Equally Exciting and Terrifying // Arena by Holly Jennings

My Thoughts: Virtual reality is an up and coming technology, one that equally excites and terrifies me.  However, the thought of plugging into a world where reality and virtual reality are parallel, is even more terrifying. In most futuristic books where VR is a thing, the characters don’t feel pain, and things from the real world don’t transfer over into the virtual one. Yet in Arena, is does. i.e. the pain is real. Could […]

When the Final Book Disappoints // The Countdown by Kimberly Derting

My Thoughts: As a follower of the series from the beginning, I’ve been anticipating the final book in the series. I wanted to know EVERYTHING, even though this isn’t one of my favorite series out there. Surprising enough, I didn’t hear much about the publication of The Countdown. Never the less, I started immediately after receiving my copy for review. There were some details that I felt I missed or forgot. […]

A World Where Diseases are Punishment // Transferral by Kate Blair

My Thoughts: Immediately after seeing this book, I knew I had to get it. Think about it: the world where criminals are punished with diseases? I mean, definitely, a book I want to get my hands on! The entire concept, while intriguing, is rather dark. If you think of horrible criminals, murderers, rapists. etc then you think, “okay, I can get on board with this.” but petty crimes? It makes […]

Blog Tour | Limerence by Charlotte McConaghy (Review + #Giveaway)

Welcome to my stop on the Limerence blog tour! Today, I am reviewing book 2, Melancholy. I seriously love this series! My Thoughts: It’s been some time since I had read Fury, and honestly, I was nervous about heading into book two without a re-read. There was a lot that happened in Fury and I was hoping I would be able to remember the small details. Especially since Charlotte does such […]

YOU Convinced Me To Read…. Illuminae

Hype 1, Me 0. Illuminae caught so much hype last year – and my desire to read it went down the drain. Yes, I was excited at first. I loved the emails from the publisher with the small reveals, leading up to publication. But some time around BEA – I said NOPE and moved on. I mean, I didn’t even read reviews! Which is sad, on many levels. Plus, 599 […]

Burning Midnight by Will McIntosh

My thoughts: This is quite a fascinating and fun book. It’s full of adventure and diverse characters, and the last bit is so beyond creepy! In Burning Midnight, the world is highly focused on colored spheres. Ranging in color and size; they are measured in rarity based on their abilities. When paired, you can “burn” them and voila! You “absorb” the ability that is has. Better eyesight. Read faster. Sounds preeeeeeetty fascinating, right? […]

Review | The Clouded Sky by Megan Crewe

My Take: I really, really enjoyed the first book in the series, Earth & Sky, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on The Clouded Sky. The concept behind the series is quite fascinating, and I love learning more and more about both worlds and new characters. The Clouded Sky starts off right were we left at the end of Earth & Sky. Skylar and Win have joined the remaining rebels (and the […]

Review | The Unquiet by Mikaela Everett

My Take: There have many books that I have marked DNF (did not finish). And yet, there are many books that I wanted to not finish – but continued reading because I wanted something to be at the end of that long, dark tunnel. I wanted my gut to be right and not fail me so I held on tightly, almost suffocating, in hopes it would turn out truly amazing. Luckily, […]
