Reign the Earth by A. C. Gaughen | Book Review

Reign the Earth is such a richly spun tale full of amazingness that I am having trouble forming cohesive sentences about it, let alone write a full review. However, I decided that I am going to try because I want nothing more than to persuade you to read this book as well. I want to see this book on your shelves, your TBRs, and in your lives, period. Why you need to read Reign the Earth The main character, Shalia, is fiercely loyal and brave. She is such a selfless individual who, when faced with tough decisions, isn’t above doing everything in her powers to do the right thing. I loved getting to know her and seeing how she tackled the struggles that came her…

Epic Love Stories to Turn to in Times of Need

If I got paid for every time I get asked ‘what’s up’ with ‘my love life’, I’d surely be a millionaire by now. Whether it be by a meddling aunt, your parents, or by curious friends that particular question always manages to exhaust me. So for everyone that’s still wondering: the ‘love life’ is non-existent. There’s no man (or woman) in my life. As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure Prince Charming took a detour in getting here (a serious error in judgment on his end). To everyone who lives through the same, this post is for you! Most days I am totally fine with my single way of life. But some days, the lack of that epic love story makes me feel a little ‘meh.’…

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young | Book Review

I am always up for a good and solid Viking type of story!

Lucky for me (and you!) Sky in the Deep delivered, and how! If you are not into lots of action and (some) gore, this book might not be for you. It is fast paced and action packed from the start, as you’re immediately thrown into a battle between two rival clans. And, for the rest of the story, that fast paced and action-packed vibe doesn’t let up! (Yay!) Eelyn, the main character in Sky in the Deep, is hard and…

Book vs Movie: Love, Simon

Many of you might already have seen the Love, Simon film months ago. Guess what, even though the film is already out on DVD in the US, in the Netherlands the film isn’t in theatres until 14 June. However, as I managed to snag a ticket for a pre-screening, my mom and I saw the film in May and it is about high time I dedicated a post to it. Let’s rewind a bit: I didn’t actually read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (or any other Becky Albertalli book for that matter) until a few months ago… I know, THE SHAME. But that doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that I fell head over heels with the story and have been firmly established in the…
