I felt disappointed with this book in some nameless way that I can’t explain. I really don’t know why, but it just didn’t have the magic that the first and second book had. I still loved the characters – Spensa is tough as nails and an MC worth rooting for, M-Bot is hilarious and his struggle with emotions is endearing, and I enjoyed the introduction of  Chet as well. I also have to admit that I didn’t know there would […]

While we fight, there is hope. What a BEAUTIFUL ending to an amazing series!! I was lucky enough to get my hands on an eARC of this book before its release (thanks, Christy!!), but I never got around to reviewing it because I was wedding planning. I had pre-ordered the audiobook because the Aurora Cycle audiobooks are some of my faves, so when it came out I listened to it as a re-read! Aurora Burning left all our beloved characters […]

Welp, first DNF of the year! This book actually started off pretty strong. In the beginning I was into it, and excited about the space aspect. I love space books! Sadly, while the concept was awesome, the delivery was pretty awful. When I saw how bad the reviews were, I was worried; but I was still hopeful, because almost all of the negative ones were audio (which apparently is very robotic, yikes) and I tend to be the black sheep […]

Caution: Possible spoilers for Aurora Rising HOLY. SHIT. YOU GUYS. This was my most anticipated 2020 release, and it did NOT disappoint! It was just as amazing and epic and mind blowing as Aurora Rising was. No second book syndrome here! I devoured this book within 24 hours of receiving it (and may or may not have screeched like a banshee and done a happy dance when it arrived, heh). Feeling so tiny makes me realize just how big what […]

Holy crap, WHY did I wait so long to read this?! I’d heard of it, but never really heard ABOUT it. I knew it existed, it was on my Goodreads TBR, but I never really looked twice at it. I recently posted in the Epic Reads Book Club group on Facebook looking for obscure and underrated books and someone suggested this one. I went and looked it up, and: Sentient alien spaceships?! Give me NOW! I went and bought it […]

Review: All Systems Red by Martha Wells

Review: All Systems Red by Martha Wells

Being only 149 pages, this book was super quick and easy to read. Which I’m grateful for, because the beginning was a struggle for me. Despite the short length, it still took me nearly 80 pages to become invested, and even then there was one reason and one reason only I cared at all: Murderbot. So, I’m awkward with actual humans. It’s not paranoia about my hacked governor module, and it’s not them; it’s me. I know I’m a horrifying […]
