For me this is one of those books that you enjoy for the most part while reading, but don’t ever think about again after you finish. It was good, not great (just like her Lunar Chronicles were for me personally). Honestly, it kind of felt like a rip off of both The Boys and Steelheart. It didn’t particularly have anything super unique as far as superheroes & villains go to bring to the table. I also didn’t care much for […]

In the beginning, I was totally hooked. It felt a lot like Aurora Rising: girl wakes up hundreds of years – or in this case, a thousand years – late from cryosleep and everyone she knew is dead and the future is cray. Girl out of time! The girl’s name is even similar – Andromeda (Aurora), or Andra (Auri) for short – maybe not the best decision? But that’s where the similarities to Aurora Rising – as well as my […]

After spending nearly a month trying to get into this one and fighting with myself over picking it back up, I’ve decided it’s time to let go. Which makes me SUPER bummed, because it was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases!! I wanted so badly to love this one, but I made it 200 pages in and I was still struggling hardcore and feeling really apathetic toward it. It started off really strong – I was enjoying the writing, […]

I honestly have NO idea why I put off finishing this series for so long!! I read the second book way back in 2012, and this one came out early 2014, but I just…never read it. Oops. I suck at series. I guess part of me thought I was going to be let down? I’d heard some really mixed things about this last book, so that probably led to me putting it off too. I shouldn’t have worried! Although, I […]

The world is not tame. I needed this SO BAD when I picked it up, without even realizing it. Let’s face it, the world sucks right now and shit is rough. This book’s “appreciate what you have because one day you may not have it” message was something I desperately needed right now. Not to mention I’ve been in a horrible reading slump since everything started happening, and with my own personal issues added on top of it all, I […]

I confess I may have waited a bit too long to write this review. I’ve already forgotten a lot of the book >.< I’m not the biggest contemporary fan, but every once in a while I need a cute and fluffy book to give me a break from the fantasy I usually stick to. And this one totally worked! It was adorable, and I enjoyed the banter between the main characters. I am also a fan of the enemies-to-lovers trope! […]
