Mini Reviews: ‘Scythe’ and ‘Red Queen’

Mini Reviews: ‘Scythe’ and ‘Red Queen’

As much as I enjoyed my Harry Potter reread, it’s been kind of nice getting back to reading ‘new-to-me’ books. Both of the books I’ve read since finishing Harry Potter have been on my TBR for a while, one for a few months, the other for literally years, but thankfully they both lived up to my expectations! Check out my reviews below for more information!… Read more »

Am I too generous with star ratings?

Am I too generous with star ratings?

Recently I was glancing back through my Goodreads ‘Read’ shelf, and I realised something: I rate a lot of books with 4 or more stars. As in, most of the books I read! This had me thinking, am I just insanely good at picking books I’ll like? Am I just lucky? Or am I a little too generous with my star ratings?… Read more »

Mini Reviews: ‘Flame in the Mist’ and ‘Graceling’

Mini Reviews: ‘Flame in the Mist’ and ‘Graceling’

Recently I read two YA books that I really enjoyed, both with strong female leads, vivid world-building, and if I may be shallow for a moment, absolutely gorgeous covers! It’s a shame I only own these books on Kindle, because I literally adore both of these covers, especially this edition of Flame in the Mist! But onto my thoughts about the books… Read more »

Mini Reviews: ‘The Cruel Prince’ and ‘One Dark Throne’

Mini Reviews: ‘The Cruel Prince’ and ‘One Dark Throne’

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black and One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake were both books I was super excited to read. There has been a huge buzz around The Cruel Prince in the blogosphere lately, whilst One Dark Throne is, of course, the follow-up to Three Dark Crowns, which I absolutely loved. Thankfully, I really enjoyed both of these books, although perhaps due to the immense hype and… Read more »

Mini Reviews: ‘The Doll House’ and ‘The Housekeeper’

Mini Reviews: ‘The Doll House’ and ‘The Housekeeper’

I really have been on a roll with the thrillers lately! I didn’t enjoy The Doll House by Phoebe Morgan or The Housekeeper by Suellen Dainty as much as I enjoyed The Girlfriend and The Couple Next Door, but they were still great reads. Find out more below! The Doll House by Phoebe Morgan ‘This time the recognition is faster, the image pops straight into my head. It is… Read more »

Mini Reviews: ‘Child of the Prophecy’ and ‘Heir to Sevenwaters’

Mini Reviews: ‘Child of the Prophecy’ and ‘Heir to Sevenwaters’

So I finally got round to reading the last book in Juliet Marillier’s incredible Sevenwaters Trilogy, and have now started on the follow-up books she wrote several years later. Since reading Daughter of the Forest last year, Juliet Marillier has quickly become one of my favorite authors, and I love her writing even more with each book I read (although Son of the Shadows is… Read more »

Mini Reviews: ‘Shadow and Bone’ and ‘Siege and Storm’

Mini Reviews: ‘Shadow and Bone’ and ‘Siege and Storm’

A while ago I read and absolutely adored Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows duology, and I’ve been meaning to read her earlier series, The Grisha Trilogy, ever since. I had heard from various people that this series isn’t as good as Six of Crows, but I decided to give it a go anyway and see what I thought. Plus I was pretty anxious to return to… Read more »
