Warning: this review contains untagged spoilers and unpopular opinions. Read at your own risk! Oh dear. I am so, so sad to be writing this review. You see, I love Sarah J. Maas. As in, love. Her Throne of Glass series gets more heartbreaking with every book and I’d dare call it one of my favourite series. Naturally, I was extremely excited for A Court of Thorns and Roses, so much so that I preordered it, which I almost never do. As soon as it got to my […]

When Joss Met Matt is not a type of book I’d normally pick up at the bookstore. I do not read much NA at all, due to several reasons. One of them being that the majority of NA novels I’ve encountered seem to follow the same recipe each time. The same tropes, the same clichés; you get the point. Anyway, when I found out that this book was actually written by one of my favourite contemporary authors—Liz Czukas (under the pen name […]

Before I go into my review, let me just clear up that this is a new adult novel. The characters have finished high school and most of them are twentyish, there’s a bit of sex that was described a little more than what you’d find in a YA novel. Just mentioning this because Goodreads has it shelved most as YA and that’s definitely not correct. I would have liked to know beforehand, y’know? Nonetheless, that didn’t affect my enjoyment. Anyway. I’m quite […]

I guess this just goes to show how much of a wimp I am. I nearly ran to my parent’s room because I could hear tiny creaking noises in the floorboard after reading a clearly not so scary scene for everyone else. I. Scare. Easily. Tim thinks it’s a huge stroke of luck when he finds a not only dirt cheap, but also huge expensive house up for sale. However here’s the catch, he has to live with the owner of the […]

Two Roads, L. M. Augustine’s latest, offered a humorous dialogue, sweet revenge plotting and a cute romance. However this novel is not all just a romance, this novel deals with dark issues in an unpitying way such as death and self-esteem. Despite this, the label of NA did not really seem to work for me and authentic-y was questioned as I progressed through. Unlike Click To Subscribe, the author creates two characters that are complete enemies and slowly, throughout the story, draw […]

The Bone Season is a highly complex novel with an incommensurable set of characters and an intense plot line. While the first quarter can be fairly daunting- with ranges of bumps such as platitudinously boring snippets and info dumping- The Bone Season has a lot to give and promise for future instalments. But I’ll tell you now, do not expect Harry Potter. I have no idea who decided that this would be the next Harry Potter but that’s a large mouthful and […]
