The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron – An Unforgettable All-Time Favorite!

The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron – An Unforgettable All-Time Favorite!

All-Time Favorites, Reviews 22 ★★★★★

This book. I LOVED this book! I was in a serious reading funk when I started reading The Forgetting—not a slump because I had actually read a couple of really good books, but nothing that truly excited me. Nothing that gripped me from the very beginning and made me super eager to pick up my book anytime I was forced to put it down. The Forgetting was that book for me. I actually went into it with relatively low expectations because my mom read the book first and she was going to write a review for me, but she kept forgetting about it. (Literally. We laughed several times because she’d be like, “What book did I read that you wanted me to review?” and I’d laugh and say, “The Forgetting!”) But I honestly don’t know how she could forget it because I definitely couldn’t! (She later told me that she wasn’t… Read more »

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee – ARC Review

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee – ARC Review

Reviews 13 ★★★★

A fun guilty pleasure read with lots of drama and an interesting mystery, The Thousandth Floor had me intrigued from the start! What Fed My Addiction:  The Players: Since there were SO many characters and POV’s in this book, I’ll give you a little rundown of the major players. I really enjoyed almost all of them! Avery and Atlas: These two live on the top floor in the penthouse. Even though Avery is obviously the richest girl in the tower, and therefore has the highest social standing, I love that she isn’t a snob. She’s actually one of the warmest characters in the book, and she genuinely seems to care about her friends, whatever floor they live on. Atlas, Avery’s adopted brother, has been away for quite some time and he’s left a hole in her life that she can’t seem to fill. Leda: Leda is Avery’s best friend, but she… Read more »

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty Published by Flatiron Books in 6/26/16 Genres: Adult, Contemporary Pages: 432 Source: BEA My content rating: Talk of sex, but nothing more My rating: Six responsible adults.

If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other. Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation.

The Siege by Mark Alpert – Review & Giveaway

The Siege by Mark Alpert – Review & Giveaway

Giveaways (Ended), Reviews 5 ★★★★

***NOTE: This review is for the second book in a series, but doesn’t really contain spoilers for the first book The Six. Click on the link to see my review of that book.*** If you’re looking for true YA sci-fi (not sci-fi light), then this series is for you! What Fed My Addiction: The sci fi. Fans of technology and sci-fi will love the different robots and gadgets in this series. I loved all of the descriptions of the different robots and how each person chose their “main” robot body and face. The physical manifestations of each of the characters were not only entertaining, they gave us insight into the characters’ personalities. It was obvious that Alpert put a lot of thought into what each character’s robot should look like and how it would represent them. All of the outrageous machines and technologies seemed a little crazy, but just like in the last… Read more »

The Clay Lion by Amalie Jahn – Review & Giveaway

The Clay Lion by Amalie Jahn – Review & Giveaway

Giveaways (Ended), Reviews 7 ★★★★

The Clay Lion is a time travel story that focuses on the emotional repercussions. When Brooke’s beloved brother dies of a disease that could have been prevented if he’d avoided an unknown trigger, she vows to go back in time and save him. Though the government monitors time travel and doesn’t allow travelers to make changes to their timelines, Brooke is sure that she can outsmart them. She researches her brother’s disease and finds two likely causes – and then she sets off to prevent him from encountering them. However, neither her first attempt or her second attempt at saving her brother are successful (you find this out right at the very beginning of the book, so it’s not a spoiler) and Brooke finds that her actions are causing harm to herself and others around her. She has to decide if she’s willing to risk inflicting more pain or if she can learn… Read more »

The Cage by Megan Shepherd Series: The Cage #1 Published by Balzer & Bray on 5/26/15 Genres: Young Adult, Sci Fi, Fantasy Pages: 405 Source: Edelweiss My content rating: YA (Nothing more than kissing) My rating: The Maze Runner meets Scott Westerfeld in this gripping new series about teens held captive in a human zoo by an otherworldly race. From Megan Shepherd, the acclaimed author of The Madman’s Daughter trilogy. When Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn’t know where she is or who put her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of environments—tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle, and a strangely empty town cobbled together from different cultures—all watched over by eerie black windows. And she isn’t alone. Four other teenagers have also been taken: a beautiful model, a tattooed smuggler, a secretive genius, and an army brat who seems to know too much about Cora’s past.

Bite-Sized Reviews – Romancing the Nerd, Tuck Everlasting, Island of the Blue Dolphins

Reviews 12 ★★★½

A few quick reviews of some books that deserve attention. Hopefully these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! Romancing the Nerd by Leah Rae Miller Series: Nerd #2 Published by Entangled Teen on 4/5/16 Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance Pages: 352 Source: NetGalley My content rating: YA (Nothing more than kissing) My rating: Dan Garrett has become exactly what he hates—popular. Until recently, he was just another live-action role-playing (LARP) geek on the lowest run of the social ladder. Cue a massive growth spurt and an uncanny skill at taking three-point shots in basketball and voila…Mr. Popular. It’s definitely weird. And the biggest drawback? Going from high school zero to basketball hero cost Dan the secret girl-of-his-dorky dreams. A tuba-playing nerd with an eclectic fashion sense, Zelda Potts’s “Coolness” stat is about minus forty-two. Dan turning his back on her and the rest of nerd-dom was brutal enough, but when he humiliates her at… Read more »

Nexis by A.L. Davroe – Review

Nexis by A.L. Davroe – Review

Reviews 10 ★★★★

Nexis is an innovative new YA sci-fi dystopian set in the post-apocalyptic future. The Aristocrats have created their own perfect society, separate from the undesirables outside the walls. Still, everyone needs a little outlet, right? That’s why they’re all so excited about Ella’s father’s virtual reality video game – a game so engrossing that he had to set a time limit so that people wouldn’t just play indefinitely and live out the rest of their lives in the game! Ella has always been resistant to the idea of Nexis because it kept her father so incredibly busy that he didn’t have time for her. But after an accident takes his life (and her legs), Nexis is the only way she can get close to him. And she starts to realize that her father meant the game for her all along … What I enjoyed: Altered. In Ella’s society, everyone is altered –… Read more »
