The Two Princesses of Bamarre – Quest for the Gray Death Cure

Starting off 2022 with another childhood book review that I never got a chance to read by the same author. I always feel like all I do when on the night shift is work and sleep, but when it's quiet, I can do lots of reading. This story takes place in the kingdom of Bamarre.… Continue reading The Two Princesses of Bamarre – Quest for the Gray Death Cure

The Weeks of Reading Fruits Basket

It's not often that I pick up manga series and read my way through all its volumes like I used to. But ever since I got my Kobo, I've discovered some series I wanted to read. Like, Fruits Basket is a popular shojo series consisting of twenty-three volumes. I read bits and pieces some of… Continue reading The Weeks of Reading Fruits Basket

The Neverending Story – Journey to Find Oneself

Can you believe that I never read this book in my childhood?! I guess we're all late for something! Although come to think of it, I think it was read to me when I used to go to summer camp. Then, in sixth grade, I recall seeing the film adaptation and didn't realize what it… Continue reading The Neverending Story – Journey to Find Oneself

Extras – Hidden Aliens

After finishing the last book, Specials, I thought maybe this is a good ending to the series. The world is no longer divided based on appearance and no one is getting their brains altered for the surgeries. All thanks to Tally Youngblood who surprisingly chose to stay as a Special, even though she still has… Continue reading Extras – Hidden Aliens

Specials – Rise of a New System

Onto the third book of the Uglies series. This one felt like it didn't have as many exciting moments in it like its predecessor, even though there were a lot of action scenes. At this point it has definitely become like The Hunger Games. Tally is now part of Special Circumstances, the elite force who… Continue reading Specials – Rise of a New System

Pretties – Stay Bubbly to Survive

Miss me? I spent the last week settling into my new job and working on some Wattpad projects. I recently finished the second book in the Uglies series and this one was actually shorter but really built up the intensity of the series. The last book ended with Tally volunteering to test out the cure… Continue reading Pretties – Stay Bubbly to Survive

Uglies – Rebellion Against Plastic Surgery

Sounds like quite the relevant title for this review don't you think? I first heard of this series back in high school when the first novel was one of the books I could choose to read in English class, so I went with it and remembered reading it and liking the concept. Now, here I… Continue reading Uglies – Rebellion Against Plastic Surgery

The Alternate Doom Stories

What I'm about to do might be classified as controversial and I shudder at writing this a little. But then I remember I wanted to do it anyway. It started when I was browsing the Kobo store one night. Ever since I got myself a Kobo I've frequently searched for novels related to things I… Continue reading The Alternate Doom Stories

Once Upon A Nightwish – The Early Years

Another book down. This one was an early Christmas gift last year and before I read this I felt like, I have loved Nightwish for years but there is so little I know about them. Maybe it's time to learn more, and this book tells the story of the band's formation and era with their… Continue reading Once Upon A Nightwish – The Early Years
