  • Aimal (Bookshelves & Paperbacks)
    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 one, and so many thoughts about several of these aspects. More than this, perhaps – the reason why reviewing this book is so difficult is because I can fully see the inval...

    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 taken, this story has been incredible.27 HOURS is a story of loss and love, family (both by blood and those you make for yourself) and friendship, and finding yoursel...

    [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, my DMs are always open.

    ***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 opinions are mine and I have a right to them. You are trying to silence a WOC to protect a white woman's feelings.**I am being harassed by the author regarding my revi...

    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 feel like it wasn't safe to tell me what she had done, or how her actions made you feel, I am so, so genuinely sorry. My heart is breaking today for anyone she has h...

    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 video game I've never played. If anyone at Bioware is listening, please pick up Tristina immediately. Thanks.

    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 the early version from privately. But since all of the OTHER reviews on here are early version, and they seem to have only an issue with mine... hmmmm!!!!!!!! Seem...

    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 right up and does not let up (Tristina throws her readers right onto her scifi roller coaster and you better hang on). Oh, yeah – and I should probably mention the H...

    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 and the characters are well fleshed out and helloooo none of the mains are straight WHOO!!! and some are POC as well so double whoo!!! I was on the edge of my seat while...

    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 spend a lot of time killing, killing, killing.- All the sexual attraction. If you're not in Braeden's POV (he is the ace teen), you will be constantly told how seriously...

    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.
  • Amanda Prado
    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 hate this word), and that the asexual rep was.... not good. Which I noticed while I was reading but just let it slide because "everyone gets asexual rep wrong anyway...

    I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange of an honest reviewFull 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 started this blog, which is almost two years ago. I feel so torn and conficted about it because, if you follow me of Twitter you might’ve noticed that this was one of my most ...

    I'm deleting my review with the allegations coming up against Tristina. I don't want to post potentially trigger content and I expect that Tristina will delete her tweet later so scroll through the comments of this where there's more allegations against other people.
  • Jessie (Ageless Pages Reviews)
    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 against an indigenous, intelligent species because..... the humans wanted the land? And we are supposed to sympathize with the colonizers' plight? And none of the effected, i...
  • Andrea
    Unfortunately, this book just wasn't for me. I was really looking forward to this, but I pretty much had an issue with... everything. The characters, the world-building, the writing, etc. There wasn't anything particularly wrong with all of this, it just wasn't for me.I do have to mention the biggest drawback this book has going for it. And that's the fact that this centers around colonists (or descendants of colonist) POVs and ignores the indige...
  • Avery (Book Deviant)
    I would like to thank Entangled Teen for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Hmm. This one is hard, but ultimately I have to say no.Check out my full review here.edit: My original rating of this book was generous. 2 1/2 after everything that I disliked. But now Tristina has been accused of sexual harassment, and I can't do this anymore. I've had guilty feelings about rating this book so low because I consider myself friends of thos...

    Story ⭐⭐There is kind of a intercontinental war going on with gargoyles and humans on the moon. Some of these humans are teenagers who struggle with live, love, loss, friendship and more. Sadly, I wasn’t really attached to the story or it’s characters. 😕Characters ⭐⭐⭐First of all I’m in love with the names in this story. I mean Nyx, Rumor, Dahlia... 😍Second, diversity is nothing special, it seems normal in this world. This i...
