Armada by Ernest Cline Review: Geeky Sci-Fi Book, I Wanted to Love You

Armada by Ernest Cline Review: Geeky Sci-Fi Book, I Wanted to Love You

You know when you love a book so much that nothing could ever live up to it? That was Ready Player One. So naturally, I was highly anticipating Armada, thinking it was going to be equally as awesome. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. While Ready Player One successfully made gaming and 80’s pop culture references accessible […]

This is a spoiler-free review for the book and the series.  Sarah J. Maas you have done it again. You have managed to tease out every emotion from the human spectrum with Queen of Shadows. Fear, for the characters’ safety. Horror, at the monsters at Morath. Courage, for a disabled slave. Happiness, at characters reunited. Loneliness, for […]

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness Review: Give Me The Chosen Ones

It took me a while to get my head around The Rest of Us Just Live Here. It reads exactly like a contemporary novel, but on the back of Mikey’s love for his best friend and struggles with his politician mum and alcoholic dad, there’s dead things coming back to life, indie kids dying and other supernatural occurrences […]
