Review: Doing It! by Hannah Witton

"So, a useful mental imagery to have in your head is: would this still be sexy if Wormtail from Harry Potter was doing it?" Now, I was raised in a household where talking about sex, sexuality and all things around it never were thought of as taboo. When I was 12 and I thought it… Continue reading Review: Doing It! by Hannah Witton

Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

“There's a monster in our wood. She'll get you if you're not good. Drag you under leaves and sticks. Punish you for all your tricks. A nest of hair and gnawed bone. You are never, ever coming... home.” This. Was. Just. Great. I really loved this book. I loved the premise of the story, the… Continue reading Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

"Forget them. Burn them all, burn everything. Fire is bright and fire is clean." I´m torn on this one... At the same time as I think I really enjoyed it and all the interesting ideas about society it has, I think it mostly just confused me and left me sort of high and dry. To… Continue reading Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

“My words are unerring tools of destruction, and I’ve come unequipped with the ability to disarm them.” This was my second read from Maggie Stiefvater and after finding The Scorpio Races so-so, I´m pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed The Raven Boys. I didn´t really know what I expected going into this, but, I… Continue reading Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

I usually like to open up my reviews with a nice quote or line from the book that I particularly enjoyed or found interesting, but I honestly can´t say I have one from this book. I was really excited to read this book, but sadly, it was quite the disappointment. I usually don´t like writing… Continue reading Review: Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

Review: Oil and Marble by Stephanie Storey

“Think … the greater danger for most of us is not in aiming too high and falling short, but in aiming too low and hitting the mark.” As a fanatic of both books and art, I couldn´t really imagine a book more fitting than this one. Oil and Marble is a novel about two of… Continue reading Review: Oil and Marble by Stephanie Storey

Review: Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

“Fiction is truth, even if it is not fact. If you believe only in facts and forget stories, your brain will live, but your heart will die.” OH. MY. LAWD. Now, reviewing this book without really including spoilers is going to be near impossible since it´s so far into the Shadowhunter Chronicles and involves so… Continue reading Review: Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
