5 Books I Desperately Want to be Video Games

November 14, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 14

This year my sister bought a PS4 and my game consumption has increased immensely. As a result, I’ve gained a new appreciation for this visual mode for story telling. It’s made me start thinking of all the stories I’ve read that I’d love to play through just to immerse myself in the world and story more! The Nevernight Chronicles The first […]

5 Things About Gilded by Christina Farley

August 20, 2017 Review 10 ★★★

Korean Mythology I love all types of mythology, and it was so exciting to see GILDED come out with it’s heavy Korean influence. Korean culture is something I know very little part. Luckily for use, the mythology plays a heavy part in the story of GILDED! I could not deal with the romance The romance is what ruined the book […]

The access to review copies is one of the greatest privileges of a book reviewer’s life… but it’s also one of the biggest pains.  Don’t get me wrong, I am very grateful to receive review copies from publishers.

Pros and Cons of Cover Changes

Pros and Cons of Cover Changes

March 26, 2016 Discussion 61

  Cover changes are one of the things that haunt many a bookworm’s nightmares. Many of us are perfectionists at heart and when the covers of our favourite series change we have been known to riot. One recent example: the Winner’s Trilogy cover change (then re-change) a few months ago. I have never seen the book community unite so quickly […]
