Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas | Book Review

Remind me again why I didn’t read this book sooner? Lately it seemed that I was the only one that hadn’t read this book yet. Everybody kept raving about it, and boy did I feel bad for not reading it… So I ordered myself a copy (which I should have done when it first came out!) and can finally talk about the total awesomeness that is Throne of Glass! When you throw an assassin in a story, that’s bound to have me hooked. So when you throw in Celaena (aka the assassin) as a main character, that’s going to leave me with a book hangover! She was just that awesome! A perfect bled of badass, stubborn and girlish. One moment she’s plotting to kill everyone around…

Fragments by Dan Wells | Book Review

I have to tell you that sequels give me somewhat of a mixed feeling. They make me feel both excited and nervous. Very nervous because some don’t live up to your expectations and will leave you really disappointed, wishing you’d never read the book in the first place. Sequels really make or break a book . So lets start with a big round of applause for Dan Wells, because Fragments is EPIC! The story alternates between different point of views and you get to know a whole new side to the Partials. We even read some chapters in Samm’s perspective, who has quite some trouble expressing his thoughts and emotions, this makes his interactions with Kira so much more interesting. I just fell in love with Samm. The plotline…

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi | Short Story Review

When I heard about this novella I got all excited, because I thought it would be another novella from Warner’s point of view. Now I have never made it a secret that after reading Unravel Me I came to like Warner. While I liked Adam just fine, loved him for the part he played in the first book, in Unravel Me there was this nagging in the back of my mind that he and Juliette weren’t what they were supposed to be. After reading Fracture Me, which is told from Adam’s perspective and not Warner’s perspective, supported what I suspected. For me, it emphasised that I was right to think that Adam wasn’t the right guy for Juliette. While I suspected it, I had never thought that Adam’s…

Black Chalk by Albert Alla | Book Review

“Each memory came innocent and left tainted. And once tainted, memories grew persistent. Their stench remained and coloured other thoughts, so that, like an infection, I was soon left with nothing but tainted memories” I had to let this book sink in a little bit before writing my review. It was, as you can probably imagine, a heavy book to read. This book tackles such a difficult subject and it took me longer to read than I normally do. There where times that I just had to put the book down, put it down and continue reading the next day. This book is told from the First Person Narrative, we get to know everything through a first hand account from the only survivor of the shooting: Nate. Even though…
