Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

I saw this over at PaperFury’s blog (make sure you check it out!), and I thought it would be a fun thing to do – especially since I have not been doing my monthly wrap-ups this year. And what a year it has been! Let’s be honest – this year is a mess with everything happening in the world. To be honest, my reading has […]

‘A Curse So Dark and Lonely’ Brigid Kemmerer

review I had such great expectations reaching for ‘A Curse So Dark and Lonely’ mostly because of everyone’s great reviews, and I was really disappointed. It was a really twisted retelling of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ – definitely one involving more blood. The only thing resembling the Disney fairy-tale was the presence of a prince, a monster and a curse. There weren’t any talking clocks […]

My most anticipated reads of 2020

Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle #1) by Adam Silvera – January 14th 2020 This year I’ve read “They Both Die At The End” by Adam Silvera, which left me wanting more of his writing. And this one has magic in it, and two brothers getting caught up in a war, which sounds like a recipe for a heart-breaking disaster. synopsis: The Upside of Falling by […]

‘Daisy Jones & the Six’ Taylor Jenkins Reid

review That book is a real masterpiece. I don’t ever say that about a book, but I really think that about ‘Daisy Jones & the Six’. Everything about this book surprised me, including the form – it had a form of memoirs of everyone included in the band. At first, I thought the form of writing would annoy me, but I quickly got into it. […]

July wrap-up

‘Sky in the Deep’ Adrienne Young ★★★★ I actually gave it 4,5 stars, because it was really damn good. We don’t have many books about tribes in Young-Adult, which is a shame. I liked the characters, who were from different tribes, but realise that they are the same despite fighting for centuries – I think it sends a strong message, and additionally, it’s a really […]

June wrap-up

‘Romanov’ Nadine Brandes ★★★ I usually love retellings, but I have to admit that I didn’t like this one as much. It was very different from what I have already known about Anastasia. I liked the main character – she was everything a main female character should be, and I liked the tsar’s whole family. The love interest really annoyed me, and the plot was […]
