All her life Fern has been told she is blind to reality—but, what if she is the only one who can truly see?

Title of Book: Project Mnemsoyne

Author: Kim Frauli

Release Date: January 4, 2017

Genre: Science-Fiction / Dystopia

Series: When No One Was Looking, Book 1

The author, Kim Frauli, has been so kind to offer a free e-book copy of her book for all of my lovely readers. I recently read this so I think you guys may be interested in this. It wasn’t my favorite because there are a few kinks that I personally think the author needs to work on, but otherwise, I really enjoyed it. It is clean, wholesome, and perfect for the whole family. Certain aspects of this novel reminded me of Divergent. This isn’t a review so that’s all I am going to say about it other than the book summary below. Although, I may review it later on for the blog.

Be sure to check out my review for the previous books here.

Have you ever felt such sadness when a series you’ve come to love has finally come to an end? Well, that’s the case with this. “The Returning” is the third and final installment of The Seers Trilogy. This wasn’t Rachelle Dekker’s, daughter of Ted Dekker,best work. While I have mixed feelings (you’ll see why later), it was an excellent wrap up. Read the rest of this entry

When I first picked this up, I wasn’t sure what to think. It sounded like a really interesting read, but it is one of the most hyped up books EVER. Everyone has been telling me I have to read this and it’s constantly showing up in my Instagram newsfeed. The cover for the hardback is also super cool. While it took a little bit for me to enjoy it, I have to say that I LOVED THIS BOOK! Read the rest of this entry

Let’s just be honest, I was automatically drawn in by the cover. It’s gorgeous and makes you wonder what it’s about. I enjoy books that have young teens feeling different from the world and discovering they have powers. Lost in Thought is very different from most books because while it does take place at a boarding school with teens who have too much freedom and money, that isn’t the sole purpose of the book.

Series: Remnants, Book Three

Perhaps you’ve come across this series and are wondering if you should read this. The answer is simple: YES!

Fans of dystopian novels such as The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Gifting, or The Seers trilogy will gobble this one up. Lisa T. Bergren is one of my absolute favorite authors so I am beyond ecstatic to be sharing my review with you all.

I enjoyed the first two books, although it’s been awhile since I’ve read them so I forgot a lot of what occurred previously. You’ll definitely want to read these in order or you’ll be completely lost. Not only did I enjoy the first two, but this last novel completely blew me away. Read the rest of this entry
