Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book & Audiobook Review

Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner | Book & Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I was soooo excited when the last book of the Starbound series came out!  I mean THIS series really started my love for all things YA: These Broken Stars and This Shattered World blew me away and I expected to be blown away by the series finale. Didn’t you like the book at all? Don’t get me wrong, I actually liked the Their Fractured Light, I just wasn’t blown away by it.  It’s hard to admit that one of your favorite series didn’t blow you […]

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Disclaimer:  I listened to the audiobook way back in August so I am not 100% certain about most of the details, but I will review this to the best of my memory. Not another Snow White re-telling! I know many reviewers have compared Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis to Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles but I promise you, it isn’t!  Sure, it has the same themes as TLC but there is a marked difference. Tell me more! Obviously, Princess Snow is missing and she is […]

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Ok, I admit it, I have never heard of The Fifth Wave until I saw the trailer a couple of months ago.  If you know me, you would know that I am so into aliens.  In fact, one of my favorite shows is Ancient Aliens, but I digress.  Let’s just say that I am very fascinated by aliens. What is it about? The Fifth Wave is about an alien attack on Earth.  The attacks come in waves; the first wave: total blackout; […]

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Book & Audiobook Review

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Book & Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. I have to really honest about this book, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and admit that it took me a while to finish reading it.  And as much as I loved it, and was blown away by it, I still had a hard time getting into the book.  In fact, this is the first book that I read in this format because I thought, hey, I wouldn’t be interested in reading a book in email or chat form. What makes the book […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Winter by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS So The Lunar Chronicles has come to an end and I have bittersweet feelings about it.  I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end!  I mean, there are still loose ends to tie! The moment I finished listening to this book, I had book hangover and I couldn’t wait to talk to someone about it.  Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it.  Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]

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, […]

After the End by Amy Plum | Audiobook Review

After the End by Amy Plum | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS “If Miles couldn’t drive, he’d be a complete dead weight.” Juneau After the End, the first book in a series written by Amy Plum is about what happens after World War III in 1984.  Interesting, right?  Well, I was intrigued by the plot and Plum’s story did not disappoint. I was intrigued by the fact that this community thrived for about thirty years in the Alaskan wilderness without anyone finding about them.  Or, even without the other people in the settlement finding out about the real world. The heroine Juneau has grown up in a small commune at […]

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 […]
