The Dark Intercept (The Dark Intercept #1) by Julia Keller

I requested this book from Tor back in June & had totally forgotten about it since I hadn’t heard from them. I was very happy to have received it in the mail last week but since its publication date is 10/31 this means I had to squeeze it in this weeks reading schedule. There aren’t many reviews as of yet since I believe I read somewhere that the Publisher asked reviews to be posted first week of November. Of the reviews/ratings that are up on Goodreads, not many are good but I’m not letting this deter me from reading this one. I started it this morning so I’m only 25 pages in but I will be reading throughout the day & updating my Goodreads as I ago along. Blurbed by Melissa Landers author of the Alienated series & Emmy Laybourne author of Berserker, I have hope for this read *fingers crossed* 


This is the eGalley that I was supposed to be reading together with Nyxia last week lol. Well…Nyxia kind of snuffed out everything in sight & I could only focus on what was going on in NYXIA! smh so reading 2 books was a #epicfail last week. I have hope this week since I am reading The Dark Intercept in physical format on my commute to/from work & this will be the eGalley I read while at work during down time. I’ll aslo be updating my progress & thoughts on Goodreads 😉

Berserker (Berserker #1) by Emmy Laybourne

I finished Berserker yesterday & settled on a 3.5 rating, it certainly had many elements I enjoyed however, I expected a less than neat conclusion to what really was a bloody read. Many thoughts I’m still sorting through but my review will be posted this week. 

Nyxia (The Nyxia Triad #1) by Scott Reintgen

I recently read, loved, & wrote a GUSH review for Nyxia by Scott Reintgen (my review)…I’m still not over that ending!!! *sobs* this book was a burst of adrenaline each & every time I picked it up. I enjoyed the cast of diverse characters immensely & can’t wait for the sequel next year! Also, on Friday my luck was on a roll & I won a signed copy of this book from a giveaway the author himself was running. He was very nice & promised that book 2 amps up the fun even further which gives me something to look forward to. Last but not least, I came across NerdNarration who also reviewed Nyxia & BOOKWORMS she nailed it! I loved her enthusiasm & style of reviewing so much 🙂

Renegades (Renegades #1) by Marissa Meyer

Secret Identities.
Extraordinary Powers.
She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Yes! Yes I am reading Renegades next & Yes! I am over the top excited & have tired of stroking the spine every day when I walk past my shelf haha! This is 576 pages I am SO READY for & because it’s a hefty one, it will be my last read for the month. Hoping to close October with a bang! 🙂

What are you wonderful bookworms currently reading? planning to read next? any good ones? & if you’re reading any of the ones I mentioned, sound off in the comments down below! ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Yes Kristin! I agree, we haven’t heard enough about You Bring the Distant Near which unfortunately is the case for many Diverse books 😕 but I’m really looking forward to reading & reviewing Perkins book. Nyxia was pulse pounding action, I think you’ll LOVE it! 🙃

  1. As you already know, I am waiting for your Berserker review as my final decision will hinge on it. A 3.5 is not bad, so waiting to read those thoughts! I really hope you enjoy The Dark Intercept! I was so excited to see you receive your copy. I am glad you are not letting the negative reviews sway you ❤ Keep me posted.

    1. I am waiting for my thoughts to form sentences lol, I really want to give it a fair review because there was so much of it I did enjoy. I’m a fan of Norse mythology & I was surprised to see it mesh well with the American frontier. I’ll aim to have it up by Friday just for you my friend 😉
      I’m def giving The Last Intercept a fair shake, I didn’t see many actual reviews on GR explaining likes/dislikes so it will be interesting to see what rolls out as we approach Pub date 🙂

  2. First of all, you are the absolutely sweetest for including me in this post! Your words gave me the biggest smile ever!

    Secondly, I am super jealous that you’re reading Renegades next. I can’t wait to see what you think!! #LivingVicariously

    1. Well you def captured the best parts of Nyxia & had me smiling so It was my pleasure mentioning it here 😉
      & I’m still pinching myself over actually owning a arc copy of Renegades, very excited to be back with Meyer’s words 🙂

    1. Thank you Krysti! & if you’re a fan of Norse mythology then yes, I’d give it a go. The author meshed Norse mythology with the American Frontier so it reads very much like a western, it worked well. This was actually my 1st YA western & I think I’ll be continuing on to the next book at the very least. I should have a review up by Friday if you’d like to check it out but the book is a 3.5/5 for me 😉

      1. Oh, it’s a western? I had no idea. LOL. I LOVE Vengeance Road and Retribution Rails, so I might like it. I don’t really know anything about Norse mythology, but it seems like something that would be interesting. Thanks so much, Lilly!!!


  3. The only book on your list this week I’ve heard of is Renegades! 😀
    I hope you enjoy The Dark Intercept, and that it turns out to be better than the average reviews are suggesting at the moment. Also I really hope you enjoy Renegades! It’s one of my most anticipated releases (then again it’s by Marissa Meyer so that shouldn’t come as a huge surprise) but it’s not being released in the UK until April for some reason. Still I’ve been lucky enough to get an ARC myself so I’ll be starting it soon as well. 🙂

      1. Ah thanks Lilly. God I don’t know how I would have waited until April if I hadn’t gotten an ARC. 😀
        That’s all right, and yeah I hope so too but it’s Marissa Meyer so that means we probably will both love it! 🙂 ❤


  4. The Dark Intercept sounds soooo intriguing! I’ll be really interested in hearing your thoughts on that one as you read it. You’ve obvs talked me into Nyxia, haha! And I’m completely jealous that you have an ARC of Renegades. My greedy little hands need that book right now!!
