{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: HEX

I believe I first heard about this book from the Dutch book scene, and it intrigued me because it’s one of the few Dutch books I know that got translated into English. People called this book creepy, said they couldn’t sleep anymore after finishing and had to sleep with the lights on. I’d been wanting to read a good horror book, even though I am a big pussy, but had been severely disappointed so far. I borrowed my sister’s copy and dove straight into this book – hoping that I would finally have found the one book that would actually creep me […]

Review: The Circle

I think I first heard about this book around the time the movie was announced. I was quite intrigued by the summary and decided to get myself a copy a while back. But then, I read a couple of pages and couldn’t really get into it. So I put it down again, hoping to pick it up before the movie came out. About a week before its release, I picked up The Circle again and had to force myself past those couple of pages – thinking it would probably all get more interesting later on… It didn’t. This book, this […]

Review: The One Memory of Flora Banks

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This has not changed my opinion in any way. A while ago, I started hearing a lot of things about a book called The One Memory of Flora Banks, and the title surely stayed in my head for a while. When I saw it available for request, I decided to go ahead and request it. I thought it would be a cool mystery book, and I decided not to read the synopsis before diving into this book. The One Memory of Flora Banks is about Flora, […]

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: The Cursed Child (Play)

In October 2015 I bought tickets to see the official eighth Harry Potter story performed at the Palace Theatre in London. I was so excited and so ready for my favourite book series ever to continue… That is until I got my hands on the script of said play and read it. If you’ve read my review, which can be found here, you will know I hated it. I loved the nostalgia, I loved seeing my favourite characters again, but the story was just not good at all. Still, I had tickets to see the play and I was not planning on […]

Review: Beauty and the Beast (2017)

A couple of years ago, Disney started remaking some of their classic movies into live action versions. There were rumours already that they were planning on doing Beauty and the Beast as well, with Emma Watson as Belle. But the news never came, until suddenly it was officially announced that they were doing BATB and they did cast Emma as the main character. All of a sudden we had trailers, pictures and then the movie was there. Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a prince who had been cursed by a witch to look like a hideous beast. The only way to break the […]

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 […]
