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 […]

5 Things about Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

5 Things about Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

December 12, 2015 Review 30 ★★★★½

Action packed conclusion. THEIR FRACTURED LIGHT sets a cracking pace right from page one that doesn’t let you go until the very end. This fast pace hit me at the perfect time and I loved all the action, plot twists, and suspense it brought with it. The two main characters being a con artist and hacker certainly helped keep my […]
