Wires and Nerve, Volume 2: Going Rogue by Marissa Meyer | Review

Review: WIRES and NERVE, Vol 2: Going Rogue Warning: this review will have some spoilers for Marissa Meyer’s other Lunar Chronicles books (Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter, Fairest, Stars Above, Wires and Nerve, Vol 1), so if you haven’t read those and you want to, please skip! I was totally excited for the second volume in Marissa Meyer’s Wires and Nerve graphic novel. If you missed the first one, Wires and Nerve is part of the Lunar Chronicles series and focuses on the android Iko, who is Cinder’s best friend. In this installment, Iko is working with Liam Kinney, a Lunar […]

Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 by Marissa Meyer and Douglas Holgate | Waiting on Wednesday

If you know me, you know I’m a huge The Lunar Chronicles fan. Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter are on my list of best YA sci-fi ever. (I also really loved Fairest and Stars Above!). Marissa Meyer is a master at blending young adult feels with spaceships, misfits, and fairy tales. I was so excited to find out that we’d be hearing more from one of my favorite characters in the Lunar Chronicles, Iko the android, via this new graphic novel, Wires and Nerve. In the novels, I loved how well Meyer managed to blend Iko’s fun personality with the unique issues that come […]

| Giveaway + Review | Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Guys, I am SO excited to be able to give you this review of Stars Above by Marissa Meyer. Last week, I got the most amazing news: Fierce Reads and Raincoast Books (distributor of tons of amazing books in Canada, including Macmillan titles) were sending me a bound galley copy of STARS ABOVE! To say I was excited is a complete understatement. There was much screaming and dancing around in my house because I really, REALLY needed a few extra chapters at the end of Winter. I needed to make sure my babies were still okay =P In addition, Fierce Reads […]

The Lunar Chronicles | Series Wrap-Up, Cress & Fairest Reviews!

Hi guys! Yesterday you saw my review of Winter, the final book in Marissa Meyer’s epic The Lunar Chronicles series. Today, I’m back today with two mini-reviews of Cress or Fairest, which I never got around to reviewing, followed by my series wrap-up with some of my favourites (book, couple, characters, etc)! Check it out below: The Rapunzel-like Cress lives alone in a satellite where she uses her genius hacking skills to help Levana – but is desperate to defy her. Cress is incredibly capable and hilariously fangirlish, a dreamer who has always had a crush on Carswell Thorne, a […]

[No Spoilers] Review | Winter by Marissa Meyer

Review: Spoilers for Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress in this review, but NO SPOILERS for Winter. I can’t tell you really ANYTHING that happens in this Winter because it’s all so damn glorious and if you haven’t read the other books, it just won’t make sense anyway. It’s like going into Return of the Jedi never having seen Luke Skywalker struggle with The Force. This book does not even pretend that you haven’t read the rest of The Lunar Chronicles – in fact, it demands that you read the others. And let’s face it, you wouldn’t be picking up the 800+ page […]

Audiobook Narrators: Are You Picky As I Am?

Audiobook Narrators: Are You Picky As I Am?

Guys, am I the only one who is extremely and utterly picky about who narrates my books to me? So lately I’ve been really on the audiobook train. It used to be that I couldn’t “read” audiobooks unless they were books I’d already read (e.g. Harry Potter). But I’ve been finding it incredibly soothing to get things read to me. And audiobooks are especially helpful if I’m doing something boring like dishes or laundry and I just need to get it done, but I don’t want to waste precious reading time. That said…it takes a lot for me to borrow, […]
