Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

Warcross by is the first in a sci-fi duology about the digital age of gaming. This isn’t the first book of its kind (Ready Player One people!), but it is unique in its own right and written specifically for the YA crowd. It asks some big questions. What happens when life is lived in virtual […]

Review: Trap by Scarlett Dawn

Review: Trap by Scarlett Dawn

It’s been a long two years since Trick released and left me hanging. Seeing that the series was finally continuing, I was so excited! Trap is the fifth book in , but it was so different and not at all what I’ve come to expect from . The storyline and pacing were rushed, and the […]

Review: True Born by L.E. Sterling

Review: True Born by L.E. Sterling

I had a hard time getting into True Born by . There is a lot of info-dump at the beginning as the author sets up the world, but once I got past I’d say the first third of the book I was hooked. True Born takes place in a dystopian society where a mysterious plague […]

Review: Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron

Review: Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron

Island of Exiles by is an addictive, high-stakes read. I found myself engrossed from page one. What makes it so addictive was the unique world-building and setting Cameron developed through the eyes of her main character Khya. It is unlike anything I’ve ever read! Khya is a warrior, put simply. She, like everyone else, puts […]

Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Review: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

I loved the Divergent¬†series by but that ending….ugh!!! It’s been nearly six years and I still can’t even with that ending. SO naturally I was cautious about reading Carve¬†the¬†Mark.¬†However I was pleasantly surprised. Despite a slow start, Carve¬†the¬†Mark was exactly what I wanted out of a YA dystopian scifi. Alternating points of view between two […]

Review: The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout

To say I was excited when I found out that was writing a spin-off series to Lux is an understatement. I was bouncing off my seat giddy!¬†The Darkest Star¬†doesn’t disappoint either. It delivered a unique tale that both honored the original series with some cameos and easter eggs AND continued the world-building. Set roughly five […]
