A study of Ash and Smoke

So I recently stamped my reading passport in the world of Aelland. The country under the mantle admist the war of seven kingdoms. And what a journey it has been. If High Fantasy is your thing, you will love this novel.


“The History Books say I died. They don’t know the half of it.” These words can be found on the inside cover of the book sleeve. Powerful words. Powerful story. To say that this book changed me is an understatement. As a little girl, I adored the Disney film, Anastasia. Till this day I find myself humming the soundtrack. The story of the orphan girl surviving the revolution that killed her family touched me to my deepest core

Travelling through Elfhame

Upon embarking on this journey, I realised I haven't actually read any books on faeries since finishing school. Elfhame is a wonderful place, but the people who live there are awful. A few things to know. Faeries can't lie, but they can bend the truth. Rowan berries and Salt should be kept on your person … Continue reading Travelling through Elfhame

Join in the Magic of Caraval

Upon my return from the journey to Caraval I found myself missing the excitement of the game. In all honesty I think anyone who reads this will agree that this will be an epic place if it were truly real. I honestly would like to thank the Author for this amazing journey. And I'm begging you, PLEASE TAKE ME BACK!

The Wren Hunt

Watson has managed to capture my imagination with this magnificent novel, creating a fantasy world set in modern day Ireland

The Hazel Wood

Picked up this extremely hyped up book recently and wow, what an experience. “Life was a big thing to live without a map.”  Melissa Albert, The Hazel Wood Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother are continuously on the run, because bad luck always catch up eventually. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book … Continue reading The Hazel Wood

The Sea Witch

I absolutely loved this book! The amazing spin on a well known tale (and also my favorite Disney movie btw.) had me reading through the night. The story had me laughing, crying, throwing the book at the wall…several times. I was completely engrossed. The story of a three friends and a tragic end had me … Continue reading The Sea Witch

Magonia series

I had very high expectation of this book. I loved the cover and the back cover summary was so appealing. But honestly I was a little disappointed. Headley has an interesting writing style. And if you like knowing what your characters think all the time, this book is for you. For me the teen anguish … Continue reading Magonia series

Shatter Me Series Review

I started this series in an attempt to recover from a book hangover. Boy, I underestimated my ability to get involved with fictional characters. My husband made me do a book detox after the fourth book resulted in a three day sulk. I bought him a PlayStation after that so we're all good... So to … Continue reading Shatter Me Series Review

Welcome to the Grishaverse

Let me start off by saying there is definitely an order to these books. I have not read them in the correct order which did impact my experience. There are definitely spoilers if you read them out of order. I will however be reviewing them in order. The Shadow and Bone Trilogy The trilogy follows … Continue reading Welcome to the Grishaverse
