Heart of Mist Book Review | Blogmas #6

Heart of Mist was a book that I borrowed from Kindle Unlimited and I actually really loved it. It reminded me a lot of A Throne of Glass, especially the way the kingdom worked and the king maintains power, there are obvious differences but it made me think of it all the way through. I think it was definitely a better read than some of the others that I have borrowed. I think the magic system that surrounds this book […]

Ticker | 3 star review

Ticker is a book that I found through Kindle Unlimited and I have to say it was completely different from anything I would have picked up normally, but the cover got me. I think the idea of someone having a clockwork heart was really unique and something I hadn’t heard of before. I have to say the story was well written if not a little heavy on the description, it was sometimes difficult to keep a track of things because […]

Renegades | 4 star review

I picked up Renegades because I loved The Lunar Chronicles and I was really excited to try something new, and it didn’t disappoint the characters and world were rich and well developed. I loved the politics that were wound all the way through the story, it’s always my favourite when there’s politics that are seamlessly integrated into the story and shape the characters and their lives. Plus this had a government that may not be perfect but it wasn’t based […]

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 […]

Easy Prey | 4 star review

I made the mistake of reading the reviews on Goodreads before jumping into Easy Prey. I will say that the description of psychological thriller was pushing it, and I would say that it raised my expectations of this book, and the thriller aspect just wasn’t what I thought it was going to be! However Easy Prey still manages a 4-star rating because of how much I enjoyed the story and how good the ending was. I definitely think there was […]

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 […]

Kingdom of Ash | Can’t Wait Wednesday #11

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun. And I’m on a roll with playing by the rules and have a book that isn’t actually out yet for this week’s post – Kingdom of Ash. If you have been around my […]

Mirage | 4 star review

Mirage was a book I was really excited to read and it comes out later on this month, so make sure you pick it up here because this book blew me away! It was completely different to what I expected but in an outstanding kinda way! I was really worried that this was going to be a trope-filled YA, which seems to be a recurring issue with the books I have read in the past and I’m probably over cautious […]

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 […]

The Hate U Give | Can’t Wait Wednesday #8

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun. BUT I’m going to break the rules a little, it’s rare for me to be looking forward to book releases, PURELY because I’m so busy with everything else going on I don’t […]
