“Was there really so much hatred in the universe, so much prejudice, even among people who claimed to be unbiased? Had this always been true?”
Wow, this was... unexpected. I don't know about you, but these days I don't have very high hopes when it comes to the latest YA Fantasy/Sci-fi with a pre...

This book is B-A-D-A-S-S. It's like Game of Thrones in space and IDK why I have to say more than that but I will: it's like ARYA STARK from Game of Thrones in space. Rhee is a total badass and I will follow her badassery and determination across every sky.

This was a super fast read but it was almost rushed. I was very confused and bored quite frankly for the majority of it. I felt like the story wasn't very well fleshed out. It had tons of potential but just ended up falling flat. The characters were flat as well. I just didn't connect with th...

This was one of my first space operas. What an entertaining genre. Strangely enough, melodrama is more fun in outer space, go figure.
There isn’t anything original about the plot: it’s about a princess whose parents were murdered, ready to seek vengeance on the murderer. I’m feeling underwhelmed b...

4.5 stars. I'm usually not that into sci-fi, but had so much fun with this one!! Maybe because it still felt like YA fantasy... but in space. The worldbuilding was super interesting & original (like how most people store their memories in cubes that the government can potentially overwrite),...

Ugh. I'm torn; parts of my loved this and parts of me were bored to tears. I decided on a 3 star, middle ground "I liked it but it didn't blow me away" rating. I may try to read this again when the second book comes out to see if I like it more at a better time, but it was somewhat predictable (w...

TW - Racist slurs (which are challenged and condemned, and do not come from the main characters)
Leave me alone. I'm innocent, he repeated to himself. I did nothing wrong.
Let's get this out of the way : yes, space princesses who seek revenge aren't new to the game. Yes, one cannot really prais...

“Had she even ever bothered to find out?”
Am I being too harsh on this? Probably. But try to put up with all the things I'm going to list down below, and then we'll see who's the saint here.
→ Rhiannon is a brat, and I'm not even a bit sorry people won't let her forget it. In spi...

She is finally turning sixteen in a week meaning she's coming of age and can take her throne. The only thing standing in her way is the v...

Going in, I legit thought this book was going to be another over-the-top, dystopian, love triangle, tragedy that leaves me in tears from boredom and forced angst.
THANK GOODNESS I WAS SO BLOODY WRONG.
- Interesting, unique expression of a commonly used idea/plot
- Dual povs
- Alyosha is my...
