5 Things About Emilie and the Hollow World

5 Things About Emilie and the Hollow World

October 18, 2016 Review 16 ★★★

Let’s go on a steampunk adventure HELL YEAH STEAMPUNK! A genre I love and don’t get to read enough. EMILIE AND THE HOLLOW WORLD combines fantasy with steampunk. There are air ships and pistols and interesting gadgets combined with magic and parallel worlds. So many different concepts I love all together in one place! I thought it was middle grade […]

Review: The Weight of Zero by Karen Fortunati

Review: The Weight of Zero by Karen Fortunati

October 10, 2016 Review 10 ★★★½

A Realistic Look At Mental Illness Finally, finally, a realistic book about mental illness. THE WEIGHT OF ZERO does not pull any punches when it comes to describing what it is really like to suffer from something like bipolar disorder. This book was special to me because I have severe anxiety. I did online schooling for part of my senior […]

5 Things About A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

October 5, 2016 Review 14 ★★★

It’s so interesting how one single choice/ action can create such drastic changes while also keeping some things similar. My favourite world […]

  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 […]

5 Things About Red Glove by Holly Black

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 […]

Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

August 26, 2016 Review 34 ★★★★

I can’t even tell you guys how long I have been waiting to get my hands on this book. I’ve heard so many great things about Morgan Matson’s books and I wanted this to be my first read by her. Why? It’s simple. Because of… THE DOGS. So am I biased? Maybe. But even if you don’t like dogs (who […]
