Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

It’s been a long time since I read Nyxia, so I don’t remember much of it. While it didn’t stick with me like I’d hoped, I did really enjoy it while I was reading! I love sci-fi, so this one was definitely a Jessi book. I loved the concept of the Nyxia itself, soooo awesome! I loved the idea of being able to control it and mold it into whatever you want with your mind. I definitely look forward to […]

Mini Review: Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller

Mini Review: Shadow Run by Adrianne Strickland & Michael Miller

What I liked: Space! Shadow, and Qole’s ability to wield it ….well, crap, that’s it What I didn’t like: The horrible pacing The dual POVs. It was very confusing and I often forgot who I was reading. There wasn’t really a distinction between them The “white people are royalty and dark people are savages” trope. I’m not sure it was intended that way, as there were dark skinned people in the palace as well, but poor/careless writing nonetheless (am I […]

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I’ll do it or I’ll destroy this empire trying. HOLY. WOW. YOU GUYS. I was totally blown away by this book! This is one of the most unique concepts I’ve read in a very long time! The Diabolic has a very vivid setting with thought out, complex world building. It felt very real and I was super impressed! (A map would have been nice though. Hopefully in the finished copy!) This book felt much like a mixture of Red Rising & Hunger Games. Everything […]

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Patience and Silence had one beautiful daughter. And her name was Vengeance. Oh my god, where do I even start?! I honestly don’t think anything I could say about this book could ever actually do it justice. Illuminae was absolutely epic. I daresay that Gemina was even better! (HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!) Like I said in my review of Illuminae, I’ve never read anything like this series. If you didn’t already know, it’s told in a series of hacked documents – […]

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I’m beyond disappointed in this book. It had SO many glowing reviews, and came highly recommended from several blogging friends. I thought for sure it was going to be amazing, yet I hated what I did read of it. (I even watched the movie and wasn’t impressed with that, either. The whole “children are the only ones who can save the world” is just too much for me I suppose…) I made it a little past 100 pages or so before […]

Review: This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

She pushes through the broken stars, which shatter and fall around her like curtains of rain. I didn’t really expect this to be a companion novel, to be honest. I guess I just saw it was the follow up to These Broken Stars and was all OH SEQUEL and didn’t really bother to read the synopsis. I loved These Broken Stars – I gave it 4.5/5. While I still enjoyed this one, it didn’t quite have the magic that the first […]
