Short Review: THE BONE WITCH by Rin Chupeco

This isn’t what I was expecting at all. I wasn’t expecting the perspective to flip back and forth. I wasn’t expecting so many different branches of magic. I wasn’t expecting to not like this one as much as I did. I expected to fall in love with this story. I expected to rave about itContinue reading “Short Review: THE BONE WITCH by Rin Chupeco”

Short Review: WE CONTAIN MULTITUDES by Sarah Henstra

I’m going to preface this with: I’m not good at letter-based books. To the right reader this could be a 5-star read. It has the potential and the charisma. It’s funny with depth. It’ll definitely take you on a rollercoaster of emotions both good and bad. It has unexpected twists. It has expected twists withContinue reading “Short Review: WE CONTAIN MULTITUDES by Sarah Henstra”

Short Review: INSTANT KARMA by Marissa Meyer

This book wasn’t really what I expected. With a title like ‘Instant Karma’, I thought that the karma aspect of the book would have more of an influence on the plot and the characters. The entire karma aspect seemed to take a backseat while we experience what could only be described as a ‘contemporary romance’Continue reading “Short Review: INSTANT KARMA by Marissa Meyer”

Short Review: THE COUSINS by Karen M. McManus

Not my favourite from Karen M McManus. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Karen as an author. She has incredible writing with characters that feel so real they might as well be sitting next to you as you read. One of Us is Lying is still my favourite from her and this one doesn’tContinue reading “Short Review: THE COUSINS by Karen M. McManus”

Short Review: A KINGDOM OF FLESH AND FIRE by Jennifer L Armentrout (Blood & Ash #2)

I mentioned in my first review that From Blood and Ash wasn’t worth the hype it received. Do I think the same for the sequel? Absolutely not. A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire (AKOFAF) was DEFINITELY worth the hype. It starts with a beginning that drags on for a pinch. It had me doubting thisContinue reading “Short Review: A KINGDOM OF FLESH AND FIRE by Jennifer L Armentrout (Blood & Ash #2)”

Short Review: THE HEART FORGER by Rin Chupeco (The Bone Witch #2)

3.5 stars. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Bone Witch but as I’ve started reading the series and I own them all, I’m making sure that I finish them. The Heart Forger was a step up from the first in the series. Despite almost giving it the same star rating, it definitely was ableContinue reading “Short Review: THE HEART FORGER by Rin Chupeco (The Bone Witch #2)”

Short Review: FROM BLOOD AND ASH by Jennifer L Armentrout (Blood and Ash #1)

4.5 stars. It wasn’t what I expected. When I picked up From Blood and Ash, with a pile of 5 star reviews and high expectations resting on its shoulders, I expected it to be my next favourite. That’s the bad thing about over-hyped books, it steals the luxury of experiencing the shock and realisation thatContinue reading “Short Review: FROM BLOOD AND ASH by Jennifer L Armentrout (Blood and Ash #1)”

Short Review: THE PRISON HEALER by Lynette Noni (The Prison Healer #1)

THE PRISON HEALER – LYNETTE NONI (The Prison Healer #1)  Holy smokes! DAMN.   Read it. Read it. Read it.   You HAVE to get your hands on this phenomenal novel by Australian author (REPRESENT!) Lynette Noni. This is her third series and it completely knocked my socks off. Having always maintained the ability, Lynette Noni will shock you in waysContinue reading “Short Review: THE PRISON HEALER by Lynette Noni (The Prison Healer #1)”

Short Review: A MONSTER CALLS by Patrick Ness

Phenomenal. This blew my expectations out of the water. I was not expecting A Monster Calls to grip at my heart and yank it right out of my chest. It follows young Conor through the heartbreaking nature of his mother having cancer. With a monster that visits him at the same time every day, ConorContinue reading “Short Review: A MONSTER CALLS by Patrick Ness”

Short Review: TEEN TITANS: BEAST BOY by Kami Garcia & Gabriel Picolo

I love the visit back into a world I haven’t seen since I was a little girl. I remember sitting in front of the T.V as a wee one, watching Beast Boy and the rest take on the bad guys. I knew I had to read these graphic novels when I heard about their release.Continue reading “Short Review: TEEN TITANS: BEAST BOY by Kami Garcia & Gabriel Picolo”
