Review: Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen

This book was what got me out of my reading slump. I'm actually shocked. Looking at it, you'd think "Looks a bit short, sounds a bit down, maybe not for me." Believe me, Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen is a book-slump-beater. 224 pages of pure hilarity. So, as in most cases, spoilers below! If you'd like… Continue reading Review: Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen

WATCH IT! Wednesdays: Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

I'm so excited to talk about Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist! It's one of my favourite book-to-film adaptations on the planet. If you haven't read this book, do it. If you haven't seen the movie, do it. Either way, it's fantastic. In case you haven't head of this magic before, a little backstory/synopsis. Nick and Norah's Infinite… Continue reading WATCH IT!

Review: Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

I have so many emotions when it comes to this one. I absolutely adore this series and basically everything Richelle writes, if I'm being completely honest. I'm positive that she is the Queen of book endings; I don't know where she gets the motivation to destroy all of my feelings but I love it! As… Continue reading Review: Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

Review: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

I was so hesitant about starting this book. I was afraid I wouldn't like it as much as The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices...but HOLY MOLY I WAS WRONG!!! Cassandra Clare has breathed life back into this reader and there are MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!   Where do I even begin? Probably Kit. Definitely Kit. In the Prologue,… Continue reading Review: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Review: Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare

It's exciting to think that the stories and characters presented to us in The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices continued in this book. It's even more exciting to think that this book filled some of the gaps missing for Lady Midnight. This book of collected novellas made me so, so happy. As always, spoilers below..... THIS BOOK Y'ALL!… Continue reading Review: Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare

Review: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince is the second novel in Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices trilogy. Ooooh boy... it's good. It's so, so good. As always, spoilers ahead... This second instalment opens just as spooky and haunting as Clockwork Angel. Will is meeting with ghosts, Tessa and Jem are touring the gravestones of dead artists in Westminster Abbey... I was hooked from… Continue reading Review: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

Review: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

And thus begins the reviews for the series that knocked Harry Potter out of the number one spot... that's right, it sounds blasphemous but hey, it finally happened! The first book in Clare's Infernal Devices trilogy is basically the explanatory book for the continuation of the series. In Clockwork Angel, Clare defines what a Shadowhunter is, why they exist,… Continue reading Review: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
