Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

Review: Pacifica by Kristen Simmons

Kristen sure has a way with writing characters and building worlds! There wasn’t a huge amount of action in the first half because she spent a lot of time really building up those parts. And it made them feel so vivid and real! The pacing is a bit slow to start, but it gives you time to savor the world and understand it, and also savor the character development. Kristen also has a way of writing an empowering story of […]

Review: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

Review: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

I’ll always come back for you. I promise you on iron and stars. This book started off horribly slow, but did get more interesting as it went on. It was good for a debut. It was also an interesting mix of sci-fi and high fantasy – while it felt very strongly like a sci-fi, the setting was HF. My main complaint is that this book was horribly, painfully predictable. It also felt rather generic. It’s a retelling of Anastasia, which […]

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

It’s been a long time since I read Nyxia, so I don’t remember much of it. While it didn’t stick with me like I’d hoped, I did really enjoy it while I was reading! I love sci-fi, so this one was definitely a Jessi book. I loved the concept of the Nyxia itself, soooo awesome! I loved the idea of being able to control it and mold it into whatever you want with your mind. I definitely look forward to […]

Review: A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber

Review: A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber

Just like the title says, this story was a BEAUTIFUL. FRIENDSHIP. If you want a story about a beautiful, unconditional, powerful bond between a cat and a person, this story is for you ;) I freaking LOVED the treecats!!! They were 10000% of why I loved this book so much. I freaking LOVED Climbs Quickly/Lionheart!! Oh my lawd I loved him. *cries* Loveloveloveloooove (how many times can I say love without sounding redundant? But I can’t help it, IT’S TRUE OKAY.) […]

Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

“Everything’s science fiction until someone makes it science fact.” For once, a book that lives up to its hype! I was on the fence about this one, because a) honestly the cover is awful (but it is growing on me), b) I tend to be the black sheep on super hyped books, and c) Marie Lu’s books are hit or miss for me (Legend was great but the finale fell short, Young Elites was amazing but I didn’t like the second […]
