The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – Book & Movie Review

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – Book & Movie Review

You know when you finish a book and it leaves you without an impression? That’s how I feel about The 5th Wave. It was actually quite a long and convoluted book, with many varying points of views (some completely unnecessary and which did not impact the story at all). But upon finishing, I didn’t get the answers […]

Author Interview & Review: The Bureau of Time by Brett Michael Orr

You know what’s refreshing about The Bureau of Time? It doesn’t overcomplicate the time travel or the sci-fi. Timewalking, mutated genes and temporal shifts may be hard to grasp if it’s info dumped, but the whole concept behind the powers were integrated flawlessly into the book. New concepts are revealed on a need to know basis, and it doesn’t […]
