Review: Boundless by Cynthia Hand

Review: Boundless by Cynthia Hand

***Note – If you have not read the first two books in this series, this review will contain spoilers. *** When I finished Boundless, one of my most pressing questions was: Does Stanford actually have a course called The Practice of Happiness?  Indeed, it does.  Now that that urgent matter is out of the way, let’s get on to the story. I loved Unearthly, I was less enthralled with Hallowed, and I wanted so badly for this series to finish… Read more »

Review : The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker

Review : The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker

Full-disclosure: I love anything with an apocalyptic slant, so I was predisposed to like this book.  I was very intrigued when I read the description of “The Age of Miracles,” with its unique premise of an Earth whose rotation is slowing down. The story is narrated by Julia, now a young woman, but ten years old at the time the world first realizes what is happening to Earth. We never learn why the Earth has slowed, but nevertheless, the implications… Read more »

Review: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Review: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Let’s get straight to it.  This book was WAY TOO LONG.  As in 200 pages too long.  Maybe 300.  I felt the same way while reading this book that I felt when I watched Pearl Harbor at the movie theater.  I squirmed in my seat during the three and a half hour run time, and I grew increasingly distraught as calendar pages drifted across the screen.  I wanted to scream, “GET TO DECEMBER 7TH ALREADY!!!”  Same thing here.  I read… Read more »

And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely… Read more »

Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

  I loved Legend, and I desperately wanted Prodigy to live up to the standard set by its predecessor.  I’m happy to say that Marie Lu succeeded wonderfully.  When Prodigy opens, June and Day have fled the Republic, and they head to Las Vegas to join the Patriot rebellion.  Sibling love continues to play a big role as June continues to mourn her brother’s death, and Day is desperate to find his brother, Eden. I’m a huge fan of post-apocalyptic… Read more »
