    How Do You Define Genres : SciFi, YA, Fantasy, etc.

    I have encountered this problem so many times these past few years: no one knows exactly what each genre refers to. We know the general aspects of it: fantasy = wizards, scifi = spaceships ; YA = John Green ; Murder mystery = killer, but what are they really?  In a lot of discussions, I […]

  • VOX by Christina Dalcher

    VOX by Christina Dalcher

    “Think about waking up one morning and finding you don’t have a voice in anything.” Sometimes I receive bookmails and I’m excited for them because I know the books, and once in a while, I receive the most random bookmail that I never heard of. So, It can go both ways: whether I hate it […]

    LIFEL1K3 – A Creative Mashup

    The Illuminae Series have to be one of the most entertaining YA science-fiction that Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman have delivered in the past years. When I heard about Jay Kristoff releasing a new scifi series, I couldn’t help but having very high expectations. It ends up being one of my favourite reads of the […]

    I have the very bad habit to always postpone the reading of a book whenever the book gets too good. Am I the only one?! I would start to SLOW DOWN on purpose and not read it for a few hours. This is what happened with this book. I also postponed this review hahah but […]

    UNEARTHED : Tomb Raider in Space

    GUYS !! I found a magic recipe to enjoy YA nowadays : lowering my expectations! That’s why when I started seeing the hype around this book, I wouldn’t dare having too much expectation nor reading what’s it about. I just take where the book leads me. It worked! Now now you must say: THAT’S A […]
