Cover RevealThe cover reveal for:

Reconnaissance by Aubrie Dionne!

Reconnaissance is book two in the Paradise Reclaimed series.
I read and reviewed the first book in the series; Colonization, and I absolutely loved it! So I’m super excited for Reconnaissance!

Here is the gorgeous cover!
Reconnaissance by Aubrie Dionne

Nova Williams has lost her one shot at Lieutenant hood and at love. Lieutenant Crophaven has promoted her rival, Andromeda, all because her lifemate, Sirius, sacrificed their mission to win back Andromeda’s love.

While sneaking out to prove Andromeda is a fake, Nova finds an alien ship hovering over their colony. Lieutenant Crophaven assigns her to a reconnaissance mission, giving her a second chance to redeem herself. Sirius must fly her and a research team to the vessel to decide if they are a threat. Thrown together with the lifemate that betrayed her, she battles with her own jealousy while her team battles for their lives.

Can she forgive Sirius in order to save her team and warn her colony?

Eek, that sounds so exciting! I’m excited to see Nova’s story!

[Giveaway] Best Of: Dystopian & Post Apocalyptic

Miss Book Reviews Six Months Old Giveaway

To celebrate my six months of blogging I wanted to look back and highlight the ‘best of’ the past six months.

Today I want to share with you the books in the Dystopian and Post Apocalyptic theme that I’ve read over the past six months and loved.
[The following books are taken from the books I’ve read and reviewed only since I started blogging]

Best of: Dystopian & Post Apocalyptic

Honestly, when I first started this blog I had barely heard of the word ‘Dystopia‘. In fact, before I had heard of The Hunger Games I had never heard of the word ‘Dystopia’, I had heard of utopia. Of course. But never the opposite. So when I discovered this theme, which could seriously now be described as it’s own genre, I was intrigued.

Six months later I’m hooked. Addicted. In love with dystopian books! I find it so interesting.

What will the world be line in a century time? A thousand years time? Ten thousand years time? What will human civilization be like? We will never know personally. And that really interests me.

Of all the Dystopian and Post apocalyptic books I’ve read the past six months my favourites have been:

The Hunger Games by Suzanne CollinsEnclave by Ann AguirreDivergent by Veronica Roth

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The book that started it all! This book was the reason I started my blog, so of course I have to add it to my list of favourites!
The Hunger Games was the book that launched me right back into reading, I had forgotten how fun books could be before I decided to pick this one up. I do have to say that I didn’t really like Catching Fire as much as this one and I liked Mockingjay a whole lot less. But The Hunger Games was one awesome book!

Enclave by Ann Aguirre
Enclave rocked my world.
Seriously.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started this book. Whatever I thought I was about to read I definitely did not expect the awesomeness that is this book. A post apocalyptic world overrun by zombie like creatures with groups of humans so cut off from each other they now look different? What’s not to like if you love dystopian books?

Divergent by Veronica Roth
Divergent is one of those books that I picked up because of the hype yet I was scared that I wouldn’t like it because of the hype. Fortunately for me I went in with the expectation that my expectations would be disappointed. Meaning: This book lived up to my expectations. If you understand what I mean…
I really, really enjoyed this book! I have yet to read Insurgent purely because I’ve heard it may break my heart (Do not quote me on this, after all I haven’t read it yet…) so I’m waiting for the third book to come out so I can read it in quick succession after I’ve read Insurgent.

Under the Never Sky by Veronica RossiLegend by Marie Lu

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
This book mixes in my new favourite theme with a dash of my obsessed over genre. A dystopian book with a fantasy-adventure feel to it.
Under the Never Sky was one of those books that I loved because I was excited of the whole concept. Then I just loved it because I loved it. Who can argue with that?

Legend by Marie Lu
When I first picked up Legend I really didn’t think I would like it; It sounded too political in the summary. But I was happy to find out that it wasn’t too political at all and I ended up thoroughly enjoying it!

Have you read these books? What did you think of them?
What’s your favourite dystopian or post apocalyptic book?

[Giveaway] Best Of: Science Fiction

[Today I was spotlighted on Aunti Spinelli Reads. Check it out!]
Miss Book Reviews Six Months Old Giveaway

To celebrate my six months of blogging I wanted to look back and highlight the ‘best of’ the past six months.

Today I want to share with you the books in the Science Fiction genre that I’ve read over the past six months and loved.
[The following books are taken from the books I’ve read and reviewed only since I started blogging]

Best of: Science Fiction

I love Science Fiction books, especially ones that are set in space! I find space interesting and scary at the same time, yet the possibilities are mind boggling!

Is the universe ever expanding? Or is it shrinking? Is it looped? Or is there more than one universe out there? There has to be other beings out there, somewhere. Space is HUGE! There are so many questions I find myself pondering when I look up to the night sky. Sometimes I wonder if the star I’m looking at is actually dead now, if it collapsed in on its self, or maybe it’s a galaxy that holds something else. I find space beautiful yet terrifying.

Of all the Science Fiction books I’ve read the past six months (Which honestly isn’t many at all :() my favourites have been:

Across the Universe by Beth RevisA Million Suns by Beth RevisCinder by Marissa MeyerWhispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
A Million Suns by Beth Revis
I loved the concept of Across the Universe (And the space-y covers!), I thought it was cool and interesting. A girl wakes up too early on a spaceship that is heading to their new planet? Ohh so exciting! I enjoyed A Million Suns more than Across the Universe though, I think that was because everything was already set so it launched right into the story and had me holding on till the end.

Cinder by Marrisa Meyer
I loved Cinder! Especially since I also love Cinderella so it was bringing my favourite fairy tale and my favourite genre/s (I also love dystopian) together and that was just awesome! Cinderella a cyborg?! How ever could a prince love a cyborg? Not to mention the Lunar. Oh wait. I just did. Where are the Lunar’s? The Moon. Awesome.

Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh
I really liked Whispers of Autumn because of the concept more than the actual story. It was a really enjoyable story but perhaps not the most entertaining. I liked the idea of aliens invading earth and taking control of everyone, but I liked it a whole lot more with the seasonal elements thrown in and how Althea always transports to a different family when the season’s change yet each of those families never notice when she’s gone.

Have you read these books? What did you think of them?
Can you recommend any other Science Fiction books that are set in space?
I would love to hear of them!

Miss Book Reviews Six Months Old Giveaway

I’m six months old!

Well Miss Book Reviews is six months old.

Technically this blog was six months old a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve been so busy that I’ve only just had the time to acknowledge this fact.

So:

I'm Six Months Old Let's Party!

Go buy some cake! Or a muffin! Or even better yet, cupcakes! Personally I put on some really loud music and danced around like an idiot until I couldn’t breathe… It was fun!

The past six months has been a lot of fun. So far I’ve read more books this year than I’ve ever read in a single year, that’s pretty cool. I’ve met loads of awesome bloggers, learnt a lot about running a blog and had fun discussing books.

So to those that follow my blog, comment or who even just pass through:

THANKS!

You are all awesome and I hope to see you again!
