Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

Giant freaking robot. Hell yeah! I love a good science fiction with pretty much any sub-genre. While this wasn’t anything that blew my mind, Sleeping Giants is still a good sci-fi political thriller. It does have a bit of a rough start and takes a little while to get going. The majority of the book […]

Ask Me How I Got Here by Christine Heppermann

Ask Me How I Got Here by Christine Heppermann

Gorgeous! I’m not one to seek out books written in verse. Actually, I’ll usually skip them. However, I couldn’t resist Ask Me How I Got Here after reading the description. I absolutely loved it! Unlike Christine Heppermann, I’m not great with words, so it’s hard to explain something so moving. It’s interesting how someone can […]

Return of the Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon

Finally! I was hoping for Gloria and Asher’s story as soon as they appeared in the first Second Chance book, so I’m a happy girl! Return of the Bad Boy did not disappoint. Oh boy, have these two gone round and round for a while now. Their story was perfect for the finale, because we […]

Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn

Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn

So freaking good! Ever since I read Quinn’s debut novel, I go into each one completely blind. I don’t even read the blurb, knowing nothing about them. All I do is see her name on the cover and dive-in, trusting I’m going to have a great experience. And I certainly did with Down with the […]

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

I’m excited to finally start the Mercy Thompson series! Moon Called was a fantastic introduction to this world and its vast set of marvelous characters. I’m 100% sold, and have no doubt I’ll eagerly stick with Mercy until the end. The first book or two in the urban fantasy genre have a tendency to be […]

The Raft by Fred Strydom

The Raft by Fred Strydom

Well, that was a trip! The Raft was so not what I was expecting. I mean, I’ve read a ton of books in the dystopian genre, but this was very different. In a good, thought-provoking way, for sure. Fluff, it is not. There’s a lot of wondering what the hell is going on in the […]
