If you like: adventure, romance, drama, thrillers, outer space, Paris, love, disaster, the thought of …

Skybreaker by Kenneth Oppel

I’m back! I’ve been really busy so it took me a while to get through this book, but I finally did! It’s the second book of the “Matt Cruse” trilogy, and it’s just as fantastically amazing as book one and book three! Exactly one week until PAYA!!!!!!!!! *takes deep breaths, hyperventilates, does an embarrassing dance …

Airborn by Kenneth Oppel

So good news: I’m back! More good news: I’ve started to reread the trilogy that has the line that this blog is named for (that was a somewhat confusing sentence). Good news part three: two weeks and one day until PAYA 2012!!! The day before the festival I may have to be sedated I’m going …

The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Tunnel Vision by Susan Shaw

Second to last PAYA Festival book! And an announcement: I may have to start doing reviews three days a week instead of five. I have two incredibly boring fun-sucking books to read for school, one that may not be too soul-sucking, a Calculus math packet created by Satan himself, and I’m working five days a …

Everlasting by Angie Frazier

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Taking a break from last year’s PAYA reviews to bring you this dystopian novel! Somewhere in my Internet travels, I read a bunch of reviews that said this book wasn’t very good, it didn’t have a good plot, the characters were flat, blah blah, etc. I however, found it through one of my spastic Barnes …

Partials by Dan Wells

I just reviewed Dan Wells’ brother’s book yesterday, but I read this book way before I readĀ Variant. If you’ve ever seenĀ I Am Legend starring Will Smith (who I seriously love — repping Philly! WOO!), this book reminds me a lot of that movie. I’m a really big wimp, so (*this is a true story*) in …

Variant by Robison Wells

I read the book PartialsĀ by Dan Wells a few weeks ago (which I will be reviewing soon!), and found out his brother is an author as well! It goes kinda along with my dystopian/sci-fi obsession, but doesn’t take place in the future, so it’s a mix of a bunch of things. I read the first …

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons

I found this book somewhere in my crazed searching-BN.com-for-a-dystopian-book-that-would-be-amazing faze that is still occurring today. I stockpile books like other people stockpile food and weapons for the apocalypse, so this was book number 2 of 8 that was purchased for vacation reading. I really owe my mom some money for like four of those…but anyway. …
