Book Review: Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier

Book Review: Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier

Let me start by saying that if you are at all interested in this series, in the concept of genetic time travel with a side of lovely feels and the hottie that is Gideon, please, for the love of god, binge read the series. This series should have been one book, not three. The plot in each of the three books is just too thin for each individual book to be brilliant. But together, the story they form is definitely enjoyable. I had quite a bit of trouble remembering what happened in Ruby Red and Sapphire Blue, to be honest, as I read those back […]

Book Review: A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

Book Review: A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

A Long, Long Sleep, I don’t know how to feel about you. I feel like we maybe got off on the wrong foot, because I was expecting to be blown away by your awesomeness. With the promise of a sci-fi fairytale retelling, my mind screamed, “CINDER! MORE OF THAT OMG YES PLEASE!” But you’re not like that at all. You’re much more subtle and laid back. Rose, our Sleeping Beauty, wasn’t the easiest character to connect to. We didn’t get off to a good start. She was rather bland and sheltered, and I just wished that she would get up and be awesome and kick […]

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

If you’ve been around the reading community for the past 3-4 months, you’ll have heard about Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It was inescapable. The hype was everywhere. Everyone was buying it. Everyone was reading it. Everyone was rating it 4-5 stars. Despite me having pre-ordered it, thanks to the wonderful (read: awful) service of the Book Depository, it took a month and a half before this book was finally in my hands. But off we went on this reading adventure. As a bookworm, and a fangirl, it wasn’t hard at all to find a connection to Cath. I could see a lot of myself in […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2013

Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2013

November 2013: the month of the snuggly comeback! Bonjour people! I know it’s weird to have a monthly wrap-up since I only came back on November 25th, but you know what, I still have a book haul to show you, and some milestones that can be talked about. So here we go! In November I read 7 books, which is kind of sad. But The Bone Season was massive, and so is S., which I’m working my way through now, and the move to WordPress did take up a lot of time as well. So I’m still relatively proud of myself. The blog itself has […]
