Let’s get feminist – an interview with Leni Zumas

Happy Monday!!! Hopefully you made it through April Fool's Day unscathed! If you celebrate with Easter or Passover, I hope that your celebrations were filled with love and joy. In February, we read Red Clocks on Instagram for our #awesomeAFbuddyreads 📖 The author, Leni Zumas, joined us for many of these discussions, which prompted me to [...]

Red Clocks – Review

"Two years ago the United States Congress ratified the Personhood Amendment, which gives the constitutional right to life, liberty, and property to a fertilized egg at the moment of conception." Red Clocks introduces us to a chilling future. Unlike most dystopians, though, this future is closer to modern day. As you read, you become aware [...]

Ready Player One – Review

"Going outside is highly overrated." Virtual Reality has been the stuff of science fiction for a long time. Simulated worlds, offering everything that real life simply can't. And as a society that is closer to achieving the immersion into these worlds than ever before, I think the idea of exploring these virtual worlds is more [...]

The Power – Review

"The shape of power is always the same." The Power is such an amazing book! Anyone who enjoys reading about the complexity and reality of power, both perceived and enforced, implied and physical, will enjoy this novel. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and The Power shows us the harsh truth in those four words. We open with [...]

Gunslinger Girl – Review

"She should have seen it coming. Six months and she'd be lawfully released from his control. But he couldn't let that happen easy, not him." From the very first moment I saw photos of this gorgeous book being released at BookCon, I knew I had to have this book. A dystopian with a Western twist? [...]

Sip – Review

"The sun was up, so the dark could start. All about the ground, all in the same direction, shadows sprawled. And this is what he was after." Oh how deliciously dark Sip is! A novel where we find ourselves 150 years in the future. A future where people can drink their shadows and change their [...]

The Dying Game – Review

"This is where we'll place you when you're dead." These are the words that Anna hopes will lead to her freedom. Anna Francis is a single mother living in a future totalitarian Swedish society. The year is 2037 and the future is bleak. Anna is back at her old job, barely surviving her day to [...]

Arena – Review

"This wouldn't be the first time I died." Welcome to the future. The year is 2054. Virtual gaming has swept the world and virtual gamers are the celebrities of the time. And the RAGE tournaments in the Virtual Gaming League are where the worlds best face each other to fight to the death. Digital death, [...]

No Ordinary Star – Review

"If you're watching this, I'm dead." From the very beginning, we are thrown into a world that is simultaneously beautiful and brutal. This is a future where humans have solved basic human needs. There is no need to eat. There is no need to sleep. Honestly, on the surface this is a future that sounds [...]
