5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

March 12, 2017 Review 4 ★★★★

Brilliant atmosphere Alison Goodman puts an insane amount of research into this series and it really pays off. The world building is amazing and creates a brilliant atmosphere. The description makes everything so vivid. More fights scenes and action Lady Helen is finally out of her parents house and free to begin Reclaimer training. Which means more action, and more […]

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

March 9, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★½

My first Melina Marchetta contemporary Okay first is a lie. Technically ON THE JELLICOE ROAD is my second Marchetta contemporary because I had to read LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI in high school. Either way, I loved this as much as I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK! I cannot wait to delve into more of Marchetta’s contemporary fiction, or all the other […]

Series Bec Has Failed to Finish Because She’s Slack

March 6, 2017 Discussion 40

As a massive fantasy fan, I LOVE series. I can’t get myself enough of series. What I do struggle with is staying up to date with them, or even finishing them at all. Once upon a time I was good at keeping up, then uni happened. Since then I’m behind in most of my series and it hurts me. It’s […]

5 Things About Frostblood by Elly Blake

February 26, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★

Fast paced and easy to read Guess who read 50% of this book in one sitting? Yepppp it’s that addictive. Right from the first chapter the plot gets moving and it’s hard pull yourself away. Everything moves forward so fast, you keep turning the pages to read more. No lengthy descriptions weigh this fantasy down. Personally, I would have liked […]

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

February 23, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★½

Victorian Era Forensics If I’m going to read a crime novel, it’s going to be a historical one! Victorian and regency eras in particular seem to be my favourites. As a fan of science, I love seeing how it’s used to solve things without modern advancements. The vet side of me also loves the autopsies and science things. I’m a […]

When I’m Not Reading: Podcast Edition

February 20, 2017 Discussion, When I'm Not Reading 18

I think it was back in my “how I listen to audiobooks” post from a while ago that I mentioned using podcasts to help adjust me to audiobooks. They’re a bit easier to get into, require somewhat less focus, and generally each episode is its own shorter story. Since I so specifically mentioned podcasts back then, and I listen to […]
