I have no idea how to review Little Peach properly. The book itself didn’t manage to really get me, as the writing style and such weren’t really my thing, but on the other hand this is such an important and powerful subject… I am conflicted. One thing is certain, and that is that this is an important book. Little Peach tackles a tough subject, but it’s a subject that needs to be tackled. After all, this happens to girls all over the world, every day. Every single […]

This is a  novel that came as a surprise to me, I didn’t except to love it as much as I did. It’s been a couple months and it’s inarguable that this achingly true to life tale has has wormed its way deep, deep, deeeeep into my heart. Even now, I can still remember details about the novel and recall that truly captivating pleasure I gained while reading Mosquitoland. Mosquitoland: the thorn in my side, the rock in my shoe, the poison […]

Helloooooo there people on Planet Earth! We’re probably the very last people in the entire universe to do this tag, so it’s time we jumped on the bandwagon and answered your questions! So, we were tagged 9 times to do this tag…meaning 10 questions from each person meaning 90 questions all together. O.O Buuuuut since there’s 3 of us Midnightians, you’d be reading 270 answers. I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty tiresome for both us and you readers. Instead, we just […]

Being someone who hasn’t read anything by Ally Carter before, I went into this book… not expecting all that much. But knowing that Ms. Carter’s previous books have all been something along the lines of a mystery thriller-y espionage kinda thing, let me assure you now, this isn’t anything like that. Heck, this book is definitely something that I wouldn’t think you’ve picked up beforehand. It’s original right to it’s roots. All Fall Down combines a world of diplomacy and the repercussions of death into […]

With it’s witty humour and cuteness in general, I can definitely see why Erin Gough’s YA debut, The Flywheel, won The Ampersand Project. Just as some general knowledge, Melissa Keil’s Life in Outer Space was the winner from a previous year that Hardie Grant Egmont Australia picked up, so if you trust their tastes, then you should most certainly check this one out as well! I mean, seriously, who can go wrong with Aussie YA? 4 Reasons Why You Should Read The Flywheel 1. It’s a LGBTQ+ themed Aussie […]

Red Queen was a pleasant suprise! Of course, I’d long been lusting after that cover *coughs*. I wasn’t sure whether I would like the story itself, though, but it turns out that I did! Red Queen is full of intrigue and twists and turns and magic, and it was an extremely fun and fast read. In the world of Red Queen, everyone is divided based on the colour of their blood. Red means lowly, it makes you a commoner at best and a servant at […]
