Pages: 416

Synopsis:

On a floating junkyard beneath a radiation sky, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap.

Eve isn’t looking for secrets—she’s too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she’s just spent six months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, and the only thing keeping her Grandpa from the grave was the fistful of credits she just lost to the bookies. To top it off, she’s discovered she can destroy electronics with the power of her mind, and the puritanical Brotherhood are building a coffin her size. If she’s ever had a worse day, Eve can’t remember it.

But when Eve discovers the ruins of an android boy named Ezekiel in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world comes crashing down. With her best friend Lemon Fresh and her robotic conscience, Cricket, in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, infiltrate towering megacities and scour the graveyard of humanity’s greatest folly to save the ones Eve loves, and learn the dark secrets of her past.

Even if those secrets were better off staying buried.t.


My Review:

When I first heard about this book, I kneww I wanted to read it mainly because of Jay. I’ve loved everything else I read by him, so I had high hopes for this one as well. Sadly, I just don’t think it hit the same spot as his other books have done for me in the past. Continue reading “Book Review | LIFEL1K3, by Jay Kristoff”

Not Good (For Me, Anyways)

Re: I Can’t Read a Sequel Without Rereading the First Book First.

Godsgrave is hitting the shelves.  In fact, I’ve already seen it at the store I work at.  I didn’t buy it yet, though, because money.

And I know for a fact that it starts off with a refresher (I…may have the egalley but am definitely not going to be finishing it in time for the publication date lol.  But I glanced at the first few pages and there’s a little refresher of who’s who and such!)

But

I still feel the small niggling feeling

There in the back of my head

It’s Nevernight and it’s saying “Reread me!  Reread me!”

Shhh, no, I don’t have time!!  I need to know what’s next for Mia now!!!

Wow gosh this probably sounds like a crazy person talking to herself sorry not sorry.

We are halfway through August already, can you believe it?!!  I’m on vacation next week so I am currently counting down the days till then.  In the meantime, I wanted to share some books that I am most excited for which are coming out this September.  September through November tend to see a lot of new releases in anticipation of the holiday season, so of course, I have plenty on my list as well.

September 5th

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Reddingby Alexandra Bracken – I’m not going to lie, the name “Alexandra Bracken” is kind of a key factor in why I am eagerly anticipating this book, but also the demon-possession aspect sounds pretty darn cool too.   Continue reading “Anticipated Reads | September 2017”
