WOW. Just wow. This book was my #1 MOST anticipated book of 2015, and let me just say that it did not disappoint! I was absolutely blown away! I don’t know how my review can ever do this book justice. Seriously. This is the kind of book that is the first of its kind. Every other sci-fi is going to wish it were this book. I know many other writers are going to try to re-create the style of this […]

I saw Mindee at a signing a while back, and during the panel she said that while writing this book, her mind was in a very dark place. That as a result, this book was dark. Which was why I was so excited to read this: I loooove dark! It wasn’t quite as dark story-wise as I was hoping, but Jeth? That’s another story. He was very dark in this book. It’s refreshing to read an MC with flaws, one that screws […]

The fact that this novel takes place in space was enough to make me like it. Space stories are so few and far between! There’s a certain magic to the idea of being in space (Treasure Planet!) and this one really captured that magic. The first line was ‘Stealing a spaceship shouldn’t be this easy.’ Talk about getting your attention! It was also very unique. The idea of metatech and metaspace was very intriguing, as were the Pyreans and Empyria! […]

Mini Review: As They Slip Away by Beth Revis

This story was so twisted! Which usually I would like, but I couldn’t bring myself to care about Selene.  I didn’t really like her much, either. She claims to love Bartie and she’s pining for him, but as soon as Luthor comes around, she forgets about Bartie pretty quickly. She kisses Luthor even though she barely knows him. I feel like things were rushed, but that was probably only because this is such a short novella. I do like that […]

Review: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

These Broken Stars is kinda like Shades of Earth meets Titanic, and it’s unlike anything else I’ve read. The world building was by far my favorite part of this book! I loved the feel of the story, and the planet’s energy-based life forms. Their abilities were fascinating!  This is a hell I’ve never imagined. And I think I’m going to die here. I didn’t care much for Lilac in the beginning. She’s a spoiled rich brat who’s lived a frilly life without […]

Caution: Possible spoilers for the previous books! It’s strange to have this series come to an end. To be honest, there aren’t many series I’ve actually seen all the way through (seriously, I can count them on one hand), so it’s not a feeling I’m used to! (I have some serious series commitment issues O_O) But this was a perfect conclusion to a fabulous sci-fi trilogy! The best part: Centauri-Earth! EEP! We finally get to see it! And after the […]
