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 […]

Hooboy *takes deep breath* This is not going to be pretty. Honestly, I should have just DNFed this book. The only reason I didn’t is because the world was intriguing and in the beginning I was really interested. But sadly, the farther I read, the worse it got. I’ll start with the positive: The concept was FANTASTIC. In the beginning, I was so onboard! It felt so much like Waterworld, which I love. The idea of a post-apocalyptic world of […]

I absolutely LOVED this origin story of how the crazy yet endearing AIDAN that we know was born! It’s kinda creepy, because you can see where he’s coming from even as he makes horrific choices. He always has the best interest of the fleet in mind, but is murder justifiable for survival? It brings into question humanity, and the morality of weighing one life against many, or even one deemed more valuable. Chilling! Even though this was only 82 pages, […]

Holy crap, no second book syndrome here! It’s very rare that I love a sequel almost as much as the first book, but this one really delivered. I highly suggest reading this book BEFORE reading my review – going in, you know basically nothing about the plot because the synopsis doesn’t give you much. It’s so hard to talk about this book without giving anything away! So if you want to go in blind and be surprised like I was […]

Wow, what a wild ride!! This book was explosive and action packed from start to finish! The second book dragged in the beginning, but this one definitely did NOT have that problem. There was never a dull moment! I have to say, Emily Suvada never disappoints when it comes to dropping bombs. So many surprises! “We’re both monsters, Jun Bei. That’s what they made us into. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do good in this world.” Jun Bei was ruthless […]

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. I have some pretty mixed feelings about this book, but overall I feel pretty meh about it. Which makes it hard to review. The concept was fairly awesome. And kinda scary, really: In the future, there are no physical books or written words (they’re not banned, but people get paid to turn in paper and there’s a tax for using it, so they’re super rare) – basically everything is […]
