This is a slightly different review format for me, but this is a book that needs to be spoken about in different terms. I need to tell you why we have to listen to Reni Addo-Lodge, why we need to take her seriously, and why Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race […]
Review: House of Earth and Blood
This main character is called Bryce Quinlan, and she’s not an idiot like Feyre or a boring pile of trash like Celeana. She’s a party girl, someone that spends her life taking copious amounts of drugs, drinking booze and sleeping with whoever catches her eye first. She’s unlikeable, annoying and childish to the extreme, but that’s what I like about her. For once, Maas has managed to make an unlikeable main character on purpose.
Hey! I have barely posted anything on this blog so far in 2020, which is mostly down to a few things. I’m incredibly busy with just trying to make it through university right now We are in a very weird space as a world, and my energy and thought isn’t allowing me time to sit […]
This will be the first Valentine’s Day in three years that I’m spending sad, alone and single, so although I might not be the world’s expert in singlehood, my time after my relationship ended has given me enough insight into all you need for your perfect night in. Whilst your friends in relationships neck each […]
Alice by Christina Henry Date read: 21st October 2019 – 26th October 2019 Page count: 325 Genre: Horror Format: Paperback Rating: 5/5 You can’t go wrong with a little dark retelling – especially not when it’s a new version of Alice in Wonderland. It lends itself to darkness, although the Disney version is incredibly brightly […]
My Reading Goals for 2020
I managed to read 151 books in 2019 – as many as I managed the year before, which is a strange coincidence (and has nothing to do with the compulsion I felt to make the number the same two years running…). I also managed 201 books back in the days of 2017, which was mostly […]
In late August 2019, I decided to go ahead and do what I’ve been wanting to do for many, many years. Until this time, I was either too young, too dependent on my family, or too flaky to really stick to my guns about what I wanted for myself and for my diet. But I’m […]
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid Date Read: 9th September 2019 – 9th September 2019 Page Count: 391 Genre: Historical Fiction, LGBT+ Romance, Adult Fiction Format: Ebook Rating: 5/5 This book is one of the ones that I bought only because it was on sale on Amazon, but I’d also heard […]
Today, I bring to you my reintroduction. A quick run down of who I am, what I stand for, and why I’ve chosen to come back to this blog. I had a dry reading spell for the first half of 2019, but it’s picked up again since I came back from university for the summer. […]
Where I was expecting an interesting historical fiction novel about late 1800’s France in the time of the artistic revolution… Well, this isn’t what I would consider interesting. Unfortunately, what starts out as an engaging narrative, voiced by a real-life portrait artist (who I had never heard of before requesting this novel), ends up in odd, semi-erotic accounts of a man’s creepy love-at-first-sight obsession with a beautiful young woman, who is somehow in love with him within seconds, too.
