ARC Book Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

ARC Book Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Book Reviews | August 25, 2014

The Jewel was one of those typical cases for me where I can scream, “THE COVER MADE ME DO IT!” Seriously, much shiny, very want. But I knew before I got into this that it most likely would not end up going very well for me – for one thing, the book is blurbed in comparison to The […]

Audiobook Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Audiobook Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Book Reviews | August 17, 2014

At the beginning of the year, I made it one of my resolutions for 2014 to give audiobooks a shot. After discovering that Ready Player One – which I’d already heard plenty of GREAT things about – was narrated by Wil Freaking Wheaton, I decided this would be a great place for me to start. And it was. […]

ARC Book Review: Extraction by Stephanie Diaz

ARC Book Review: Extraction by Stephanie Diaz

Book Reviews | July 23, 2014

You know, I’m one of those people who has a love-hate affair with the dystopian genre. I love the possibilities, and the nostalgia about all the good series there have been in the past. So even when I’m disappointed, I keep coming back and giving it more chances. However, the more I read, the harder and harder it […]

Book Reviews | February 24, 2014

How on earth can one review this book? Seriously. How do you review when the feels are one billion but the story itself was a biiit meh? *sigh* I’m conflicted, but overall, I was very pleased with this series ending. The series will forever be dear to my heart, and Tahereh remains on my auto-buy list. I’m going […]

Top Ten Dystopias I Could/Couldn’t Handle

Uncategorized | January 28, 2014

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Today I thought I’d give my own little twist to this topic. Because – worlds I wouldn’t want to live in? That’s obviously going to be dystopias. But while there are some truly fearsome dystopias out there that I […]

ARC Book Review: Uninvited by Sophie Jordan

ARC Book Review: Uninvited by Sophie Jordan

Book Reviews | January 23, 2014

While it may seem like the young adult dystopian genre is being inundated, I still keep reading them, hoping to find something fresh. And Uninvited definitely delivered on that front. It was a chilling and thrilling world, a future I could see the realism of, and it even put a ship on my ship list. With stories like […]

Book Review: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Book Review: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Book Reviews | December 16, 2013

After I met Samantha Shannon back in September, I was stoked to read this book. I mean, she is so sweet. So sweet. And she’s (just barely) younger than me, got a seven book deal, and is being called the new J.K. Rowling (which is completely unfair and incorrect, but I’ve covered that already). So then we decided […]
