The #FridayReads Review (1/22/16)

Welcome to The #FridayReads Review, a regular Friday segment where I share what I've been reading the past week, and what I'm planning to read next! Want to join the Friday fun? Post your own #FridayReads Review and leave the link in the Comments below, or just Comment with what you've been reading!

Starflight (Starflight, #1)
Starflight by Melissa Landers (ARC)
This book has exceeded all my eager expectations with its wild and unpredictable adventure plot and cast of some of the most vivid characters I've ever read. Sadly almost finished. :'(

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)The Seven Deadly Sins 11

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (ARC)
2.5 Stars. A predictable fantasy that was occasionally engaging but I mainly found disappointingly formulaic. Review to come.

The Seven Deadly Sins vol. 11 by Nakaba Suzuki (PBK)
3 Stars. This continues to be an entertaining if overly populated series. Mainly in it for Meliodas's backstory though, and hope we're coming up on at least a few more interesting tidbits soon.

Raging Sea (Undertow, #2)
Raging Sea by Michael Buckley (ARC)
The publisher was the sweetest and sent me an ARC so I'll be devouring it as soon as I finish devouring Starflight!!

So what are you reading this week?


  1. Great books! I have the first book before Raging Sea that I still need to read. Do you think Starflight is purchasing worthy? It's one I really wanted to read and don't have the arc for. I have heard mixed reviews about Red Queen but am going to give it a go since I have the ARC.

    1. I highly recommend you make time for Undertow (the first book before Raging Sea) soon, it's a rush of a read! And HECK YES Starflight is worth purchasing!! I gave it ALL THE STARS, and the rest of my reads this year will be hard-pressed to beat it out for Best 2016 Read.

      I may not have loved Red Queen as much as most, but the writing and action were good enough so definitely give it a try since you have it. I'll be interested to see what you think!
