Our Chemical Hearts Review: My Heart Wasn’t Really In It…

Our Chemical Hearts Review: My Heart Wasn’t Really In It…

Contemporary is my favourite genre but unfortunately Our Chemical Hearts fell into the sub-category of contemporary that I don’t enjoy reading. I couldn’t connect with the characters or their stories at all and almost gave up after 100 pages. The ending did redeem the book slightly but overall, the novel was a bit unmemorable and […]

Empire of Storms Review: Should Be Called Empire of Ships, Amirite

Empire of Storms Review: Should Be Called Empire of Ships, Amirite

Emerging from my Empire of Storms slumber, I rise and attempt to tell you my jumbled thoughts about it. I’m constantly in awe of this expansive fantasy world that Sarah J Maas has created, filled with wyverns, magic, fae lords, witches, pirate lords, hidden armies and evil.
