  Don’t want to read the whole review? ย Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have no reason why I love reading about artificial intelligence and this book HAS one! Think YA Star Wars! Sure, the start was a little slow, but the story picked up speed as I got immersed into the world. Defy the Stars is about two unlikely heroes, an android named Abel and a teen soldier named Noemi. Noemi inadvertently rescues Abel from his prison where he has been stuck in for about thirty years. These two become allies as they try to stop an […]

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

MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review? ย Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I was soooo excited when the last book of the Starbound series came out! ย I mean THIS series really started my love for all things YA: These Broken Stars and This Shattered Worldย 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. ย 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? ย Click to jump to the Review At a Glance. Disclaimer: ย 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 comparedย Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewisย to Marissa Meyer’sย The Lunar Chronicles but I promise you, it isn’t! ย 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 […]

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. ย I guess this just stems out of me not wanting this series to ever end! ย 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. ย Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone who read the book and hubby still hasn;t finished reading it. ย Plus he is no fun with book discussions because he just grunts and says “ok” or “it’s good” so… Anyway, […]

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

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalleyย 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!ย  I really LOVED reading about Captain Lee Chase and Avon rebel Flynn Cormac!ย  Plus, imagine that – a kick ass female captain! Captain Lee Chase has been in the planet Avon for a while.ย  She has not been affected by the fury that seems to take […]

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Audiobook Review

MY THOUGHTS Let me just tell you that when I read Cinder, I hated Levana on sight (when I read her in the first book Cinder, I mean)!ย  She really felt like some weird, ugly crypt keeper-like Lunar with the veil concealing her face from the public, and even from us, the readers. So, when I heard that she was going to have her own story, I was excited!ย  This novella would be the answer to all the questions that had been on my mind.ย  Like:ย  Whatโ€™s with the f-ing veil? or Why do you insist on marrying Prince Kai […]

Across the Universe by Beth Revis | Book Review

Across the Universe by Beth Revis | Book Review

First off, I would like to say that I love the cover. This was one of the books from the bookstore that I had to stop and read the blurb just because of the cover. This book is also a good example of the cliche, “do not judge a book by it’s cover.”

That being said, I enjoyed the story. I thought it read like it was written for a younger YA audience, but what the heck, it was OK. It is a unique take of the genre Utopia/Dystopia. I hessitate to call it dystopia since the setting does not happen on Earth and the themes tend to lean toward Utopian.
