Book Review: The Notebook

I loved the film. Loved it. I’m not usually a big fan of romances (film or books), especially stories that revolve solely around romance, but The Notebook had me in tears, because cute old people in love is my weak spot. Having said that, when I finally got to reading the book behind that film,…

Book Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I recently read Caraval, one of the most hyped YA Fantasies of 2018. I have mixed thoughts, but ultimately did enjoy it. First off: Garber does beautiful prose. The most gorgeous I’ve ever read. Contains spoilers, duh.

Book Review: Lord Loss by Darren Shan

I reread the first book in the Demonata series, LORD LOSS, by Darren Shan, and basically re-lived my book-loving teenagehood. This review does not contain spoilers.

Book Review: This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

It’s not often I read non-fiction as reading and writing fiction keeps my head above water and escape from the world, but when I heard about diaries written by fellow junior doctors in the wake of the junior doctors’ strikes of 2016, plus with me currently being on a gap year away from medicine, I…

Top 5 Books on my To-Read List

My reading list grows by the day, mainly because of my slow reading speed, but here are my top 5 for this year. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo I’ll admit: this is a book I only heard of because a good friend of mine, Stef, loved it. The cover is eye-catching, although the title…

Book Review: Finvarra’s Circus by Monica Sanz (DistantDreamer)

I recently finished reading “Finvarra’s Circus” by Monica Sanz (AKA DistantDreamer), and, my, what a beautiful, haunting read. This is the second of Monica’s books I’ve read so far, with the first being “A Witchling’s Rites” (first draft and continuing on Wattpad) and I loved it from start to finish. It follows the tale of…

The Paper Magician trilogy by Charlie N. Holmberg

I read “The Paper Magician”, the trilogy, about a month and a half back. I’m not usually a steampunk or Victorian fiction fan, but I do love fantasy and magic and I bought the eBook when the first in the series was free. My memories of the books’ events are a bit hazy now we’re…
