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 […]

Black Iris by Leah Reader Review: Watch the World Burn

Black Iris by Leah Reader Review: Watch the World Burn

Dark, irresistible and captivating, Black Iris is undefinable. With fluid sexual orientations, substance abuse, a range of psychological issues and an unreliable narrator, it’s a dark and disturbing story that can only be read with an open mind.

A few scenes had me suspending my disbelief and the whole book lacked emotional connection. Connecting to the main character is a major part of enjoying a book, and even in the second book, I still […]

Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan Review: Hilarious Norse Mythology

Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan Review: Hilarious Norse Mythology

Magnus Chase is one of the funniest books I’ve ever read. So many scenes made me laugh out loud, from the fashionable dwarf Blitzen, to the TV addicted Thor, to the scary giant squirrel and the most hilarious talking sword in existence. I’ve only ever encountered one other talking sword before, but Jack is hilarious, with a […]
