Weekend Reads #97 – Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

Weekend Reads #97 – Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

September 9, 2017 Reviews 1

Happy Saturday y’all! Earlier this week I started reading a new-to-me series and wound up binging the entire thing in three days. Yep, 1200 pages in three days. It was worth the no sleep 😀 I love a good sci-fi dystopia and is just that. There’s a little bit of everything in the book as well: time travel, psychic abilities, romance, and of course rebellion. I couldn’t sit them down! I highly recommend that if you enjoy sci-fi, you grab a copy of this series and prepare to binge! Please note: The following reviews are in order of book release….

Review: Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

Review: Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

September 8, 2017 Reviews 2

Well….I finished the book and I’m still not really sure why I bothered. Mask of Shadows by was what I hoped would be a fantastic new YA fantasy series, but it fell prey to so many tropes that I’ve seen too many times. It’s like The Hunger Games and Throne of Glass had a baby…Mask of Shadows would be the product. Y’all it didn’t completely suck, but it wasn’t a great read, at least not for me. Sallot Leon, oh Sal. Sal is the gender-fluid main character. I stress the gender-fluid part because it the character beats it death during the course of the book. I’m not… Read more »

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

September 7, 2017 Reviews 3

I struggled to finish The Last One by . I wanted to like it. I really did. The premise sounded so promising. Reality TV mixed with true life apocalypse? What’s real vs what’s done for TV? I was all in. But the book is nothing like I thought it would be. First off the blurb is a bit misleading. “Widespread destruction” needs to be replaced with “World-wide pandemic.” In the opening chapters we learn that Zoo is awakening after being really sick. She’s disoriented and trying to figure out how much time has passed and how to get to her next challenge…. Read more »

Happy Wednesday! This week I’m excitedly waiting on Renegades by . I love YA sci-fi, but when you add in superheroes, vigilantes, and villains to the mix, I’m ALL IN!!!! The cover is stunning and the blurb has me hooked. We need more books… Read more »

TTT #120 – Books I Struggled to Finish

September 5, 2017 Features 10

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “books you had a hard time with.” This summer I’ve struggled with several books. There were a few I had to force myself to read and even a couple I didn’t finish. I don’t know if it was me being in a… Read more »

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

I have no words for Empire of Storms by . No, that’s not true. I have a lot of words for this book, but none are very flattering. I love the series! It is one of my favorite high fantasies. So I was excited that I finally got the chance to read the next installment. Now I’m wondering what the hell I just read. Everything I love about the series is still there. I love the multiple character points of view and I love the overall series arc. BUT there are so many things I disliked. First off, I felt… Read more »

Review: The Irish Getaway by Siobhan Davis

Review: The Irish Getaway by Siobhan Davis

August 31, 2017 Reviews 0

I’m not really sure how I feel about The Irish Getaway by . I was kind of excited to read it even though I’ve made no secret about my dislike for the two main characters. I thought a story set in the author’s country would be cool, but really there isn’t much about Ireland in this short story. It’s more about the party scene which seems shadier and more dangerous than the American party scene (still trying to figure that one out). Anyways….The Irish Getaway is more of a bridge, setting up the standalone novels for the rest of the Kennedy Boys, rather… Read more »
