Review: Forget Me – K. A. Harrington

Review: Forget Me – K. A..

Personally I love a good mystery book. I’ve been a fan since I was young abs read The Westing Game for the first time. I love the hints and the small clues that try to give away the end. I will admit that most that I’ve read I have figured out early, but doesn’t take my love away. So when I heard about Forget Me I was very excited. It seemed creepy and weird and totally up my alley to be filled with clues. And now that I have read Forget Me I can report that it lived up to […]

Right away I will admit to not liking this as much as Legend at all. I found the middle to drag and the end was super sad but you could see coming from a mile away.

One is the privileged, “smart” girl that is destined for a high ranking in the Republic’s government. The other is a street rat that does everything he can to take the Republic down and save his family who are the most important people in the […]

Review: The 5th Wave – Rick Yancey

Review: The 5th Wave – R..

Flat out, I was disappointed when I finished this one. I don’t know what I expected, but after all the love and the hype I just wanted something more and I just didn’t find it. Was it different than what I normally read? Absolutely. Did it keep me interested enough? Yup. But something wasn’t there for me and that left me feeling meh. There was a lot going on and a lot of characters and the whole thing was written in 3rd person even with the switch of characters and that made it kind of hard to know who’s voice […]
