Sanctuary by Caryn Lix

This literally feels like Twilight AU fanfiction, albeit one that is a hundred times better than the other famous Twilight AU fanfiction. Even pointing out that abomination makes me feel dirty, like I am sullying this review, since this particular Twilight-esque book was vastly superior in every way, unless you’re into rape fantasies; and in […]

Honor Bound (The Honors #2) by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I really enjoyed this sequel, and it was worth the wait for my library to get it in audio. Honor Bound takes off where Honor Among Thieves left us, with Nadim and Typhon both injured after their epic battle with the Phage and desperately needing medical attention and defences against the parasitical scourge. The Leviathans […]

Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre

I approached this audiobook with trepidation since I have never been interested in reading books from either Rachel Caine or Ann Aguirre, and I’m generally not a massive fan of dual-author books either, for a number of reasons. However, I do like sci-fi and I am willing to take chances because I could always DNF […]

The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber

So Mary Weber is a very hit-or-miss author for me. Storm Siren = Hit. Siren’s Fury = Miss. Siren’s Song = Hit. To Best The Boys = Hit. Mary Weber is the only author in the history of my whole reading career (that’s 30+ years!) where I DNF’d a sequel then went on to read […]

Starglass by Phoebe North

Despite the fact that the plot didn’t even kick in until well after the halfway mark, the book… wasn’t bad? Like, I enjoyed Terra’s everyday life in the spaceship. What I didn’t like was the blurb promising me: “In this futuristic, outer space thriller, Terra has to decide between supporting the rebellion she believes in–and […]

Navigating the Stars by Maria V Snyder

Although I prefer to read fantasy these days, sci-fi was actually my first love (please don’t tell my fantasy books). I’ve read and loved almost all of Snyder’s books, including her original sci-fi Inside Out, so I was pretty keen to dive into this one, especially since it was starting with a younger, mouthier heroine […]

The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas

My friend Figgy was making status updates about this book, and despite it not being YA, I immediately felt like I had to read it. Luckily for me, it was available immediately to me on Netgalley (getting it onto a reading device was a whole other drama because I normally read mobi files and this […]

Zenith (The Androma Saga #1) doesn’t live up to its name

2.5 stars but leaning more towards 2. I don’t know how to spell anyone’s name because I listened to the audiobook. Zenith noun the time at which something is most powerful or successful. in astronomy, the point in the sky or celestial sphere directly above an observer. OK honestly?? I can understand why a lot […]
