Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

Review: By Your Side by Kasie West

October 13, 2017 Review 5 ★★

  I usually eat up and enjoy any of Kasie West’s books like candy. The characters tend to have a lot of depth for a short YA romance book, but I can’t say that was true for BY YOUR SIDE. The whole premise of this novel sort of revolves around two very different people getting stuck over the weekend in […]

5 Things About the Secret Science of Magic by Melissa Keil

5 Things About the Secret Science of Magic by Melissa Keil

October 7, 2017 Review 5 ★★★★

I’m apologising in advance that this review is going to be vague and probably poorly written. I finished this book a month or two ago but have been too busy studying for exams (which I passed btw) to actually finish this review until now. Loveozya Our fantastic Australian talent is so underrated in the overseas market. A few big hits […]

LoveOzYA PROMOTE ALL THE AUSSIE BOOKS!! Vikki Wakefield is an author I’ve heard nothing but good things about, and I’m so glad I can add her to my list of Aussie Authors read.

5 Things About Yellow by Megan Jacobson

5 Things About Yellow by Megan Jacobson

July 11, 2017 Review 10 ★★★★

Short, fast, and easy Being as busy as I am with Uni, short books are my thing atm (at least, in an attempt to keep up with reviews on the blog). I’m so tired by the time I’m done with the day that I don’t want to think too much. YELLOW was the perfect book; easy to read and follow, […]

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

June 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I don’t think I’ve ever felt this conflicted when trying to review a book. Even as I’m writing this, I’m not sure what I’m going to rate it. There are just so many thoughts about it floating around my head. So this review has turned into more of a discussion style, which I haven’t written in so long. As a side note before […]

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

March 18, 2017 Review 24 ★★★★

It didn’t break my emotions After ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES I was kind of terrified to read this. That book broke me and had me sobbing at some ungodly late hour (FINCH FEELS). HOLDING UP THE UNIVERSE doesn’t pack anywhere near as painful a punch. It is a much more positive, uplifting novel with less pain and angst. Another important […]

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 […]
