So the air was acid. The water was misery. The ground was broken glass. Everything here was designed to hurt and kill. I have never been a fan of including gifs. in my reviews however The House of Hades, calls for some exception. Not only have I been dying for a year to read this, but also because right now, I’m a mess of emotions and words. I mean, I was already crying when my mum snagged a copy for me while […]

What if one small decision could change your life forever? What if you chose the wrong one? And what if, both choices have their own pros and cons? I have really enjoyed Cat Patrick’s novels in the past, so when I saw this on pop up on Goodreads, I immediately took up the opportunity to read this, hoping for another fun, sci-fi type contemporary. However that wasn’t really the case. Caroline’s grandmother has just been taken to hospital, and the entire family […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. What’s been happening lately… Hello there loverlies!

Ever since my science teacher showed our class this video with a guy having a tapeworm on him; and him actually finding it funny and I even remember him saying, “Let’s name him George!” You could say I am not awfully fond of tapeworms or any other parasite. However when I saw Parasite, my curiosity got the better of me as I picked it up- and actually found myself enjoying it. A little gross, creepy and twisted, while Parasite may be labelled […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. — Hello everyone and happy Friday! It’s Stephanie from Chasm of Books here. I have been thinking about what to talk about all week and finally, (the day before) I thought of something! Yes, I woke up Thursday morning and thought, oh crap, I still haven’t written a Friday Couple *cough* Discussing Through Midnight. No, I can’t possibly be two posts behind…. But it finally came […]

Bleh, sorry for the sucky formatting, people! I am still sucking at formatting tour stops on WordPress. Find Me is one of those books that will keep you hooked throughout the whole book- despite a few minor flaws. The strong highlight definitely was in the characters however the romance was also a rather favourable aspect. There is no point hiding it that I did make my expectations lower quite indeed-ly however I still believe that I would have enjoyed Romily’s debut all […]
