Eighth has no voice or name, only an offside who it is his duty to protect. When a human kills her the directives that hum in his mind loose their power... Sixteen year-old Raven is away at court mandated summer camp where the outdoors life is meant to get her head on straight. Instead the armored Nahx invade and they are left with the instructions to "shelter in place." Everything changes when Raven's boyfriend is killed by a Nahx. Thrown toget ...more
"Dart the humans. Leave them where they fall."
I'm quite taken aback by how much I loved Zero Repeat Forever. It delivers everything one would hope for in a science fiction involving an alien invasion such as:
-aliens (of course)
-weird alien suits and weapons
-lots of frightening post-apocalyptic scenarios that make you ponder the fragility of the human race
-some spunky kids who are fighting terrible odds of survival but never quit trying
But what I didn't expect at all was the beauty I wo ...more
This alien invasion book focuses on character development and lots of inner dialogue about emotion rather than action scenes, so if that's your thing, you might enjoy it. The ending was great, and has me looking forward to the sequel.
I think saying this is The Fifth Wave meets Beauty and the Beast is a fair comparison but this book is also so much more. This is Poe’s The Raven, Life As We Knew It, The Lord of the Flies...
This is a story about an alien invasion that follows a bad ass chick who is trying to survive with others as they figure out what is happening around the world. It also follows one of the aliens who is “defective” and is experiencing emotions and confusion. The pacing is slow as we learn about ...more
The pitch for ZERO REPEAT FOREVER is basically THE FIFTH WAVE meets BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. This is pretty damn accurate so I should be over the moon, right? Wellllll.
His bluster gives me a strong next-to-die vibe, like he's that guy in the movie who has to fly one last mission, or retires the next day. I wish I weren't sitting right across from him, in range of any potential blood splatter or flying organs.
Even though things aren't the same, the s ...more
The world is gone. It was taken from us, the way a massive heart attack takes a life. Swiftly, ruthlessly, almost as though there is nothing personal about it.
HOLY. SHIT. YOU GUYS. There are not enough words to properly describe how much I LOVED this book! And the more time that passes, the more I love it. I can't get it out of my head. I thought about it all day the following day after I finished it. I just can't stop thinking about it! It's really gotten under my skin in a way that not many b
Estaban duda de ponerle un dos o un tres a este libro. Si me preguntan si me gustó o si lo disfrute la respuesta es no. Lo único que llego a rescatar es el final, que me sorprendió y me terminó gustando.
El libro cuenta sobre una invasión extraterrestre, en donde tenemos a dos protagonistas.
Raven es una chica humana que está huyendo de la invasión, con el pequeño grupo de supervivientes.
Octavo es uno de los extraterrestres, que no entiende del todo a qué se debe la invasión. ...more

Zero Repeat Forever is THE book that demanded patience of me in return for a nice pay-off. Slow paced yet instantly addictive, I couldn’t quit this book. The sto ...more
No puedo creer lo mucho que me gustó este libro. Lo peor que es yo no soy de leer esta clase de libros pero este desde que leí la sinopsis me llamó la atención. Estoy muy contenta de que no me haya desilusionada porque le entre con mucha emoción.
Los personajes me gustaron todos, algunas más que otros, por ej. Octavo lo adoro mientras que a Raven la aprendí a soportar, hay que entender un poco toda la situación que están viviendo.
El final ...more
“zero repeat forever” failed to make me feel any ways. trying to make me feel bad for a lost love interest that turns out to be a whole asshole? good luck.
the main character was more of like... a piper maclean from HoO? we hear of her being mixed/with a crazy Afro & I just imagined her as Belle bc that’s how useless she turned out to be.
beauty and the beast is my fav , I love it to death; but August was a weird alien ...more
Rating: 4.5 stars
I had a hard time getting into Zero Repeat Forever initially. It's slow paced in the beginning, but once it picks up, I couldn't put it down. It's definitely more character driven than plot driven, but once the characters find their motivation or destination, the action picks up a lot more. If you're having the same trouble I was starting this book, do not stop reading it. You will be so happy you kept with it!
The characters! Raven and Eig ...more
Oh.Dear.God. This was a constant whirlwind of emotions! I stared at the last page for a good five minutes after finishing it. If this does not qualify as a book hangover then I don't know what it does.
It was absolutely incredible. The writing was superb, captivating, and surprisingly addictive. I read this 500-page bad boy in a day.
A post apocalyptic/alien invasion tale narrated from two different POV -- Eighth's (Alien) and Raven's (Human). The story kickstarts right after an alien ...more

...so I'm okay with:
Eighth = Silencer/Evan Walker
Raven = Corvus = Cassiopeia
lalalalala I am trash.
Before I get into the review, can we just sit and appreciate the beauty that is the Zero Repeat Forever‘s cover? It’s beautiful and I love it. I loved the cover before I read the book, and now that I’ve finished the book, there is so much significance in the artwork. Even the lettering. THE COVER IS BRILLIANT.
I was initially drawn into Zero Repeat Forever by the c ...more
For some reason, alien books have never really been my thing. I think it's because whenever I read something involving aliens it's really weird. I didn't remember enjoying The 5th Wave, even though I never ended up finishing that series, so I was intrigued by the pitch that this is that meshed with Beauty and the Beast. I'm a sucker for fairy tale retellings and especially for that specific retelling, so I knew I had to give this book a sh ...more
Oh my heart I don’t know how I will survive until book 2 come out because I will keep thinking about this book and story everyday of my life and I just want it to end happily ever after and my ship sail smoothly but I know it will be just a wishful thinking but anything can happen in a book right? right.. sigh.. so many feels ughhh… that’s how good this book is for me LOL
This book probably sounds like “The 5th Wave” but its actually completely different story
I am so happy to see the response from the post about Megan. I wanted to leave all your comments there and untouched because the post isn't about me, it's about Megan and how wonderful she was. So thank you all for the outpouring of love. I hope she knew we all loved her so much.
It's a new month, and according to the lying calendar, it's supposed to be Spring. I got snow last night, and IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SPRING. But what can ya do?

I love a good YA sci-fi every now and then and the title and cover completely drew me in when I spotted this on NetGalley. Unfortunately, like most other readers have pointed out, this reminded me a lot of the Fifth Wave, which I read not that long ago. The pace was very slow as well. Now, I don’t always mind a slow book and I was intrigued enough to finish the novel, but it was beyond sloooow. Like "main characters don't meet until 50%" slow.
I found the world-building and character developmen ...more
