Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey A Retelling of Shakespeare's Tragic Tale

Today I’m reviewing Miranda and Caliban – a retelling of The Tempest by Shakespeare, which, I must admit, I have not read. That has had me worried about writing this review, but I guess it IS a retelling, so it’s okay if you read it as a standalone. I hate to say it, but as much as… Continue reading Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey A Retelling of Shakespeare's Tragic Tale

The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak Fun, nerdy, relatable and yet shocking - a tale of being a teen in the 80's

Back to the blog and so long to the unannounced, unplanned hiatus. Or rather, I hope so? Like some of you might have noticed, or at least my egoistic and attention craving little blogger-self hopes you have, I have been away from blogging for at least two weeks. A good, solid fortnight. And none the wiser, cause… Continue reading The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak Fun, nerdy, relatable and yet shocking – a tale of being a teen in the 80's

Our Short History by Lauren Grodstein It's got it all - love and joy, sorrow and pain

This blog post has been eaten up by the evil server-killing monsters on the unfortunate day of Jan 24th, when my blog has been offline for *gasp!* around 24 hours for the first time. I am reconstructing it through my GR review (which is thankfully almost the same, cause it was that one time I decided… Continue reading Our Short History by Lauren Grodstein It's got it all – love and joy, sorrow and pain

The Bear And The Nightingale by Katherine Arden It's nothing like Deathless, but that's a good thing

So this is actually a book people have been waiting for me to review. And yet… I finished this more than a week ago, and I still feel like my review is nowhere near the way I want it to be. No pressure. So I’ll just have to publish the review the way it is, because… Continue reading The Bear And The Nightingale by Katherine Arden It's nothing like Deathless, but that's a good thing

This is me joining Mount TBR Or how I signed up to read at least 36 books of my pile

I’ve obviously been joining quite a lot of reading challenges lately, but I have to say, this must be the most fun one. At least, I think it will be. It’s called Mount TBR, hosted by My Reader’s Block, and the goal is to climb your mountain of books as high as you can! Meaning, to… Continue reading This is me joining Mount TBR Or how I signed up to read at least 36 books of my pile

Faithful by Alice Hoffman Or my magical read of New Year's Night

Hi everyone, today I’m finally going to review Faithful by Alice Hoffman. Originally, this was the first book I read this year. But I was having one of those “book too good to write review” things again. And now I’ve reviewed Throwing My Life Away, but still haven’t reviewed Faithful. Tut tut, Evelina. Actually, this… Continue reading Faithful by Alice Hoffman Or my magical read of New Year's Night

Throwing My Life Away by Liz Czukas Or how I found out #nostalgia is a thing and I'm a total #softie

So it’s time for me to own up to the fact that I like fun books. Girly books. Highschool nostalgia books. CHICK BOOKS. Cause I’ve been waaaaay too intellectual to read any fun stuff. It was all a no-no, cause I mean, you’ve got to read all the tough stuff so everyone knows you sleep… Continue reading Throwing My Life Away by Liz Czukas Or how I found out #nostalgia is a thing and I'm a total #softie
