Review: The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

January 15, 2018 Review 2 ★★★★

Wow, this was a huge improvement from the romance-focused THE WINNER’S CURSE and the angst-ridden THE WINNER’S CRIME. I’m really impressed how everything came together to form an explosive conclusion. This review will be a short one because I don’t want to spoil anything. I actually only have two qualms with this book, and one was the beginning. It was […]

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

January 9, 2018 Review 3 ★★★

So I’ve been doing really good when it comes to continuing series instead of starting all the new pretty ones. Trust me when I say that’s a challenge. Anyways, after I finished this one I looked at my review for the first book in the series, WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER. Sadly, looking at my feelings for that book and […]

Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Empress by S.J. Kincaid

January 6, 2018 Review 4 ★★★

When I read THE DIABOLIC I was confident in saying that it really added something unique to the YA genre. THE EMPRESS, however, is on a whole new level. It was a pretty epic book, but it was a book that is going to inspire some mixed feelings, simply because everything you thought you knew will be tested. THE EMPRESS […]

5 Things About Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

5 Things About Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

January 3, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

I forgot to take notes Like the first novel, RETRIBUTION RAILS was very addictive. It is a bit slower pacing wise than VENGEANCE ROAD, but the plot is much more complicated and layered. Once I started I couldn’t stop. I was almost late for the train one day when I just HAD to finish the final 50 pages because I […]

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

December 24, 2017 Review 8 ★★★★

After really enjoying THE UNEXPECTED EVERYTHING (dogs) by Morgan Matson, I wanted to check out her other books. SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE had somewhat of a fun, interesting premise as well: Emily’s best friend has disappeared, but she left a list behind full of things to complete. As an introverted person I could definitely relate to Emily and her struggle […]

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

December 18, 2017 Review 10 ★★½

I’ll start off by saying that I really enjoyed THE WINNER’S CURSE, the first novel in this series. However, this installment, THE WINNER’S CRIME, feels very much like a filler book. In fact, I read it a few weeks ago and can barely tell you anything that happened in it. I’m definitely in the minority with this one, but I […]

Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

December 11, 2017 Review 6 ★★★

Full disclosure: I struggle with sci-fi novels. I’m not sure why, but even the best science fictions novels are hard for me to get through. So, keep that in mind when I talk about the pacing of this novel. This feels very much like a setup book. There is a ton of world building and explanation in the beginning, exploration […]
