Book Review : Starsight

Book Review : Starsight

I am so glad that I pushed through Skyward in order to get to its follow up, Starsight. Starsight feels much more like a Sanderson novel to me, complete with amazing world, er, galaxy building. I was completely surprised and thrown by the direction Starsight went in, but boy, was I glad it did. The only reason I didn’t give this book five stars was because there were a mere […]

Book Review : Skyward

Book Review : Skyward

In my household, author Brandon Sanderson is always referred to as “my man, Brandon Sanderson.” I know when I pick up one of his novels, whether intended for adults or young adults, I am in for a treat with well-developed characters and fantastic world-building. With Skyward, I was immediately intrigued by the world-building, but I was a bit surprised to find that this sizable novel was very geared towards younger […]

To top it off, most of Harrow the Ninth […]

Plus, I was intrigued by the synopsis of To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, which sounded like an epic sci-fi story with a badass female protagonist named Kira. Unfortunately, no matter how hard I tried, […]

Book Review : Glow: Book I, Potency

Book Review : Glow: Book I, Potency

I never wanted to pick Glow: Book I, Potency up to read it and it was a sheer battle of will to just get through the novel. Glow : Book I, Potency suffers from severe pacing problems, flat characters, and cringy dialogue. Though the idea of the novel itself was interesting and obviously well-researched, its execution simply couldn’t save the novel. The story follows 16-year-old Harper as a sickness, known […]
