When We Were by Alexandra Diaz

I have a lot to thank this book for. I have been going through a major reading slump (again) this summer and I have barely felt like reading (which is not so great when you run a book blog). Thankfully, I was approached to review this books as part of Paper Lantern Lit’s Blog Tour. I am happy to say I enjoyed it a lot! When We Were by Alexandra Diaz is about […]

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George

I love fairy tale retellings and I can clearly recall picking up Princess of the Midnight Ball a few years ago specifically because I saw it was a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses.

That may be the reason I put off reading this one for so long, fearing […]

I stumbled across the first book and on a whim decided to purchase and read it. I wondered if it would live […]

Review: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

I honestly cannot believe it has taken me so long to read The Winner’s Curse. It has been sitting on my Kindle since April last year and, to be completely honest, I am kicking myself for not having read it sooner. I have seen many favourable reviews and I had an inkling I would enjoy it, but for some reason I kept putting off reading it. The Winner’s Curse is […]

Social Skills by Sara Alva

Social Skills is the debut novel by Sara Alva. I had actually read her second book Silent prior to reading this one and it was so good that I knew I had to read this too. Social Skills is such an incredibly heart-warming book. I just wanted to wrap the main character up in a great big hug and tell him everything was going to be ok. This book is […]
