Genre Overdose | How resistant are you to reading books of the same genre consecutively?

Did this ever happen to you? I am 100% sure I am not the only one who gets a hangover from reading books of the same genre over and over again. However, if I am the one and only, then let’s talk about it anyway! It’s nice to get things off your chest, especially bookish things.

Honestly, I never had this problem before. I used to read only crime and thrillers over and over and over again! And it was just very enjoyable.

I thought I’d take you on a journey today through my bookish phases and maybe you will be willing to share yours in the comments down below! Continue reading “Genre Overdose | How resistant are you to reading books of the same genre consecutively?”

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff | Immersive and unconventionally written Sci-fi you MUST read!

Never have I ever… read a sci-fi book THAT good!
Never have I ever… heard about anything similar!
Never have I ever… seen such an unconventional story-telling!

The list can go on! If you read «Illuminae» before, why don’t you join the game in the comments down below?

I knew I would love this novel, however I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did and I was slightly worried about the way the story is told, a little bit apprehensive that I won’t be able to connect with the characters. But fear not! It was truly a unique reading experience that I intend to repeat as soon as possible – «Gemina» will be just as great!

The Last Days of Summer by Vanessa Ronan | A handful of contradicting thoughts!

Recently, it has been very difficult for me to rate several books. As it hasn’t been just one one occasion, it got me thinking – is there a problem with the books I pick up or with me?

For almost a year now I’ve been meaning to refine/define my rating system. It would help me out during these inner struggles and would also provide more information for you, guys, on what a 3-star rating actually means to me. But everytime I sit down to think about my ratings and what they mean to me, there are so many factors usually involved that it is hard to explain in a few words. Therefore, I decided to do something different and insert a Pros / Cons table at the end of my review!

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare | Disappointment is a light way of phrasing it!

Where do I even begin?! Last summer, around the same time, I read and fell in love with the new series by Cassandra Clare, more specifically «Lady Midnight» the first book in the Dark Artifices series. Being a fan of the Shadowhunter world for so long, I could have never imagined that a time would come when I didn’t like a book written by Cassandra Clare.
