Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Claim the stars. I had been DYING for this book, but I tried to read Mistborn and couldn’t get into it, so I was worried I wouldn’t like this one. I needn’t have worried, because I loved it!! It was such a fun and engaging read, and honestly the perfect Jessi book because 1) it’s sci-fi, 2) it’s set in space, and 3) it has tons of awesome banter! Three things that are a huge win for me! The setting […]

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

I was sooo torn on this book. On one hand, I enjoyed it; but on the other, it was pretty freakin’ irritating. I’m gonna break it down by likes and dislikes because I have warring emotions! Things I liked: The world and concept – space! Aliens! Right up my alley. The world had an awesome Mars feel going for it. The nanites were cool, the races were cool, I enjoyed the whole world in general! Eros – I felt SO […]

Review: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson

Review: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson

I had such high hopes for this book, but sadly I was disappointed. It’s got great reviews, too, so looks like I was the black sheep yet again *shrugs* Mostly I was bored. The mystery of not knowing why people were dying kept me going, but I found the plot and the book overall to be very dull. The prose was choppy and awkward and I had trouble getting into it. We are given ZERO description whatsoever, so I had […]

[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

Holy WOW, that was intense!!!! I have to admit that this one started out a bit rocky. When I first met Tuck, it seemed like his narrative was trying too hard to be a cocky teenage male. (Also, there was an unnecessary comparison of his shrunken balls to walnuts, like why??) But in the first few pages this book grabs you by the balls (see, now he’s got me talking about balls) and doesn’t let go! The monsters in this book – mourners, […]

Review: Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

Review: Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

Fall down seven times. Get up eight. Holy crap, this book was awesome!! To be honest I didn’t know what to expect going in – I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not, and after seeing it pitched as compared to the Darkest Minds, I was skeptical. Surprisingly, I was blown away!! I wasn’t too sure in the beginning, though – I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing for some reason that I couldn’t quite […]

Review: Contagion by Erin Bowman

Review: Contagion by Erin Bowman

It’s been a while since I read this, so this will be a short review. But I really enjoyed it! This one was SUPER creepy, I loved that about it! It had a very strong Alien meets Pitch Black feel to it (which basically means it was awesome). It was incredibly fast paced and cinematic! I loved the mystery to it in the beginning – you don’t know much about what’s going on, and it keeps you interested. This would make […]
