Chase

This work is the sort of work which does everything well, but I wished it could be more. The story begins with a young mother, who has her own secrets with her situation being defining of what sort of world she lives in. In a loveless marriage, without any real way out. It got me… Continue reading Chase

Vengeful

In all cases, maintains the quality that it has set. Vicious was a revenge thriller this was after. And it was like watching a television show unravel, characters pitting against each other. All for a final showdown, each with their own story. And at its core, it was delectable and entertaining read. From Marcella, who… Continue reading Vengeful

Want

I was incredibly bored by the book. Despite trying all I can to ensure reading this it has been largely a boring experience. The story opens strangely. And then for the first hundred pages, nothing interesting happens. It is confusing into what sort of world it is. And the descriptions didn't serve to make it… Continue reading Want

Dry

This just didn't get me. It had an interesting premise where one was likely to really get to me. But just no idea what it had wanted to do at all. The story in my opinion had been really really poor. It just didn't catch me in any way at all. I was trying my… Continue reading Dry

The Swan Riders

Mostly I'm just unable to really grasp the story as a whole. It just goes by way too slowly, even as the writing is excellent. The whole idea of AI is well explained and understood. But I just felt that nothing was happening. Nothing was really important and everything just went from one page to… Continue reading The Swan Riders

Prodigy

I feel so underwhelmed by what was given. This wasn't some incredibly gripping thrillers, it had me skimming the pages because of the incredible lack of substance. This was neither a good dystopian, because they were killed because of just overpopulation. What sort of overpopulation that needed this kind of methods. And most importantly, it… Continue reading Prodigy

The Empress

On some level, this lacked something. Something which will have made me love it. Perhaps it is the change of villains, since the last book had two awesome villains which I really liked. Such as the Emperor and his mother. They were such a good villain and antagonist to the main characters. There wasn't anything… Continue reading The Empress

The Darkest Minds

And in the middle is where I feel that this doesn't go anywhere. Ruby is not relatable, as I didn't care for her neither did she do anything that made her stand out at all. I mean it. Ruby is incredibly boring, with little traits that makes her shine. And half of the time I… Continue reading The Darkest Minds

The Flame Never Dies

This was one book which I really didn't expect a lot of things. And well, it was written in such a way that I fully enjoyed the series. For what it was, and how it was written. To me, this isn't like most books. The premise is original, and the sequel definitely surprised me in… Continue reading The Flame Never Dies

The Scorpion Rules

This was something that I feel is worth the addition, as it has rather complex thoughts and completely does a different things from most dystopian novels. The world here is as simple as this, it has been taken over by an AI, as long as each president or monarch hand over a child of theirs,… Continue reading The Scorpion Rules

The Stars Never Rise

This was a quick read. Very very quick read. I read it in one day, and derived a lot of entertainment from this. The most surprising part is what the story is all about. That the well of souls dried up, and eventually making that for each soul born, another soul must be lost. But… Continue reading The Stars Never Rise

The Diabolic

This was a strangely very science fiction yet a tale full of intrigue. Spun in such a way that I really enjoyed every page of it. The story is set in the near future, but it is still about endless political struggles between the Emperor and in this case, the study of sciences and maths.… Continue reading The Diabolic

Warcross

If you were to ask me, this doesn't sound like something I will have enjoyed if it wasn't by Marie Lu. But as you all know, I totally fell in love with her work. And this still works even if it isn't what I will usually read. I flew through this book, in a way… Continue reading Warcross

Invictus

This just worked. Even when it was time travel and alternate universes all grouped together. This completely worked to create one of the most interesting books anyone laid eyes on. I am even more blown away by the author who managed to create such a story combining everything. But such a satisfying tale as it… Continue reading Invictus

The Stone Sky

Now this was a very satisfying conclusion. I was in love with the first book and the same for the second happened. Here, is where it truly ends. But it isn't just about the moon returning, but also about Essun's tale of motherhood and need for her children. She starts by searching for her daughter,… Continue reading The Stone Sky

Our Dark Duet

Once again, this author has managed to find the unbelievable to kill me again, I loved This Savage Song, and these is a satisfying sequel. One with an ending that is suitable in my eyes yet completely torn me apart. Returning to this world, again is as bleak as it always was. We make our… Continue reading Our Dark Duet

The After War

Something about this just worked for me. The world indeed did feel rather like a post apocalyptic world, with plenty of moments which did attract me. I did have some fondness for the main character, who is rather relatable and the writing was easy for me to get into and read. As well as figure… Continue reading The After War

Scythe

I would say that this was enjoyable in how the author explored immortality. Which is actually something that if possible, what are its effects and what can become of the world. Nonetheless, I do see where it's heading in the first book, and the ending excerpt definitely hints where the book is going itself.  The… Continue reading Scythe

Undivided 

This has been a really a satisfying conclusion to me. And a whole lot of things happened all at once here, which I would agree.  But I do like the ending well enough, it makes everything feel worthwhile yet not perfect. Even though all characters survived, but some are not completely the same anymore. And… Continue reading Undivided¬†
