    This book is amazing! Laura has a fresh writing and she managed to create awesome characters. It's diverse, funny, but also emotional. I loved Clover, but my favorite one is Iolanthe. Full of plot twists and almost no romance, it's the alien adventure I wanted. Friendships takes a big ...

    Okay. This book surprised me in so many levels. I've read other things from Laura, so I knew I would like it, but this was very different. This book has everything I love in sci-fi stories: aliens, a realistic narrative, well-developed characters who have to deal with extreme situati...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. There is potential, but it is never fulfilled. It is an entertaining read, but a forgettable one. 'The Last 8' features an aromantic lead, and subsequently a complete lack of love triangles. I am not aromantic but was able to sympathize. Honest...

    If you like aliens, you?ll like this one. I?m not a big fan, but it seemed good, so I wanted to read it... It was somewhat an enjoyable read, with the right amount of action or emotional scenes, but at the same time... many things are unbelievable and left me sceptical. In the end,...

    I received this arc through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. For some reason I can't explain, a book about friendship and aliens was exactly what I needed right now. Lately, I've felt like I've been reading the same book over and over again (with slight variations) an...

    4.5 stars. This was a really good science fiction story that I'm happy to see is going to have a sequel. It left off in a way that we need it! Although it definitely led up to the very end as if it cold be a standalone, the ending left us hanging, not knowing what would happen! You ...

    4.5 stars. This was a really good science fiction story that I'm happy to see is going to have a sequel. It left off in a way that we need it! Although it definitely led up to the very end as if it cold be a standalone, the ending left us hanging, not knowing what would happen! You ...
