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

OH MY GOD JAY WHY DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BREAK MY HEART?! I should have known this would end in tears. IT ALWAYS DOES. *sigh* I’m not usually a fan of novellas because most of the time they only tell a more detailed story of what you already know. But I loooved this one! I freaking love the arashitoras, and reading in the POV of one of them again was like having a little piece of Buruu back. (I […]

Review: Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

This novella was very hard to rate for me. While I still enjoyed it because it’s the Shatter Me world, Adam pissed me off. Really pissed me off. If I hadn’t been Team Warner already after Destroy Me and Unravel Me, this would have firmly secured me there 100%. I can definitely foresee lots of former Team Adam people changing sides, because I don’t know how anyone could stand to be Team Adam after this. Going into this novella, I truly […]
