My Review I honestly don’t know how to feel about this book.  I wanted to like it, but I couldn’t help but notice the vaguely racist tone to it.  And that turned me off the entire story. The story revolves around Akos and Cyra, two people from different tribes.  They share a planet, but share […]

My Review The Infinty of You & Me, a collaboration between authors Julianna Baggott and Quinn Dalton, is a fascinating take on multiverse theory.  Every decision made creates a new parallel universe.  And for Alicia, every single decision is a paralyzing moment, no matter how seemingly insignificant the choice.  Her entire life has been plagued […]

My Review This book… there are no words for how much Atwood’s words affected me.  The book was originally published when I was about 16, but I didn’t read it.  In some ways, I regret that because I think it would have been interesting to compare the two experiences, 30 years apart.  Kim at 16 […]

My Review I absolutely loved the first novel in this series, A Thousand Pieces of You, and this book was just as good.  The story is woven throughout the multiverse as Marguerite fights to save both Paul and Theo.  And like the first book, this one makes you think about life, choices, and their unforeseen ramifications. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
