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: 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! […]

My Thoughts: Marissa Meyer is the queen of writing the most magnetic characters and the best friendships and relationships. I have missed these characters so so much and reading the short stories was so much fun! I read them in order and did NOT […]

Review: First & Then by Emma Mills

Why Did I Read? This book is pitched as Friday Night Lights meets Pride and Prejudice. Why, hello, two things I love! If you didn’t know, I have a Football Friday feature and also have an undying love of football as well as of Mr. Darcy. It’s a wonder I even waited this long to read this book! My Thoughts: I really, really loved this one, you guys! So Devon is your average high school senior […]

Audiobook Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

The Sound: I’ve mentioned last week in my series review of Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress how much I LOVE the narrator and that obviously has not changed. This audio book is the longest I’ve listened to. TWENTY-THREE AND A HALF HOURS. I loved every second of it and fell into such a book slump after this book because I not only missed the world and the characters but I missed their voices. Rebecca Soler is amazing. She captured each character perfectly […]
