Q: Is it absolutely necessary to read the first book?
No, I haven’t read it and didn’t feel like I missed anything. Just treat this as a completely new book and you will be fine.
Q: Did it make me want to purchase and read the first book?
Also, no. I had a hard time connecting to any of the characters and only the shortness of the book made me plunge through it till the end. Continue reading “The Universe is Expanding and so am I by Carolyn Mackler |Don’t get fooled by the amazing cover!”
A debut novel by Juliet McDaniel is an absurd presentation of a socialite’s life, Maxine Simmons, in the late 60s – early 70s California – Palm Springs. Satirical, witty and VERY addicting – «Mr. & Mrs. American Pie» is a perfect summer read. Don’t need to look any longer if you are hunting for some books to take with you on summer vacations.

I might have made a mistake to binge read Gillian Flynn books at the beginning of my blogging career. Ever since that point, no thrillers ever came close to twisted and dark characters of Gillian Flynn.
Jar of Hearts had a few graphic moments and gore details, but I’ve predicted the twist way too soon. After that, the book lost a little bit of its appeal and I had to force myself to pick it up again.

I was 100% sure that I had already written a review for the first book in the series – «The 5th Wave». I even spent good 20 minutes searching through my blog/drafts/posts and just any document that might contain a hidden almost 2-year-old review. I found nothing!
As I just finished the second book in the series, my hands are itching to write some feedback because it was AMAZING and I LOVED IT WITH ALL MY DYSTOPIAN HEART!

When I was little, I constantly asked my parents to buy me more books. I think it was the only thing I ever asked for. My favorite book series back then was something similar to Nancy Drew – crime, mystery solving stories within a large collection of adventures.
When I picked this book up from NetGalley, I didn’t even realize that it was going to have that same adventurous vibe that I used to love in children books.

In this epic continuation to «Nyxia», following the events of the first book, Emmett Atwater and his crew have landed on the planet of Eden. But not under the circumstances they were hoping for. Their instructions were simple – play nice and extract Nyxia in great quantities, something they were trained to do on Genesis 11 spaceship.
Lies, intrigues, secrets, and betrayals continue in this sequel, as the crew tries to figure out their new alliances and set their allegiances. Continue reading “Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen | 5 Cool Things to use NYXIA for!”
Have you ever thought that a middle-grade novel could have the perfect plot of a dystopian world? Neither did I! And I was pleasantly surprised by the world created by B.A. Williamson in this book.
