How I Listen to Audiobooks

How I Listen to Audiobooks

September 29, 2016 Discussion 26

A few of you may remember that back at the start of the year I was lamenting over the fact that I couldn’t get audiobooks to work for me. I struggled to focus and just generally had a terrible time listening to them. Fastforward 6 months and I’m flying through audiobooks. I finally figured out how to get them to […]

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

September 15, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★★

  Not for younger audiences NEVERNIGHT features a school for asassins and a revenge plot. I would be disappointed if the voilence was softened to suit a younger audience. Darker, more complex tales targeted at a slightly older audience are much more interesting in my opinion. NEVERNIGHT is bloody and intense. People could die at any time. But this wasn’t […]

September 2, 2016 Meme 24

Don’t know about you guys, but August hasn’t been the best month. So many things happening for both Alise and I, particularly outside the blog. With any luck, September will be a lot better. Reviews: Discussions: August started terribly with me failing a practical exam. I had a panic attack during the exam and yeah, it wasn’t great. Really through […]

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

August 28, 2016 Review 10 ★★★

Second book syndrome or slump? I really enjoyed WHITE CAT but for some reason I never fully connected with RED GLOVE. It may be attributable to a slump I was in at the time, or it may be because I actually didn’t enjoy it as much. It’s difficult to tell and to be honest I think it might be a […]

5 Things About The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

5 Things About The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

August 24, 2016 Review 12 ★★★★½

Not as painful as expected THE WINNER’S CRIME was so emotionally painful, I was bracing myself for this to be just as painful. I did cry at the start but after that… it was surprisingly okay. Not many people died, things were happier and less angsty. It was strange, but nice. Roshar is so charming I bloody love Roshar. He’s […]

5 Things About And I Darken by Kiersten White

5 Things About And I Darken by Kiersten White

August 20, 2016 Review 20 ★★★★½

White’s writing has come so far I think the last time I read Kiersten White was SUPERNATURALLY, or maybe MIND GAMES. They were good, but omg has White come far with her writing! AND I DARKEN was great. Honestly the perfect writing style for historical novels, or even historical based fantasies. I’ll be checking out White’s fantasy books soon and […]

5 Things About White Cat by Holly Black

5 Things About White Cat by Holly Black

August 8, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★

Curse working is cool Discovering new magic systems is always fun, and the characters in WHITE CAT have some creepy powers. The ability to change emotions, change memories, give off good luck, kill, and more just with a touch. Using powers also has consequences for the curse worker, which I found a really interesting and great concept (normally people with […]
