5 Things about The Undercurrent by Paula Weston

5 Things about The Undercurrent by Paula Weston

March 5, 2018 Review 2 ★★★½

#LoveOzYA Paula Weston is a #LoveOzYA author I’ve seen a lot of, but haven’t read before now. And I must say I really enjoyed THE UNDERCURRENT! Especially since it is set in a very near future Australia (only 20 or so years in the future), and features locations that I’ve visited myself. And not just big cities, I’m talking obscure […]

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

February 27, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

“No matter how careful I am, eventually I’ll make another misstep. I am weak. I am fragile. I am mortal.” Not what I expected at all I think from the synopsis and hype I was sort of expecting THE CRUEL PRINCE to be a mix of A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES and AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS. However, it definitely […]

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 5 ★★★

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: 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 […]

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

November 6, 2017 Review 10 ★★★★

Hold up. A Sarah J. Maas book I actually rated four stars and not five? Well, yes. But let me explain. First of all, you need to know TOWER OF DAWN runs parallel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. It is not a sequel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. So remove the latter from your memory for a moment and go back to […]
