5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

5 Things About Etiquette & Espionage

March 25, 2017 Review 22 ★★★½

Steampunk Gallagher Girls Gallagher Girls was one of my favourite books when I was in high school, and when I first heard of this, the whole finishing school for spies thing, I immediately thought about Gallagher Girls. Lucky for me, what I expected is what I got! The spy lessons don’t take the forefront of the plot, but they’re mentioned […]

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact

March 12, 2017 Review 4 ★★★★

Brilliant atmosphere Alison Goodman puts an insane amount of research into this series and it really pays off. The world building is amazing and creates a brilliant atmosphere. The description makes everything so vivid. More fights scenes and action Lady Helen is finally out of her parents house and free to begin Reclaimer training. Which means more action, and more […]

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 […]

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

5 Things About Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

February 23, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★½

Victorian Era Forensics If I’m going to read a crime novel, it’s going to be a historical one! Victorian and regency eras in particular seem to be my favourites. As a fan of science, I love seeing how it’s used to solve things without modern advancements. The vet side of me also loves the autopsies and science things. I’m a […]

5 Things About Crimson Bound By Rosamund Hodge

5 Things About Crimson Bound By Rosamund Hodge

November 23, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★

Fairy Tale Retelling Retellings are some of the great comfort reads I love to pick up when I’m stressed all struggling. I love being able to not only visit a familiar tale, but also explore a new take on it. CRIMSON BOUND is a bit of a mix of Red Riding Hood elements with some Hansel and Gretel influences, but […]

5 Things About A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

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 […]

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

September 24, 2016 Review 36 ★★★★★

Spoiler free, just a few non-spoilery quotes! Once again, I find myself in the Post-Maas What Do I Do With My Life Crisis. As of right now, I’m sort of in denial and have convinced myself that everything is okay. I just got off a totally crazy roller coaster but I am going to be okay. “A storm is coming. […]
