Ghosts of the Shadow Market Review: All the Parabatai Feels

Ghosts of the Shadow Market Review: All the Parabatai Feels

Warning: This review is mostly spoiler free but may contain minor spoilers for The Infernal Devices. The book itself contains spoilers for The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and The Dark Artifices. I’ve never hidden my love for the Shadowhunter books and it’s definitely no secret that my favourite YA series is The Infernal Devices. So when […]

The Red Scrolls of Magic Review: A Fun Time for Malec Fans

The Red Scrolls of Magic Review: A Fun Time for Malec Fans

The Red Scrolls of Magic is the first book in a Shadowhunters spin-off trilogy featuring Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood. It takes place after the first three books of The Mortal Instruments and before City of Fallen Angels. However, I think the book can definitely be read without having read TMI or any of the other Shadowhunter books – though you […]

Serious Moonlight Review: A Seriously Good Book

Serious Moonlight Review: A Seriously Good Book

Serious Moonlight is by far my favourite contemporary YA novel that I’ve read so far this year. Granted, there hasn’t been a single Jenn Bennett book that I haven’t loved, but Serious Moonlight is my absolute favourite of everything that she has ever written. I loved the setting, the characters, the issues discussed, the mystery and just the […]

5 Things I Liked About What I Like About Me

5 Things I Liked About What I Like About Me

I wasn’t sure what to expect from What I Like About Me because the synopsis reminded me so much of Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy, with the beauty pageant and body positivity aspects. But What I Like About Me is definitely a vastly different book to Dumplin’. It is very quintessentially Australian and I related to it much more than I related to Dumplin’ because […]

Jenna’s Mid-Year Life Review
