‘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 […]

‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Jenny Han

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 […]

January wrap-up

Just a short post, because January was a busy month for me, and so is the beginning of the February. I didn’t read a lot this month, but my definite favourite I discovered this month was ‘All for the Game’ series by Nora Sakavic. I absolutely fell in love with this series, and I have a feeling you are going to hear much more about […]

November wrap-up

This month was also a good reading month for me – I have to admit that bookstagram is really motivating me to read more (not to mention all the book recommendations). Both October and November are ‘Harry Potter’ months for me, so I’ve mostly reread the series. I’ve also started rereading ‘Grisha Trilogy’, even though I read it in July. Overall, I liked all the […]

October wrap-up

October was such a good reading month for me! Honestly! I have managed to read 10 books which, compared to September, is a lot. My favourite read of this month was ‘Everless’ (I don’t include ‘Harry Potter’ in that, because ‘Harry Potter’ is ‘Harry Potter’). Here is my October wrap-up! ‘Catwoman’ Sarah J. Maas ★★★★★ I was so excited to finally get my hands on […]

‘Descendants of War: Magic’s Demise’ Ruby Fitzgerald

Or so it was thought. Suddenly, people had started dying because of an illness called the Jinx. The Jinx started killing the population of Thurnadan on a massive scale. The […]

September wrap-up

It was a terrible reading month for me, really. I wasn’t home for the most time and I didn’t take any books with me. Then, I was on my holidays where I was too busy sightseeing, resting and bonding with my family. But I still wanted to share the books I have read this month with the world. I managed to find two interesting books […]

August wrap-up

August was not a good month for my reading since I’ve started working and it was all new to me. Honestly, I mostly came home, ate and went right to sleep. But I managed to read a few books I’ve liked. I’ve wanted to read ‘Grishaverse’ for a while now and, while I ordered it in July, it only arrived at the beginning of August. […]
