Our Dark Duet//Finally Here!!!//

I remember loving This Savage Song (that title!) and basically all Victoria Schwab has to offer, and I’ve been waiting for the second half of the duology for a long time. I was ecstatic that Our Dark Duet (and this title!) was finally here, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Continue reading “Our Dark Duet//Finally Here!!!//”


Velveteen by Daniel Marks // Raging Ghost Girl and Crumbling Underworld Society

Oh, well well. One of those book I started forever ago but never dug into. I wonder why I didn’t finish this book the first time round, because it’s quite interesting. The premise of ghosts hustling in purgatory sounded quite a delight.

The Beginning Woods by Malcolm McNeill // Vanishing People and Colliding Worlds

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book immediately reeled me in with its magical atmosphere and fairytale plot. I love the premise of worlds interlacing and colliding with each other, causing seemingly inexplicable Vanishings.

The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine//Slightly Interesting Magic Battles

I’ve never read any books by Sarah Fine, though I’m intrigued by the premise of The Impostor Queen to give it a try (adventurous me). While it’s a decent enough YA fantasy read, I feel like it’s just that: decent. Not extraordinary but also not cringe-worthily bad. It has all the right elements but just wasn’t enough to blow my mind.

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

I was so blown away by this book. I’m not even exaggerating. So many emotions.

Mini Review: Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

In my efforts to finally get into graphic novels, I discovered this gloriously creepy one by Emily Carroll. I’ve always been drawn to velvety dark fairytale retellings and sinister atmosphere, and Through the Woods is right up my alley.

Review: Vicious by V.E. Schwab

I’m not even trying to hide my ginormous love for V.E. Schwab; I’ll confess I’ve binge-read all her books. Vicious drew me in at villains and anti-heroes. Friends-turned-foes? Even better.

Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

After I read ADSOM, I was so relieved there’s still A Gathering of Shadows, or else I would’ve internally screamed with furious despair *FANGIRLS*. To my delight, A Gathering of Shadows gives me so much more of the four Londons universe. Upping the suspense with stakes upon stakes, the book promises action, magic, and much angst. Also stabby, bloody magic duels (I’m such a sucker for magic duels).

Review: Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

From its description to its whimsical, plummy name to its gorgeous cover, Wink Poppy Midnight screams creepy magical. Tucholke crafts an ethereal story of ghost, fairytales, and manipulative girls. Just my cuppa tea.
