Read-Along of Ruined (Ruined #1) by Amy Tintera

I’ve actually read something by this author before, about a year or so ago: Reboot, the first book of two in a Sci-Fi/Dystopian Duology. The writing itself was a grade above the average YA Sci-Fi at the time, but the story at it’s core — a girl changing/discovering emotions through a boy’s influence — was painfully conventional. 460 more words

Read-Along of Company Town by Madeline Ashby

This one certainly sounds interesting and potentially low on romance, but while the world and concept sound interesting, the plot — something about an invisible serial killer whose clues/traces lead back to the main character — sounds a bit mundane. 727 more words

Let's Read! Dune, Part Five

These last few chapters of Book One are a welcome payoff after the first third of the book was spent so much on occasionally-interminable-feeling exposition and set-up. 924 more words

Let's Read! Dune, Part Four

I feel as if I could just title all of these posts so far “Duke Leto Deathwatch 2016” considering the amount of time I spend speculating on the time and manner and necessity of the Duke’s demise. 825 more words

Let's Read! Dune, Part Three

I’m starting to worry that finishing Dune is going to be more of a chore than I originally anticipated, to be honest. It’s a novel that I think would be fine if I could sit and just devour it in a single sitting, but taking the time to do a close(ish) reading of it only highlights its flaws, the greatest of which, so far, is that very little has actually happened yet. 835 more words

Let's Read! Dune, Part Two

I was certain that this section of the book would have a lot more going on than the first few chapters, but that isn’t actually the case. 1,180 more words
