Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little Review: In Which Lots of Camel References Are Made

Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little Review: In Which Lots of Camel References Are Made

I remember when this book first came out, I was all “ewww it sounds like there’s a love triangle” and read reviews that lamented about the romance. And from that, I endeavored to stay away from it. However, I kept on seeing it lately (especially with the sequel releasing recently), and when I remembered that […]

The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine Review: Let’s Start A Petition To Ban All Apples

The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine Review: Let’s Start A Petition To Ban All Apples

This fast-paced retelling of Snow White was full of fun, adventure, and swoons as we follow Lorelai and her path to reclaiming the throne of Ravenspire. From the very beginning, I loved her character. She was courageous and knew how to fight back. She may have been based on Snow White, but she certainly isn’t […]

Chimera by Mira Grant Review: Survival of the Fittest

Chimera by Mira Grant Review: Survival of the Fittest

This review does not contain any series spoilers.  Reading this series is always a delightfully horrific and philosophical experience. Being centered around a scientific experiment gone wrong, causing tapeworms that were meant to be the end of human disease and suffering to overtake their hosts, it gets pretty squeamish during some parts. That’s part of […]

Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin Review: Boy or girl? Does it matter?

Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin Review: Boy or girl? Does it matter?

The issue that Symptoms of Being Human tackles is something I’ve never read before.

I […]

Set in a historical setting, These Vicious Masks features a set of vibrant characters with supernatural powers that have the power to change the world – in both good and bad ways.

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 […]
