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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
