Pale Highway ★★★★☆

4 stars

I really enjoy reading science fiction and this book was no exception. I found the entire idea of a man with Alzheimer’s trying to cure a virus incredibly interesting and wasted no time tearing through the book, trying to figure out if he could actually do it.

Ensnared ★★★☆☆

3 stars

Oh my gosh this book was so cute, especially the ending. I wasn’t really that into the book in the beginning but once certain things started happening I just couldn’t stop reading. This was a very cute and fast read and that’s the only reason I’m giving it 3 stars. There was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn’t mind-blowing or anything. It was a cute contemporary read, plain and simple. This book comes out December 18th and I’m excited to see it in the bookstore.

Red Rising ★★★★★

5 stars 

So I no longer want to write incredibly long reviews so this will be the first to reflect that change. 

I loved loved loved this book. I read it every night before going to bed and towards the last few chapters, it was a persistent thought in my mind. I had heard about this book for a few months before I bought it but then it just sat on my bookshelf until I picked it up about a week ago and I’m very happy that I did.

Plus One ★★★★☆

This book was so good I’m honestly so upset that there isn’t going to be a sequel.  I read this book over the course of two days and that is only because I had so much work to catch up on. This book sucked me in though, ended up keeping me awake till 2am on a weekday.

Goodreads Summary:

A dying wish. A family divided. A love that defies the law.

Sol Le Coeur is a Smudge–a night dweller in an America rigidly divided between people who wake, live, and work during the hours of darkness and those known as Rays, who live and work during daylight. Impulsive, passionate, and brave, Sol concocts a plan to kidnap her newborn niece–a Ray–in order to bring the baby to visit her dying grandfather. Sol’s violation of the day/night curfew is already a serious crime, but when her kidnap attempt goes awry, she stumbles on a government conspiracy to manipulate the Smudge population. Sol escapes the authorities with an unexpected ally: a Ray who gets in her way, a boy she might have hated if fate hadn’t forced them on the run together–a boy the world now tells her she can’t love.

Set in a vivid alternate reality and peopled with complex, deeply human characters on both sides of the day/night divide, Elizabeth Fama’s Plus One is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights, and a fast-paced romantic adventure story.

Review:

I loved the plot of this book and the way the topic of having the day/night curfews was conveyed. It could have been a lot more confusing then it ended up being, and for that I am grateful. The author created complex characters that felt real, they reacted to situations like 18 year olds would. I’ve read multiple books where the characters either fell flat, or they didn’t seem like real people because of how they would react/respond to situations they were put in.
