“The Atlantis Grail” is Hogwarts in Space meets The Hunger Games

Posted Posted in Books, Dystopian Books, Sci-Fi Books

For some inscrutable reason, I delight in books where teenagers go to class. The Atlantis Grail feeds this hunger of mine, while serving up a delicious platter of “go to class to learn how to not die”. Best of all, the nickname given to the main character is superhero gold.   “Listen to her!” Laronda picks up. “She is Shoelace Girl!”   The Atlantis Grail is an epic read, crossing different genres. It is a […]

“Don’t Starve” Or Die A Lot Video Game Review

Posted Posted in Mobile Games, PC Games, Video Games

Dying is just par for the course in Don’t Starve, where there isn’t any hand-holding, tutorials, or making things easy. Instead, Klei Entertainment built an in-depth world of magic, science and survival, where every night you stay alive is a night you want to pat yourself on the back.

Posted Posted in Books, Dystopian Books, Sci-Fi Books

Finishing the Saving Mars 6-book series this morning was bittersweet. I have to admit that I put off the last 50 or so pages of the book for a few days just because I didn’t want it to be over. But it is, and so here I am, presenting my Saving Mars book review. “You’ve made my life immeasurably better by not barbecuing my dog.” The Saving Mars series follows 17-year-old Jessamyn Jaarda on her […]

2-6 5m – 1h 13+ 4 / 5 Players Play Time Recommended Age Geek Rating   The Refuge Review: B&B Games launched their Kickstarter campaign for The Refuge on the 15th of September in 2016.

7 Best Dystopian Novel Series

Posted Posted in Books, Dystopian Books

I realised that I had become a dystopian novel addict after The Hunger Games. I’d read His Dark Materials a few years back, and was waiting on my sister to pass me Extras from the Uglies series when I decided to pick it up. Afterwards, my google searches consisted of “you’ve finished the hunger games, now what?” That hunger has yet to wane. So here’s my list of the 7 best Dystopian novel series out there right now. (in […]
