Review: Thanks for the Trouble by Tommy Wallach

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.

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

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

Review: The Secret of a Heart Note by Stacey Lee

I received a copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve always seen perfumers as extraordinary creatures who can see colors and hear music in scents. The Secret of a Heart Note has a fascinating premise of perfumers who have a super sense of smell and can create love elixirs to bring lovers together.

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: The Suffering by Rin Chupeco

I love it when you have so many sequels to wait for *insert fangirl feels*, one of them just come out without you noticing it. Then “wait what? The sequel is OUT?” and it’s one of the best feelings ever. This happened with The Suffering, sequel to The Girl from the Well. I was charmingly frightened by The Girl from the Well, and I’m delighted to resume my terror. Continue reading “Review: The Suffering by Rin Chupeco”

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.

Review: Throw Away Girls by Jennifer Vaughn

I received a review copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

This mystery/thriller promises serial killers, bloodhound journalists, and tragic promiscuous women. How exciting, how scandalous! The book delivers to a point, but it doesn’t really live up to my expectations.
