Book Review: Never Say Never..

Book Review: Never Say Never by Justine Manzano

Again, I’m not really a huge romance fan. Yes, I like the genre, I just tend to read other genres before I read romance. I’m really not a big fan of “YA Romance” – for some reason I just don’t care much for it. But Never Say Never? Yeah, I’m definitely a fan of this […]

Violet City by Page Morgan

Violet City by Page Morgan

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book. I’d read the description, but still didn’t know exactly what to expect. Violet City is an alien invasion story and a romance all in one. You’d think the combination wouldn’t work, but it does, it really does. I loved the characters – well, the […]

Atropos by John Japuntich

Atropos by John Japuntich

I chose this book through Reedsy Discovery based solely on the description. I loved the thought of a viral component to gaining immortality as well as becoming infertile. I was curious to see how the world would react to something like that. I wasn’t disappointed. The Virus So what we know about the virus in […]

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

I’m going to admit, I was a bit confused when this book first started. I didn’t realize there was a time gap because I hadn’t read the blurb. I’d figured they’d have immediately started trying to salvage Endura, but clearly not. I’m going to admit this right now, I can’t stand Goddard. He’s egotistical, he’s […]

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterm..

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman

SPOILER ALERT: There are a couple of spoilers given in this review. I apologize, but I found it very hard to talk about the book without giving anything away. If you’re looking for a second novel in a trilogy or series to frustrate the crap out of you, this one will do nicely. I’m not […]

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

When this was chosen as the book for the Barnes & Noble YA Book Club for December, I was a bit disappointed. Up until December, all of the books had been new releases, so it didn’t make sense to me for them to choose Scythe. Then I figured maybe they’d do all three from December […]

The Testaments by Margaret A..

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

If you want to see inflammatory reviews, just go look at the reviews for The Testaments on Goodreads. Several people have panned the book majorly, stating that the book wasn’t necessary. I’m here to tell you that while those people might feel The Handmaid’s Tale was fine as it was, it really wasn’t. What those […]

Witches Protection Program b..

Witches Protection Program by Michael Phillip Cash

It took me a long time to even start this book. I think I added it to my NetGalley queue in 2015, but I didn’t start it until the other day. I’m not sure why it took me so long, but it did. I have to say, Witches Protection Program isn’t a horrible book. It’s […]

Aurora Rising by Jay Kristof..

Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

When Aurora Rising first came out, I wasn’t planning to read it. I’ve had a lot of trouble getting into the Illuminae series and thought this might be the same way, since it is from the same authors. Boy am I glad I decided to give it a try. The characters in this book are […]

Wilder Girls by Rory Power

Wilder Girls by Rory Power

When I saw the cover to this book, I was intrigued. It’s the August book for the Barnes & Noble YA Book Club and I was anxious to see what the book was about. I can’t say the story was terrible, because it wasn’t. But there was no feeling, no emotion between the characters. Reese, […]

Starve Vol. 1 by Brian Wood,..

Starve Vol. 1 by Brian Wood, Daniel Zezelj, Dave Stewart

Starve was, in a word, amazing. I was absolutely captivated, only breaking when I need to blink my eyes away from my screen for a few seconds. I didn’t want it to end and was sad when it did. What intrigued me was the fact that the graphic novel was based around a cooking show. […]

Southern Cross Volume 1 by B..

Southern Cross Volume 1 by Becky Cloonan, Andy Belanger, Lee Loughridge, Serge LaPointe

Ok, here goes. I am not usually a comics/graphic novel person. Probably because I’m not big on pictures in my books. I literally dislike graphics, pictures, graphs, charts, etc., in my books when I’m reading. I’d rather have the information with nothing breaking it up other than maybe different colored/sized headlines. I have to say, […]
