    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest The relationship between author and reader is one of constant courting, and sequels are especially hard. You've won my trust once, with a stellar book, but that's no guarantee that I'm going to enjoy the sequel. Second Boo...

    Power is so much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to. I'm not sure if I should be happy or angry? This book was, undoubtedly, my most anticipated book of the year. But I must confess, it did not quite live up to my expectations. That's not to say it is not a good book, it...

    Update Jan 8, 2019: It's here! Power is so much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to. So I'm officially ADDICTED. I can't say for sure what makes a good fantasy book for other people but, for me, these books are like crack. I'm like Fever series-level addicted right now an...

    Looks like you?ve got some real competition, Sarah J. Maas. If you want to stay in the lead, I would up my game if I were you. Holly Black sure has. The stakes are higher. The game deadlier. The enemies hungrier. Jude fiercer. She was once deeply betrayed, but instead of destro...

    It?s a great feeling to fall in utter love with the first book in a new series, and then anticipate the sequel, and then be offered a chance to read said sequel early, and then to read this book in 24 hours and savour every bit of it. Very few series that I?ve read in my life have ...

    Happy Pub Day!!! Ok so here's the deal-I wasn't crazy about The Cruel Prince. There, I said it. The reason I'm starting this review with a seemingly negative attitude is two-fold: 1) It shows the sheer amount of growth that Black provides between the first two books in this series a...

    "I want to tell you so many lies." A billion spiteful stars. Everything hurts, and no, I'm not okay. Holly is a delightfully cruel author and I love and hate her for it. It's very confusing. I'm not sure I can write this review as a 'sane' person but I'll try. Disclosure: spo...
