REVIEW | The Simple Wild – K.A. Tucker

“And just like that, I sense a circle closing. Back to the beginning, and near to the end.” I wasn't sure what to expect, as I don't read a lot of this genre, but I loved this book! It was a slower-paced novel for the most part - I'm all for slow-burn romance, but there … Continue reading REVIEW | The Simple Wild – K.A. Tucker

REVIEW | The Secret Garden – Frances Hodgson Burnett

“Where you tend a rose my lad, a thistle cannot grow.” Why did I always avoid this book and film growing up!? This was such a beautiful and heart-warming story. We follow two children who have been neglected and raised through privilege - always getting their way despite being horrible and bratty, and not doing … Continue reading REVIEW | The Secret Garden – Frances Hodgson Burnett

REVIEW | They Both Die At The End – Adam Silvera

“I wasted all those yesterdays and am completely out of tomorrows.” The concept of this book is fantastic, if unnerving. After midnight, Death-Cast phone people who they have predicted will die today to let them know, so they can say their goodbyes and get anything they wanted to do done - and they're never wrong. … Continue reading REVIEW | They Both Die At The End – Adam Silvera

REVIEW | Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire

Percy wouldn't notice a joke if it danced naked in front of him wearing one of Dobby's hats. Ooh, I didn't like this one as much... I'm torn between a three and a four-star, but I'll go with the higher based on the ending. I found so many characters infuriating - plus I did not … Continue reading REVIEW | Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire

REVIEW | Sadie – Courtney Summers

"People don't change. They just get better at hiding who they really are." I listened to this book, and oh my gosh - it is definitely the way to do it! Its got a full cast, and half the story is set up as a podcast into the disappearance of Sadie - so audio is … Continue reading REVIEW | Sadie – Courtney Summers

REVIEW | Serpent & Dove – Shelby Mahurin

“Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.” I loved this book. Of course I loved it. It's a great enemies to lovers story that unfolds slowly over the book, after our two protagonists, a witch and a witch hunter, are thrust together in a marriage of convenience. I loved Lou and Reid's characters, but … Continue reading REVIEW | Serpent & Dove – Shelby Mahurin

REVIEW | Talon – Julie Kagawa

I listened to this for free on Audible Stories - and I'm kinda glad it was free, even if it did get me through some slow workdays. It felt like a stereotype of YA novels. A typical girl meets boy and then girl meets boy oh so different. Girl can't choose between creepy or conflicted … Continue reading REVIEW | Talon – Julie Kagawa

REVIEW | Throne of Glass – Sarah J Mass

“We all bear scars,… Mine just happen to be more visible than most.” Depending on how much you know of the series, this could be slightly spoilery for the series, as I mention how I feel about characters with later parts of the series in mind. So I'm reading this for the second time. I … Continue reading REVIEW | Throne of Glass – Sarah J Mass

REVIEW | The Spirit of Fire – Susanne Dunlap

Following on from Listen to the Wind, we resume our story in 13th Century France as our protagonists flee towards their goal of Montsegur before the French forces take the stronghold from the Cathars. I found the first half of the book a little slow to be honest, which surprised me with it being the … Continue reading REVIEW | The Spirit of Fire – Susanne Dunlap
