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 »

Rereading Harry Potter: ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’

Rereading Harry Potter: ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’

Warning: Spoilers for the ‘Harry Potter’ series. So the other day I did a post about how I was going to reread the Harry Potter series for the first time in years. In that post I promised updates after reading each book, so here is the first of many!

Mini Reviews: ‘The Winter King’ and ‘Enemy of God’

Bernard Cornwell is an author whose books I’ve been meaning to check out for a long time but hadn’t ever found the time to (even though I’ve had a copy of The Last Kingdom for ages!). However, when I found out he’d written a series of books based on Arthurian legend (a topic I love so much I wrote my dissertation on… Read more »

Mini Reviews: ‘A Darker Shade of Magic’ and ‘A Court of Wings and Ruin’

Mini Reviews: ‘A Darker Shade of Magic’ and ‘A Court of Wings and Ruin’

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab “Sure I do,” countered Lila cheerfully. “There’s Dull London, Kell London, Creepy London, and Dead London,” she recited, ticking them off on her fingers. “See? I’m a fast learner.” Kell is one of only two people with the ability to travel between parallel universes and the three different Londons: the dull, magicless Grey… Read more »
