It only just dawned on me the other day that 2016 is nearly over. I refuse to believe that because there is still so much to do! The only good thing about it is it means those pretty 2017 goodies are closer! Reviews Discussions Bec I can’t even think of things I’ve done this past months because final exams start […]

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

5 Things About Black Heart by Holly Black

October 29, 2016 Review 8 ★★★½

Back to the mystery and intrigue One of the things I was worried about was that I would find BLACK HEART as meh as I found RED GLOVE. Fortunately for me, we get more heists and intrigue right from the get go. It was more fast paced than the second book which helped a lot and had less romance angst. […]

But unfortunately it has created a monumental problem. The biggest problem a reader ever has to face.  The Never Ending, Forever Mutiplying […]

5 Things About A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

October 5, 2016 Review 14 ★★★

AUs everywhere! Before A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU, alternate universes were a concept I’d mostly stumbled across in fan fiction. And just like my experience with AUs in fan fiction, I absolutely loved seeing the different worlds in this. It’s so interesting how one single choice/ action can create such drastic changes while also keeping some things similar. My favourite world […]
