The Fever series – Karen Marie Moning

Have I already talked about this on here? I don’t think so. Let me tell you a short story of me reading these books. I’ve been watching one of my favorite booktuber, GingerReadsLainey, talk about her recent reads last year. She was raving about them, so I decided to pick the first one up. It…

The Orenda by Joseph Boyden – Book Review

This story got more and more brutal as it went along, a crude yet seemingly accurate depiction of the life that was lived by first nations, especially the Huron-Wendat, with their own wars to wage against the Iroquois while Europeans settlers were arriving in their lands and trying to assimilate them. It wasn’t always easy…

Currently Reading, Unhaul and Non-fiction haul

I am currently alternating between listening to the audiobook and reading The Orenda by Joseph Boyden. The story is set around the 1600s in what is now Canada and told in 3 different point of views. One french Jesuit priest, one Huron war chief, and one yound captured Iroquois girl. It’s a very good portrait of…

Harry Potter & The Cursed Child – Review

Before I start with my review, I want to mention that I was never part of the people who considered this to be ” the 8th Harry Potter novel ”. I did understand from the beginning that this was a written version of a play and that it was not written by Jo Rowling, therefore I…

Recent Reads Wrap-Up!

There I go, not posting for a month again. I’m so unreliable for blogging. I hate myself for it ahah I had a weird reading month in June, because I didn’t finish any books before the 27th and that was a book that I’ve been reading for 3 months!  That’s because I continued with The Wise Man’s…

The Boy in the Striped Pajama – Book Review

If you start to read this book, you will go on a journey with a nine-year-old boy named Bruno. (Though this isn’t a book for nine0year-olds.) And sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence. Fences like this exists all over the world. We hope you never have to encounter one. I went…

The Wild Truth – Book Review

  The Wild Truth : The Untold Story of Sibling Survival by Carine McCandess is a non-fiction that kind of acts as a sequel to Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. I was mildly obsessed with Chris McCandless’s story after watching the amazing movie and reading the book a few years ago. I was really…

Me Before You – Movie adaptation review

I saw the movie adaptation of this great novel yesterday and it was everything. I didn’t disappointed me at all. First of all, every seat was taken. The room was packed. I love seeing movies like this with a crowd around me, because then we can laugh together, and tear up together, and it feels…

May Reading Wrap-up!

Review – milk and honey by Rupi Kaur

‘milk and honey’ is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. ‘milk and honey’ takes readers through a journey of the most…

Summer Days and Summer Nights Review

I was in such a perfect mood for a book like this, but it just didn’t deliver. I didn’t even bother to try to guess which couple is which on the cover. A good thing about it I guess is  that this collection of short stories has a very diverse set of characters (LGBT friendly), which…

The life-changing magic of tidying up

Otherwise known as the KonMarie Method. I have read it. Have I applied it? Let’s see. Goodreads page Alright. When I started this book, I had heard only good things, so I was hopeful. I *tend* to be on the hoarding side of things when it comes to clothes, beauty products, books (especially books) and…

My current bookshelves

I don’t have any new reviews to write since I’ve been watching Making a Murderer on Netflix for the past couple of days but while I did that, I also built a new bookshelf and rearranged my set up. I have one more bookshelf not showed on the picture because it’s on the other side…

2016 Bookish Goals

2016 is upon us and I wanted to set myself some goals this year. 2 years ago, I made a list containcing stuff I wanted to get to separated by categories (specific books I wanted to read, a minimum number of books per genre, specific authors I wanted to discover, etc) and although I spent a…

Book Review – The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Author Neil Gaiman Here is the extensive summary found on Goodreads: Sussex, England. A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most…

Review – Harry Potter, The Character’s Vault

So. Obviously this is a beautiful book that I’m more than glad to add to my (overflowing) Harry Potter shelf. My only problem with it is that I already knew about 70% of what was in there. Actually, I feel as though they regurgitated info from the big Page to Screen book (that is over…

Book Review – Locke and Key by Joe Hill

  I read the 6 Locke and Key volumes over the span of 2-3 months, because I bought them one at a time. This series is definitely amongst my favorites along with SAGA in the realm of graphic novels and Trade paperbacks. The story was complex and mysterious without being all over the place and…

Book Review – Y The Last Man by Brian K Vaughn

Before I start this review, I might want to mention that I binged read the 10 volumes in about 5 days. I do think that the experience or the appreciation of a series can vary whether you read it over a longer span of time, with other books in between, or all at once without…

Top 5 Wednesday – Books you wanted to read yesterday

I haven’t posted a review in 1 month. I’ve been reading big fat sequels so 1- my reading challenge isn’t going really well and 2- I can’t really review them without spoiling (the Oulander series, I’m on An Echo in the Bone right now), and 3-I’ve been lazy. I thought that participating in this Top…
