Racism, Evil Governments And Our Small Lives: A Relevant Story In Today’s World The Test by Sylvain Neuvel, ★★★★★ 5 stars

Sylvain Neuvel is an amazing writer, and The Test is an incredible book. I don’t understand how you can put this much tension in merely around 100 pages!! And I have absolutely no idea how to review it without spoilers. Maybe you could just take my word on the fact that you should absolutely, definitely read it? Check out on…

A Dark Semi-Slow-Burn Thriller About Some Forgotten WWII Nightmares A Room Full of Night by T.R. Kenneth

When I got this book off Edelweiss as a free download, I didn’t know if I’d like it. I don’t read a lot of thrillers either, but something in the blurb just hooked me. And it made for some good reading! For lovers of thrillers and conspiracy theories, it’s definitely worth a go. Check out on Goodreads ★★★✬☆ 3.5 stars…

A Poignant Coming Of Age Story Angie by K.A. Tremblay

It took me almost half a year to read Angie – but that’s not because I didn’t like it. Angie is one of those books that grips you to the heart, and you just somehow know it won’t exactly end well. Poignant is all I can call it, because while the ending completely flooded me with #feels and broke me, it…

A Book That Brings Some Magic Back Into The 21st Century The Heavens by Sandra Newman

It’s been a while that I’ve read a book like The Heavens – one that’s essentially a contemporary, but somehow feels so much like a fairytale. And it’s not that it’s got any fairytale stuff going on at all – perhaps it just hints at magical realism or something like that. No, it’s more in the way the story is…

Traveling From Your Living Room: Another Camino de Santiago Memoir I Loved Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino De Santiago by Beth Jusino

I finished Walking to the End of the World several weeks ago, but I am still feeling a reading hangover, so to say – I still wish I was reading it. I keep catching myself stuck in how I imagined the places the book talked about the the way it made me feel. It’s like I almost went there myself.…

The Best Moon Mission Book I’ve Ever Read, Without Doubt Moon Mission: The Epic 400-Year Journey to Apollo 11 by Sigmund Brouwer

This book was awesome! So awesome, in fact, it was like a breath of fresh air in my several-months-long reading and blogging slump. It’s Moon Mission that got me out of my hiatus, because I was actually so excited to write the review! Let me start with the fact that while it may be written with teens in mind, its…

Teens Fight For Their Right To Choose Their Career – The Theatre The Swish of the Curtain: Blue Door 1 by Pamela Brown, ★★★★☆ 4 stars

I was so excited to write a review for this one! The Swish of the Curtain is strangely both as relevant as ever, and slightly dated at the same time. But it’s a wonderful read! First released in 1941, it talks about timeless things such as ambition, talent and… your parents not letting you do what you want with your…

And so today I have a fellow bookworm and book blogger here, to talk about her experience with dyslexia and how she nonetheless pursued her hobby of…
