A Thousand Pieces of You

A Thousand Pieces of You

My Review You remember how your parents always told you not to judge a book by it’s cover?  I didn’t listen and I am glad I didn’t.  I realize I am late to the game in reading this, but just reading the blurb told me that I wanted to wait until all three books were […]

The Diabolic

The Diabolic

My Review Diabolic is the first in a new series of the same name by author S.J. Kincaid.  The book is science fiction in every sense of the world.  It takes place in the distant future that in no way resembles are own.  The power structure is an Empire and it is based on a sun […]

Ink and Bone

Ink and Bone

My Review Ink and Bone is the first book in the new Great Library series and it is such an interesting premise, rewriting history in a way that is absolutely intense for anyone who truly loves the written word. In this world, knowledge, or too much of it, is seen as almost a disease, the foundation of ruin […]

Extras

Extras

My Review Extras is the unexpected final book in the Uglies series, following what was originally touted as a trilogy.  The series is set in a dystopian future in which the ideas of beauty and conformity are the central ideals of the society.  This book takes place a few years after Tally’s story ended and centers on Aya […]

Specials

Specials

My Review I have such mixed emotions about this book.  It was originally supposed to be the final book in a trilogy, although there is now a fourth book in which Tally appears as a non-central character.  So, even though this ended up not being the final book, it is really the final book in […]

Pretties

Pretties

My Review I truly love this series!  The world is a dystopian society based on the ideals of beauty.  It is a society that redefined beauty as a conforming concept, a society in which everyone’s entire worth is based on their beauty.  The fact that beauty is a manufactured ideal, rather than natural, is of […]

Uglies

Uglies

My Review My favorite thing about dystopian fiction is their ability to give me a different perspective on our world, culture, and society.  Dystopian novels push me to really consider the world that we live in and see a little bit of our reality in the dystopian world, to see the potential for what our world could […]

The Kill Order

The Kill Order

My Review The Kill Order is the first prequel to The Maze Runner series, soon to be followed by The Fever Code.  This book takes place 13 years prior to the events of The Maze Runner and, although I have read many reviews that expressed disappointment because of the lack of connection between this book and the trilogy, but […]

The Death Cure

The Death Cure

My Review The Death Cure… the end to a series that I really enjoyed.  And I did enjoy this book, although I am still not sure how I feel about the conclusion!! I have mixed feelings, but I have to wonder if perhaps that is exactly how the author meant us to feel.  These books […]

The Scorch Trials

The Scorch Trials

My Review The Maze Runner had me hooked from the beginning and The Scorch Trials kept that going.  This one was non-stop action and even more of the mysteries of the world they live in are revealed. The Gladers have been told that their trials are over now, but in reality, they are just beginning.  There is no […]
