Catherine Ryan Hyde Does It Again – A Beautiful Coming Of Age Novel About Compassion And Friendship Stay by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Catherine Ryan Hyde does it again – Stay is a serious, deep and very beautiful, yet realistic and down to Earth novel. This is my second book by her, and I was completely blown away by the first one, Where Is Luis Velez, so I was a little bit worried about reading another one (despite buying up ANYTHING by her…

Gosh I loved this book! Science + cats? Oh hell yes. How wouldn’t I like it? When you read the blurb or otherwise learn about a book that somebody has written on falling cats and the science around it, you inevitably think – wait, is this for real? This is seriously a book? You’d be tempted to think it’s ONLY…

The Greatest Book Blogging Myths I’ve Encountered Some Confessions And Thoughts On What We Think Blogging Is And What It Actually Is

When we start out blogging, we tend to have all these wild ideas about how book blogging actually works. More than that, we have so many hopes, a Iot of which seem to be ungrounded. So I’ve decided to write a post about book blogging myths we often start out with. Maybe it could prevent some confusion and disappointment in…

A Brilliant Dystopian Fantasy With A Twist That Uncovers The Dark Nature Of Humanity The Sundered by Ruthanne Reid, ★★★★★ 5 stars

Sometimes we value things based on how much they cost us. We can’t really help it, it’s simply psychology, or maybe its societal. But that’s not always right, and it certainly wasn’t when it came to The Sundered. Because I got this book as a freebie or review copy before I even blogged, and let it sit unread on my…

Heavy Content, Quirky Writing – Definitely Not For Everyone, But I Enjoyed Reading It Bunyan's Guide to the Great American Wildlife by Quentin Canterel, ★★★★☆ 4 stars

Bunyan’s Guide to the Great American Wildlife is no easy read, both for its contents (quite triggering) and its style (a lot of reviewers found it to be all over the place). Since I’ve read another book by Quentin Canterel, I can firmly say it’s simply the author’s quirky style, but if you get used to his storytelling, you will…

Women, Hippies, Minorities – But Not The Way You’re Used To Reading About Them Stay and Fight by Madeline Ffitch, ★★★★★ 5 stars

It’s hard to start the review for Stay and Fight. It’s one of those books you feel is not merely just a book, just a story. It’s so large it encompasses universes. Mindsets. Ideas. It’s so weird, but also so real, you’re simply sucked in. I was charmed and entranced by this book. My moods shifted along with the events…

It’s hard to even start reviewing The Design and Construction of the Nautilus, because its so unique and just so stunning. Have you ever wondered what would happen if the machines from your favorite scifi could be brought to life, at least in the form of blueprints and calculations? Of course, some of those might be well off limits –…

A Heart-Breaking, But Very Good Dystopian Critique Of Our Society Three Days Breathing by Mike Maguire, ★★★★✬ 4.5 stars

Three Days Breathing is a really good book, but its also incredibly sad, painfully so. But it is definitely worth the read, provided you can stomach it and the heaviness of its contents. I would even say that this is as much a literary novel, considering its depth and topics, as it is a dystopian fantasy. I will definitely not…
