Bite-Sized Reviews of Waking in Time, Redux, Confessions of a High School Disaster, Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, and Mutant Mantis Lunch Ladies

I’ve gotten a lot of new books for review lately, and I’ve decided to do bite-sized reviews of some of them, so I don’t have to post every single day of the week for forever. Hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! I’m a huge fan of time-travel stories, so when the author offered this one up for review (at an event I attended) I had to snatch it up! I’m […]

Assassins: Discord by Erica Cameron – Review, Author Playlist & Giveaway

Assassins: Discord by Erica Cameron – Review, Author Playlist & Giveaway

Click here to Purchase the book at Riptide Assassins: Discord follows Kindra, a teenage girl who’s been raised as an assassin. Yeah, I know this sounds a tad bit far-fetched, but I was able to suspend disbelief for the most part—I mean, it’s not that much stranger than crime families who raise their kids to be in the “business,” right? If mom and dad are both assassins, it seems logical that they’d train up the kids to […]

Been Here All Along by Sandy Hall – Review & Giveaway

Been Here All Along by Sandy Hall – Review & Giveaway

This book is sweet and fun and all sorts of adorable. It was a typical, simple high school romance, but it was kind of nice to see one of those with LGBT characters – without a lot of angsty complications.  What Fed My Addiction: Gideon and Kyle. It would be hard not to love this duo. They’ve been best friends for almost their whole lives – they bond over their love of Lord of the Rings […]

This is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp – Review & Giveaway

This is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp – Review & Giveaway

This is Where It Ends is an intense reading experience. And, unfortunately, the situation portrayed in the book is all too real in today’s society. (I read an article on NBC News the other day that said there have been more mass shootings in the US than days this year – how scary is that?) The book looks at a school shooting from the perspective of four students who have a connection to the shooter in […]

The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow – Review

The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow – Review

The Scorpion Rules is the type of book that isn’t always easy, but the moral questions that it asks will really get you thinking. In this dystopian an AI named Talis has taken over the world by force – to save us from ourselves. This AI sees the destruction that war has caused to the human race and the earth and he decides that he can do better. So, basically, he takes hostages. Every ruling […]

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera – Review

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera – Review

More Happy Than Not was such an incredible surprise to me. I apparently didn’t read the blurb very carefully (or the reviews – I just saw that they were glowing and knew that the main character was gay) because I didn’t remember about The Leteo Institute before I started reading, so that bit of sci-fi element to the book (some people are calling it fantasy, but I’d say it’s more sci-fi – the idea is […]

Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway – 5 Star Review

Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway – 5 Star Review

This book was so much more than I expected it to be! Okay, for some reason I didn’t go back and reread the synopsis before I picked this one up. I just noticed that a lot of people I trust (I’m talking to you, Shannon at It Starts at Midnight) had loved it and realized that it had just been released, so I decided to go for it. All I remembered was that it was […]

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson – Review

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson – Review

This book is incredibly hard to review because it’s so hard to even describe. The story is told in alternating POV’s. We get Noah’s POV, describing what happens when the twins are 13 years old and starts out when they are still very close. Jude’s POV jumps to when the twins are 16, and we see that a huge rift has formed between them. As the story unfolds, we slowly start to see how this happened […]

ARC Review – The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

ARC Review – The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

This was my first Holly Black book, and I’m starting to see what all the fuss is about. Black has an amazing ability to create a fantastical world and tie it into our own – I loved how the fae world collided with the “real” world in this book! What I LOVED: The small town feel mixed with magic. I loved how Black managed to take this realistic-feeling small town and turn it into something extraordinary. Fairfold […]
