The super volcano has erupted and we are six months later. It feels like so much has happened that it can't be just that short of a period. Survival is hell, folks.
The ashen winter has set in and it's never frigging ever warm. (Smart reading when it's cold as hell outside)
Alex and Darl...

Let me tell you guys, if a supervolcano ever erupts and world as we know it comes to an end, I want Darla by my side 24/7. That said, I postponed writing this review for as long as I could because it was hard to pin down exactly why Ashen Winter didn’t work for me as well as Ashfall did. It’s sti...

Ashfall - one of my favourite books of all time - could not have had a better sequel in Ashen Winter. Picking up 6 months after Ashfall's ending, we are thrown into a deep desolation; the dark, cold aftermath of a Supervolcano eruption.
Alex and Darla, the fabulous couple who met in Ashfall are le...

That was exhausting. I am tired, annoyed, frustrated, and hugely disappointed. Writing a review for this one is gonna hurt.
My problems with this second installment of Mike Mullin's Ashfall series are many I'm afraid to say, and too big to ignore. I really like this guy, and I wanted this nov...

I don't hand out five stars very easily anymore. Years ago, I wasn't as picky, but now it's rare to never that I find a book worthy of the 5 STAR label.
It's special...like me!
Ashen Winter is one of those few books that is so freakin' awesome it actually deserves the whole five. Have you read Ash...

The ARC of this book was provided to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I started reading Ashfall before going to bed. That was a BIG mistake. I ended up being up all night reading. And, not satisfied with looking at the sun coming up while tired as hell, I just couldn't stop. So,...

I'm so far behind in reviewing books I've read. This might not sound like the end of the world, but it's the only way that I have a chance to remember what I've read and what I thought of for at least some of the books I've read a year or two down the road. For example, today someone voted on a r...

Buddy read with Amy, Melissa, and Sarah!
Not quite as good as the first one but still immensely enjoyable and compulsively readable (god I sound like one of those starred reviews from Kirkus or Booklist or whoever). Anyway, don't be discouraged by the size of these books. The chapters a...

First, I'd like to apologise for cussing out Mr. Mullin's name for the first third of the book. I told myself it was only a book but it got to me. Action, terror and death almost from the very first page. I was on edge, longing to shout at Alex to shut up and listen to his woman. I decided to go...
