GRAVITY BUSTERS: JOURNAL #2 OF A CARDBOARD GENIUS by Frank Asch
Gravity Buster: Journal 2 of a Cardboard Genius (Journals of a Cardboard Genius) - Frank Asch

Alex improves his Star Jumper and it is bigger and better than ever.  But he knows he still has a few more inventions to make to ensure success as he goes into space, hopefully with Zoe as his co-pilot.  He needs an anti-gravity belt so the gravity differences between planets can be handled by his body.  He also needs a way to restrict Jonathan's spying and getting in the way. 

 

I love this series.  Alex's asides and explanations as he tells the story have me laughing out loud.  He is a riot.  The drawings that illustrate what he means are great.  Alex and Jonathan are so realistic.  I cannot wait to read book 3.  This is so much fun!

Audio Book Review: Gravity (Mageri #4) By Dannika Dark
Gravity - Dannika Dark

 

This is the first novel in this series that I enjoyed. The first half was h*ll to get through, but it did give me a new respect for Logan. Don't get me wrong, Silver was still annoying and made bad decisions, but it was better than the last three novels.

 

It feels like the first half of this novel could have been solved through a text message or Silver writing on a piece of paper what was happening and trying to figure it all out with everyone's help. As you'll soon find out everything hit the fan either way in the middle of the novel. It was all very frustrating seeing a way out, but having the character play the long game and suffering for no apparent reason.

 

Silver seems to be trying the learn from past mistakes, but still finds it in herself to come up with idiotic 'plans' (if you can call spur of the moment ideas a 'plan'). I did find myself rolling my eyes way less times during this book when compared to the last three novels. I can see she's evolving, but we're on the fourth book in the series shouldn't this have already happened by now?

 

After everything Silver dealt to Logan he's earned my respect. I also commend him for staying with her. He's also managed to get his anger management issues under control in just under half a novel. I like the change, but it didn't feel genuine. It felt like one beautiful day a literal switch just flipped and here's the new and improved Logan. It also seemed as if his domineering and controlling nature had been toned down and I approve.

 

I LOVED the Justus side story. I wish it had been a bigger part of the novel. No, I take that back. I wish he had his own separate novel/series so we could get to know him a little bit more. His story also seemed rushed, probably due to the fact that it was embedded in Silver's main story.

 

Overall, this was the best book in this series so far. For the sake of ending the story I will be reading the last book. After the events of this novel, I guess I'm somewhat rooting for Silver and Logan. They just deserve each other by this point.

 

The Audio Book:

 

 

The narration was awesome. I enjoy Nicole Poole's variety in tones and accents. I could tell all character's apart during the narration.

Grapes and Gravity (Violet Visions) Viola Grace Review
Grapes and Gravity (Violet Visions) - Viola Grace

Stuck as a prize in the arena, Tara discovers there are worse things than being ignored. Being chosen is one of them.


Tara, a crashed pilot, has spent months being waved in front of the arena fighters as a pleasure option. There have been no takers.

The day that a fighter looks at her and promises to make her his, Tara’s life freezes. She watches him fight and wants him to win, but is terrified of the consequences if he does.

Galeno has no interest in the arena. His sole interest is in the soft female sitting on the podium. She is his and it will be a short time before she knows it.

 

Review

 

 

A fun science fiction short story with a rescue and a good fight and sexy times.
