Review: Vengeful

Review: Vengeful

If you haven’t read V.E. Schwab’s Vicious yet, then you simply MUST. Not only is it an incredible work of fiction, but after a four and half year wait, it has a sequel, Vengeful. When I ‘reviewed’ Vicious on Goodreads a few years ago, all I could manage were two words “bloody brilliant”. That statement […]

Review: WaR: Wizards and Robots

Review: WaR: Wizards and Robots

Well, for the first third of WaR: Wizards and Robots I thought my brain might explode – wizards, robots, high school kids, three times in space – I was somewhat overwhelmed! But once I started to get my head around things I actually quite enjoyed the story – it certainly is action packed! I made […]

Review: Zenith

Review: Zenith

It’s hard to know what to say about Zenith because while, overall, I enjoyed the story well enough, I just wasn’t really a fan of its execution. The story is told through a variety of different characters, each of whom have their own chapters. Personally, I find that this style of story-telling can either work […]

Review: Waking Gods

Review: Waking Gods

Having been left on somewhat of a cliffhanger at the end of Sleeping Giants (see my review here), I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on the second Themis Files book, Waking Gods, ever since. Waking Gods follows a similar format to Sleeping Giants, a dossier of interviews and transcripts which tell the story. […]

Discussion: Carve The Mark

I’m not quite sure how this is going to go. I mean, I know how I feel, I just don’t know if I’m going to be able to articulate it. OK A bit about me first. I suffer from a chronic illness. For the past 11 years my illness has ruled my life. Among many […]

Review: Kindred, A Graphic Novel Adaptation

Review: Kindred, A Graphic Novel Adaptation

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler is one of those books that has always been on my radar, but I’ve just never got around to reading. So when I saw there was to be a graphic novel adaptation, I thought it the perfect time to familiarise myself with the story – and swoon over the artwork […]
