  • ITHACA by Claire North (2022) : Book Review

    ITHACA by Claire North (2022) : Book Review

    A very promising start to this series of Penelope Songs, the book starts with the perspective of Hera, the queen of the gods. The reviews are quite mixed about this character’s choice of a narrator but I personnally loved it. I feel like we don’t talk about Hera or hear about her enough. And even […]

    Cafe con Lychee : YA Romance Book Review

    I think it’s been a really long time I haven’t read a romance as refreshing as this one. It has the enemies to lovers trope, LGBT+ and a lot of bobas and food. The Asian girl in me is just screaming. I honestly thought I would not like this book because it’s been a few […]

  • The Last Checkmate : BOOK Review

    What a great and impressive debut that Gabriella Saab delivered with this novel! Depicting a 14-year-old girl Maria, in an Auschwitz camp where playing chess against a sadistic Karl Fitzsch acting-commandant, is her only chance at survival. The novel oscillates between 3 different timelines and while keeping us readers on our toes, she manages to […]

  • 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. […]

    This book has been spotted by a few celebrities and becomes a most beloved books of 2021. It’s not hard to see why, it’s been a long time we haven’t seen a YA Book that is thrilling, deals with Indigenous culture and complex storyline.
