Review – Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler

I almost DNFed Runebinder. I wanted to love it because it’s diverse. It’s YA. It’s fantasy. I mean, you can’t lose, right? Heh. About that. . . So this book’s major problem right off the bat for me was the fact that I had no idea what was going on. For starters, I thought this was a fantasy (as in, a […]

Review – Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely

I wanted to love Gunslinger Girl. So much, in fact, that when I started struggling to read it and set it aside I couldn’t bring myself to read something else in the meantime. As though if I limited myself long enough I’d give in and push through until it got better because it totally would. . . right? It kind of […]

Review – Year One by Nora Roberts

I started out absolutely in love with this book. My expectation was that this would be some combination of a dystopian and an urban fantasy. Which I got, but almost in a chunked form.

It’s dark. It’s dystopian. And usually I’m not a fan of the genre because every book sounds like something I’ve already read but I […]

Review – Last Star Burning by Caitlin Sangster

I. . . wasn’t prepared for this book. You know, maybe I should have read the synopsis a bit more closely because I thought I was going to be reading a sweeping YA fantasy and that wasn’t really the case. And that’s not a bad thing, to be honest, because this book has altered my view of dystopians a bit […]

Review – The Innocence Treatment by Ari Goelman

What do you do when you believe everything you’re told? It’s crazy, hearing that. Sounds like fiction. Which, in this case, it is though I know a few people out there that fit the description too… In Lauren’s case, it’s extreme and the surgery she has makes her truly see the truth. It’s not pretty. I wasn’t really sure about The […]
