Honestly- this book was not very good (for me). The book had very little action and Too. Much. Dialogue. Of course this is my opinion but very rarely was I excited to turn the page. The book does have a sort-of interesting plot but verges more on the realistic fiction side than the dystopian future side. I do want to give regard to the two action scenes that were actually exciting. For me I would rate this book a 3/10, but this is my opinion.

MrsBabki I value your opinion! I think you have great insights - I love how you think! 1mo
Cfischbuch Was it just lack of energetic pacing (plot) or were the characters lacking personality (where you just don‘t feel invested in them)? 1mo
reiddecillia @Cfischbuch the characters in this book were well made, but the book focused almost too much on character development, and left no room for plot development. Paired with the fact that the book is really long, it just made for a boring book. (edited) 1mo

This book was honestly the pinnacle of sci-fi, up there with Illuminae on my favourite books. Though it isn‘t hardcore sci-fi like Illuminae, it would be something like a “lost” sci-fi. The book takes place on a cavern filled planet where our characters were stranded years ago after an attack from an alien species. They must constantly fend off attacks from the “Krell” and untangle the past - before they crashed. 9.5/10 would recommend too anyone.

Cfischbuch The sequel is in stores now! Hello Chapters Night. Hint. Hint. 2mo

I recently finished reading Nyxia Unleashed and it was the conclusion I‘ve always wanted for this series. The book wraps up as we see our heroes descend to Earth after their final battle with Babel. The ending to this series was the best and tidy wrap-up us fans needed, with the right amount of mystery and the thought of the unknown to keep us thinking, even after we‘ve read the last word. I would 8/10 recommend this series to any sci-fi lover.

A short read but a great one! I‘ve always been a fan of lemony and this book just adds to my eternal love for him :P. I really enjoyed the orchestral music that went along with this, it added a whole new layer to what would be a simple picture book! Super excited to go meet Lemony Snicket in real life!

MrsBabki Ahhhhhh! I need you to pick something of his for me to read before October 2! 4mo

I love the cover for this book! It suits the futuristic tone of the book so well! And the sentinels suit on the left? Love it! How‘s the book going you ask? Great! Read it! (I‘m realizing as I proof read this how hyper I sound)

Cfischbuch I think I was kinda that way too! It was really, really good! 4mo

Renegades | Marissa Meyer

Hey litsiers! (Is that what we call ourselves???) Sorry for being inactive lately, but do not fear fellow litsiers (I'm going with that now) for I have been reading over the summer! I've finished a lot of great reads, such as Nyxia Unleashed and Steelheart! Sticking with this superpowers theme, I'm reading Renegades, which is going a bit slow, but I'll let y'all know how it went when I finish!

LibrarianRyan Very cool. Most people use Littens. But hey what ever works. 4mo

I thought he was done. I thought that after Never Say Die we would say our final goodbyes to Alex and move on. Nope! I was wrong!

LibrarianRyan yep. Took a while, but Horowitz decided to write more. 6mo

Done Nyxia! What a great read! Loved the sci fi atmosphere with the element of competition! No time for a break though, my stack beside my bed keeps growing.

MrsBabki Did you not find the competition long and drawn out? 6mo

Illuminae | Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff
Pickpick

Summary: After the colony of Kerenza IV is attacked by a BeiTech, tech genius Kady Grant, and ex-boyfriend Ezra Mason are stranded aboard two different escape ships, science vessel Hypatia, and UTA dreadnought Alexander. Pursued by BeiTech warship Lincoln, it's a frantic race to Jump Station Heimdall, a journey no one is sure they can make. This review is original and in my own words.

Cfischbuch It truly is a page turner. Full of action, suspense and intrigue. I hope your summary / review tempts other readers. 7mo

I would like to introduce you to the first book in the Illuminae series, Illuminae. This book is written in the style of text messages, documents, transcripts, and everyone's favourite murderous artificial intelligence , AIDEN. This book is so amazing and I very highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great read! Don't let the thickness of this book turn you away, you'll be missing out! Going to give a summary in a separatepost read it!

Did y'all here about the hunger games prequel? My guess is it's going to be about the dark days of Panem. What do you think?

MrsBabki What - no? Are you speaking the truth? 7mo
