Dystopian, Science Fiction

The Sky is Yours by Chandler Klang Smith

Science fiction is a genre that I really like and try to read often. When I heard the premise for this one, I thought it was absolutely perfect for me! Thanks to NetGalley, and Penguin Random House’s First to Read program for this eARC in exchange for my honest review. Summary (Goodreads): In the burned-out, futuristic city of Empire Island, three…

Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich

I’ve been hearing that this book is similar to The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. Well, that is one of my favourite books of all time, so you know I’m going to be interested in any novel connected to it! Compared to all of the other books on my TBR list, this looked like the shortest, and since I loved the…

Red Clocks by Leni Zumas

This book has been creating a buzz EVERYWHERE. Red Clocks is a novel that is perfectly matched for the political climate in America today, and the state of affairs when it comes to the legalization of abortion and the ease of getting this service. This novel has been compared to A Handmaid’s Tale, which is the first book that I read by…

The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey

I read The Girl with All the Gifts when it first came out and absolutely loved it. I even watched the movie version of it, which was really well done. However, I took a long time to get to this book. I finally popped by my local library and picked it up. And I’m so glad I did! Synopsis: This story takes…

Amatka by Karin Tidbeck

I received this novel as an advance copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. What I love about dystopian novels is that each is unique in the way they describe the destruction of the old world. Each one has its own take on the degradation that took place to create the world where the story exists. It means…

Tarry This Night by Kristyn Dunnion

I’m always fascinated by cults and I always grab any book that deals with this subject matter so that it might help me understand the mentality behind cults better. What could possess people to give everything up and believe in one person who claims they know the future? What could cause people to wholeheartedly give in to a completely different…

Gather the Daughters by Jennie Melamud

I’m going to start this review by giving a trigger warning: this novel deals with uncomfortable topics like incest and child abuse. Please keep that in mind if you are choosing to read this novel. With that, I’m going to start my review: Years ago, just before the country was incinerated to wasteland, 10 men took their families and colonized…

The End We Start From by Megan Hunter

I received this novel as an advanced copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I don’t know what is with this trend of giving vague blurbs for novels but it seems to be my weak spot! It’s probably because I love surprises so much … a book that doesn’t give me any clues is sure to surprise me!…

The History of Bees by Maja Lunde

I received this novel as an advanced copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. When I heard that this novel was being compared to Station Eleven, I knew I had to give it a shot. Station Eleven was a book I absolutely adored so I was hoping I would enjoy this one just as much. Here is my review: England,…
