I had seen this book all over other blogs this past year.  And how beautiful is that cover?  So I was very excited to see that the author was going to be at BEA this past summer.  I was lucky enough to get in line and meet her, as well as get an autographed ARC.  […]

Thanks to Edelweiss and St. Martin’s Griffin for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  I am a huge fan of dystopian and this sounded right up my alley.  Overall I felt it was a good story, while I was left with something feeling missing, but not in a way that I won’t […]

This is another of the ARCs I got at BEA this summer.  I haven’t read the Birthmarked trilogy by this author, but one of my really good friends has read it and liked it, so I figured I had to get a copy of this when I was at BEA.  And actually, I did really […]

First thanks to Spencer Hill Press and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  It actually came out this July, at least in the US.  And I think the sequel, Flawed, which I also have an e-galley of, comes out in August.  So it is nice having them to read together.  […]

First thanks to Feiwel and Friends and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  As anyone who has followed my blog for awhile knows, I’m a huge fan of dystopian stories.  And this was one that sounded really intriguing.  A future world where we no longer need to eat real food, it […]

First, thanks to Edelweiss and Random House for Young Readers for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I read the first book, Dualed, back in the summer of 2012.   So it had been awhile since I’d read it. But I remembered the main points of the story. In this futuristic society, people […]

All I can say is that this was just a WOW book for me.  A spectacular, emotional, perfect ending to a trilogy that I’ve loved so much.  There were about 2 points in the book that I was soooo afraid it would end up being like Allegiant, definitely a good, believable ending, but not what […]
