When I first heard of Dumplin’, I was really excited. Self-proclaimed fat girl enters beauty pageant? Uhm, how about yes, please. It seemed like the ultimate eff-you to beauty standards and generally awesome. And, well, I must admit I did love that aspect of the book, but I wasn’t completely smitten with it as a whole. My main problem with Dumplin’ is that I just didn’t really click with it. The story is good, the characters are solid, but I just felt this sort of detachment […]

Every Last Word is one of those books that had me wanting to smash it into a pulp from page 1, but had me sobbing my eyes out sniffling a bit during the last few chapters. This story follows Sam, a girl dealing who was diagnosed with Purely Obsessional OCD (aka Pure-O) at the age of 11. While she may look perfectly fine on the outside, each day she is battling with the uncontrollable thoughts that consume her. I wasn’t quite sure I picked up […]

Well. I have absolutely no idea how I’m going to review this. There is so little I can say without spoiling, but I’m going to try regardless. 99 Days is about Molly Barlow, who returns to Star Lake after spending some time elsewhere. She is not happy to be back, especially since just about everyone seems to hate her. The reason for that is that she did some… stupid things a while back. (I have to be vague about this, sorry guys.) And now she’s back, and she’s […]

Thank you The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club for organizing this tour! This one was calling my name everybody. Historical fiction? Film noir? Murder? The Golden Age of Hollywood? Sign me up. The Film noir aspect of Dead to Me was certainly not disappointing.  Shady side characters you can never trust, ambiguous morals, murder, corruption everywhere, private investigators, femme fatales were all placed within the jungle of an urban city. It felt like the perfect remembrance to Film noir, even encompassing that hard to truly […]

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 […]

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 […]

This review is COMPLETELY spoiler free Veronica Mars is a recent addiction and addition to my oh-so-monotonous life. As I write this review, it’s the last day of my summer holidays before I’m back at school for the new school year—and just less than two months earlier when the holidays started, I clicked play on the very first episode of the Veronica Mars TV series. I soon became absolutely smitten with the TV show (maaaaaaybe because of Logan Echolls) and I soon jumped […]

*this review ended up quite lengthy, so I ended up bolding important points for those who don’t want/don’t have the time to read everything This is my first read by Holly Black, and I’m most certainly impressed. She has an undeniable and unique writing style. It’s one that fits the magical and wondrous, yet, creepy and dark world of this novel to a tee. With her words she’ll hook you, alike how a will-o’-the-wisp lures entranced and unsuspecting humans from safe paths. …..Okay, […]
