Giveaway & Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer

Giveaway & Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer

After watching and loving DC’s Wonder Woman in cinemas earlier this year, I was excited to find out that one of my favourite authors would be retelling her origin story. The only difference? Instead of Diana’s love interest landing on Themyscira, where she’s tempted into the “world of man”, it’s a young woman who appears instead. It […]

Holding Up The Universe Review: Those Moves and That Swagger

Holding Up The Universe Review: Those Moves and That Swagger

Being about a fat girl and a guy who suffers from face blindness, Holding Up the Universe was a fearless, inspirational hot mess. I don’t know whether I love or hate Libby Strout. She’s incredibly insecure […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer Review: Fangirling over my OTPs

Winter by Marissa Meyer Review: Fangirling over my OTPs

What a beautiful ending to my favourite Lunar Chronicles series! There were so many beautiful moments throughout the book. At 800 pages, the book never drags or slows down. This is war, where Cinder rallies the Lunar Citizens to overtake Levana’s mind control rule. I wasn’t quite prepared for the bloody massacre within the book, and the […]

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – Book & Movie Review

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – Book & Movie Review

You know when you finish a book and it leaves you without an impression? That’s how I feel about The 5th Wave. It was actually quite a long and convoluted book, with many varying points of views (some completely unnecessary and which did not impact the story at all). But upon finishing, I didn’t get the answers […]
