Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars Once and Future is a science fiction retelling (or reimagining) of the King Arthur legend by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy.

Lifelike – Jay Kristoff

Lifel1k3 by Jay Kristoff My rating: 4 of 5 stars I am a huge fan of Jay Kristoff's writing through the co-written series: the Illuminae Files, but I had never read a book that he had written by himself - until now.

Illuminae – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (Audiobook/Reread)

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars I loved this book, even more, the second time that I read it.

Book Review

Storm of Lightning – Richard Paul Evans

Storm of Lightning by Richard Paul Evans My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars Storm of Lightning is the fifth book in the Michael Vey series. It still possessed the same writing quality as the previous books, which makes it feel like a middle-grade novel rather than a young adult series. As Michael is a fourteen-year-old… Continue reading Storm of Lightning – Richard Paul Evans

The Knowing – Sharon Cameron

The Knowing by Sharon Cameron My rating: 4 of 5 stars The Knowing is a companion novel to the Forgetting, rather than a strict sequel. Set hundreds of years after the events of the first book, the Knowing took a little time to find it's pace and delve into the story. At first, I wasn't… Continue reading The Knowing – Sharon Cameron

Otherworld – Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

Otherworld by Jason Segel My rating: 3,5 of 5 stars I struggled to decide how I feel about this book because though it was enjoyable (eventually) it wasn't particularly well written. I actually didn't enjoy the book at first and was afraid that it was going to end up being a much lower rating. The… Continue reading Otherworld – Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller
