    My Opinion: I enjoyed this book tremendously. At first I thought this was so strange but, in a good way. The idea is that you have nine lives to burn in this alternate world. Usually, you die in a controlled environment like a clinic. But, there is a group of kids at the high school t...

    Star Rating: Solid 3? I liked it, I didn?t love it. It was kinda just a big MEH for me. But, *shrugs*, to each their own. ...

    Not Just Some YA Conspiracy Thing From the blurbs I figured this would start with an interesting premise and then turn into an "uncover the conspiracy" adventure, with maybe some action and probably a touch of romance. Well, yeah, that's actually all true, but boy did this author do...

    Julian is part of a society where everyone has nine lives. Each time you die, you upgrade in status and perks. However, Julian watched his mother keep upgrading her life count until she became permadead. Each new life cost in terms of senses and mental ability and even in knowing herse...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight This was such a unique topic for a book- the concept of every person having nine lives. It was like cats, but not. But also there were cats involved and I cannot help but w...

    Nine has a very unique premise that I've never come across in a Y.A. novel - in an alternate world almost identical to ours, humans have nine lives. The entire society is structured around burning through lives - in order to get into college, you need to be on at least your 3rd life. T...

    As soon as I read the description of this book I wanted to know more, it had my imagination going crazy so I couldn?t resist jumping straight in! Zach Hines, you had me at the first line - don?t you just love an epic first line! So I was pulled into the storyline straight aw...

    I don't know whether this is creepily odd or oddly creepy. In an alternate world America, storms have swept in and changed the people into nine-lived beings. When dealing with a burgeoning population, the government goes conspiratorial and experiments with permadeath. Of course, the te...

    5? Damn that was good!!! Enfin un livre où la fin n?est pas prévisible après 50 pages ?? Ce livre explore des concepts nouveaux which is so refreshing! Love the plot and the MC. Action packed and a bit of a mystery/intrigue ?? 100% would recommend ? 5?? D...

    Meh. Review to come, but I really didn't care for it. So much lost potential and world building. Honestly quiet boring. ...

    In a clever twist on dystopian storytelling, Zach Hines shows us a present day alternative world remarkably similar to our own in his debut novel NINE. Hundreds of years ago, in an Earth of a different dimension, a comet crashed into the planet, altering the atmosphere. When the fal...

    This was so weird but so interesting. The book is full of strange death clubs, government secrets and conspiracies, weird super intelligent cats and cicadas(yes, you read that right!) and rebellion groups. Basically the story is set in an alternate universe where people have nine...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. It was weirdly great. Lol. It is definitely a new concept for me. It delivered, imo. The world building is great, the writing good. The story line, yep. It just a bit descriptive in some parts but some ...

    This was creepier than I expected it to be, but also quite intriguing. ...

    DNF because I couldn't get into this one ...

    3.5/5 The premise of Nine is better than the execution. I don't like how people have 9 lives turns out to be an experiment. An open ending is not what I want. I don't like how the denouement leave too many unanswered questions. I have a feeling that this book could have had more room ...

    **I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion** "We embrace death, and we make a mockery of it. Death. She is our bitch." Wise words huh? I started reading this YA novel right after I finished the Black Dagger Brotherhood series just to get something fresh...

    A stand alone, Nine asks the question: would we value life if we had nine of them? The answer, heck no. Julian is a One. He hasn't died even once yet, but that comes with the problem of not getting any of the physical advancements that comes with dying. For each death, you get tax b...

    After reading this book, I would recommend it to others who enjoy an unusual and a slightly dark science fiction book. I believe that this book was engaging and interesting, and it kept me hooked. This book is about a world where everyone has nine lives, but the government and soci...

    This is definitely one of the better dystopian/alternate timeline books I've read in a while. It's thought-provoking, it is good social commentary, it put me as a reader on-edge, it was uncomfortable, it had a great climax and it focused on many different types of characters. I can't t...

    This is definitely one of the better dystopian/alternate timeline books I've read in a while. It's thought-provoking, it is good social commentary, it put me as a reader on-edge, it was uncomfortable, it had a great climax and it focused on many different types of characters. I can't t...

    This is definitely one of the better dystopian/alternate timeline books I've read in a while. It's thought-provoking, it is good social commentary, it put me as a reader on-edge, it was uncomfortable, it had a great climax and it focused on many different types of characters. I can't t...

    My Opinion: I enjoyed this book tremendously. At first I thought this was so strange but, in a good way. The idea is that you have nine lives to burn in this alternate world. Usually, you die in a controlled environment like a clinic. But, there is a group of kids at the high school t...

    I really enjoyed Nine by Zach Hines in the midst of reading many many fantasies. This is more of a dystopian world where everyone has nine lives and the higher your life number, the more high your standing in society is. Each time you die you get regenerated/reborn in a Lake. But somet...

    Overall, Nine was a quick and thrilling read. I'd give it a 2.5. While I sympathized with some of the characters, I wasn't particularly invested in their plight. I felt bad for Julian, being made to burn his lives to help his family, but personality-wise he made for a pretty dull le...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight This was such a unique topic for a book- the concept of every person having nine lives. It was like cats, but not. But also there were cats involved and I cannot help but w...

    Nine has a very unique premise that I've never come across in a Y.A. novel - in an alternate world almost identical to ours, humans have nine lives. The entire society is structured around burning through lives - in order to get into college, you need to be on at least your 3rd life. T...

    As soon as I read the description of this book I wanted to know more, it had my imagination going crazy so I couldn?t resist jumping straight in! Zach Hines, you had me at the first line - don?t you just love an epic first line! So I was pulled into the storyline straight aw...

    I don't know whether this is creepily odd or oddly creepy. In an alternate world America, storms have swept in and changed the people into nine-lived beings. When dealing with a burgeoning population, the government goes conspiratorial and experiments with permadeath. Of course, the te...

    5? Damn that was good!!! Enfin un livre où la fin n?est pas prévisible après 50 pages ?? Ce livre explore des concepts nouveaux which is so refreshing! Love the plot and the MC. Action packed and a bit of a mystery/intrigue ?? 100% would recommend ? 5?? D...

    Meh. Review to come, but I really didn't care for it. So much lost potential and world building. Honestly quiet boring. ...

    In a clever twist on dystopian storytelling, Zach Hines shows us a present day alternative world remarkably similar to our own in his debut novel NINE. Hundreds of years ago, in an Earth of a different dimension, a comet crashed into the planet, altering the atmosphere. When the fal...

    This was so weird but so interesting. The book is full of strange death clubs, government secrets and conspiracies, weird super intelligent cats and cicadas(yes, you read that right!) and rebellion groups. Basically the story is set in an alternate universe where people have nine...

    My Opinion: I enjoyed this book tremendously. At first I thought this was so strange but, in a good way. The idea is that you have nine lives to burn in this alternate world. Usually, you die in a controlled environment like a clinic. But, there is a group of kids at the high school t...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. It was weirdly great. Lol. It is definitely a new concept for me. It delivered, imo. The world building is great, the writing good. The story line, yep. It just a bit descriptive in some parts but some ...

    DNF because I couldn't get into this one ...

    3.5/5 The premise of Nine is better than the execution. I don't like how people have 9 lives turns out to be an experiment. An open ending is not what I want. I don't like how the denouement leave too many unanswered questions. I have a feeling that this book could have had more room ...

    **I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion** "We embrace death, and we make a mockery of it. Death. She is our bitch." Wise words huh? I started reading this YA novel right after I finished the Black Dagger Brotherhood series just to get something fresh...

    A stand alone, Nine asks the question: would we value life if we had nine of them? The answer, heck no. Julian is a One. He hasn't died even once yet, but that comes with the problem of not getting any of the physical advancements that comes with dying. For each death, you get tax b...

    After reading this book, I would recommend it to others who enjoy an unusual and a slightly dark science fiction book. I believe that this book was engaging and interesting, and it kept me hooked. This book is about a world where everyone has nine lives, but the government and soci...
