Review: Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland and Michael Miller

Why Did I Read? Let’s just say I was looking forward to this book since I first heard it announced and marketed as Firefly meets Dune! I was so on board! My Thoughts: This was a really action packed and thrilling sci-fi ride! I can definitely see the parallels to Firefly and Dune. Our spaceship in question is the Kaitan and our main cast the crew of the Kaitan. I absolutely loved each member on board the Kaitan and all the crew relationships. Everyone is […]

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Why Did I Read? It sounds so magical and exciting! It sounded just like something I’d love. My Thoughts: Caraval is seriously one of the most hyped books of 2017. It was hyped last year at BEA and the hype only grew as more people read and raved about it. I really meant to get to this way earlier, it was one of my top books from BEA that I wanted! Anyway, I’m kind of conflicted […]

Review: The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Why Did I Read? I have been anticipating this since I read The Fixer last year! There were questions that needed to be answered! My Thoughts: (There will be no spoilers for The Long Game but may be a SLIGHT–very very slight– spoiler for The Fixer in my review!) I really enjoyed The Fixer, I thought it was a great political intrigue thriller and kept me glued to the pages. However, its sequel just plain blew it out of the water! […]

Audiobook Review: The Mystery of Hollow Places by Rebecca Podos

The Sound: I was not a fan of the narrator. There was this odd lilting tone that made it sound like the MC was super whiny all the time. During the voices for other characters, it was fine but since the book is in first person, all the inner dialogue and well, everything when other people weren’t talking, just GRATED on me. So… maybe I wouldn’t have disliked this book as much if it weren’t for […]

Blog Tour Review: Dirty Deeds by Megan Erickson

My Thoughts: I really love the Mechanics of Love series! Megan has written such an amazing group of characters. I love the Paytons and everyone in their family unit — even if they’re not related by blood, they’re family and it just touches my heart to see. In Dirty Deeds, we get Alex’s story. She is super guarded given her past but she’s been enveloped by all this love from the Paytons and their friends in the […]
