The Crown’s Game Review: Now You Like It, Now You Don’t

The Crown’s Game Review: Now You Like It, Now You Don’t

Two enchanting opponents, each with their unique powers pitted against a stunning Russian backdrop – what’s not to love about The Crown’s Game? Apparently a lot, judging from my initial comedown after finishing the book.

Therefore, this is going to be a tough review. What I liked Supernatural setting. When I first read the blurb, I thought it […]

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes Review: Highly Unexpected

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes Review: Highly Unexpected

A religious cult with brainwashed fanatics. A headstrong girl with no hands. Leaving one prison for another. Despite it’s subject matter, The Scared Lies of Minnow Bly avoids every single cliche with cults, disability and inmates and is one of the most powerful and compelling books I’ve read all year. The story is highly unexpected, starting with Minnow covered in […]
