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, […]

Discussion Review | Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

One doesn’t just read (& review) Ten Thousand Skies Above You. This book, like it’s predecessor, is a journey. An experience. It opens up your mind to the possibility of other worlds and challenges your thoughts on right and wrong and what makes a person whole. What is destiny, even fate? It opens up a lot of different topics for discussion. Some on the lighter side and some with a lot more […]

Review | Dreamland by by Robert L. Anderson

My Take: Well, what an interestingly weird book. I have always been fascinated by the idea that there are other worlds out there. Parallel universes. One I have never thought of was a Dreamland — a land were all the things we dream go. It’s mind-boggling if you sit a REALLY think about it. Dea, is a dream walker. Using objects of other people, she slips into their dreams. What […]

Review | Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1) by Lauren DeStefano

Perfect Ruin has such an interesting premise. I mean, a floating city? H-Yes. BRING IT ON. Sadly, what I was hoping to be an amazing story turned out to be sub-par. Perfect Ruin has all the standard elements that any other dystopian out there has; oppressive government, heroine that questions WHAT IS LIFE and secrets beyond secrets beyond secrets. This isn’t to say that it’s BAD; on the contrary, it’s actually a […]

Review | A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1) by Claudia Gray

 You guys, THIS BOOK.     I hate to admit that I had some serious reservations going into this book. I mean, dimension travel? FREAKIN AWESOME… my brain hurts already. I attempted to read another book similar to this one and after reading the same 50 pages like, 10 times, I gave up. However, I love Claudia Gray’s Evernight series, so I had to give this one a chance. I want […]

Review ~ (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn

What.Even? This book is weird. A good weird…. But weird nonetheless. I was beyond excited to start this. I can’t tell you enough how much hope I had that this book would blow me away. Let me tell you, nothing could have prepared me for it. NOTHING. In Gardnerville, the residents live long, health lives. But. There is a price to pay. Every four years, a teen loses themselves and basically […]

ARC Review ~ After the End (After the End #1) by Amy Plum

The Revenants series is one of my favorites, so when I saw that Amy Plum had a new book coming out, I had to have it. She is such an amazing writer; bringing us fresh and unique storylines and worlds that I love to sink into. And After the End did not disappoint. Living in isolation in Alaska, Juneau and her clan live a simple yet fulfilling life, in the aftermath […]

Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Trilogy #3) by Wendy Higgins

This is probably one of the hardest reviews to write. Which sucks because I was excited for this book. There were some THINGS that just did NOT sit right with me personally, and it’s taking everything in me not to vent about it. Oh, I’ll mention it though. Let’s be real here, I don’t have that much to say about the ending to this Trilogy. I don’t know if this […]

ARC Review~ The Taking (The Taking #1) by Kimberly Derting

I am a huge Kimberly Derting fan. I loved her Body Finder series and when I saw The Taking on Edelweiss, I immediately downloaded it. One thing I have come to love about Kimberly’s writing is how engaging it is. Her books are always fun and original, and the fact that two of her three series take place where I grew up is a small bonus. The Taking, while fun […]
