Blog Tour: Book Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Blog Tour: Book Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Blog Tours, Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★½

One Line: Fan-freaking-tastic! Just as amazing as the first book! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Kaufman and Kristoff have blown me away yet again with Gemina. I loved every minute of this amazing book and this story just keeps getting better. Just like with Illuminae, you’ve got two main characters that come together for a common cause – to fight off the BeiTech bad guys. At first, I was… Read more »

Book Review: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: Daemon Black has my heart! In My Opinion: Add to cart! I’ve SO been waiting quite awhile to see the story between him and Katy unfold through his eyes. Oblivion was every bit as comical, sweet, rage-inducing, and heart-warming as any Lux fan would come to expect from someone like Daemon Black. I loved every minute of being inside Daemon’s head, particularly when it came to Katy. It… Read more »

Book Review: Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Book Review: Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★★

One Line: Utterly engrossing and unputdownable! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! As much as I loved the first book, the second book was just as amazing, if not slightly better. There is a lot more action, we delve deeper into the sci-fi, the lines of love and family get blurred in all kinds of way, and we visit plenty of unique and interesting dimensions. It’s been getting exceedingly harder… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review – Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Blog Tours, Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★½

One Line: I loved every minute of it! In My Opinion: Add to cart! It might throw some people off the way this story is told, through online conversations, emails, and private files, but I think this was exactly the kind of read I needed at the moment. It was enough to get the story across without it being overkill. The changes from IMs to emails to status reports, etc… Read more »

Book Review: The Remedy by Suzanne Young

Book Review: The Remedy by Suzanne Young

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

One Line: A slow starter, but when things get going it turns amazing! In My Opinion: Add to cart! It’s been way too long since I a book by Young and I’ve been meaning to for the longest. I’ve been a big fan of her writing since her first book and I don’t know why I never got around to checking out her new series. The synopsis for The Remedy… Read more »

Book Review: The Leveller by Julia Durango

Book Review: The Leveller by Julia Durango

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★½

One Line: Not as action-packed as I was hoping for. In My Opinion: Worth a try! I always get intrigued by a “virtual world” setting and I truly believe this might be in our future someday. A lot of the games I like to play focus on world-building, kind of like Sim City. I thought it was pretty cool that Durango had a character like Nixy who made a living… Read more »

One Line: So compellingly good, I couldn’t stop reading! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! What an amazing book! I was a fan of Megan’s already, so I knew I was going to enjoy this book, but I had no idea how compelling and addicted I would become. I honestly couldn’t stop reading and when I absolutely had to put it down, I kept thinking about it, eagerly waiting until… Read more »

Just from the premise alone, I knew I was going to like this book. Little did I know, I ended up loving it. Something about the characters, being inside their heads, along with Holly’s unique and captivating writing style, I was fully engrossed in this book from… Read more »

Book Review: Gabby Duran and the Unsittables by Elise Allen & Daryle Connors

Book Review: Gabby Duran and the Unsittables by Elise Allen & Daryle Connors

Middle Grade Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

One Line: Hilarious aliens and fun characters made for a very entertaining read. What I Loved: While reading this I had to completely let go of the fact that I was reading it as an adult. Being in the “kid mindset” is a must for a book like this because there’s a lot of stuff that’s pretty unbelievable, besides the fact that there are aliens in this book. Reading this… Read more »

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Book Review: City 1 by Gregg Rosenblum

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★½

One Line: It was nice seeing how this series ends, even if the book itself didn’t have much going on. What I Loved: I really liked getting to know Nick, Kevin, and Cass more. They each have a certain quality that sets them apart from everyone else and it was interesting seeing them handle this bot war. I enjoyed the fledgling romance between Cass and Farryn and I liked seeing… Read more »
