Two-faced Nitpicker

I'm here just to scope this place out as an alternative to goodreads and as a little bookbank in case I ever bank out of goodreads. (And did I also mention goodreads?)


About me: I'm a pretty lazy reviewer but big on reading so don't expect much reviewing but when reviews come, do beware of endless rambling about everything, including things unimportant like digressing on other unrelated books.


"Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you"

The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey 2.5 to 3 ish? Not my type. Romance was so contrived "I saved you because you saved me" my foot. I was so creeped out by Cassie waking up in Evan's house with NO EXPLANATION as to why he saved her. Insta-love really does not work in a apocalyptic setting, especially given Cassie's character. and the plot was increasingly banal. Not going to elaborate much (I'll direct you to the better written reviews) but I don't hate the plot or the book, I just don't feel particularly enthusiastic for it.
