Bullet Reviews Ft. Control Freakz, Dare Mighty Things, & American Panda

Title Template

Hello everyone! Today I have some bullet (mini) reviews over three vastly different books. I’ll start with Control Freakz by Michael Evans, Dare Mighty Things by Heather Kaczynski, then American Panda by Gloria Chao. Control Freakz was a slightly disappointing dystopian book written by a high school student. Dare Mighty Things was an interesting sci-fi read full of strange twists, and American Panda was a contemporary romance about a super smart Taiwanese American! It has been kind of an “eh” reading month for me, but maybe you can find something new to add to your TBR! Continue reading

6 Reasons You Should Check Out the Lunar Chronicles (AKA Why TLC is AMAZING!)

img_1989

Hello, hello! It’s been a few days since my last post (for some reason I’m out of ideas…) but I started this one quite a while ago and thought now would be a great time to finish it. If you are a new reader, you may not know that The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer are my absolute favorite books ever. (If you’ve read ANY of my posts you probably have heard me mention the series a few times… because I talk about it way too much!) Anyways, Marissa Meyer released her second graphic novel on January 30, Wires and Nerve Vol. 2: Gone Rogue, about the lovely android Iko. So, we are celebrating (a little late.. oops) by discussing 6 reasons why you should check out the Lunar Chronicles! Continue reading

Review: Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast

28945665Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast 

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Release Date: August 29, 2017

Genre: YA Science Fiction

He has no voice, or name, only a rank, Eighth. He doesn’t know the details of the mission, only the directives that hum in his mind.

Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall.

His job is to protect his Offside. Let her do the shooting.

Until a human kills her…

Sixteen year-old Raven is at summer camp when the terrifying armored Nahx invade, annihilating entire cities, taking control of the Earth. Isolated in the wilderness, Raven and her friends have only a fragment of instruction from the human resistance.

Shelter in place.

Which seems like good advice at first. Stay put. Await rescue. Raven doesn’t like feeling helpless but what choice does she have?

Then a Nahx kills her boyfriend.

Thrown together in a violent, unfamiliar world, Eighth and Raven should feel only hate and fear. But when Raven is injured, and Eighth deserts his unit, their survival depends on trusting each other…


Hey, everyone! I haven’t been super active with blogging lately, but I recently finished Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast, and I was pleasantly surprised by the unique story I discovered. It is an interesting science fiction read, very similar to The Fifth Wave. The characters are dynamic and challenge the idea of what makes us human. With incredible allusions to Poe’s “The Raven,” this book is an amazing read for anyone who loves a good sci-fi! Continue reading

The Reading Quest Update + Reviews

img_1531

Hello, hello! We are halfway (and a litte more) through #TheReadingQuest hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight, and I think I’m doing pretty good! I’m sure there are people reading far more than me, but considering the speed in which I usually read, I’m quite happy. (During this Quest, I am reading each book in about four days, when usually it would take me over a week with school going on.) Continue reading
