One is a sweet book. At first I worried that it was going to be a bit light on content. I attribute this to projecting my own incapability of writing in verse. Obviously the rest of the world does not have this issue, case in point: Sarah Crossan. This book was pretty cute. I may […]
Drifter Volume one is a stunning beginning to a very promising series. I was left breathless by the end, as in I was actually holding my breath. The first issue of the collection left me underwhelmed. There were a lot of characters and little in the way of explanation. But at the commencement of issue […]
Where the Stars Still Shine was an enjoyable contemporary YA book. It was well written and interesting. The lack of gushing praise is my fault, I think I am finding some YA books difficult to get through! Maybe I’m burnt out on YA? It just hasn’t been my jam recently. If you enjoyed this book, […]
So after I finished the previous book in the Ladybirds series (Sun Kissed), I went straight into Star Struck. I feel there isn’t much I can say about Starstruck without spoiling it.

I don’t even like beaches. I was giggling to myself like a teenager, I could hardly contain the girlish enjoyment I got from […]
I didn’t love ACOTAR. I didn’t hate it, but it earned 3.5 Biscuits. I was excited for ACOMAF in that guilty pleasure way. I thought we would get a dark romp through the Night Court where Feyre is subjected to Rhysand’s every whim. I did not expect strong characters, strong high-fantasy plot points, or a […]
After Alice was enjoyable, but didn’t quite manage to reach what could have been a fresh, fun version of what was going on ‘After Alice’ (…went down the Rabbit Hole). Ada is in desperate need of an escape. She isn’t treated very well and seen as rational, quiet girl, she struggles with immobility due to […]
I am sorry to say that I didn’t truly enjoy any of April’s bookish offerings. All three I reviewed were a little bit ‘meh’… At least I had some variety, I suppose. On the plus side, May holds a lot of good pickings in store!
