Review: Tower of Dawn

Review: Tower of Dawn

In case you aren’t aware, Tower of Dawn is the Chaol novella that Maas was working out that turned into a full-length novel – 660 pages! The timing of this book coincides with the happenings of Empire of Storms, so although they are separate books they are really following the one timeline. Make sense? I […]

Review: The Edge Of Everything

Review: The Edge Of Everything

I drafted a summary but honestly the synopsis above probably covers it best so go read that! Done? Ok, so Zoe, her Mum and her 8 year old brother Jonah are struggling to cope with Zoe’s father’s sudden death. It’s them against the world! I actually really liked the relationship¬†between Zoe and Jonah. We get […]

Review: Stealing Snow

Review: Stealing Snow

I actually don’t know what to say. I don’t like being negative and yet I fear this post will be just that. I really wanted to enjoy this Stealing Snow so much but ultimately I didn’t. I rarely DNF books, in fact I can’t remember the last time I did, but I seriously considered it […]

Review: The Winner’s Crime

Review: The Winner’s Crime

Do you ever shout at the tv? You’re watching a film or a tv series and shouting almost pantomime-style “he’s behind you” or “no, don’t go in there”, “just tell him”, “kiss him you idiot”? (Hopefully that’s not just a Rhoda-thing.) Well I found myself doing that a lot with this book. A LOT! Obviously […]

Review: The Winner’s Curse

Review: The Winner’s Curse

Prior to reading this book I wasn’t familiar with the concept of the “winner’s curse”. Rutkoski describes in her Author’s Note what the “winner’s curse” actually is, so I think that’s a pretty good place to start. Quite simply, it describes how the winner of an auction has also lost, because he or she has […]

Book Bites: Sarah J. Maas

Book Bites: Sarah J. Maas

I had intended to write a full review of ACOTAR, but to be honest there are plenty of reviews online. So I thought I’d briefly share my thoughts. I was a bit worried before I started ACOTAR as the ARC reviews I’d seen had been somewhat mixed. I ended up putting off reading this as […]

Review: The Sleeper and the Spindle

Review: The Sleeper and the Spindle

          Shocking admission – this is the first of Neil Gaiman’s work I’ve ever read. Yeup, ever. I have a lot of Gaiman’s novels on my TBR list but I’ve just not got to them yet. After reading this though, I’m going to make more of an effort. This is a […]
