5 Things About Renegades by Marissa Meyer

5 Things About Renegades by Marissa Meyer

November 24, 2017 Review 12 ★★★★

Really interesting superpowers When you think of superheroes you think of things like the DC and Marvel heroes. People with powers like super strength, flying, indestructibility, and telikinesis. Those exist in the world of RENEGADES but there is also so much more! The ability to force people to sleep, disperse into butterflies, and make your drawing come to life! These are […]

3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

3 Things About The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

March 3, 2017 Review 26 ★★

When I saw Stephanie Meyer was writing another adult novel I was immediately interested. While I have mixed feelings about TWILIGHT, I actually really enjoyed THE HOST and this book seemed up a similar alley. However, my feelings for THE CHEMIST were closer to how I felt about TWILIGHT. Suspension of Disbelief While you could tell that Meyer put a […]

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

Review: The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

October 31, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

THE DIABOLIC is a fairly brutal YA science fiction novel. Sci fi is a genre that I have always struggled with, but I found THE DIABOLIC to be a fairly easy read to get into, despite overall mixed feelings. The World The world in this novel is pretty complex; there are different religions, classes of people, and government hierarchy. I […]

5 Things About A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

5 Things About A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

October 5, 2016 Review 14 ★★★

AUs everywhere! Before A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU, alternate universes were a concept I’d mostly stumbled across in fan fiction. And just like my experience with AUs in fan fiction, I absolutely loved seeing the different worlds in this. It’s so interesting how one single choice/ action can create such drastic changes while also keeping some things similar. My favourite world […]

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

March 16, 2016 Review 24 ★★

Novellas/Short stories and I have an interesting relationship. Unless they directly add something to the main plot of the series, I don’t really seek them out. With STARS ABOVE, I expected new content and the reveal of information I didn’t already know. Instead, I found that these stories only retold what we already knew, just adding more detail. “I will […]

5 Things About Winter by Marissa Meyer

5 Things About Winter by Marissa Meyer

February 20, 2016 Review 38 ★★★★½

A massive conclusion (literally) WINTER is the final book in The Lunar Chronicles which is one of my favourite sci fi series and at 823 pages, it truly is a massive conclusion. The entire series has been so much fun, but things were definitely stepped up in this finale. The characters had to face bigger challenges they’ve ever encountered so […]
