*Spoiler Alert: This review reveals some info about the other books in the series!* Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve written on the blog, but Jessica has been doing a wonderful job of keeping it up and going and has been very inspiring! Today I want to do a review of the graphic novel Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer with art by Douglas Holgate. This is a new story based on The Lunar Chronicles series, and mainly focuses… Read more »

Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

5 Stars, Reviews 6

I considered not writing this review since Insurgent (and well, the entire Divergent series) has been so popular and everyone has read it. Or almost everyone. There are so many reviews for Insurgent, I could probably swim in them. But that doesn’t really matter to me anymore. I’m going to review it because I want to review it. So now that that’s been said, I’m going to write a spazzy, excited, gushing review of Insurgent. 😀 DUDE! I can’t believe I waited more than one… Read more »

Review: The Innocent Assassins by Pema Donyo

Review: The Innocent Assassins by Pema Donyo

4 Stars, Reviews 2

plot I was fully intrigued by the idea of teenage assassins, especially in such an organized setting that could easy be compared to a boarding school/workplace. It added an idea of institutionalized murder, which is equally intriguing as it is horrifying. Jane works for Covert Operatives, an organization that ‘rescues’ orphans off the street and gives them a home… the catch? They are trained as professional assassins carrying out the dirty work for greedy people across the world. Except, Lucy isn’t as… Read more »

Review: The Legacy by Melissa Delport *Blog Tour + Interview*

Review: The Legacy by Melissa Delport *Blog Tour + Interview*

5 Stars, Author Interview, Blog Tour, Reviews 3

Oh gosh! This book was AMAZING. It met all my expectations and more. I feel like I was in the perfect mood for a good dystopia when I started reading it, which makes it all the better, however I ended up having to put this book on pause to finish up Beowulf (ugh, homework) and I could not wait to return to Rebecca’s world. That, of course, resulted in me reading Beowulf in one night and then reading three more… Read more »

Review: Beowulf by Burton Raffel

Review: Beowulf by Burton Raffel

1 Stars, Reviews 6

Before Reading Beowulf I have to read this for my AP Lit summer homework and I really don’t want to read it. It’s just not something I can enjoy. Ugh! After Reading Beowulf I expected to hate this book, and I was right. It was a totally MISERABLE read. I could not wait to be finished with it. I dreaded starting this book and if it wasn’t required reading for my AP Lit class, I would have DNF’d it right… Read more »

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

5 Stars, Reviews 2

The 5th Wave was so good. I haven’t read an Alien book in so long. I’m pretty sure The Host was the last book I read with aliens, but I can’t be sure. I loved everything about this book! I’ve been a bit obsessed with books like this, with something taking over the world (aliens, zombies, monsters, etc) and this just made me even more obsessed! Cassie, Ben, Evan, Sammy, ah they were all so amazing. At first, I was… Read more »

**This review may contain spoilers!** I was so excited to read this book when I first heard of it on twitter, but of course, me being me, it took months before I ended up with  a copy (as a gift for Christmas from my mom), and even another month before I actually started reading it. Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations and the premise pretty quickly. First of all, the romance that is supposed to be the central plot… Read more »

Review: The Living by Matt de la Peña

Review: The Living by Matt de la Peña

4 Stars, Reviews 0

the plot I expected more action at the beginning, but instead The Living starts off in a contemporary setting. Shy, the main character, is an employee on a cruise ship, and while on his shift, comes across a rich business man, named Mr. Williamson, who ends up jumping over the side of the boat, committing suicide, only Shy tries to save him, but fails, and this is where the plot really starts off. Except, that’s not where the actions starts…. Read more »
