Book Review-Red Rising by Pierce Brown

So, I started Red Rising a few days ago, and even though I absolutely loved it, things kept getting in the way of reading it. *cough NCIS cough Chris* But it was so good! I have a brand new canon couple to ship, which makes me happy. Let me know what you guys think in the comments! Contains minor spoilers.

Red Rising was a powerful young adult dystopian. I got into it with high expectations because I’d heard such fantastic reviews about it. I had also received a couple pins from an OwlCrate that had Darrow on them. So I was excited to finally meet the man behind the pin.

Book Review-Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

I enjoyed the Divergent trilogy, but found the writing just okay. The ending of Allegiant I won’t bother getting into with this post because there’s just so much that could be said. The writing in Carve the Mark showed definite improvement. I wasn’t distracted from the story, it flowed cleanly between the different viewpoints.
