The Dog Runner by Bren MacDibble

I absolutely loved this book. A climate dystopian, this book is more Middle Grade than YA, but I’m reviewing it anyway. I read this book a few months ago after my darling little cat passed away, and I needed to read something with a pet relationship to help me process my grief. This book is […]

The Virtue of Sin by Shannon Schuren

I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into with this book. I think I was expecting a bit of a dystopian – and it still kind of is, since it takes place inside a secluded community, which is why I have indicated that I think the genre can also be considered dystopian. But it’s […]

Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely

I borrowed this audiobook from my library, and it took me a while to do so because from the cover, title, and blurb (which I probably didn’t read all the way through or comprehend when it said Second Civil War), I was under the impression this was a genuine historical fiction book about a Wild […]

The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline

There’s not a lot for me to say about this book for two reasons: One is that I DNF’d it at 35%, and two, I DNF’d it at 35% because NOTHING HAPPENED. I normally hate saying that nothing happened in a book because something always does, but seriously, all that had happened one entire third […]

Access Restricted (Word$ #2)

I’m really sad this is over. I can’t believe how much I fell in love with this world and Speth and all the characters and just everything. I mean, it’s horrific. It’s awful. But I was just wondering yesterday if it was weird that we pay for phone calls, we pay to send letters to […]

All Rights Reserved (Word$ #1) by Gregory Scott Katsoulis

I don’t remember the last time I read a dystopian and thought from page one, “This is where we are heading, this is totally plausible.” The basic premise in All Rights Reserved is that in the future, copyright is used as a weapon, everyone has to pay the rights holders to use words and gestures, […]

DNF: Tell The Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

DNF: Tell The Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

I’m not usually one to say a character is ever outright stupid, but Lucie must be the stupidest of any heroine I’ve ever read, and that includes Bella ‘my life revolves around a vampire who wants to kill me’ Swan and Nora ‘sexual assault is sexy’ Grey. There’s heat of the moment act-first-think-later bad decisions, […]

Book Review: Unwanted by Amanda Holohan

Book Review: Unwanted by Amanda Holohan

Once upon a time there was a badass warrior who had been trained her whole life to protect her walled city from outside invaders. She passed her test and was about to graduate when she did something really really stupid that caught the attention of the rebels. Or course, this made her super special, and […]

Book Review: Spark Rising by Kate Corcino

Book Review: Spark Rising by Kate Corcino

DNF at 33% Unfortunately while the writing is technically competent and the world-building is phenomenal, I’ve been attempting to read this quite intense and heavy tome for over a month now and I have absolutely no desire to finish. I find myself dreading going back to this book. While the concept is quite intriguing, I […]
