    2.5* possibly? ** An author is not their book. I am going to be honest whether I know the author or not. Me critiquing a book is not a personal attack on the author, no matter who they may be. I am super proud of these ladies for getting BookTubers names on a published book, whether...

    More like a 1.5 because this wasn?t the worst book I?ve ever read and there were quite a few scenes that were well written, but other aspects were not the best. (also I?ll leave a caution because there is a non consensual kiss and a rape scene in this book) I?ll link my re...

    Edit 4/7 - After further reflection, I've decided to drop my rating to 3 stars. All of my previous likes/dislikes of Zenith still stand, but I feel 3 stars is a better representation of my positives/negatives for this novel. While there were so many things about Zenith that I enjoyed f...

    Sitting here reading the reviews like: ...

    So I received an arc of this and I just... I just can't. It's so stupid. It's so bad. I was either cringing or laughing whilst reading this and only managed to get through ~100 pages before I started skimming. This is the flimsiest sci-fi I've encountered. It's laughable. ...

    I'm so over books being published because of fame. I get it that there's some work involved but it's so Ivanka Trump when people who are famous tell me in their high-pitched, fluttery voices: "I worked so hard just like everybody else to be successful" and I'm like, no. You're successf...

    I've put off writing this review for a few days because I really don't know what to say. The long and short of it is: Zenith isn't bad, but it isn't good either. The writing felt very self-conscious, like they knew exactly what character traits and relationship dynamics would make ...

    Update: I am going to give this book a second chance so I'm removing my star rating ____________ DNF 52% I just don't see myself finishing this book, at least not any time soon and I would rather focus on books I want to read. This was starting to put me into a bit of a reading ...

    I LOVED this book from start to finish and there is no part of this book that I don?t like. This Sci-fi world is one of the best I have ever read, it is a work of art. The plot was very elaborate and thought out, the story unravels beautifully and I was not disappointed by anything. ...

    Is this PLAGIARISM?!? UPDATE 01/17/18: Copy received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Seriously, as if I cared that publishers might actually see this. So I was spammed that yesterday was the release of this book and while searching ...

    Zenith: The Andromeda Saga N ow I know there?s a lot of controversy being brought to the forefront surrounding Zenith because of the editor and I wasn?t quite sure if it was a book I was going to pick up, but as I got an ARC from my friend for free I decided to review it. ...

    Zenith is one of the more controversial novels of next year but no matter what your stance on the debate, an all-female crew of space pirates is too good of a premise to overlook. Or so I thought. The real reason this book is getting such low ratings is not due to the authors or the ed...

    3.5 stars. Honestly, I didn't think this was that bad! Since I'm a BookTuber, I figure a few of you may be curious about if I know Sasha. I do not. I've followed her channel and Twitter for a few years and left a few comments, but we aren't mutuals, have never met, and I doubt she h...

    As a massive sci-fi fan, I was really looking forward to reading Zenith, until I came to Goodreads and realised how many negative reviews there were. Still curious, I went into the book with promise. The book starts off in a promising way, with a ruthless assassin, Andi, the Bloody ...

    I've put off writing this review for a few days because I really don't know what to say. The long and short of it is: Zenith isn't bad, but it isn't good either. The writing felt very self-conscious, like they knew exactly what character traits and relationship dynamics would make ...

    I LOVED this book from start to finish and there is no part of this book that I don?t like. This Sci-fi world is one of the best I have ever read, it is a work of art. The plot was very elaborate and thought out, the story unravels beautifully and I was not disappointed by anything. ...

    Is this PLAGIARISM?!? UPDATE 01/17/18: Copy received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Seriously, as if I cared that publishers might actually see this. So I was spammed that yesterday was the release of this book and while searching ...

    Zenith: The Andromeda Saga N ow I know there?s a lot of controversy being brought to the forefront surrounding Zenith because of the editor and I wasn?t quite sure if it was a book I was going to pick up, but as I got an ARC from my friend for free I decided to review it. ...

    Zenith is one of the more controversial novels of next year but no matter what your stance on the debate, an all-female crew of space pirates is too good of a premise to overlook. Or so I thought. The real reason this book is getting such low ratings is not due to the authors or the ed...

    UPDATE June 13 2017: So, to clarify because I have received a couple of very salty comments... Look. I have no problem with Ms. Sasha Alsberg as a person. I think she is very pretty and she seems very vivacious and cool. However... what I think of her book is different. It's that simpl...

    Three words FEMALE SPACE PIRATES. If that doesnt draw you in maybe Six of Crows set in space will. This was an immersive read with a fun plot. I loved the short chapters because it made it feel like I was getting through this 500+ page book faster. I was getting distracted a lot while ...

    DNF @ page 23 ...

    I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Zenith is certainly a larger-than-life book with numerous plot elements to make for an interesting story. Following the crew of the marauder, it's a novel of adventure, friendship and the thrill of the future. That being said, ...

    Zenith is one of the more controversial novels of next year but no matter what your stance on the debate, an all-female crew of space pirates is too good of a premise to overlook. Or so I thought. The real reason this book is getting such low ratings is not due to the authors or the ed...

    As a massive sci-fi fan, I was really looking forward to reading Zenith, until I came to Goodreads and realised how many negative reviews there were. Still curious, I went into the book with promise. The book starts off in a promising way, with a ruthless assassin, Andi, the Bloody ...

    UPDATE June 13 2017: So, to clarify because I have received a couple of very salty comments... Look. I have no problem with Ms. Sasha Alsberg as a person. I think she is very pretty and she seems very vivacious and cool. However... what I think of her book is different. It's that simpl...

    I LOVED this book from start to finish and there is no part of this book that I don?t like. This Sci-fi world is one of the best I have ever read, it is a work of art. The plot was very elaborate and thought out, the story unravels beautifully and I was not disappointed by anything. ...

    Zenith: The Andromeda Saga N ow I know there?s a lot of controversy being brought to the forefront surrounding Zenith because of the editor and I wasn?t quite sure if it was a book I was going to pick up, but as I got an ARC from my friend for free I decided to review it. ...

    Zenith is one of the more controversial novels of next year but no matter what your stance on the debate, an all-female crew of space pirates is too good of a premise to overlook. Or so I thought. The real reason this book is getting such low ratings is not due to the authors or the ed...

    3.5 stars. Honestly, I didn't think this was that bad! Since I'm a BookTuber, I figure a few of you may be curious about if I know Sasha. I do not. I've followed her channel and Twitter for a few years and left a few comments, but we aren't mutuals, have never met, and I doubt she h...

    UPDATE June 13 2017: So, to clarify because I have received a couple of very salty comments... Look. I have no problem with Ms. Sasha Alsberg as a person. I think she is very pretty and she seems very vivacious and cool. However... what I think of her book is different. It's that simpl...

    So from the editor Lauren Smulski that brought us the Continent and the Blackwitch... *nervously grimaces*... Alright then. I'm suprised Harlequin Teen is not watching this editor like a hawk after all the racist books she's helped publish. ...

    2.5/5 stars I received an eARC from the publishers via netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I went completely blind into this book, I did not read Zenith Part 1 when it came out a few years ago, and I successfully avoided hearing a single thing about even the basic plot....

    Put down at page 112. Nope, I can?t read anymore. Everything including the plot and characters felt so mediocre. I love Sasha, she?s one of my favourite Booktubers and I was really hoping to enjoy this book, but it was definitely not for me. Before starting it I was very excited...

    Zenith is one of the more controversial novels of next year but no matter what your stance on the debate, an all-female crew of space pirates is too good of a premise to overlook. Or so I thought. The real reason this book is getting such low ratings is not due to the authors or the ed...

    2.5 stars. I've got lots to say on this one. You can check out my full review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7MO0... ...

    3.5 stars. Honestly, I didn't think this was that bad! Since I'm a BookTuber, I figure a few of you may be curious about if I know Sasha. I do not. I've followed her channel and Twitter for a few years and left a few comments, but we aren't mutuals, have never met, and I doubt she h...

    As a massive sci-fi fan, I was really looking forward to reading Zenith, until I came to Goodreads and realised how many negative reviews there were. Still curious, I went into the book with promise. The book starts off in a promising way, with a ruthless assassin, Andi, the Bloody ...

    UPDATE June 13 2017: So, to clarify because I have received a couple of very salty comments... Look. I have no problem with Ms. Sasha Alsberg as a person. I think she is very pretty and she seems very vivacious and cool. However... what I think of her book is different. It's that simpl...

    So from the editor Lauren Smulski that brought us the Continent and the Blackwitch... *nervously grimaces*... Alright then. I'm suprised Harlequin Teen is not watching this editor like a hawk after all the racist books she's helped publish. ...

    2.5/5 stars I received an eARC from the publishers via netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I went completely blind into this book, I did not read Zenith Part 1 when it came out a few years ago, and I successfully avoided hearing a single thing about even the basic plot....

    Put down at page 112. Nope, I can?t read anymore. Everything including the plot and characters felt so mediocre. I love Sasha, she?s one of my favourite Booktubers and I was really hoping to enjoy this book, but it was definitely not for me. Before starting it I was very excited...

    Three words FEMALE SPACE PIRATES. If that doesnt draw you in maybe Six of Crows set in space will. This was an immersive read with a fun plot. I loved the short chapters because it made it feel like I was getting through this 500+ page book faster. I was getting distracted a lot while ...
