ARC Review: DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff

ARC Review: DEV1AT3 by Jay Kristoff

CAUTION: MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR LIFEL1K3 So, with the way the first book left off, I was wondering hardcore where that would leave us and what would happen next. The character turnarounds in this one were astounding! I’m sad that Eve is basically a villain now, but it makes for a really interesting story! I’m hoping there’s still some redemption for her in the future. It’s kind of scary how far off the deep end she went after the revelations in […]

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic. SQUAD GOALS!! I loved this band of misfits so much! I adored every single one of the characters, and they each had their own distinct personalities. Switching POVs doesn’t usually work for me, but it did in this book! You get to see seven different points of view, which sounds intimidating but it really works here. It gives you a feel for each of the […]

Review: The Pioneer by Bridget Tyler

Review: The Pioneer by Bridget Tyler

This was such a great debut sci-fi! It was definitely right up my alley. I went in not really knowing much and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it! The beginning started out with a bang – I actually read this in the middle of a reading slump so I needed something to grab me right away and this one definitely did. I absolutely love books about finding and colonizing new planets. I love seeing what authors imagine the […]

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

After reading Skyward, I immediately started seeking out other Sanderson books. This was one I had tried to read forever ago, couldn’t get into (probably a total mood thing, I’m such a mood reader), and have been meaning to try again forever! I’m glad I finally picked it up! I loved the concept of this one! The Epics and their powers were awesome, and I loved that the power basically corrupted them. There were no superheroes, only super-villains. I thought it […]

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Claim the stars. I had been DYING for this book, but I tried to read Mistborn and couldn’t get into it, so I was worried I wouldn’t like this one. I needn’t have worried, because I loved it!! It was such a fun and engaging read, and honestly the perfect Jessi book because 1) it’s sci-fi, 2) it’s set in space, and 3) it has tons of awesome banter! Three things that are a huge win for me! The setting […]

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

I was sooo torn on this book. On one hand, I enjoyed it; but on the other, it was pretty freakin’ irritating. I’m gonna break it down by likes and dislikes because I have warring emotions! Things I liked: The world and concept – space! Aliens! Right up my alley. The world had an awesome Mars feel going for it. The nanites were cool, the races were cool, I enjoyed the whole world in general! Eros – I felt SO […]
