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: 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”

Short Review: ALL THE STARS AND TEETH by Adalyn Grace

I’ll be honest, this isn’t my favourite fantasy read. It wasn’t necessarily bad; it just wasn’t particularly realistic in some areas. I know what you’re thinking: “Tash, it’s a FANTASY novel”, and you’re right. That’s not the part that isn’t realistic. Our main character, Amora Montara is forced on a journey with a pirate andContinue reading “Short Review: ALL THE STARS AND TEETH by Adalyn Grace”

Short Review: A COURT OF SILVER FLAMES by Sarah J Maas

Sarah J Maas has been a favourite author of mine since I read her first novel back in 2012. Throne of Glass had won my heart with the sassy lead and relatable characters. Since then, Sarah J Maas has only continued to flourish as an author. Reading A Court of Silver Flames, the fourth instalmentContinue reading “Short Review: A COURT OF SILVER FLAMES by Sarah J Maas”
