‘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: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34510711-infinity-son 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 […]

April wrap-up

‘Vicious’ V.E. Schwab ★★★★ I’m not sure how I feel about this book just yet – the beginning was too dull for me. It took three months to finish it, but when I finally decided to read it, I did it in one day. I definitely did not like the beginning, but the rest was so capturing and intriguing. I couldn’t stop thinking about what […]

But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her […]

March wrap-up

‘Anne of the Green Gables’ L.M. Montgomery ★★★★★ I have so much fondness for this book since it was the book that got me into reading when I was little. I remember having to read the entire series in one weekend because I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen. Going back to this book, it’s still as amazing as it was when […]

But Lira makes a mistake and now she has to pay for it – she must deliver the heart of the infamous siren killer or she will remain a human (a creature she hates) forever. Elian is a prince, but […]

February wrap-up

Hello, beautiful people! February is already over (how the time passes by), so it’s time for another wrap-up. This month was an amazing reading month for me, because all of my exams were over, and because at the beginning of the new university semester there isn’t much to do. I managed to read eleven books, and I started another four, which is a really good […]
