I Finally Read Circe and I Was Bored: Circe by Madeline Miller Review

Madeline Miller's books have been on my TBR for so long, I have built them up so much in my head that it's debatable whether or not the books could ever match my expectations. The Song of Achilles is one I get recommended more, but I decided to start with Circe, since I have that… Continue reading I Finally Read Circe and I Was Bored: Circe by Madeline Miller Review

This is exactly what the premise of This is All Your Fault by Aminah Mae Safi is all about, and when I first read it, I was super excited to… Continue reading Review: This is All Your Fault by Aminah Mae Safi

Emotions Were Felt: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

You know when you read a book by an author and it's so good that you declare said author a favorite without ever reading another of their books? This happened to me with Backman.

Women’s Prize Reviews #10: Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo

This is my final read for the Women's Prize 2020 list! What an exciting journey it was!

Disappointment is My First, Middle and Last Name: Majesty (American Royals 2) by Katharine McGee Review

Last year I read and loved American Royals – it was a CW show in book form, dramatic, over the top, and very, very angsty. I was really engaged the whole time I read it, it took me no time at all and I really got attached to the characters and their relationships. It was… Continue reading Disappointment is My First, Middle and Last Name: Majesty (American Royals 2) by Katharine McGee Review

Women’s Prize Reviews #9: Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

We're back with Women's Prize reads! I abandoned my reading of the longlist, and was determined to finish reading the shortlist, so here we are. I might end up not reading one final book from the shortlist (I know you completionists will  judge me, but I just don't care). I am now in the middle… Continue reading Women’s Prize Reviews #9: Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

This Book Lives in My Mind Rent Free: The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang Review

I've been meaning to read The Poppy War ever since it started making rounds in the community, but ever since I got super busy, I tend to save longer Fantasy books for the hypothetical situation in which I have more free time. But I just have to accept the fact that I never seem to… Continue reading This Book Lives in My Mind Rent Free: The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang Review

Review: Migrations by Charlotte McConaghy

"My life has been a migration without a destination, and that in itself is senseless." This book has been on the periphery of my radar because it seemed like an interesting premise, but I was not sure if I was to pick it up. But then the lovely people at Libro.fm supplied me with an… Continue reading Review: Migrations by Charlotte McConaghy
