Book Review: Torn (A Wicked Saga) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“I was not alone in this. I was only a little torn, but not broken.” Back in 2015 I reviewed Wicked, and while I enjoyed it I thought it was a bit predictable. Torn has surpassed Wicked in every way. Not only are the characters better developed, but I became really invested in Ivy’s situation. Plus, her relationship with Ren was a […]

Book Review: The Midnight Star (The Young Elites) by Marie Lu

Book Review: The Midnight Star (The Young Elites) by Marie Lu

“You cannot harden your heart to the future just because of your past. You cannot use cruelty against yourself to justify cruelty to others.” The Midnight Star was fantastic! In fact I enjoyed it even more then The Rose Society. Adelina is now queen, but has lost the one person who meant the most to […]

Book Review: Anybody’s Daughter (An Angela Evans Novel) by Pamela Samuels Young

Last month my book club decided to read a thriller for November, and Pamela Samuels Young’s Anybody’s Daughter was picked to be the book of the month. I had never read anything by this author before, but was intrigued to learn she’s a lawyer in Los Angeles. Anybody’s Daughter is a tough story to read as it’s about sex trafficking […]

Book Review: The Rule of Thoughts (The Mortality Doctrine) by James Dashner

“Everything he knew was a result of artificial intelligence. Manufactured data and memories. Programmed technology. A created life.” The Rule of Thoughts is the second novel in James Dashner’s The Mortality Doctrine series. The story picks up right where the first book ended. Michael has figured out the mystery of the VirtNet,and Kaine’s masterplan. Now Michael has a […]

Book Review: The Eye of Minds (The Mortality Doctrine) by James Dashner

Book Review: The Eye of Minds (The Mortality Doctrine) by James Dashner

“Who knows the true definition of real?” I’ve had this series on my TBR list for years. Ever since I read Dashner’s The Maze Runner series. When I caught this first two books on sale for less than $2, I just knew I’d begin it immediately. But I didn’t. Now all this time later I’ve finally decided […]

Book Review: Gemina (The Illuminae Files) by Marie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina is the second book in The Illuminae Files, and is just as good (maybe better) than the first novel. In this story we are aboard the Heimdall with two new characters, Nik Malikov and Hanna Donnelly, as they are hijacked by mercenaries for BeiTech as part of the coverup from the first novel. Meanwhile, Katy and Ezra […]

Book Review: The Rose Society (The Young Elites) Marie Lu

Book Review: The Rose Society (The Young Elites) Marie Lu

Review I’m trying something new this review as I’ve waited too long, I think, to write my review. The Rose Society is the second book in Marie Lu’s The Young Elites series, and picks up not long after the first novel. Adelina and her sister have fled Kenettra in the hopes of finding other Young Elites to build an […]
