The Queen of Nothing Review

The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black The Queen of Nothing. The final book in the Folk of the Air trilogy. Wow.

Gemina Review

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman I LOVED THIS BOOK. First, a bit of context/ raving about the series as a whole. The key to this entire series is the format. Told through online messaging, transcripts, AI dialogue and other reports, there is not a single stream of narrative, which is what makes theseContinue reading “Gemina Review”

Renegades Review

Renegades by Marissa Meyer This story is an interesting and original take on the traditional superheroes vs villains fight, similar in its uniqueness to Marissa Meyer’s other retellings including The lunar chronicles and Heartless, one of my favourite books. Renegades matched the other books in being very readable and engaging.The origins of the prodigies’ powersContinue reading “Renegades Review”
