Review: Disruption by Jessica Shirvington

Review: Disruption by Jessica Shirvington

Wow! I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I loooved all the cool science-y tech involved! The concept of the pheromone technology was super awesome! Kinda scary, actually, seeing as how it’s not all that far-fetched. Everyone became so dependent on the Phera-tech that they no longer followed their hearts. I can’t imagine how horrible it would be to pair yourself with someone based solely on what a piece of machinery tells you, and not because you […]

Review: Ruins by Dan Wells

Review: Ruins by Dan Wells

“Waging war is the easy part – making peace will be the hardest thing we’ve ever done.” Dan Wells is a pro at storytelling. He brings the world to life! It’s always so easy to imagine the story as real because everything is so convincing. The world & setting is by far my favorite part of this entire series – the world building is cinematic! “You weren’t ‘designed’ to cure RM, but you did it anyway. You weren’t designed to […]

Review: Parasite by Mira Grant

Review: Parasite by Mira Grant

The uniqueness of this book was the selling quality for me. The idea was crazy, but also completely logical. It was done so well that I felt like it could actually happen! I didn’t really care for Sal, to be honest. She was rather flat and dull to me, and I couldn’t connect with her at all. I felt nothing reading from her perspective because she was so detached and clinical about everything. The emotion just wasn’t there. There were a […]

Review: Altered by Jennifer Rush

Review: Altered by Jennifer Rush

When I was reading this, I loved it. But now that a few days have passed, I realized: This book is forgettable. For me, at least. The pacing was quick and there were times when I was so engrossed that I couldn’t put the book down. But now, looking back, I find I have to think hard to remember the details, although it’s only been a couple days since I finished. That’s not a good thing. I liked Anna. Liked, […]

Early Review: Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

Early Review: Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

Eve and Adam was a bit strange at times, but I loved the writing style because it was quirky and engaging. There was humor at frequent intervals (and some innuendos) and the prose held my interest even when there wasn’t really anything exciting happening. It was fairly short, so it was a quick and easy read. Evening was a solid lead. She was smart and witty and there was nothing she did in the book to annoy me, which is […]

DNF Review: Origin by Jessica Khoury

DNF Review: Origin by Jessica Khoury

**WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD** I usually hate to include spoilers in any review, but the reason I put this down is based off of a spoiler, so that’s most of what this review will entail. I think my hopes for this one were much too high before I picked it up. The story was decent. The originality was great. The characters…eh. I love the premise, really I do. A flower that can make people immortal and a perfect being with impenetrable […]
