Book Review: Wait for You by J. Lynn

Book Review: Wait for You by J. Lynn

When this book first came out in February, it had an amazing amount of hype. Praise was thrown around everywhere, this book was apparently just amazing, and one of the best things the New Adult genre had to offer. Soon afterwards it was picked up by HarperCollins to be published for real. All that buzz, all that hype, and the fact that I love Jennifer’s Lux series, meant I had to read this one at some point. Ultimately, however, I’m not too impressed. It was good but not great, and I’ll probably forget about it before too long. This was my first foray into the New […]

ARC Book Review: Taken by Erin Bowman

ARC Book Review: Taken by Erin Bowman

Taken can best be described as The Hunger Games meets The Maze Runner. I know it’s typical to compare any dystopian novel to The Hunger Games, but reading this one really gave me the same kind of vibe (maybe not so much as the first book, but the overall series for sure). Well, I obviously love The Hunger Games, yet I eventually gave up on The Maze Runner (the series). Aptly, my feelings for Taken lie somewhere in the middle. The plot is Taken‘s saving grace. Super intriguing. And action-packed. Most of the novel consists of a pattern of action-revelations-twist. It may have been a […]

ARC Book Review: MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza

ARC Book Review: MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza

MILA 2.0 is an interesting, thrilling debut great for science fiction fans craving an action-packed adventure. Ultimately, however, it misses the kind of spark that will have me coming back for more. So it’s no big secret that I love science fiction. Though the setting was not as futuristic or advanced as I may have thought before reading it—in fact, I think the setting is actually more present day than anything—having an android as a main character was a refreshing change of pace. I loved the integration of Mila’s android aspects into the novel–the descriptions of her defense systems, information processing, etc. It’s exactly the […]

ARC Book Review: Asunder by Jodi Meadows

ARC Book Review: Asunder by Jodi Meadows

Man, this is only my second ever ARC review and just like the last one, I can’t rave about it. I really wish I could, but my conscience says I can’t. Ultimately my conclusion about this one is that it suffers, in my eyes, from middle book syndrome. I liked Incarnate! I liked it a lot. It was light, but that fit the mood I was in, and the concept was great. The romance was nice. The second book obviously couldn’t stay so light forever. I mean, the mystery involved in the process of reincarnation and the creepy Janan meant there had to be a […]
