Giveaway (AUS) & Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter – Multiple Lives, Different Ways

Going into Firstlife, I was optimistic about the two lives concept, where you have two chances to live. Myriad believes in wealth and reincarnation, that your first life is merely a rehearsal before reaping the rewards in the afterlife. They believe that your soul is reborn after your second death. Troika, believes that both lives matter as much as […]

Fantasy Reviews #3: Burning Midnight & Reawakened

Fantasy Reviews #3: Burning Midnight & Reawakened

The coloured spheres have different abilities that get progressively cooler depending on how rare they are. Want to become better looking, improve your hearing, get a higher IQ or my favourite – read faster? There’s a sphere for everything. The […]

Winter by Marissa Meyer Review: Fangirling over my OTPs

Winter by Marissa Meyer Review: Fangirling over my OTPs

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 […]

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff Review: DOES NOT COMPUTE

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff Review: DOES NOT COMPUTE

I am just a ball of emotion right now. A rollercoaster of feels. A basket of incomprehensible emotions. What a stunning way to tell a story! The most attractive thing about Illuminae is the way it tells a story through a range of data files – interviews, chat logs, surveillance footage wrapups and the thoughts of AIDAN, an […]

The Next Together by Lauren James Review: True Love Transcends Time

The Next Together by Lauren James Review: True Love Transcends Time

The Next Together has a unique concept that blends contemporary with historical and sci-fi elements, into a mysterious and thrilling story. It was this unique concept of reincarnation and time-travel that drew me to this book. Besides, who doesn’t love a good romance that transcends time and history? This novel is written as four separate […]
