Going Nowhere with Sequel Syndrome | Tarnished City by Vic James

Going Nowhere with Sequel Syndrome | Tarnished City by Vic James

I’m a bit disappointed with Tarnished City. The first in the series, Gilded Cage, held potential to kick off a great series but much like many a sequel, this book fell short. And it begins with the plot. Have you ever read a book that didn’t really go anywhere? I felt that way with Tarnished City, as if I was being turned in […]

Review – Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler

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

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

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. The beginning starts off much like the calm before the storm. You watch the world through a number of character eyes as the scenes transition around […]

Review – Tool of War by Paolo Bacigalupi

Review – Tool of War by Paolo Bacigalupi

For not reading the first two books in this series beforehand (yeah, not my smartest move) I actually really enjoyed this book. Tool of War felt like the complete opposite of so many young adult novels I’ve read. 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

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 […]
