Biome by Ryan Galloway

Biome by Ryan Galloway

  I adore watching sci-fi movies especially anything to do with the colonization of space so when I read the blurb for Biome, it reminded me of my obsession not too long ago with YA dystopian/science fiction and I thought it would be fun to go back and revisit those days and Biome certainly fit the bill. Set in a colony on Mars, Biome follows the exploits of teenage cadets, […]

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

My Thoughts: Having not read Jennifer’s debut novel, which I plan to remedy soon by the way, I had no idea what to expect heading into Holding Up the Universe. Which in part, I feel is a small blessing. Sometimes, an author’s work just needs to be experienced for the first time without bias of their previous novels, and I feel Holding up the Universe was that book for me. Holding Up […]

Praise for Jennifer McQuiston and THE PERKS OF LOVING A SCOUNDREL: “McQuiston’s third Seduction Diaries novel is to be commended for its complex and unusual plot and for featuring characters the reader comes to care for.

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

My Thoughts: I’ve been in a rut when it comes to Fantasy novels lately – simply because I just haven’t been reading many these days. I had pretty high expectations heading into A Shadow Bright and Burning, and I’m happy to say it didn’t disappoint. A mix of magical fantasy, political intrigue and monsters in Victorian London, this book had a lot going for it. There’s an interesting magic caste; with Witches, Sorcerers and […]
