There is something truly terrifying about an apocalypse setting that scares and fascinates me at the same time.  I think Wendy Higgins did a good job of building a truly scary world in Unknown.  I finished this book in two days.  I only put it down to sleep.  Even when I put the book down I still kept think about how frightening this book actually was.     Unknown starts out like any other contemporary love story.  A girl grows up with her brother and his best friend.  Then the brother’s best friend becomes her friend as well.  Of course,… Read more »

  I think this review is going to be short and sweet. I am going to try to keep spoilers out of it. I have a feeling this review is going to into the ramblings of a fangirl. I loved Winter!!! There I said it. I don’t know if the majority will agree with me but I loved Winter. It was a long epic journey that ended just the way I wanted it to.     I love fairytales and sci-fi/fantasy.   What is there not love about a series that is like Once Upon a Time meets Stars Wars?  When I… Read more »

I am just going to keep this review short and sweet because I loved this book so much it will just end up being one jumbled mess of fangirl emotions.   When I got approved to read Illuminae I was so excited. I had to read it right it away. I had seen on the all the five star ratings and the big push for the book at San Diego Comic Con. I wanted to see for myself what all the hype was about. Was this book about a girl and a boy that break up the day before and… Read more »

I ended up liking this book a lot. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went into this new Star Wars tale. It was highly fascinating to see the stories of Episodes 4-6 unfold through the eyes of some of the faceless soldiers that fought on both sides of the war. This is not some tragic Romeo and Juliet story but is a love a story. It is a story about love and honor and how far one will go to protect it. It is a story about doing the right thing and keeping your loyalty to your loved… Read more »

When I finished this book the first thought I had was a feeling of accomplishment. Why? I had a really really really hard time getting into this book at first. It started with five teenagers waking up in a place and having no idea of who they were there or who put them there in the first place. I felt just as confused, as a reader,  because the book kept jumping around from so many points of view and all of them told in third person point of view. I just found it hard to keep up with and at some points,… Read more »

I started reading this book a while back but for some reason I just could not get into it. I picked up the audiobook and I found that in the end I am now kind of hooked on this series now. The Replaced takes up where The Taking left off with Kyra’s dad missing and her boyfriend having been taking by the aliens. Now Kyra is on the run with Simon and a group of other taken they have met along the way. Most of the first book is Kyra and her pals running from evil government agents that want… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Under Different Stars by Amy A. Bartol

I started listening to this audiobook one day at work. I became so engrossed in the story that I literally could not put this book down. I came home and kept right on listening to this book instead of turning on the TV. For me, this book was so entrancing that I could not stop until I had listened to the very last sentence. Under Different Stars opens with Kricket working and living under the radar because she ran away from foster care. Then one day her life changes forever when men from another world start coming after her. They… Read more »

So, this is the book they used to shoehorn out Winter and make us wait for it. Still not sure that that was worth it. Sure, it’s a fancy little tidbit, but they didn’t have to postpone a book that was a) the end of a series and b) already finished in order to release it. After being teased year after year by George RR Martin, I’m always a little upset when books I actually want are pushed back for any reason, especially silly reasons. Dear publishers, just don’t. Don’t play with my feelings like that. I’d appreciate it. I… Read more »

I actually DNF’d this book once. I’ll admit it. I got about fifty pages in and absolutely nothing was making sense and I just didn’t have time for that sort of nonsense. I’m all for having books be mysterious, but this, despite the memory loss, made everyone just seem really dumb. Four hours into this audiobook, I considered DNF’ing again, but by that point I was almost halfway through. So, I decided to see it out to the end. I’m not sure if that was a good thing or not, honestly. Our main protagonist, Thomas is sent to a settling… Read more »

I will admit, I had a lot of problems with the first one, but it was essentially a train wreck that I read really quickly. Like bad tv and junker movies, it seems like I can’t stay away from the same in books. Essentially, this book falls in the junker category. Sure, it’s an awful lot of fun to read and exciting at times, but there’s really not any substance to it. I read Fire & Flood some time last year, and it was a plot hole ridden mess with a protagonist I hated. This time around, they fill in… Read more »
