This novel had quite the premise, it appealed to me on every level. I mean come on, historical fiction coupled up with a complex blackmail scenario? Sign me up. Unfortunately with Tangled Webs I found myself simply unable to finish it. I ended up marking it as DNF at 30 percent just because I was so, so, so detached and bored out of my mind. The biggest issue for me was definitely the writing in this one. It just read as so bland and typical, […]

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 […]

It seemed like the perfect mixture, my two favorite sub-genres in YA (fairytale retellings and crime novels) coming together.  However, the execution of the aforementioned left a little bit […]

I’ve read this book a little bit ago and remember enjoying it, but now when it comes to writing this review right now I can’t remember really much about the book. I suppose that’s something to note about Chasing Power, though it’s a whole lot of adventurous fun it’s not particularly impactful nor memorable. At first my reaction to this book wasn’t entirely positive as I found myself not getting into the book for a solid 20 percent. However when Kayla meets Daniel, the story […]

Discussion review by Melanie and Celine *this review is spoiler-free* Celine: Okay, so… Heir of Fire. I think this is going to be an interesting discussion because it’s pretty much the first time we’ve had differing opinions on a book! 😛 Melanie: Right? I did enjoy it overall, but when I look back and think about it, I didn’t love it that much. One of the main reasons being because it felt really boring for me. This book felt so much slower and the plot […]
