Allied (Ruined #3) by Amy Tintera

I thought this series as a whole was enjoyable and entertaining. I read a lot of firsts in a series and choose not to continue them, primarily because a) I want to try everything and b) if it’s not spectacular, it’s not worth my time investing in reading the rest. Ruined was spectacular. Avenged was […]

Shiny Broken Pieces Audiobook

See my review for Tiny Pretty Things here. It wasn’t great. It wasn’t terrible. It was kind of ‘meh.’ What I did enjoy was the depictions of actual dancing, of the ballet classes themselves, of the class getting ready to perform Swan Lake. I’ve read another ballet book where the dancing is described in terms […]

Goldenhand Take Two: Audiobook review

This is the second review I’m writing for Goldenhand. I was supplied with a review copy from Edelweiss in 2016, but only found out it was half the book when I checked Nix’s website for a quiet announcement. I purchased a physical copy because I have and love the rest of the series, but I […]

All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I received a copy of this book from Scholastic Australia in exchange for an honest review, but ended up listening to the audiobook, which I borrowed from my local library. All The Crooked Saints tells the story of a world where miracles are real, and so are the saints that compel them. It takes place […]

I Want to Join the Undead Girl Gang

Mila Flores is just about as outcast as a teenage girl can get: the opposite of popular, she’s Latina, fat, a Goth, a practicing witch, and her only friend lives above a funeral parlour. So when that BFF shows up dead in a suspected suicide pact with her high school’s resident Mean Girls, Mila takes […]

Quidditch Through the Ages Audiobook Read by Andrew Lincoln

Quidditch Through the Ages is isn’t exactly fiction in the sense of telling a story: it’s the fictional history of the very old, very traditional, and very popular magical sport on flying broomsticks conjured up for JK Rowling’s famous Harry Potter series. The sport itself consists of 7 wizards and witches per team, with your […]

Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman

Ice Wolves is the story of 12-year-old orphaned homeless boy Anders who, upon finding he can transform into an ice wolf, is separated from his twin sister Rayna, who transforms into the ice wolves’ bitter enemy the scorch dragon. I didn’t know what to expect going in to this. I’ve never read an Amie Kaufman […]

A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard

This is Sara Barnard’s second book, but my third Sara Barnard book, and I’ll explain why. A Quiet Kind of Thunder was released in 2017, a year I found very difficult due to personal reasons, in which I did not read very many books. When I saw it was available for review, I didn’t request […]
