Mini Reviews

Mind Games by Teri Terry I read this book on the recommendations of a friend who found a few problems with it. It is a type of dystopian novel with a focus on the virtual world which I could see as a realistic development from out world. The end got a bit weird, and the [...]

Time Riders Series Review

The Time Riders series by Alex Scarrow is one that seems made for television.

Red Rising Review

Red Rising by Pierce Brown is the first novel in a trilogy. I have reviews of the other books Golden Son and Morning Star if you're interested. I quite enjoyed this book, although I found the first part difficult to get into. It is hard to know what genre to fit this book into. It has [...]
