My Review I truly love this series!  The world is a dystopian society based on the ideals of beauty.  It is a society that redefined beauty as a conforming concept, a society in which everyone’s entire worth is based on their beauty.  The fact that beauty is a manufactured ideal, rather than natural, is of […]

My Review My favorite thing about dystopian fiction is their ability to give me a different perspective on our world, culture, and society.  Dystopian novels push me to really consider the world that we live in and see a little bit of our reality in the dystopian world, to see the potential for what our world could […]

My Review The Kill Order is the first prequel to The Maze Runner series, soon to be followed by The Fever Code.  This book takes place 13 years prior to the events of The Maze Runner and, although I have read many reviews that expressed disappointment because of the lack of connection between this book and the trilogy, but […]

My Review The Death Cure… the end to a series that I really enjoyed.  And I did enjoy this book, although I am still not sure how I feel about the conclusion!! I have mixed feelings, but I have to wonder if perhaps that is exactly how the author meant us to feel.  These books […]

My Review The Maze Runner had me hooked from the beginning and The Scorch Trials kept that going.  This one was non-stop action and even more of the mysteries of the world they live in are revealed. The Gladers have been told that their trials are over now, but in reality, they are just beginning.  There is no […]

My Review This is one of the few books that I read AFTER seeing the movie, the movie making me want to read it when I previously had no interest.  And I loved it and the premise of the story. The story opens with Thomas, locked in a metal box-like lift that is moving through […]

My Review Soulprint is a new sci-fi/thriller novel with an extremely fascinating premise.  It looks at the soul in an interesting way, looking at it from social and scientific viewpoints, rather than as a part of any particular spirituality.  It takes place in a world in which science has advanced to the point of being able […]

My Review I am honestly not sure how I feel about this book.  It is very reminiscent of Jurassic Park, just on a larger scale with much more intrigue and, if it is possible, more action.  The premise is fascinating, the lengths to which China would go in order to become a cultural superpower.  The prologue […]

Anomaly

My Review Anomaly is the debut novel of author Tonya Kuper and the first in a new series, Schrodinger’s Consortium.  Unless you are crazy knowledge about various deep principles of science, that series title probably won’t mean much… until you read the story!  I love science fiction that just seems like it just might be possible! […]

My Review I have very mixed feelings about this book.  I enjoyed it, but there were some parts that didn’t ring true for me and that colored the rest of the story for me. What I absolutely loved was a female protagonist that was both crazy brilliant and flawed.  Lyra was more than a little socially […]
