CBA Discussion | Deciding What To Read

Posted September 13, 2013 by Christy / 9 Comments

I don’t know about you, but most of the time I have a hard time trying to choose what book to read next.  It usually takes me a while to decide if I should read a review book or if I should read one that has been sitting on my shelf for over a year?      Most of the time, I would decide to read one of my review booksbefore I would pick up one off of my TBR shelf, since I try to let my review books take priority over the books that I have purchased myself.  But I have been letting my review books take priority for so long that this has created kind of a problem for me.  […]

Book Review | Reboot by Amy Tintera

Book Review | Reboot by Amy Tintera

When I read the summary for Reboot I was pretty sure that I would like it.  But, I had no idea that I would love this book as much as I did, this is easily one of my favorites so far this year.  This story is so engrossing that once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down until the very last page. Five years ago at twelve years old, Wren Connolly was shot to death.  178 minutes later, she came back as a Reboot. Reboots are stronger, faster, more dangerous, and the only way that they can be killed is to destroy the brain.  The longer a reboot is dead the more likely that they won’t have any […]

Book Review | Steel Lily by Megan Curd

Book Review | Steel Lily by Megan Curd

    *I was provided a free copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review* When I get asked to review a book, the first thing I do is check out Goodreads to see if it sounds like something that I would like.  Needless to say, when I first read the summary for Steel Lily I was very intrigued since I am a huge fan of the dystopian genre.  And when I saw that Steel Lily is a dystopian book that centers on elementalists, it sealed the deal, I wanted to read this book. After World War III breaks out and destroys everything, Domes are formed by the Government.  The Domes are created for people […]
