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

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: 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

Review: Miss Julie by August Strindberg

(this review will contain spoilers for the entire play) As a woman, as a feminist and as a believer in equality it truly pains me to have to admit I find some of the themes from this play still in existence today. The play was originally written over a hundred years ago by a man… Continue reading Review: Miss Julie by August Strindberg

Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

After reading the first few pages of this dream of a book, I felt like screaming aloud "this is what good writing is!". Of course, I didn´t. Cause you know, might not be appropriate to wake my family at 1 am by screaming. But I wanted to, okay. And I think the fact that I… Continue reading Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
