Review: The Thousandth Floor (The Thousandth Floor #1)by Katharine McGee
The Thousandth Floor - Katharine McGee

Syno

 

 

New York City as you’ve never seen it before. A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible—if you want it enough.

Welcome to Manhattan, 2118.

A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. But people never change: everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose.

Leda Cole’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.

Eris Dodd-Radson’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.

Rylin Myers’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one?

Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.

And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Debut author Katharine McGee has created a breathtakingly original series filled with high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, where the impossible feels just within reach. But in this world, the higher you go, the farther there is to fall….

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

This book was way different from what I normally read, which why I kind of picked it. I needed a short break in my normal genre. And honestly it was like reading a soap opera, with all the different over the top lifestyles and drama and angst. This book packed full of teem drama and angst. The writing was fun and easy to follow and honestly one of the reason I stayed with the book, even with all the drama and angst that made me roll my eyes more than once or even twice lol. We follow few people in this book, from the rich spoiled kids from the most upper floors all the way down to the lower and poor people floors. Some lose their money in the story others gain access to the upper levels and then some are just shady. I think all the different people, personalities and voices made it just so much more fun to follow along. I also liked the future tech we get in this book, but sometimes it was just a bit too focused on that and not the people and it got a bit too much. Not sure yet if it just was because it’s the first book in the series and introduces us to the tech or if that will stay that way. I guess I will find out in the next book. Overall, not the greatest book but fun and interesting enough to keep me reading it, all the drama helped too. I will continue on the series to see how it all turns out for them.

I rate it 3 ★

Review: Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer
Winter (The Lunar Chronicles) - Marissa Meyer

Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mark her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won't approve of her feelings for her childhood friend--the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer's national bestselling Lunar Chronicles series

What a wonderful journey this series was and this book gave it a great ending.

While Winter was my least favorite princess, I still loved this book.

It all comes together in this one and we have never a dull moments as all out players are busy on working to defeating Levina in some way or another.

This being the last book I don’t want to give away too much and spoil it for the few that have not read this wonderful series.

This book was jammed full of action and suspense and had me sitting on the edge if my seat many times throughout the series, there were even times I didn’t know if all our people will make it.

Overall I thought it was a great book and a perfect way to end the series.

I rate it a full 5 ★ and highly recommend this series.

Review: Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil (Flynn Nightsider #1) by Mary Fan
Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil - Mary Fan

Break the enchantments. Find the truth. Ignite the revolution.

A century ago, the Enchanters defeated the evil Lord of the Underworld, but not before he’d unleashed his monsters and ravaged the earth. The Enchanters built the Triumvirate out of what remained of the United States, demanding absolute obedience in exchange for protection from the lingering supernatural beasts.

Sixteen-year-old Flynn Nightsider, doomed to second-class life for being born without magic, knows the history as well as anyone. Fed up with the Triumvirate’s lies and secrecy, he longs for change. And when he stumbles across a clue that hints at something more – secrets in the dark, the undead, and buried histories – he takes matters into his own hands.

Before long, Flynn finds himself hunted not only by the government, but also by nightmarish monsters and a mysterious man with supernatural powers … all seeking him for reasons he cannot understand. Rescued by underground rebels, he’s soon swept up in their vision of a better world, guided by a girl as ferocious as the monsters she fights. But as the nation teeters on the brink of revolution, Flynn realizes three things.

The rebellion is not what it seems.

Flynn himself might be more than he seems.

And the fate of the world now rests in his hands.

 

 

 

 

 *I won a hardcover copy from the author and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

This review will be specifically for the Hardcover copy.

 I normally don’t comment or take the condition of the book itself into the review unless it effects my reading experience and that it sadly did.

I’m not sure if it was just a bad copy or if all the hardcover copies of this book are like that. But mine had a terrible binding job. The pages just started falling out, which saddens me even more since it was signed. But it got so bad that at the end I was afraid to turn the page in fear it also would fall out. And no it was not me I have books that are super old and reread several times and they don’t lose pages by just turning them.

That being said and other than the fear of keep losing pages I really liked the book. I loved the writing, the story and Characters. I thought it was original and fresh and also super fun to follow. I enjoyed the world building and more so the characters.

So this could or would have been and easy 4-5 star read for me BUT sadly the condition of the book hinder me greatly enjoying it even more.

So I can only give it 3★

Review: Nightchaser (Endeavor #1) by Amanda Bouchet
Nightchaser - Amanda Bouchet

 

A delicious new heart-pounding romantic adventure from USA Today bestseller Amanda Bouchet!

Captain Tess Bailey and her crew of Robin Hood-like thieves are desperate and on the run. Pursued by a vicious military general who wants them dead or alive, Tess has to decide if she can trust Shade Ganavan, a tall, dark and arrogant stranger with ambiguous motivations.

Shade Ganavan had oodles of arrogance, oodles of charm, and oodles of something that made me want to kick him in the nuts.

What Tess and Shade don’t know about each other might get them killed…unless they can set aside their differences and learn to trust each other—while ignoring their off-the-charts chemistry.

 

 

 

 

 

*I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 1 ½ ★----  DNFed at 47%

 

 

When I saw this and got approved for it on Netgalley I was super excited. Even when I started reading, it really started out good……….

But sadly after about 12% in, it went downhill, and when I say downhill I mean a steeeeeppppp hill.  Pretty much when she meets the main love interest, it goes downhill. Tess just becomes sooo dumb and oh so weak in the knees and pretty much just lusts after him all this time. 

You would think all that is bad enough but that is not all, the story is completely taken over by the romance….. Shane our main guy seems more douche than alpha hero and sometimes felt forced to be macho funny. The same for Tess.. She also felt forced at times and there is  not much to her, very blah and two dimensional and flat. The only thing I enjoyed about her was her friendship with her crew.

A lot of the story felt like a filler, and most of it didn’t even make sense really, people disappear and reappear for no reason, other parts of the story are thrown in and make no sense whatsoever.

And yes I only read 47% of the book and then cheated and read the last few chapters, well everything I thought I figured out at 20 some percent was right, it was very predictable and again some things didn’t even make sense. Not because I didn’t read it all, no but because it didn’t fit into the main story arc.

Another thing for me personally was, the switching of POV. I love multiple povs in a book, what I don’t love is when they alternate between first and third person. Either it should be all in first person or all in third person, but that is just my personal preference.

Overall, I really wanted to like this book, I really did but I just couldn’t there are just way too many things that annoyed me that I couldn’t even really finish the book.

I hope that other people enjoy it more and can overlook some of the things.

I rate it 1 ½ ★

Review: Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi
Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi

 

The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love.”

With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end.

 

 

I can’t believe this is the end, well it was at the time the book was written now we get more books… YAY.

Being it the last book (again at the time) there is not too much I can say without spoiling it.

Again we get plenty of action, not as many shocking twists as book two but that is okay, it being the last book (at the time) .

What we do get again is character growth, just when you thought they are done they grow more and surprise you even sometimes.

The brewing war is upon is or nearly and the gang preps for it and even recruits some unlikely allies.

Juliette, really surprised me this book. She grew so much and she really became into her own. She became more confident and with that a little less annoying. She stood up and fought for others but most if all for herself. I really enjoyed her much more in this book than the two previous, she was even funny at times.

James, cute little James, the youngest, the most innocent, I think we will see more of him in now future books, I also think he has some kind of power.

Kenji still one of my favorite characters and I never can get enough of him. He makes this story entertaining and fun at times and always makes you smile.

Adam. OMG .Adam wins the most annoying character of the year in this book. I could not stand him and he acted selfish and like a brat at times. Yes, he went through a lot and learned a lot shocking new things but so did everyone else and they didn’t act like him. I just wanted him to stay away.

Warren was also one of the most approved characters in the books, I loved him and his journey that was most defiantly not an easy one.  I loved that he fought for what he thought is right but still listen to others. He was just one of my favorite from book one, bad or not I just adored him.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and series a lot more than I thought and now that there will be more books, I most certainly will read them.

While I really enjoyed this book I thought the ending felt a bit rushed, I think a couple more chapters and less rushing would have made this even better.

I rate it 4 ★, was going to go with 5 ★but like I said the ending felt a bit to rushed.
