Super cute!

Babe in Boyland has been on my to-read forever, so I was thrilled when I finally got my hands on a copy. The cover is super adorable and definitely matches the tone of the book. What unfolds within its pages is a fun, quirky, and hilarious tale of one girl’s...

Love this world!

Jodi Meadows has created an utterly unique, fascinating, and captivating world in Incarnate. It’s magical, yet scientific, and I couldn’t help but be drawn into it. There are exactly 1 million souls which have been reborn into new bodies over the past 5,000 years. That is until Ana is born....

Amazing sequel!

Asunder is an amazing follow-up to the wonderful Incarnate! The world is easily my favorite thing about this series, as I’m sure I made very clear in my review of the first book. This time the plot demands more world building, so I was hooked from the very beginning! Ana...

Super amazing!

“There’s a strong fear of the supernatural now. Both mortal predators and prey seem to agree on listening to their primal fears and hiding until dawn.” It’s 6 weeks after the apocalypse struck Northern California, and 17 year old Penryn is struggling to take care of her...

Unique but a bit lacking.

“Other mother’s said, ‘Shh, it’s okay,’ and coaxed the tears away with a soft-serve cone. Mine said, ‘Come on, Danielle. You’re the girl with nine lives.’ ” (1% eARC) Dani never put much stock in her mother’s words until her twin, Jena, is diagnosed with leukemia and...

There's more to life than chocolate.

I only just liked All These Things I’ve Done, but I won an ARC of Because It Is My Blood, so I gave it a read. I was hoping for more Leo after the ending events of the first book, but again everything is narrowly focused on Anya. Nothing around...

The novelty wears off fast.

The world Zevin creates is a bit dark but entirely possible. Everyday things we take for granted, such as coffee, chocolate and paper, are illegal. Many other things are strictly rationed: water, candles, fruit. You even need government issued vouchers for ice cream! Not to mention, eight-year olds mug you...

Interesting.

The Academie takes place right after the French Revolution, and while I can’t comment on the historical accuracy, I can say that this was a very interesting story of an important time in France as seen through the eyes of three very different young woman. The story starts off a...

Good, but disappointing.

Well, that was certainly unexpected. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Shades of Earth, it’s that you can’t trust the government, the military, big corporations, or aliens. Not that I trusted any of these before reading it, except maybe the aliens. Anyway, I will start by saying that Shades...

An amazing sequel!

The epicness that is Across the Universe left me wanting more, more, MORE! A Million Suns definitely brings more, even if I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the first. In the very first chapter we’re given new information about the state of Godspeed. We left the first book...

Amazing and exciting!

A YA Sci-Fi that is both Dystopian and space Sci-Fi? Awesome! It took me way too long to finally give Across the Universe a read, but I’m so glad I did! After a slightly rocky start with the first two pages where I thought we were seeing Amy as a...

Better than the first!

I was worried that Everbound was going to suffer from Middle of a Trilogy syndrome, and that Nikki would never get close to saving Jack from the Tunnels, but my worries were completely unfounded. Everbound is much better than Everneath! The story kicks off right away, and we get to...
