DNF Review: Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near

DNF Review: Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near

March 8, 2018 Review 10 DNF

I hate DNFing so much, and it frustrates me that my first DNF of 2018 happened so early on. But I wasn’t going to force myself to go on when I have many other books staring me down. Especially with a book I actually had attempted to start at the end of last year but put aside for other novels. […]

5 Things about The Undercurrent by Paula Weston

5 Things about The Undercurrent by Paula Weston

March 5, 2018 Review 2 ★★★½

#LoveOzYA Paula Weston is a #LoveOzYA author I’ve seen a lot of, but haven’t read before now. And I must say I really enjoyed THE UNDERCURRENT! Especially since it is set in a very near future Australia (only 20 or so years in the future), and features locations that I’ve visited myself. And not just big cities, I’m talking obscure […]

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

February 27, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

“No matter how careful I am, eventually I’ll make another misstep. I am weak. I am fragile. I am mortal.” Not what I expected at all I think from the synopsis and hype I was sort of expecting THE CRUEL PRINCE to be a mix of A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES and AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS. However, it definitely […]

5 Things about Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

5 Things about Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

February 21, 2018 Review 8 ★★½

Another Queen of Hearts Retelling There was a big trend of these for a bit not long ago. Or at least, it felt like there was. The only other one I can think of is HEARTLESS (which, to be fair, was released after QUEEN OF HEARTS). But anyway, in this novel it wasn’t too clear this was exactly a villain […]

The Importance of Negative Reviews

The Importance of Negative Reviews

February 15, 2018 Discussion 30

This post is a bit late (when all the stuff that inspired it was happening, I was not in the right mood for blogging), but it’s a post that will fits any time really. Because the thing that inspired it is something that’s been repeated time and time again: A select few authors getting in a tizzy over negative reviews […]
