    oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best YA fantasy! what will happen? i'm going to review this without giving too much away, which seems to be the publisher's desire, since this is the first time i have ever gotten an arc that had this across every s...

    So, I should preface this with a few key points. I work for a bookstore and received an ARC of this book through my job. All opinions are my own. This review is not an attack on the author, the publisher, or anyone else. I am also white, and I am aware this affects myposition to call...

    "Carve The Mark is straining to be everything to everyone yet ends up hollow and soulless. It is a novel seemingly comprised of editorial requests yet seems to have been untouched by the editing process. It begs to be unique in its world-building but falls so fast into the most de...

    Long review for a rather long read. I'm still struggling to figure what words are appropriate to describe the mediocrity and utter pointlessness of this book. My thoughts about it aren't as concise as this review will turn out being, because I only have so many words to fit i...

    Ok...I'm gonna film a review tomorrow and talk about something. Over al, objectively, I'm bouncing between 4-4.5 more towards a 4. Subjectively...really not my style so more of a 3 if you have similar "preferences" as me. As far as everything else goes, I'll...

    After Allegiant I don't know wether to trust Veronica Roth. I mean, that book... that fucking book: But let's give it a chance! Let's read the description: "in "the vein of 'Star Wars'" "a boy's "unlikely alliance" ...

    1 1/2 stars. Just.... soooo sloooowwww. Let's be honest, I actually liked Divergent for what it was - a fast-paced, exciting YA adventure that demanded very little of me. Sure, a lot of the world made absolutely no sense, and I still find that whole "I'm Dauntless so ...

    Oh dear!! Where do I start????? Racial stereotyping and questionable use of certain imagery. Ill advised plot lines that reinforce rape culture rather than expose it as negative Unflagged trigger warnings. And a romanticised depiction of chronic pain (something that is very perso...

    EDIT 11/02/2017/: Lowering my rating to two stars because holy moley, I already don't remember a thing of what happened in this book. And I read it, like, a month ago. This is Lady Midnight happening to me all over again. Is it my memory's fault or these run-of-the-mill-yet-s...

    "I didn't choose the blood that runs in my veins," I replied. "Any more than you chose your fate. You and I, we've become what we were made to become." I feel like I could throw a dart in a bookstore and hit at least a dozen YA books with practicall...

    Am I the only one confused by the blurb? What I'm getting is Romeo and Juliet, superpowers, and a thinly-veiled Abnegation/Dauntless showdown thing. Too much, yet too little. Am I the only one confused by the blurb? What I'm getting is Romeo and Juliet, superpowers, an...

    This was a YA sci-fi/fantasy story, set in a different universe. I liked how strong Akos was in this story, and he really did hold up under some terrible circumstances. I also liked Cyra, who put up with so much pain from such a young age, and was still able to be feared, and able t...

    I'd like to put a disclaimer for all the controversy surrounding this novel. I read this before anyone and didn't see the underlying issues everyone saw with the story until a few of my friends told me about all the explosions on social media sites I don't even have. I d...

    I liked the story overall! But there a few things that might seem minor, but are actually really detracting from the story, and I took issue with them. It was a good story, don't get me wrong. But I have some things to explore in my review that I just didn't like. ***Rev...

    this book reminds me of preteen me, meaning it tries too hard to fit in with all the cool kids. oof. not a good look for anyone involved. trust me. this book tries a little too hard to be YA relatable, to be sci-fi intense, and to have the most fantastic world ever built. and i thin...

    2018 edit because I'm still getting hate mail. The UK publisher asked me to review the book, they sent me a contract to sign for me to sign saying that I would get paid. I declined because I don't rate books well to earn a few coins, I'm the Book Bitch for a reason. ...

    Three things: 1. This book tries to YA too hard 2. This book tries to Sci-fi too hard 3. This book tries to world build too hard I do give it 3 stars because overall I found it enjoyable, but the the things above distracted me so much. (Note: Lowered to two stars on 10/17/2017 ...

    I was very disappointed with this book. Maybe after Divergent my expectations were too high, and it probably not fair to compare the tow although when a book is released saying the writer of Divergent it is hard not to expect a lot and compare the two. Also knowing Veronica Roth was a ...

    I refuse to put myself in a position where the likelihood of myself being triggered is high. I don't think the "kill marks" which feature in this book are okay. My friend Cait talks more about how they these marks can be connected to self harm. I was curious about this b...
