Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

4 Stars, Reviews 2

It took me several weeks months to read This Savage Song because of college and homework and it’s like 400 pages long, but FINALLY I finished this book and then realized that the sequel doesn’t get released until June. UGH. I need to know how the story continues! I NEED to know what happens to Kate and August! LIKE NOW. Anyway… please ignore my impatience. Yeah. I was WAY off. It is about music, but it’s about monsters who use music to eat people’s souls…. Read more »

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

2 Stars, Reviews 8

Possible spoilers ahead… So, I keep seeing blurbs and descriptions advertising this book as having a “riveting dystopian world,” of being a “thrilling superhero story” (both on the back blurb of my paperback copy) and of being a “dystopian thriller” (on wikipedia)… however, that’s not really accurate. I mean, yeah the world is dystopian, and the main character can kill people by touching them can I please have this power, and mayyybeee that makes it a dystopian thriller. But in my opinion, it… Read more »

First of all, I apologize for any and all spoilers. It was unavoidable. Second, I also apologize for the excessive use of gifs in this post. I got excited. I couldn’t help myself. Third, Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! This is book was perfection and I don’t know what to do with my life now that I’ve finished it and there’s no more books (except prequels/etc its not the same *cries*)! Someone send help. Cress left us with so many loose ends, and I was genuinely concerned… Read more »

Review: Rush by Eve Silver

Review: Rush by Eve Silver

4 Stars, Reviews 2

plot Rush was… odd. But I totally fell in love with Miki and Jackson’s relationship, and ended up reading this book in one sitting. Miki Jones first gets pulled while trying to save a girl from being run over and wakes up in a field in the game. That’s when she meets her team, although some of the characters would choose to not use that word to describe them. They then try to hunt and kill aliens who are invading their… Read more »

Review: Silver by Chris Wooding

Review: Silver by Chris Wooding

3 Stars, Reviews 2

the plot When I read the summary, the first word that popped into my mind was “Zombies!” but I was a bit off with that assumption. There are zombie-like creatures, but they’re technically mechanical ‘monsters’ that are infected with a sort of virus. The action starts right away after introducing the characters and I felt like the action was TOO soon, and not very well-done. I had trouble believing what was happening, and while I know sci-fi isn’t supposed to… 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: The Only Boy by Jordan Locke

Review: The Only Boy by Jordan Locke

1 Stars, Reviews 6

I LOVE the cover of this book. It fits SO well and it’s gorgeous, but obviously a cover doesn’t make a book. The Only Boy by Jordan Locke had potential. SO MUCH potential. But it was lacking for several reasons. One: The writing was dull. It felt like there was no emotion, no expression from the characters. It was boring, in all honesty. It was pure curiosity that drove me forward with this story. Two: The characters were flat. They… 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 »

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

5 Stars, Reviews 4

I think that gif properly sums up my feelings for this book- for this series. Honestly, though, what’s not to love about The Lunar Chronicles? The characters are all unique and so much fun, the world is complex yet easy to understand and visualize, and the relationships are slow and natural and, for those of the romantic variety, swoon-worthy! If you haven’t read Cinder or Scarlet yet, I highly recommend that you do. Each book only gets better and adds… Read more »
