ARC Book Review: The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau

ARC Book Review: The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau

Book Reviews | May 26, 2013

The first words that come to mind having finished this book are: hot damn, what a page turner. To be honest, while I am a big dystopia fan, I was sort of losing my faith in the genre. It’s being inundated with bland stories with bad world building and cheap romance. A lot of the ones I was […]

ARC Book Review: Ink by Amanda Sun

Book Reviews | May 23, 2013

It is with a heavy heart that I sit down to write this review. You see, Ink was my most highly anticipated debut. In fact, it was one of my most highly anticipated 2013 releases. A book, set in Japan, about a fantasy world where ink drawings come to life? That sounded like everything I could ever want […]

ARC Book Review: Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton

Book Reviews | May 12, 2013

Some Quiet Place is an extremely imaginative and original debut novel by author Kelsey Sutton. The story is shrouded in mystery and takes some dark and creepy turns, which all in all make for a very memorable read. The concept of this novel… I just love it. Elizabeth doesn’t feel emotions, but she sees them – physical presences […]

ARC Book Review: Parallel by Lauren Miller

ARC Book Review: Parallel by Lauren Miller

Book Reviews | May 5, 2013

Parallel is an absorbing, touching, and heartfelt read that completely surprised me. It may have some issues that keep it from being perfect, but for me the enjoyment factor was through the roof. The main character, Abby, is an example of a flawed, sometimes dumb, sometimes fickle main character that works. I may have questioned her at times […]

ARC Book Review: September Girls by Bennett Madison

Book Reviews | April 26, 2013

No. No no no no no. No no. No. This book is one of the worst I have ever read. Hell, it may well be the worst. Save yourself the inevitable frustration and disappointment of reading this book. Please. Do yourself a favor. Let me tell you why. Cue my longest review ever. After only 15%, my gut […]

ARC Book Review: Transparent by Natalie Whipple

ARC Book Review: Transparent by Natalie Whipple

Book Reviews | April 21, 2013

Let me start by saying that the tagline “X-Men meets the Godfather” is cruelly misleading. Of course, we should know that with taglines by now, but they’re still deceptive. The inherent action and intrigue implied by that tagline is really only present in the first 10% and the last 10%. What do we have in the middle? A […]

ARC Book Review: MILA 2.0 by Debra Driza

Book Reviews | March 1, 2013

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 […]

ARC Book Review: Dualed by Elsie Chapman

ARC Book Review: Dualed by Elsie Chapman

Book Reviews | February 16, 2013

Dualed is a debut novel with an intriguing dystopian concept. Every person has an Alt – a genetically identical twin – and they must prove their worth to the community by eliminating that Alt before they turn 20. Only upon “completion” do the citizens finally get to live a peaceful life. That sounds epic, right? Sadly, I was […]
