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 returning those. (The above purchase …

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 curse was if he could …

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 …
