Military Sci-Fi bingo card

I need to try to remember this, next time I read one of the military sci-fi books in my collection. Many of which are published by Baen, so that's a square right there. "Detailed descriptions of guns" might also make for a good square.

Top Ten Tuesday | Our Outer Space Favorites


Top Ten Tuesday is a list based meme hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's Top Ten Tuesday was open-ended, so we here at Crazy for YA decided to take it in a direction we find is rare in YA--to outer space! Because interplanetary exploration is slightly rare in YA novels these days, we may have recommended slightly fewer than 10 books this week, but all of our recommendations feature some of the most unique YA settings out there.

The Hatching Review!
The Hatching: A Novel - Ezekiel Boone



Thank you to NetGalley and Atria Books for providing an ebook copy of The Hatching By: Ezekiel Boone in exchange for an honest review!


So let me begin this review by saying that I am terrified of all bugs and insects. Including spiders. SO why did I pick The Hatching to read? Because I love horror. I love to be creeped out and scared. As long as creepy crawlies stay away from me in real life.


The Hatching takes a little bit of time to set up, but then it gets good. Really good. This is not the most action packed novel, but what action it has really makes an impression. For example some parts had me screaming, "Ahhh and Ewww and No, no, oh my god, no!" If spiders creep you out at all then this book will terrify you. I saw a small spider in the house later that night when I finished this book and I almost just decided to set the house on fire.


My skin is crawling even just writing this review. I had no idea that it was possible to be even more terrified of spiders. I don't think that The Hatching will be everyone's brand of horror, but I think the apocalyptic and sci-fi side will attract a lot of fans as well. The style of the novel kind of reminded me of World War Z (which I didn't finish because that one bored me to tears and I tried twice), but it worked for this book. It has multiple POV's that it follows, but not too many so that it's hard to keep up with. I liked most of the characters, but I do have to say that Mike and Melanie are my favorites.


Overall The Hatching is a book that creeped me the hell out. It's an engaging read and written very well. This book will leave you feeling uneasy and creeped out, even if you don't have arachnophobia. I hate spiders, but I loved this novel and I can't wait for the sequel!


I recommend The Hatching for fans of World War Z and for horror loving arachnophobes. My husband is also frightened of spiders and by the end of the book I kept telling him that he has to read this!

S.Y.P.H.E.N. - Cortez Law III

Title: S.Y.P.H.E.N.
Author: Cortez Law III
Publisher: Metro Black & Blue
Review By: Arlena Dean
Rating: Four

"S.Y.P.H.E.N." by Cortez Law III

My Thoughts....

This was definitely a different kind of read for me but it was a interesting thriller read especially if you are interested in anti terrorist operations that take place on United States soil. The solving of this 'personal mystery' soon gets the attention of Lincoln Boddies...that will bring him to believe 'He's staring at a pair of potential suicide bombers. This author really gives the readers quite a 'Zero Dark with a Sci-Fi twist' of a read as this unit is lead to some 'old and new Islamic enemies of the state' ....resulting to a plan to will have America destroyed.' Will this 'Delta Force, Al-Qaeda and Islamic State of Iraq and ISIS members be able to get ahead of this whole situation in this 'inescapable trap...the S.Y.P.H..E.N? Will this patriotic hero be able to save his family and country? To get these answers and so much more you will have to pick up this novel and follow along as this author will bring it all out to the readers.
