Ever feel like you’re just in a reading slump, and you’re pretty sure nothing you’ve got on your bookshelf is gonna solve it? Today, I’m going to share with you the book that solved mine. Last weekend, I was looking for a YA standalone that’d be a fast read with great characters & worldbuilding, and my awesome friend Carrie suggested three awesome ...
I feel like Raging Star mostly lived up to my hopes for an end to this series. I honestly had forgotten a lot of what happened in these books (and maybe thought that they happened in a different series don’ttellanybody), but as it all came back to me, I got really excited. I’ve grown to love these characters over ...
Sia has just 15 days to live. 15 days to cram in whatever she still wants to do with the rest of her life. Or…15 days to figure out how to save her family. I love novels like Dark Days–the pressure’s on because there’s a finite amount of time to work with, and the characters have to really move. Sia and her family ...
So, I know there’s a movie of Never Let Me Go out there in the world, but I refuse to see it. I fell so completely, unbelievably in love with this book, with Ishiguro’s writing, and with the unbelievable way in which this story was revealed, that I can’t imagine there’s any way I’ll be impressed with the film. ...
I really wanted to fall in love with Burn Out, but it just didn’t quite flow for me. From Goodreads: A futuristic blend of Beth Revis’s Across the Universe and Lenore Appelhans’s Level 2, Burn Out will satisfy the growing desire for science fiction with a thrilling story of survival, intrigue, and adventure. Most people want to save the world; seventeen-year-old Tora Reynolds ...
Some of you might have seen my Instagram about this book, in which I admitted to refreshing the Kindle Store about seventyzillion times after midnight, until I could download Into the Still Blue. True story. I have enjoyed this series so much, and I could not wait to get my hot little hands on the final book. I was a ...
Not a Drop to Drink has been on my to-read list for several months, and I finally had a break in my ARC schedule long enough to read this. It gets all kinds of rave reviews, and so I’d been dying to get to it. Turns out, I thought it was… well, bleak. Heart-wrending. It’s not gruesome, or dark. It’s ...
I came late to Unwind and its sequels. I’m not really the kind of person with the restraint it takes to wait until a whole series is out (and this one isn’t, quite) and then read it all in one sitting–I’m far too impatient and in need of good things to read! But for whatever reason, I was busy ...
PEOPLE. I’ve been thinking about what to write for this review of Champion for hours, now, and I am seriously sitting at my laptop, eyes bugged out huge, because, OMGOSH. I think so much just happened that it broke my brain.   Holy crap. This book is absolutely my most favorite of all the series-enders I’ve read in the past year. Looking ...
I’ve been finished with Allegiant for three or four days, now, and I still have no idea what to write. So…here are my jumbled thoughts? Roth is an exceptional writer. She’s one of the strongest recommendations for this series (and there are many), and considering that she got her start so relatively young, I cannot wait to see what ...
