Book List: “Inside is Safe” Dystipias

Since I was twelve, I’ve loved all things dystopias. How dark can the future get? Okay, maybe today it’s more reality than science fiction but I still like reading them. Especially the kind were the government tries to keep you “inside” the community. Don’t go past the wall…there’s danger out there. And of course, it’s…… Continue reading Book List: “Inside is Safe” Dystipias

Book Lists: Royalty

Princesscore. Royalcore. Secret Heir. Secret Royal. Prince Charming. We’ve grown up with stories of princesses in locked towers and princes on white steeds. We’ve played video games where queens send us on quests or the royal princess is kidnapped by the beast. Naturally, we’d want to read books with these kind of archetypes–especially those that…… Continue reading Book Lists: Royalty

Book Review: Extasia by Claire Legrand (Katherine Tegan Books)

Dauntless…… Continue reading Books for Each Faction

In a society where women are oppressed and controlled and believed to possess magic, every girl must undergo the “grace…… Continue reading Book Review: The Grace Year by Kate Liggett (St. Martins)

Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (Harper Collins)

I’ve been putting off reading Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, published by HarperCollins, because it’s the beginning of the series and also because I have heard so many people complain about this book.

Book Lists: Conspiracy Theories

There are so many odd conspiracy theories in our world: The Royal Family are lizards. The moon landing was faked. Avril Lavigne is dead. The Illuminati controls us all. We’re in a simulation. Regardless on whether or not you believe this, even if they are a bit outlandish to me, I think we can all…… Continue reading Book Lists: Conspiracy Theories
