Main points This book was a disappointment for me. It was just really frustrating. I wanted to like it, but from the beginning it was clear that this book was not for me. I understand that after the Apocalypse, things are bound to be a little crazy, but this was a whole new kind of crazy. The way people talked didn’t make sense. Conversations didn’t flow properly and any and all logic flew out the window. It was very difficult to read. The characters were all extremely stupid and most were very mean, horrible people. […]

Main points I liked this book! But there are a couple things that must be said. First of all, there is a LOT the synopsis doesn’t tell you. I went into it because I hadn’t read a book about larger-than-average women before and I needed diversity. I got a whole lot MORE than that. Second, there are a lot of, shall we say, interesting things that occur in this book. It’s definitely bordering on erotica, let’s get that out of the way right now. It’s kinky. Strange stuff goes down. There’s a bit of unexpected […]

Main points WHERE IS THE SECOND BOOK. I NEED IT NOW. Wow, this book is definitely one of my favorites so far this year. It’s beautifully written and edited. (I swear, I only found a single typo.) It was very emotional and conflicted. And the plot twists were beautiful. The synopsis gives you just the basics. There’s a competition. It’s a brutal one. What it doesn’t tell you is that things are more complicated than that, especially with feelings involved. But you could probably tell that, right? Sinclair was deliciously hard to pin down. He […]

Main points This book was very trippy. It felt like one long nightmare. (Not as in reading it, but because of the plot.) Honestly, that’s the best way to describe it. Some parts were confusing because we weren’t given all the details. Most came to light later, but I still thought the ending was confusing. It wasn’t an epic, violent cliffhanger, but the adventure was far from over. So the gist is that they have to face these “six” challenges. (There were actually eight, for Nora and Aidan at least.) A few are based on […]

Main points This book was brutal. In just about every respect. It’s good, but it’s harsh. Grating on the emotions. And a page-turner, for sure. The plot changes every few pages, it seems. It’s never quite clear what the end goal is, because I think that changes a few times as well, but there’s always some short-term immediate goal. Usually escaping. Not getting killed. The usual. It’s gripping. It’s also savage. It’s a harsh world. Well, most of it. Everyone’s grown up paranoid and ready to attack. There’s a lot of bloodshed and cruelty. Anyone […]

Main points This book was really cool! It would have made a great horror movie, I’ll tell you that. It was one of those books where you’re never actually sure what’s real, but either way you’re pretty sure the main character is going crazy. Or is crazy. Keeps you on your toes. It’s one of those books where anything goes. What’s great is that at the end you think things are finally going to wrap up and make sense, and they start to, but then—BAM! You’re suddenly unsure of what just happened. I won’t give […]
