The New Dark by Lorraine Thomson | What was the turning point of this book?

I keep saying it over and over, but I really enjoy different dystopian settings that different authors come up with. So I am always on the lookout for new apocalyptic stand alones or series, and more often than not, they are quite disappointing.

In The New Dark we didn’t learn what happened to the world and why the civilization as we know was gone. There were snippets of what life was like for the characters and we saw the existence of mutants, but we weren’t given a lot of information just yet regarding WHY everything had changed so drastically.

Tarnished City by Vic James |A brilliant continuation to the Dark Gifts series!

Earlier this year I got a chance to read the ARC of «Gilded Cage» the first book in Dark Gifts series by Vic James and was blown away by the political plays, rebellion, magic and a new concept of slavery.

Of course when the second book was published, I had to get my hands on it immediately. And it didn’t disappoint! Continue reading “Tarnished City by Vic James |A brilliant continuation to the Dark Gifts series!”

December TBR 2017 | Books I want to read before the end of the year!

There is only one month left before the end of this year and there are still a huge amount of books I would like to read before the 31st of December. I think it will always be like this , no matter how many books I manage to read each year.

My aim for this December is to prioritize ARCs and all pending reviews! So this is exactly what I will be reading (maybe some Christmasy novels as well). Continue reading “December TBR 2017 | Books I want to read before the end of the year!”

October and November Wrap Up 2017 | Only one month left!

It’s been very long since I sat down and wrote a post for my blog! Too long! But as you all know, life has a tendency to get in the way and ruin your plans. Fear not! No matter how busy December is going to be, I am ready to watch tons of Christmas Movies and type type type on my keyboard, while wrapped up in a cozy robe with a steaming cup of tea by my side.

Alright, alright.. let’s actually start talking about books! Continue reading “October and November Wrap Up 2017 | Only one month left!”

The End We Start From by Megan Hunter | A short story or an outline of a novel-to-be?

Let me begin by saying that reading this book was fun, interesting and in all a very weird experience. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about the short story by Megan Hunter and how an hour of your life can change everything!

I received the ARC of «The End We Start From» by Megan Hunter from Netgalley and Grove Press for an honest review. Aaand honestly… I am very confused! Continue reading “The End We Start From by Megan Hunter | A short story or an outline of a novel-to-be?”

The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller | How dangerous your emotions can be?

There were a few books this year that I picked up because of their amazing-sounding Blurb.  New Earth and Old Earth, Sci-fi and Dystopian, this new perfect life where noone can ever harm you, where there are no crimes, no illnesses, no hunger. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations.

This keeps happening to me over and over again, and I’m starting to doubt my ability to choose good books for myself. Maybe I’m being particularly picky or maybe I am making poor choices. Or the blurbs tend to lie more often than not! Continue reading “The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller | How dangerous your emotions can be?”

Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott | A very controversial subject. Was it appropriate for YA audience?

Sometimes it feels like authors have gone too far. I believe that YA is separated from Adult for a reason, not just because the characters fall into a certain age category but also because there are certain issues, subjects and problems that can be brought up in Adult literature and need to be carefully presented, if at all, in YA.

This one of those books. Continue reading “Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott | A very controversial subject. Was it appropriate for YA audience?”

Most Anticipated Releases | October 2017

 I’ve been loving this monthly “meme” of mine – looking for new releases, see what everyone else is excited about and just staying on top of the bookish market. So of course October was not going to be an exception and here I am once more to list all of the new books I am the most excited about!

We had a massive influx of new and exciting books in September, and October is kind of falling behind, not being able to weigh up to September’s hype. But that is alright, we, readers, do need calmer months to make sure we have the time to read ALL OF THOSE BOOKS! Continue reading “Most Anticipated Releases | October 2017”
