Book Review: ASHES by Ilsa J. Bick

Rating: 5 stars Over the weekend I read Ilsa J. Bick’s post apocalyptic/thriller/horror mash-up, ASHES.

Her writing is the perfect balance of giving the reader a clear picture of… Continue reading Book Review: ASHES by Ilsa J. Bick

Book Review: AWAKEN by Katie Kacvinsky

Recently I picked up a copy of Katie Kacvinsky’s debut, AWAKEN. And holy BEJESUS I loved it. She created a world that really isn’t that different from how we live today. It’s chilling, and amazing. My sister and I were discussing how strange it is to actually pick up the phone and call someone. Which… Continue reading Book Review: AWAKEN by Katie Kacvinsky
