Book Review: Seven Things Not to Do When Everyone’s Trying to Kill You

I received a free copy of this from the author in exchange for a fair, honest review. If you are looking for a quick, fun read, then I highly recommend reading Seven Things Not to Do When Everyone’s Trying to Kill You.  Bryant Adams is a goofy narrator who likes to break the fourth wall.Continue reading “Book Review: Seven Things Not to Do When Everyone’s Trying to Kill You”

Book Review: The Razor

I received a free copy of this through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. The Razor is both the title of the book and the setting. It’s a small strip of habitable land on an otherwise inhabitable planet: one side is firestorms and radiation, the other is ice and cold that willContinue reading “Book Review: The Razor”

Book Review: The Outlaw and the Upstart King

If I was a new reader with no attachment to Elizabeth, I would give this book five stars because it was beautifully written and clearly well researched. The plot was well executed. The world richly developed.

Book Review: Hiddensee

Hiddensee: A Tale of the Once and Future Nutcracker definitely gets five stars. I’ve been reading Gregory Maguire’s novels since I was in high school.  I picked up Wicked in a time when I was just starting rediscover a love of books that had been lost when I got “too old” for picture books. That feelingContinue reading “Book Review: Hiddensee”

Novella Review: The Lost Sisters

The Lost Sisters by Holly Black My rating: 4 of 5 stars I picked this up because I love Holly Black’s faerie stories, I was sick, too tired of looking at a screen to write more, but not willing to get lost in a novel that would take me away from my words for tooContinue reading “Novella Review: The Lost Sisters”

Book Review: Given To the Earth by Mindy McGinnis

Given To the Earth by Mindy McGinnis My rating: 4 of 5 stars Given to the Earth is a continuation of the events in Given to the Earth. I’ll refrain from describing the plot in this review because I’m not sure I can do so without spoilers or copying too much for the blurb. OnContinue reading “Book Review: Given To the Earth by Mindy McGinnis”

Book Review: ECHO Campaign

ECHO Campaign by Taylor Brooke My rating: 5 of 5 stars ECHO Campaign is the second installment in the Isolation Series. A twisty plot, beautiful prose, and a ton of tension made this book fly by. In the first book, Omen Operation, the characters were on the run. In Echo Campaign, they’re caught, adapting toContinue reading “Book Review: ECHO Campaign”

Book Review: Ruin of Stars

Ruin of Stars by Linsey Miller My rating: 5 of 5 stars I received a free electronic copy of Ruin of Stars, the sequel to Mask of Shadows, in exchange for an honest review. Mask of Shadows was good, but Ruin of Stars is still ten times better. The plot in Ruin of Stars wasContinue reading “Book Review: Ruin of Stars”

Book Review: Our Dark Stars by  Audrey Grey and Krystal Wade

I received a copy of “Our Dark Stars by  Audrey Grey and Krystal Wade on NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. A combination of the cover, the pitch “Firefly meets Sleeping Beauty” caught my attention, so I requested the book. I enjoyed reading it, though I don’t think it lived up toContinue reading “Book Review: Our Dark Stars by  Audrey Grey and Krystal Wade”

Book Review: Salt

Salt by Hannah Moskowitz My rating: 3 of 5 stars Salt is an odd little book. I love the characters, but the plot and the world-building left me feeling a little cheated. Indi is an orphan and a monster hunter, sailing with his older sister and two younger siblings, looking for the monster that killedContinue reading “Book Review: Salt”
