After Alice | 2 star review

I picked up After Alice after I failed to finish Wicked purely because I thought with it being a smaller book I might be able to get through this one and finish it. I did finish this one but I struggled all the way through. This book was boring, there’s no other word for it, I was bored all the way through. I just think the way the story was laid out was wrong, it made the story feel cumbersome […]

The Wrath and the Dawn | 2.5 Star Review

The Wrath and the Dawn was a book that was ridiculously hyped in the book community so my expectations going in were super high, and it was the last book on my August TBR. I have to say this book really disappointed me, I was hoping that it would go in a different way than it ended up going. I only have one word to describe this book and believe me it’s going to be repeated a lot as this […]

The Diviners | 2 star review

The Diviners was a book on my 2018 books I need to read list, and I have to say I have to agree with my best friend when she said it wasn’t the greatest. I think the main problem with this book is the characters and the lack of depth and explanation. I think far too much emphasis was put on the setting, which by the way was so detailed. The Diviners is set in 1920s New York and this […]

Caraval | 2.5 star review

I had such high hopes for Caraval and I was left completely disappointed. I think I’m the only person who thinks this way if the reviews on Goodreads are anything to go by. What annoys me about this book the most would be the unused potential, I think this book got lost halfway with what it was supposed to be. I was expecting something along the lines of The Night Circus which I REALLY enjoyed, but this fell completely flat […]

Through the Zombie Glass | 2 star review

* I have written a review for the first book in the series here. So check that out before reading this review of Through the Zombie Glass! I jumped straight into Through the Zombie Glass as soon as I had finished Alice in Zombieland, I think the “tropiness” of it was contagious and I wanted to carry on living in the world and learning about the characters. I have to say that this book definitely was more angst filled than […]

Grasshopper Jungle | 2 star review

I am so impressed with myself, Grasshopper Jungle was one of the books on my 2018 Must Read list, and I got two in one month! I will say Grasshopper Jungle is not for the faint-hearted. I struggled with this book, because the main character really annoyed me, but then I was so intrigued by how the story was going to end that I couldn’t put it down. That isn’t to say I will be picking it up ever again. […]

Who Could That Be at This Hour? | 2 star review

Who Could That Be at This Hour? is the first book in Lemony Snicket’s new series, and it’s a book that has sat on my shelf for too long and was added to my 2018 must-read challenge. So I have succeeded for another month, but I have to say I was a little disappointed with this book, and although I hate to say it I think I have outgrown Snicket’s writing. For me, I think the shining star in Snicket’s writing […]

Paper Towns | 2 star review

  I was a fan of The Fault in Our Stars, and I really enjoyed reading it. However when I read Looking for Alaska I had some serious problems with the stories and I struggled with the characters. It would seem that John Green wasn’t for me, and unfortunately after reading Paper Tows that has been proven correct. This was the first book in my books I need to read in 2018 challenge, and it’s not off to a great […]

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared | 2 star review

The Hundred-Year-Old Man was a book that I started reading a long time ago and remembered enjoying. Unfortunately, I put it down and only picked it back up recently, I’m not sure it was the best idea. This book had me scratching my head all the way through, and by the end, I was struggling not to walk away. I think the worst thing about The Hundred-Year-Old Man was the humour, I distinctly remember it being a lot funnier the […]

The Awakening & The Reckoning | 2 star review

This review is the second in a series go check out my review of The Summoning here – this review may have spoilers for the first in the series! I thought I would combine these two reviews seeing as I think The Awakening and The Reckoning were really similar in my thoughts. Plus I really don’t want to spend any more time on these books. I’m so glad that I read these back to back because I think if I […]
