Bohemian Gospel

This was something that I liked incredibly much. Even as the last chapters had me mostly wondering what happened and whether there was time skip. But the story opens in a way that is unforgettable and even later never loses sight of who Mouse is as a character. And for all that she is, she… Continue reading Bohemian Gospel

Anna Dressed In Blood

It wasn't exactly what I expected, but for once it is pretty good in how it delivers something different and not make me feel disappointed to say the least. It is about Cas who is a ghost hunter looking for Anna, who died in a good dress as much as it became her defining identity.… Continue reading Anna Dressed In Blood

What makes Kuroshitsuji enticing?

Although many say that it is a series which has lost its focus with recent arcs, which I won't rebuke because it is the truth. The story didn't develop nearly as much after the Campaigna, especially in the blue sect arc. But I'm here to talk about just what made Black Butler so incredibly addictive,… Continue reading What makes Kuroshitsuji enticing?

The Raven Boys

If there is anything that I say about it, it will be that this was disappointing. I wasn't absorbed into Blue's story, not at all. Most of the time I was wondering what was going on, and what was the point of all these scenes in the first place. I didn't seem to grasp why… Continue reading The Raven Boys

The Dead Girls Of Hysteria Hall

It wasn't anything that was groundbreaking or new. But it was satisfying, it told a story and made itself to be entertaining. Which is more than enough to keep me hooked. Delia is the main character and she goes through quite a lot. I prefer not to say, since the entire reason why I began… Continue reading The Dead Girls Of Hysteria Hall

The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

If there was anything that really screwed with my mind, in a way that I barely knew what was going on, yet I still savoured every word, this is it. It is told from seven different perspectives, but not once did I find it boring, each one holds an important key, and really twists it… Continue reading The 71/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

The Flame Never Dies

This was one book which I really didn't expect a lot of things. And well, it was written in such a way that I fully enjoyed the series. For what it was, and how it was written. To me, this isn't like most books. The premise is original, and the sequel definitely surprised me in… Continue reading The Flame Never Dies

The Girl Who Saved Ghosts

Perhaps if it had been just that bit more gritty, I will have liked it. The concept was nice and caught my eye. It was very easy to like the main character, and I believed her on many levels. I really cared about her relationship with her mother, which was rather interestingly more complex than… Continue reading The Girl Who Saved Ghosts

Jane, Unlimited

And this is a book where I really liked the way it was written. The path of unlimited possibilities and the story of Jane and her choices. This is really light on the romance but it is all about possibilities, her choices. And for once, this worked with me. Since the author had a very… Continue reading Jane, Unlimited

The Night Of Elisa

Well, the story begins with Elisa waking and having little idea of what she is herself. Or where she came from. But eventually her personality was slowly developed, to the point that I greatly enjoyed the story. The writing was the strongest point of the story if you ask me. Where I found it full… Continue reading The Night Of Elisa

The Kings Of Bones And Ashes

This just wasn't my thing. I really tried to get into it, but it just didn't have much of a story to tell. This is a very slow work, and to me it just never picked up the pace fast enough. Or even made the characters interesting enough to keep me reading. I just felt… Continue reading The Kings Of Bones And Ashes

The Magdeburg Relic

I just didn't feel as though this was written for me. Initially, the beginning was intriguing as well as fascinating. It was written in such a way which really made me curious. But I just didn't care. The characters fell flat to me, with very little depth which I enjoyed or even saw among the… Continue reading The Magdeburg Relic

In The Shadow Of Blackbirds

I really enjoyed this novel. Even when the entire story started from a death, and although it still ended in the same way. But I loved Mary Shelley. She was such an original character, and most importantly I always found her really relatable and even realistic. And that she has seen so much, and despite… Continue reading In The Shadow Of Blackbirds

Keeper

I feel rather mixed about this book. On one hand it did probe to be a fun ride for most of it, but eventually it just became what I read so often in paranormal all over. Although I do like how Lainey handled it, that she was wanting answers and demanded them instead of just… Continue reading Keeper

Eye Of The Moon

This was just very surprising. It had a huge touch of the paranormal and definitely felt very very Gothic. This is a mystery, and a thriller. Slow at the beginning, and for much of the book. But by the end, there were plenty of secrets revealed, a touch of the occult and bizarre things happening.… Continue reading Eye Of The Moon

Beneath The Skin

Something about this just didn't work with me, it wasn't about the book. It just wasn't to my taste. It is about werewolves with a hint of romance. But I found it really uninteresting to be reading about, it just wasn't what I expected or even knew wanting to read at all. Although the werewolf… Continue reading Beneath The Skin

The Gloaming

I just give up, there is absolutely nothing that interest me. While some things suggest that this is erotica, and not the kind I want to read. And well, apart from the vampires who is just there and only exists as such, without much of any explanation. Surrounded by four narrators and not one who… Continue reading The Gloaming

Summoner

I just found this a little strange. The beginning was rather intriguing, about the grave digging and the voice hearing. But eventually it descended into nothing more than just boredom. Allie was okay initially, I understood her need to want to speak to her mother and everything. But she became rather boring as time went,… Continue reading Summoner

The Rogue’s Discovery

I think I am just getting too old for this kind of work. Especially after the description, I really should have guessed what the work was all about. I really tried to get into the work and I just couldn't. There wasn't a single thing that really caught my attention at all. If it wasn't… Continue reading The Rogue’s Discovery

Inish Clare

Well, I expected a lot more than this. At least in terms of the mystery and historical fiction. However, what I got was a rather bland story where I barely know even the main characters at all, and that the main narrator was largely forgettable. Paired with an even more forgettable mystery and even one… Continue reading Inish Clare
