5 Things about Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

5 Things about Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

April 20, 2018 Review 10 ★★★★★

This is a hard review to write There is no way this review is in any way objective and unbiased because I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I read it in two sittings. It would have been one if I didn’t have to sleep. SKY IN THE DEEP was just the perfect light(er) read for me (though when I say light, […]

5 Things about Soundless by Richelle Mead

5 Things about Soundless by Richelle Mead

January 3, 2016 Review 44 ★★★

It’s a short standalone SOUNDLESS is only 250 pages or so, which makes for a very quick read with a simple, straightforward plot.

Review: The First Third by Will Kostakis

Review: The First Third by Will Kostakis

January 18, 2015 Review 30 ★★★

One of the things I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time is read more Australian fiction. Not just books written by Aussies, but books set in the country I’ve grown up in. THE FIRST THIRD is the first book with an Aussie setting I’ve read in a very long time. It’s set in Sydney with a brief stop in Melbourne, two cities I’ve only briefly spent time in, but it was familiar none the less. The sayings and character’s personalities and stuff all felt so familiar. Read more »
