I like repetitive dystopian YA novels as much as the next person. Scratch that, I like them even better, however, when I'm promised a Battle Royale meets Lost I get to say I'm somewhat disappointed with what I got. Let's start with the good thing: I found it to be an incredibly fast read, and ther...

This review was originally posted on One Curvy BloggerWarning: If you have not read Nil, I do not recommend reading Nil Unlocked until you have. While the story would work okay as a stand alone, its best to experience this story as a sequel as some of the important aspects of the setting will probab...

This review was originally posted on One Curvy BloggerI knew this book would be hard to put down, but I never thought it would get so creepy so fast. Not sure why, since Nil is not only an eery non-existent island that kills you in 365 days. Of course it would be creepy! Fair warning readers: do not...

You’re fortunate enough to land on this beautiful tropical island but unlucky enough to be one of the ones chosen to be a part of Nil. I thought there would be so much more to this book as I loved The Lord of the Flies and teens arriving on a strange island sounded like a great synopsis to me. I was...

I started reading this one back in October and finally gave up on it. Six months is more than long enough to waste on a book that I can't get into.

"If you want, I’ll finish combing your hair.” I stared at his outstretched hand, totally floored. I loved getting my hair brushed. More than getting my back scratched, more than getting a massage, more than anything, and I’d always dreamed about having a cute boy brush my hair. Thad had just serv...

Oh my goodness!! This book!!! What a ride! The suspense, the mystery, the romance...I just couldn't get enough. From the get go you are caught up in the question "What is NIL?" and you feel like you're in a whirlwind until the very end. The writing was very well done, I could feel the sun on my skin...

The premise of this one was right up my alley: teens trapped on a mysterious island, given only 365 days to find their gate to return to their world. The book totally delivered. (And huge cheer that it is a stand-alone with a great, satisfying ending)Serious page-turner, was hard to put down.
