Seeker by Veronica Rossi Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

No second book syndrome here, folks! Wowza! Seeker was just as explosive as Riders was! “Real gold is the value of truth. It’s friends you respect who respect you back. It’s what we have – you and me. That’s real gold.” My favorite part about this book – besides the horses, of course – is the very strong sense of family that the group of Riders and Daryn have going for them. They literally risk their lives to look for […]

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I’ll do it or I’ll destroy this empire trying. HOLY. WOW. YOU GUYS. I was totally blown away by this book! This is one of the most unique concepts I’ve read in a very long time! The Diabolic has a very vivid setting with thought out, complex world building. It felt very real and I was super impressed! (A map would have been nice though. Hopefully in the finished copy!) This book felt much like a mixture of Red Rising & Hunger Games. Everything […]

Review: Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken

Review: Through the Dark by Alexandra Bracken

One day, we will ignite and create a blaze that no one can put out, ignore, hurt. We will move forward as one, and in time, rise like sparks beyond the night. In Time At first, I didn’t really care about the story. I tend to see novellas as a waste of time, nothing but filler. But as soon as Zu made an appearance, I was interested. And I found myself becoming more and more invested in the story. And […]

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Patience and Silence had one beautiful daughter. And her name was Vengeance. Oh my god, where do I even start?! I honestly don’t think anything I could say about this book could ever actually do it justice. Illuminae was absolutely epic. I daresay that Gemina was even better! (HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!) Like I said in my review of Illuminae, I’ve never read anything like this series. If you didn’t already know, it’s told in a series of hacked documents – […]

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

Review: Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

This was Metaltown. Things didn’t change in Metaltown. You changed, and if you didn’t you paid. Beautifully written as always, Kristen! This book was dark and gritty, and perfectly portrayed the struggles of the world. It was such a beautiful and (and heartbreaking) story! I love that it showed the power of rising up and letting your voice be heard. The unfairness of everything really struck me, I thought Kristen did a fabulous job driving that home! I really felt for the characters and […]

Review: Disruption by Jessica Shirvington

Review: Disruption by Jessica Shirvington

Wow! I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I loooved all the cool science-y tech involved! The concept of the pheromone technology was super awesome! Kinda scary, actually, seeing as how it’s not all that far-fetched. Everyone became so dependent on the Phera-tech that they no longer followed their hearts. I can’t imagine how horrible it would be to pair yourself with someone based solely on what a piece of machinery tells you, and not because you […]
