ARC Book Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Book Reviews | July 28, 2016

I did it. I killed the beast – this 600+ page monster of a novel. It took me three weeks to get through it not only because Pokémon Go was released in the same time. And it pains me to say it, but I do feel like it was a waste of those three weeks. When I saw […]

ARC Book Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

Book Reviews | January 31, 2016

Oh man, oh man, oh man. File under: most exciting giveaway winnings ever, because I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel that I got to read this masterpiece early. Yeah, it probably will surprise basically no one to hear that I fell in love with yet another book by V.E. Schwab. A Gathering of Shadows […]

Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Book Reviews | January 29, 2016

As big a fan as I am of Victoria Schwab, it’s taken me ages to get around to reading A Darker Shade of Magic for the simple fact that the hype surrounding this book was freaking insane. And yeah, I don’t cope that well with hype. But I should know by now that when V Schwab’s books get […]

Book Review: A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

Book Reviews | October 5, 2014

It took me a month of scheduled reading to manage fitting A Clash of Kings in with the rest of my towering stacks of books to be read, but I did it. Now, this won’t be my most coherent review ever, because how on earth do you review a book of over 700 pages, but more just my […]

Book Review: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Book Reviews | May 26, 2014

I think like everyone else, I was seriously daunted by the size of A Game Of Thrones, in spite of how much I wanted to read it. So yeah, for some I “did it in the wrong order” – I watched the TV series before I read the book. But you know what? I don’t care. I love […]

Book Review: The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Review: The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Reviews | August 13, 2012

Wow. I can’t really believe I finished reading it. Granted, some of the appendices I skipped. But I mean, why would I read about the family trees, calendars, pronunciations? Heh, Tolkien was a bit optimistic about his readers there, but they’re not called appendices for nothing. Once again, the first half, Book 5, was amazing. It slowed down […]

Book Review: The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Reviews | August 10, 2012

Quite a bit better than The Fellowship of the Ring. I just enjoyed it a lot more, despite the fact that it took me like 3 times longer to read. But hey, whatever, it’s vacation, there’s no rush. While I didn’t remember the movie version of The Two Towers being better than the movie version of the Fellowship, […]

Book Review: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

Book Reviews | July 28, 2012

Oh hello there. Do not judge me for never having read this before. I feel guilty enough as it is. But here I am, reading the most classic fantasy series ever. I tried multiple times before to get into it but each time lost interest. Not this time. I found it surprisingly easy to read, while I had […]
