    A visual representation of me trying to figure out how to write this review: In all seriousness, this might be one of the most difficult books I?ve had to review, simply because I have so many thoughts. So many different aspects to a novel as complicated and nuanced as this ...

    Update 9/24: I've noticed a lot of discussion about the racial representation & themes of colonialism in this book and I believe this review started said discussion: http://bit.ly/2fpXO6X I don't really have anything to say on this topic, especially considering I didn't finish the...

    As one of Tristina Wright's beta readers, I've had the honor and privilege of seeing this story in multiple stages. It has come a long way since the first version I read, and there have been some fundamental plot changes along with little tweaks here and there. But in every form its ta...

    [Edit: February 12th, 2018] I had given this three stars back in 2017, but I no longer can support this author or their work in light of recent events. I am keeping my original review up, but please know that I do not support this author or their inexcusable actions. If anyone needs me...

    ***I receive many communications telling me that the author was sending people to flag reviews because she has pulled a Donald Trump and is calling it a fake review because it does not meet her liking. I am not affiliated with the people harassing anyone. I do not own a Twitter. My opi...

    update feb 11, 2018: There is nothing I can say to take back the fact that I stood up for this author, that I went to bat for her endlessly and took her side of the story over other sides I was presented with. I can't take any of that back. All I can do is say that, if I ever made you...

    From the diverse, inclusive cast to the non-stop intense action to the visually lush world-building, Tristina Wright's debut has everything I look for in a great YA novel. And I truly can't wait for her second book. While reading, I kept thinking how this book read like the best vid...

    EDITED 2/24: I fucked up. I also should have edited this in the fall (when I pulled my stars from it) when I read many wonderful and extremely well-constructed critiques of this book. I did not see the racism in it, and I'm sorry for that. I am striving to do better, and I know that th...

    EDIT: Since @nickyoflaherty and others have been tweeting about this and accusing me of lying and faking this review asking for it to be flagged because they don't like that someone didn't like the book and can't stand anyone who goes against their grain, I'm happy to discuss who I got...

    27 HOURS by Tristina Wright has everything I could ever want in a YA scifi novel ? a visually stunning foreign planet, human space colonies, a fascinating indigenous alien race (LOVE that horns figure into the alien hierarchy), SPACE DRAGONS (with 6 legs!), and action that starts rig...

    I spend three months trying to pretend I hadn?t lost all interest in this book after the author was accused of 1) harassing a reviewer i trust and 2) having some shit in her book. because I had finally won a preorder giveaway!! and then this author gets accused of sexual harassment a...

    whoops i should've added this since last year ahhhhh cuz i was blessed to read an early copy of it and then another revised copy as well but the release is soooooon (October) so here i am to flail about iiiiiit. It's so good ya'll. The world Tris has created is unique and so vivid a...

    I lost my first review to internet crashing, that's cool. Here is a shorter version. 27 Hours was never meant for me as a book, and part of the low star rating reflects that. It might be better for you, but I could never get into : - All the violence. This is a book about teens who...

    This might be my favorite 2017 release yet. Pre-order it and put it on you TBR if you haven't already! This book is simply phenomenal. ...

    EDIT: I think I'm officially lowering the rating to 2 stars, because the more I think about this book, the angrier I get lol. I originally said the lgbt rep was good, but a month later what stuck with me was the fact that the rep was presented so awkwardly/lowkey forced (as much as I h...

    ETA: the author has been outed as an abuser so I have removed my rating. My critical comments still stand. --- There are multiple issues that bother me about the setup and worldbuilding as well as the ace rep. The History I had a lot of unanswered questions about the history tha...

    I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange of an honest review Full review originally posted on my blog: Word Wonders I know I?ve probably said this before about other book reviews but this is honestly the hardest review I?ve had to write since I start...

    After some consideration, I have decided not to read this. I'm extremely grateful to Entangled Teen for providing me with an eARC via NetGalley. If I didn't have an eARC I wouldn't even be writing this review; I would just quietly remove the book from my kindle and my GR shelves. But I...

    I am admittedly disappointed and frustrated. On one hand, there is a lot of bi, gay, and trans rep in this -- which makes me super happy. No one is straight; it's Gays (and Bis and Lesbians) in Space. On the other we are presented a tale about a group of colonizers waging war ag...

    I lost my first review to internet crashing, that's cool. Here is a shorter version. 27 Hours was never meant for me as a book, and part of the low star rating reflects that. It might be better for you, but I could never get into : - All the violence. This is a book about teens who...

    This might be my favorite 2017 release yet. Pre-order it and put it on you TBR if you haven't already! This book is simply phenomenal. ...

    EDIT: I think I'm officially lowering the rating to 2 stars, because the more I think about this book, the angrier I get lol. I originally said the lgbt rep was good, but a month later what stuck with me was the fact that the rep was presented so awkwardly/lowkey forced (as much as I h...

    I am admittedly disappointed and frustrated. On one hand, there is a lot of bi, gay, and trans rep in this -- which makes me super happy. No one is straight; it's Gays (and Bis and Lesbians) in Space. On the other we are presented a tale about a group of colonizers waging war ag...

    As one of Tristina Wright's beta readers, I've had the honor and privilege of seeing this story in multiple stages. It has come a long way since the first version I read, and there have been some fundamental plot changes along with little tweaks here and there. But in every form its ta...

    [Edit: February 12th, 2018] I had given this three stars back in 2017, but I no longer can support this author or their work in light of recent events. I am keeping my original review up, but please know that I do not support this author or their inexcusable actions. If anyone needs me...

    update feb 11, 2018: There is nothing I can say to take back the fact that I stood up for this author, that I went to bat for her endlessly and took her side of the story over other sides I was presented with. I can't take any of that back. All I can do is say that, if I ever made you...

    From the diverse, inclusive cast to the non-stop intense action to the visually lush world-building, Tristina Wright's debut has everything I look for in a great YA novel. And I truly can't wait for her second book. While reading, I kept thinking how this book read like the best vid...

    EDITED 2/24: I fucked up. I also should have edited this in the fall (when I pulled my stars from it) when I read many wonderful and extremely well-constructed critiques of this book. I did not see the racism in it, and I'm sorry for that. I am striving to do better, and I know that th...

    I lost my first review to internet crashing, that's cool. Here is a shorter version. 27 Hours was never meant for me as a book, and part of the low star rating reflects that. It might be better for you, but I could never get into : - All the violence. This is a book about teens who...

    This might be my favorite 2017 release yet. Pre-order it and put it on you TBR if you haven't already! This book is simply phenomenal. ...

    EDIT: I think I'm officially lowering the rating to 2 stars, because the more I think about this book, the angrier I get lol. I originally said the lgbt rep was good, but a month later what stuck with me was the fact that the rep was presented so awkwardly/lowkey forced (as much as I h...
