{Review} The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I first heard of The Diabolic through BookTube. I believe it was a book featured in a subscription box, and lots of people on BookTube had received this box and thus hauled the book. What intrigued me the most wasn’t the synopsis (though that sounded interesting), it was the comparison to The Hunger Games and Star Wars. I was wondering how those two could be combined and added the book to my TBR. Around the time the book was released, a friend was kind enough to gift me an ARC copy of the book, and I told myself I would pick it […]

Review: The Force Awakens (Novel)

In December 2015, the newest Star Wars movie was released. Named “The Force Awakens” it introduced us to new characters and brought back some of the old characters as well. For me, TFA was the movie that made me fall in love with the Star Wars franchise, and Rey and Finn are amongst my favourite characters in the whole wide universe of characters. So I was pretty excited to find out this movie, as well as its predecessors, had a novelization. Obviously, The Force Awakens novel follows the same plot as the movie, only this time in words. It’s been approximately 30 years […]

Review: Wires and Nerve, vol. 1

Four years ago, I picked up a book called Cinder and over the years I fell head over heels in love with The Lunar Chronicles. After Stars Above was published, everyone thought ‘well that’s it’. The end of the Rampion gang and their adventures. Or was it? Suddenly, Marissa announced she was writing a graphic novel with Iko as the main focus, and let’s just say lots of people lost their minds, myself included. Wires and Nerve takes place after the events of Winter. Cinder/Selene is now queen of Luna, and all is well. But then, Cinder receives news that rogue packs […]

Review: Carve the Mark

When it was first announced Veronica Roth, the author of one of my favourite book series ever, was writing another book, I was 100% going to buy it on publication date. I had no idea what the book would be about, or if it would even be ‘up my alley’, but I was going to buy it. As more got announced about the book, I got even more excited, because this was definitely up my alley. Carve the Mark tells the story of two people from different cultures. We have Cyra, a Shotet, whose currentgift not only brings other people pain but herself as […]

Review: The American Adventures

A while back I was browsing Netgalley and my eyes fell upon a Doctor Who book. For some reason (and apparently I wasn’t the only one) I thought it was a graphic novel, so I immediately clicked ‘Read Now’, and then let it sit on my tablet for a while. But when I saw there was a limited time left to read the book, I decided to pick it up between the physical books I was reading. I was only slightly disappointed when I realised it wasn’t a graphic novel, but still rather excited because it was still Doctor Who. The American Adventures is […]

Review: Rogue One, A Star Wars Story

Around this time last year, I watched my first Star Wars movie ever. I had never really been into those movies when I was a kid, but eventually, I decided to give in to the hype. Who knew that a year later, I would be almost first in line for the new movie, Rogue One? This in-between movie, which takes place a little before A New Hope (1977) finally tells the story of how the rebels got their hands on the plans for the Empire’s newest superweapon, the Death Star. We follow Jyn Erso, whose father is one of the people responsible […]

Review: Gemina (Illuminae #2)

Last year, I read a small book called Illuminae and fell head-over-heels in love with it. This year, its sequel was released, and I was looking forward to it so much! Gemina was released on the 18th, and while I didn’t start reading it immediately (I had to finish another book first before I was allowed to start) I do believe I finished it within almost a day. Gemina has a new set of main characters, Hanna Donnely and Nik Malikov, and takes place on the jump station Heimdall. We follow Hanna and Nik as Heimdall gets invaded by a BeiTech team – who are […]

Review: The Thousandth Floor

A couple of weeks ago, I had a job interview. It went well, if I may say so, but they ended up not hiring me. To cheer myself up, I decided to go to my local bookstore, where I bought The Thousandth Floor. I had heard about it briefly on the internet and had seen pictures of that gorgeous cover, so I decided to just bring it with me. The fact that it took place a hundred years in the future was probably what got me so intrigued. The Thousandth Floor tells the story of a couple of inhabitants of a gigantic […]
