Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

Reboot by Amy Tintera | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Reboot – a different kind of zombie!” While I was browsing for books to read, I came across Reboot by Amy Tintera.  Since I’m not that active in the YA book community, I hadn’t heard of anything about this book.  So I came into this book knowing nothing about it, apart from the blurb. I was blown away by this book.  It’s because I personally haven’t read anything like this before.  Reboot is a YA dystopian novel about people dying and then coming back to life (rebooting) as super humans.  These people, they call them Reboots, are stronger, […]

Forbidden by Jess Michaels | Book Review

Forbidden by Jess Michaels | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   MY THOUGHTS Unrequited love is probably one of my favorite romance themes so I was very excited to read the first book in Jess Michaels’ The Wicked Woodley’s series. This did not disappoint. As I’ve said before, this is a story of unrequited love between the classes, which makes the story all the more exciting! Lady Audrey has been in love with her brother’s best friend, now steward […]

Renegade by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

Renegade by Debra Driza | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “Mila started out to be someone who was TSTL but all that changed halfway through the book… I shouldn’t love this.. but I do!”   That was my post when I finished reading Renegade.  This is the second book in the Mila 2.0 series written by Debra Driza about a female android/military weapon who is so advanced that she feels and acts human.  When I read Mila 2.0, I was blown away by the uniqueness of the story and the female bad-assery but I was a little bit disappointed by Renegade…initially.  When I say initially, I mean that I really didn’t like Mila […]

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd | Book Review

A Cold Legacy by Megan Shepherd | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS “A fantastic end to an awesome series” A Cold Legacy is the last book (sigh* and sad face) in The Madman’s Daughter series by Megan Shepherd and is a classic retelling of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (I have to type is like that because it does not sound as good if written the other way LOL). I have a lot of bitter-sweet memories about this book.  I HATE saying goodbye to all the interesting and unique characters from the series.  I also feel like I grew with these characters; like I really invested a lot of my time on them […]

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Re-read Book Review

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Re-read Book Review

MY THOUGHTS TIMES READ I have read this multiple times in the last 6 years. WHEN I FIRST READ I read this in paperback (I have a copy back in the Philippines) around 2008 or 2009. ORIGINAL REVIEW Read my first review here (this is also a re-read review) WHAT I REMEMBER I remember a lady bargaining her virtue to the financier Rafe Pendragon and the story was (and still is) sizzling.  I have also read multiple books by Tracy Anne Warren that mention Rafe Pendragon as the investor that helped a few heroes in Warren’s other books become rich (see Wicked Delights […]

Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

Legend by Marie Lu | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “A surprising read!” I really didn’t have any expectations when I started reading this book.  In fact, I thought it was going to be another Divergent/Hunger Games dystopia book and thought it would be too cookie-cutter for my taste.  BUT I was really surprised that I enjoyed it!  Sure, there were a few flaws that made me rate it 4 stars but….. Day! Legend is really full of kickass, badass, fighter FEMALES!  In this book alone, 3 were prominent fighters.  Not to mention that the heroine, June IS a freaking child fighting prodigy!  At this point, Legend diverted from […]

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book Review

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. MY THOUGHTS “Hands down, one of the best books I’ve read this year!” This Shattered World is another story that blew me away!  I really LOVED reading about Captain Lee Chase and Avon rebel Flynn Cormac!  Plus, imagine that – a kick ass female captain! Captain Lee Chase has been in the planet Avon for a while.  She has not been affected by the fury that seems to take […]
