#makeoutmarrymurdermonday

After standing in line all weekend at BookCon, chatting with book lovers and authors alike, I was a little overwhelmed when trying to come up with a theme for our stabby Monday. And then I remembered! This isn't the first big book convention I've been to! My very first large convention was when RT (Romantic [...]

Vox – Review

"It's the little stuff I miss most: jars of pens and pencils tucked into the corners of every room, notepads wedged in between cookbooks, the dry-erase shopping list on the wall next to the spice cabinet." One day, one by one, men went into the homes of every American, and silenced women. A simple device, [...]

It Takes Death To Reach A Star – Review

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for including me on this blog tour! "The streets are dark and cold, shadows upon shadows concealing the horrors of Etyom. It's hard to believe this place was once considered a haven." We find ourselves in a distant but believable future. One where a plague, powerful, resistant, crept over [...]

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? [...]
