REVIEW | The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

REVIEW | The Infinite Sea by..

Review “When you look death in the eye and death blinks first, nothing seems impossible.” – Rick Yancey I loved The 5th Wave a lot. With that being said, I went into this novel hoping to love it as much as I loved the first one. I didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it, I just didn’t feel the same way about the second novel as I did the first. This novel had a few flaws and the atmosphere of the story did not feel the same as the first. That could also be because of the giant cliffhanger […]

REVIEW | The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

REVIEW | The 5th Wave by Ric..

Review “Some things you can never leave behind. They don’t belong to the past. They belong to you.” –Rick Yancey This was a novel that I picked up on a whim in the Los Angeles International Airport on my way to my college freshman orientation. My carry on was already stuffed full of books, yet I felt like I couldn’t leave a copy of this novel behind. Something about it called to me. Science fiction isn’t normally something I read, especially not around the time I picked up this novel. It really impressed me. I loved the idea of an […]

REVIEW | An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

REVIEW | An Ember in the Ash..

Review “You are an ember in the ashes. You will spark and burn, ravage and destroy. You cannot change it. You cannot stop it.” – Sabaa Tahir I found this novel while wandering through Barnes and Noble one night shortly after it was released. On a whim, I picked it up, purchased it, and brought it home. I’m so glad I did. This novel was easily one of the most anticipated novels of 2015 for most of the YA community. I did not realize the hype that surrounded the book until sitting down to write this review. So many bloggers, […]

CORVISIERO BLOGGERS MARCH: ARC REVIEW | Born to Die by Winter Austin

CORVISIERO BLOGGERS MARCH: A..

Review Thank you to Corvisiero Literary Agency for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.  I was so happy when I found out that this second novel in the McIntire County series focused on Nic’s sister Cassy! Since reading the first novel I have wanted to learn more about the mysterious sister that showed up out of the blue to help Nic solve the case she was currently working on. This book fast forwards into the future where Nic is retired from her work and she and Con are married with a kid. Cassy is the […]

REVIEW | Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

REVIEW | Mockingjay by Suzan..

Review “It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.” – Suzanne Collins This conclusion novel to The Hunger Games series was incredible. I could not have asked for a better way to tie everything together and end the series. Regardless of the fact that Katniss wants nothing to do with the rebellion that is happening, she has become the face of it: the Mockingjay. The only thing that’s changed is the fact that the people controlling her are supposed to be the good guys. Other than that they act just like […]

REVIEW | Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

REVIEW | Catching Fire by Su..

Review “I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now and live in it forever.” –Suzanne Collins This second novel in The Hunger Games series feels like the glue that holds the first and third novels together. The development of both the story and the characters was almost perfect. There was quite a bit of review of what happened in the first book, but I appreciated this, especially since I read so much and can forget details at times. This second novel was intense. The emotions, feelings, actions, etc. were heightened. And It did not disappoint. I mean, […]

REVIEW | The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

REVIEW | The Hunger Games by..

Review “You don’t forget the face of the person who was your last hope.” -Suzanne Collins I think by now I’ve read this book five or six times. I found this book shortly after I got my first e-reader. I didn’t realize how big the hype around this book or this series was going to be at the time. The Hunger Games is what started my love for dystopian novels. I’ve never read anything like this novel before; at least not at the time I first read it. The concept of kids having to fight and kill each other to […]

SST March: ARC REVIEW | Where You’ll Find Me by Natasha Friend

SST March: ARC REVIEW | Wher..

  Thank you to Nori from ReadWriteLove28/the Sunday Street Team, Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, NetGalley for providing me with an ARC for an honest review. I actually didn’t realize that this was a middle grade novel when I started reading it, but hey, no one is ever to old to read anything. This story is cute, adorable and fantastic. Yes, I realize that two of those words are basically the same but this novel is both. Anna is a young girl in high school who has a mom with bipolar two who tried to kill herself. As a result, she is sent […]

REVIEW | Atonement by Winter Austin

REVIEW | Atonement by Winter..

Review I am participating in a blog tour for the second novel in the McIntire County series next week and even thought I’ve been told that one does not necessarily need to read the first novel to understand the second, I felt that it would be best if I did. I have found that going into a novel not knowing much has worked out in my favor lately. I really enjoyed this mystery novel. The storyline was suspenseful and kept me on the edge the entire time. I was a little disappointed that I was able to figure out who […]
