Review: Stolen

Warning: This review is full of rants and spoilers. Please proceed with caution. Back when I first got a Goodreads page, I found out about this book and added it to my TBR list. The summary sounded intriguing, and I liked the ‘letter to my captor’ idea. Fast forward to last year, where I finally purchased a copy of the book, after adding and deleting it from my virtual shopping basket every now and then. And to now, where I finally picked up this book to read it. In Stolen Gemma writes a letter to Ty, the man who kidnapper her from the airport in Bangkok. The man …

Review: Heartless

A couple of years ago, I fell in love with a series called The Lunar Chronicles. When the last book came out at the beginning of last year, fans were already anxiously awaiting a new book by the author. And that new book was Heartless, a story set in the same whimsical world as Alice in Wonderland. The untold story of the horrible Queen of Hearts. In Heartless we meet Catherine, who wants nothing more than to open a bakery with her best friend. But her parents have other plans for her. They want her to marry the King and become the Queen of Hearts. One night, Catherine …

Review: Gone Without a Trace

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review. This has not changed my opinion in any way. As much as I love Young Adult books, I’m always trying to broaden my horizon – so they say – and sometimes pick up a book, not in that genre. I love thrillers and mystery books, so when I saw this book on the First to Read website, I decided to request it. In Gone Without a Trace, we meet Hannah, who comes home one day to find her boyfriend, Matt, has disappeared. All of his belongings, pictures of him and even …

Review: Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX

Last year I found a piece of art that featured some Marvel characters as babies, and I loved it so much I looked up who the artist was. I found out it was an actual page from an actual existing comic, actually published by Marvel. So naturally, I looked up the comic, added it to my TBR and bought the volume when its price got reduced on Book Depository. Giant-Size Little Marvel follows the Avengers and the X-Men as they fight over a pair of twins that have just moved into Marville, their little (that’s a pun) zone on the planet Battleworld. In Marville, we have …

Review: The Upside of Unrequited

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This has not changed my opinion in any way. In April last year, Becky Albertalli came to my country and I read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. While I probably didn’t love it as much as basically everyone else did, I enjoyed it very much and was curious for more of Becky’s books. Her new book, The Upside of Unrequited would be about a girl named Molly who has had crushes on twenty-six different guys; but zero boyfriends. When I saw it on Netgalley, I decided to request it because they were …

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 of Lunar Special Operatives are …

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 well. Then, there’s Akos, a …
