[Urban Fantasy] It Was Epic And This Review Has Too Many GIFs The Long Way Down by Craig Schaefer

The Long Way Down was recommended time and again by my Goodreads friends, but I was like… No, detectives… Murder… No… But then one of them said the magic words: PC Grant series. And that, my friends, always opens to door. So I took their word on it, and tried my luck with The Long Way Down. No regrets, baby. No regrets. Check…

[Slice of Life] Fall In Love With All The Characters, And They’re Diverse Too The Sunday Lunch Club by Juliet Ashton

I stayed up till 3 on a workday because I couldn’t unglue myself from my Kindle screen. Off this book. Then I proceeded to tell the whole soap-opera like plot of The Sunday Lunch Club to my boyfriend right before breakfast. In a roughly panicked, nearly screamy tone. With loads of hand flapping. Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬…

[Scifi review] A Quirky, Funny And Dynamic Scifi Classic Doorways in the Sand by Roger Zelazny

If you’re looking for a slightly different and more lighthearted scifi to relax with, Doorways in the Sand is for you. I mean, you could probably tell that from the cover anyway. Doorways in the Sand is actually no newcomer – first released in 1976, it was nominated for the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards. This year, we are seeing Farrago bring this witty…

[Historical fiction] The Harsh Realities Of Slavery In Martinique, 1765 Sugar Money by Jane Harris

At first I was reluctant to request Sugar Money because I’m a weakling at handling slavery stories sometimes. I turn into a puddle of sobs. But, despite being quite detailed about the hardships of slave life in 1765, it was a very engaging read. It doesn’t have a very happy ending, as you might surmise, but it tells a story worth…

[Fantasy] Tower Of Epicness (And Epic Proportions) Returns In Sequel!!! Arm of the Sphinx by Josiah Bancroft, Buddy Read With Trang @ Bookidote

About a year ago, when I just started blogging, I read Senlin Ascends and posted the most excited review ever (literally, it has a piggy running around in circles). It was one of my first successful reviews – people really responded to it. Later on, when Orbit picked the book up, they contacted me, asking if it would be okay if…

[Scifi MG/YA] Doing Magic, But With Science… And Woah! There’s A School! The Zanna Function by Daniel Wheatley

The Zanna Function was AMAZING!!! It was so amazing, I had trouble finding what to pick up next after it, and then spent at least a week actively missing reading it. All I can truly hope for is that it won’t be a standalone, because it’s too good to just end right there! 5 Reasons To Read The Zanna Function…
