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 […]

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

The die is cast. But today we will shake the table upon which it lands. Okay, I have been putting off this review for far too long… *hides face* To be completely honest, in comparison to the other two books, I was underwhelmed. IT KILLS ME TO ADMIT THAT. I mean, don’t get me wrong – I still loved it!! Of course I still loved it. But the first half was slooow in a way that the first two never […]

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 […]
