Every Heart a Doorway | 5 star review

This book surprised me in so many ways. I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting from a book all about children who had been on such wonderful adventures to find themselves disenchanted with the real world – somwhere they didn’t feel they belonged anymore. Well, what can I say other than it blew me away, the story is such an original take on something that we all ask ourselves after reading one of the adventures? I think one thing […]

Royal Tour | 4 star review

Royal Tour is the second book in the series – you should check out my review of The Poison Diaries! I loved this book, I thought it was a great sequel and a good addition to an already fun series. Royal Tour goes into the story of the Kemi family in more detail and develops the characters from The Poison Diaries, we learn an awful lot about the country and the history of the characters. I think the deeper look […]

Still Alice | 5 star review

I listened to this book on Audible and I’m so glad I did. This book is perfect on audiobook, you become completely submerged in the story. I think you begin to notice some of the things you wouldn’t have if you were reading it on the page. I have so much to say about this book, and how it made me feel – I literally couldn’t stop thinking about it for days after. It had such a big impact. I […]

The Potion Diaries | 5 star review

The Potion Diaries was a reread and I’m so glad I spent the time going back because I had forgotten so many wonderful details about the world and the people that are in it. I definitely think that this book is a complete feel-good book, one that you can pick up and read in a matter of days and feel completely good about reading it. There are no lingering hard to deal with feelings, just all the warm fuzzies. I […]

Crime Fiction Recommendation #1 : The Cuckoo’s Calling

One genre I never really step foot in was crime, I could never find a series that I really enjoyed the story of and the characters or didn’t work out who the killer was and how the crime was committed – which was my biggest problem with The Girl on the Train. So I stayed away knowing that reading bad books was a waste of my time, however, I have found a couple of series and I wanted to share at least […]

The Dark Days Club | 2 star review

This book drove me crazy  – it was one of the books I wanted to read for YALC 2017. The characters were awful and the plotline was so underdeveloped and I almost had to put the book down on many occasions. It was so slow and the plot took forever to actually kick into action – even then I struggled with the pacing. Following Lady Helen in her need for perfection and finding the perfect husband, it was a draining experience, […]

The One Memory of Flora Banks | 3 star review

I have given this book for my birthday and I heard some really great things about the characters and the storyline. So I was so excited to read all about the girl who has no short term memory, and the adventure that she goes on. I don’t quite know what I was expecting but this wasn’t it. The one thing I found in this book was that it was SUPER repetitive, which I suppose makes sense with the main character […]

Our Dark Duet | 4 star review

Our Dark Duet is the second in a series so you should definitely check out my This Savage Song book review first! I was so excited to jump right into this book and I can’t say I was disappointed either. I will say that this plotline was slightly weaker than This Savage Song. But the characters seemed to battle some really interesting personal struggles throughout the entire story. There was an awful lot of growth and development that by the end […]

YALC 2017!

Okay so this is my big event for July – I will be attending YALC 2017 and this is how I chose all the books on my July TBR! If you don’t know what YALC is – it stands for Young Adult Literature Convention, and basically, it’s an event where lots of young adult authors congregate and talk about issues within the genre and what their process is. It’s a great place to meet new people and plus we get […]
