Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

December 11, 2017 Review 2 ★★★

Full disclosure: I struggle with sci-fi novels. I’m not sure why, but even the best science fictions novels are hard for me to get through. So, keep that in mind when I talk about the pacing of this novel. This feels very much like a setup book. There is a ton of world building and explanation in the beginning, exploration […]

DNF Review: RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

DNF Review: RoseBlood by A.G. Howard

December 9, 2017 Review 6 DNF

2017 has been a strange year in that I’ve DNFed two books this year. Normally I’m surprised if I DNF one. Both books were DNFed for the same reason: boredom. Unlike my last DNF, I didn’t find the characters irritating but I was struggling to get into the plot. ROSEBLOOD is a Phantom of the Opera retelling and I feel like […]

5 Things About The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

5 Things About The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

December 3, 2017 Review 18 ★★★½

So different to the movie Having seen the movie first, of course I’m going to be comparing the book to it a lot. While the start was quite similar, and the overall message that everyone has problems and insecurities is the same, the rest of the story was remarkably different. And that’s a good thing! I get into it a […]

5 Things About Renegades by Marissa Meyer

5 Things About Renegades by Marissa Meyer

November 24, 2017 Review 12 ★★★★

Really interesting superpowers When you think of superheroes you think of things like the DC and Marvel heroes. People with powers like super strength, flying, indestructibility, and telikinesis. Those exist in the world of RENEGADES but there is also so much more! The ability to force people to sleep, disperse into butterflies, and make your drawing come to life! These are […]

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

November 6, 2017 Review 5 ★★★★

Hold up. A Sarah J. Maas book I actually rated four stars and not five? Well, yes. But let me explain. First of all, you need to know TOWER OF DAWN runs parallel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. It is not a sequel to EMPIRE OF STORMS. So remove the latter from your memory for a moment and go back to […]

5 Things About Gap Year in Ghost Town

5 Things About Gap Year in Ghost Town

October 31, 2017 Review 12 ★★★★

A different kind of Halloween read This is a book about ghosts, but it’s not a scary haunting thriller type ghost story. It’s much lighter and more enjoyable. Which I’m grateful for because ghost stories creep me out. Percy Jackson x Supernatural I know we hate book comparisons, but this just fits so well! Anton reminds me a lot of […]

Minotes #3: Whiddershin’s Adventures in the Sea of Shadows

Minotes #3: Whiddershin’s Adventures in the Sea of Shadows

October 28, 2017 Review 6

While my reading dramatically decreases when I have exams, it doesn’t stop completely. So I did manage to read four books over the last few months. And for the sake of posting some sort of content, I’d thought it would be a good idea to do some mini reviews for them. Albeit crappy reviews because guess who didn’t take any […]
