Book Review | Neverworld Wake

Something weird happened. For once, they hype actually enticed me to read a book instead of making me want to read it less (or at least put it off until the hype died down). And despite the fact I already own two unread Marisha Pessl books, I decided to pick up Neverworld Wake because everyone has been […]

Book Review | The Belles

I feel like Dhonielle Clayton’s debut novel, The Belles, has been popping up on my book radar for months. I see it everywhere, and the cover is definitely eye-catching. So, even though it isn’t the type of book I typically go for, I decided to give it a shot. I mean, look at that cover! (All […]

Book Review | Caraval

I’ve been in the mood for a light, fun read recently, and since I’d heard so many wonderful things about Stephanie Garber’s debut novel, Caraval, I decided to finally give it a try. And it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. And not in the best way. (Fair warning: this is my longest book review ever. […]
