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”

Tiggity Tag: Book Characters and Me Book Tag

I’ve decided to take a break from stealing everyone else’s tags and create my own. That’s a joke by the way — I always give credit where credit is due. Just this time, the credit goes to me. Anywho!

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)”

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”
