I read another ebook on my TBR! It was … okay. I loved the world building but it fell short with the characterization. Watch on for why!
Did I really do it? Did I really read a YA book PLUS an ARC on time? I really, really did. I’m so proud! This book ripped out all my emotional insides and I give it four stars. Now, back to wallowing in my book hangover.
I got this book as an ARC. That doesn’t mean I read it before it came out. Still, this series is by the people behind my favorite YA scifi of all time, the Illuminae Files. I screamed when I picked up the ARC. Did I enjoy the book? Well, that’s what the video is for.
I have thoughts and feelings and lots of SQUEES for this book. Also, I have some critical comments in here somewhere. Getting back in the swing of this reviewing thing!
If you don’t want to be spoiled for Warcross, never fear! If you don’t want to be spoiled for Wildcard, this may not be the place for you. Fair warning!
Anyways, when I first read Wildcard … I had thoughts. They were not all great. Then, I read Warcross. I FELT SO WRONG. So now I’m apologizing for my own assumptions. Watch to find out why!
I released this video on the channel when the book actually wasn’t out yet but forgot to post it here. Listen. I’m a fallible human being. Anyways. This is one of the ARCs from BEA that I wasn’t sure was worth getting. After all, the author wasn’t there and I sat in line for like 2 hours. Was it worth it, you ask? YES, YES IT WAS. Why? That’s what the video is for!
I am mad about 3 things. Very, very mad. I also give this book 4.5 stars. How does this figure, you ask? Guess you’re going to have to watch the review to find out!

We’re in the middle of a free choice cycle, and for my pick I chose The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas–just in time for the beautiful collector’s edition that just came out. While none of us do have that beauty, we do have thoughts and feelings about this spectacular novel so check in and chat with us live at 9:30AM 2/27 or after the livestream at any time!
I wanted this to be so good. I really did. But then it just … wasn’t. I ended up giving it 2 stars and 1 really impassioned review because I thought it had so much potential and then it never lived up to it.
