Book Review: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus caught my attention a while back, with its slick vector cover and stark black, white, and scarlet contrasted colouring. I didn’t pay it much attention and it remained in my collection of 300+ books on the TBR pile until I read the pretty but disappointing debut novel that was Caraval. Multiple Goodreads…

Book Review: Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

I hesitated a lot posting this review. SJM seems to be well-loved within my circle of writers and readers and I’ve heard endlessly about how great ToG is, so when I picked up a copy at last, I honestly couldn’t help but be taken aback. First thought: am I reading the same Throne of Glass as…

Film Review: Behind the Walls

tl;dr: a film that tries too hard to be unique and ends up being uninspired and uninteresting. DNF’d at 30 minutes. Contains spoilers (duh).

Book Review: Steelheart (Reckoners Book 1) by Brandon Sanderson

After falling in love with Brandon Sanderson’s work (okay, so I’m late on the train) with The Rithmatist, I was super keen to jump onto a series of his. Mistborn has been pretty elusive in the library thus far, so I started on Steelheart. And, well, yes, I enjoyed it. I liked The Rithmatist more,…

Book Review: Bec by Darren Shan

Bec is yet another new character in the Demonata series, a refreshing female significant character in the exceedingly male-dominated world so far, although the female numbers remain disappointingly low in Book 4 despite this. We’re set in Ancient Ireland, a world very different to the pseudo-medieval generically European I’m used to so I’m loving the…

Review: Your Name

Oh gosh, it’s been a while since I’ve been so in love with a film. Your Name is a wonderful film. Go watch it. If you like Studio Ghibli creations, this is for you. If you like a gripping fantasy romance animated story with a wonderful sense of humour, a mesmerising soundtrack, and gorgeous aesthetics, this…

Book Review: Demon Thief by Darren Shan

Demon Thief follows the story of Kernel Fleck, a character newly introduced in Book 2 of the Demonata series and follows the same ass-kicking blood-and-gore formula with plenty of action, adventure, and thrill as its predecessor. This review does not contain spoilers.

Currently Watching: Breaking Bad (Part 2)

End of Season 2. A.K.A. The season where everyone makes questionable decisions at best, downright dumb ones at worst. I’m not too sure where to stand with Jesse. My heart melted when he expresses delight at Walter’s remission diagnosis. Although he probably is one of the dumbest characters on the show, he does genuinely have a…

Film Review: Black Panther

I love this film. Oh my gosh. The hype was absolutely worth it and so great. Must watch. Must watch. I’m not sure if I like this more or Wonder Woman more. Contains spoilers. Duh.
