I have never been so scared by a little girl–a fictional one, no less (except maybe those creepy girls in the Shining)! A few years ago, I went through a phase where psychopathy and sociopaths intrigued me deeply (don’t get me wrong I’m a good noodle I swear!), and I read many books on this topic. A twisted, heartless child psychopath just makes everything so much more exciting, and I couldn’t wait to see what devious acts she could come up with.

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!!!//”
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.
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.
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.
I got this book from way back but only recently picked it up from my huge TBR pile (do I smell a trend here. HALP.) For some reason I went into this book with great anticipation. Maybe it’s the premise: humanoid shapeshifter lurking among and attaching themselves to clueless human victims like parasites. How exciting! That cover is also pretty suitable and pretty! #coverlove Continue reading “Review: Shift by Em Bailey”
I started this book a long long time ago but for some reason never progressed beyond chapter 4. Last week, I just said to myself, “see how short, how puny this book is? Of course you can finish it. You can do it.” I read and liked Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar, so after I remembered Belzhar is inspired by that book, I got way more interested.
The premise of this book immediately drew me in. A boy with mutism with a fondness for writing in notebooks and hotel-loitering? A metaphysical girl with silver hair who claims to be immortal? Sign me up.
I was so blown away by this book. I’m not even exaggerating. So many emotions.
