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 […]

Three Act Tragedy | 3 star review

If you didn’t know I have pledged to read 25 of the Hercule Poirot by the end of the year Three Act Tragedy is number 11, so I know I won’t get to all of them, but I’m going to make a good number. I love the different stories and characters that take part in the stories, and as always I never see the ending coming! Three Act Tragedy definitely didn’t disappoint in that concern either. I always worry about […]

The Winter Soldier | 3.5 star review

The Winter Soldier for me was an extremely detailed look at the way that medicine evolved throughout the war. I also think it offered an insight into a time frame and another subject matter that I don’t think is looked at very often. Saying that this was not a story that grabbed me. I wasn’t pulled into the character’s journeys and some of the information that was put into the story felt out of place and almost unnecessary to the […]

The Book Knights | 3 star review

The Book Knights really intrigued me both with the description and the cover. I loved the idea of having a gender-swapped Arthurian tale, especially with it being set in a dystopian world where reading is banned. I enjoy reading about what would happen if the world stopped reading one day, and the results are usually not pleasant. So when I read about the world in which this story is set, I had high expectations for the book and characters. I […]

Alice in Zombieland | 3 star review

I have had this book on my shelf forever, and this was a reread. I kinda knew what Alice in Zombieland was about but it didn’t stop the disappointment that this wasn’t a badass Alice in Wonderland retelling. So if that is what you’re looking to get out of this book, you should probably look elsewhere. This book is also trope filled and the angst can become somewhat unbearable especially with the romance elements of the story. Saying that I […]

Truthwitch | 3 star review

I don’t know what I was expecting when I began reading Truthwitch, I had heard amazing things about the friendships that take place in this book but other than that I was pretty much in the dark. Which is never a bad thing, I love being surprised by a book, especially if I don’t have any expectations about it going in. I feel like I enjoyed the general plot line and story of Truthwitch and when trying to collect my […]

The Summoning | 3 star review

The Summoning is the first book in a series that has been sat on my shelves for a very long time. I am currently trying to keep my book buying to a minimum and reading all the books that I have on my shelves at the moment. I have a load of books by Kelly Armstrong and some of them I really like and then others I’m not too keen on. If you couldn’t tell I wasn’t particularly keen on The […]

Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power | 3 star review

This was another free arc from YALC which you can read all about here! I believe that Lumberjanes is based on a serial comic of the same name. I could be completely wrong but that’s my understanding of the whole situation. I picked it up because of a) it was free and b) because I really liked the illustrations on the front. For once the characters weren’t all the same size! This book was a little young for me if […]

Odd & True | 3 star review

Odd & True was a free arc that I received at YALC 2017 which you can read all about here. I don’t know what I was expecting when I opened the book, but I have to say the first couple of chapters didn’t blow me away! In fact, I wasn’t sure that I wasn’t going to finish it, but I’m kinda glad I did, to be honest. I think that Odd & True has a really nice slow reveal, and […]

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 […]
