    The Fall of Babel : Books of Babel #4 Review

    I have postponed this review for so long for one reason: I cannot deal with the fact that this series is ending. Suffering from the syndrome of denial haha. For those of you who are here from the beginning, I have a big love for Senlin Ascends and I still believe no books have quite […]

  • The Starless Sea : BOOK REVIEW

    Eight years after The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern returns with a brand new novel involving a Starless Sea, an Owl King, Magical Doors and whole lots of books. The author’s writing style still remains one of my favourites. She is so comfortable describing fantasy elements that it’s almost annoying how good she is at it. […]

  • Black Leopard Red Wolf : Book Review

    “Bi oju ri enu a pamo. Not everything the eye sees should be spoken by the mouth.” Oof I finished this book and oh my do I have things to say. To start off, I really struggled to get into this book for several reasons. But the most dominant one was the non-linear storyline. The […]

  • The Absolute Book by Elizabeth Knox

    “I want today to give up being so smugly sure about what tomorrow won’t need.” – Elizabeth Knox, The Absolute Book Is it weird that I’m still working the plot out after finishing the book? Elizabeth Knox’s newest novel is a full-on surprising ride to say the least. A story that cannot be told by […]

    I fell in love with Circe by Madeline Miller and I had to read the book that made her debut, The Song of Achilles. Picture Greece in the age of heroes, the narrator is Patroclus son of Menoetius, that makes him a prince but a quite awkward prince in his manner. After a terrible incident, […]

    Reading this book is my first attempt at trying a Nebula Award book this year and since it got so many good reviews in the blogosphere, it also encourages me to finally pick it up and even suggested it to my friends for our book club of September. To give you an idea of the […]
