Chouchou Jiken ♡ Haruka

Chouchou Jiken ♡ Haruka

There are spoilers ahead, but I’ve tried my best to put major plot ones under spoiler cuts. Haruka has ruined me for all of the other routes. I’m sorry, but I don’t think they’re gonna measure up anymore, just look at this babe. Amazing. Before we get started, though, considering you can see two of Haruka in the character list on the official Otomate site, and the character descriptions literally tell you he’s male I’m not […]

As you can probably tell I don’t have any reviews or anything that kind of counts as semi-interesting content ready at the moment, so here’s some rambles about what I’ve been doing lately instead❤︎ (Other than messing about and changing my blog theme a bit anyway)                Duke of my Heart (A Season for Scandal, #1) by Kelly Bowen – Initially I’d wanted to read the third one in this […]

Review ♦︎ The Love Interest

Review ♦︎ The Love Interest

I have never been more disappointed in a book in my life. Okay, I may be exaggerating, but this definitely comes pretty close. The Love Interest is about two people fighting for the affection of Juliet, only to fall in love with each other. I only wish it was as good as it sounded. Love Interests are people, usually teenagers, trained from a young age to become either Nice Guys or Bad Boys; they’re sent to […]

Review ♦︎ Shadow

Review ♦︎ Shadow

Wendy Darling was a girl with a purpose, not remotely the same girl who had fled Pan Island in a flurry of fear. I love Wendy Darling, which is probably not something you hear often considering the general disdain people have for girly girls or motherly girls or girls in general, but I love her in most incarnations. I especially love her in this one. She’s not the strongest, or the best fighter, and has […]

Review ♦︎ Seas

Review ♦︎ Seas

“Children are not just children in Neverland, Wendy Darling. You should know that more than anyone.”  We already know Peter to be an unreliable narrator, so it’s no surprise that Hook is not so much a monster but just a man. Pirates, however, aren’t always the best people to trust so Wendy has to navigate a tentative agreement with Captain Hook, avoiding Peter, finding a safe place on the ship, and keeping herself and Michael […]

Review ♦︎ Stars

Review ♦︎ Stars

“Everyone loses themselves a little in Neverland.” I have never loved and hated a Peter Pan so much in my life. Stars starts like a typical retelling of Peter Pan, it shows the stifling life of London, the expectations falling on Wendy’s shoulders, the restrictions of class, and disappointments that come with growing up. Then Peter sweeps in in a swirl of colours and starlight, and Wendy can’t look away. I love retellings, and Stars is a fun one. […]

Disappearing acts

Disappearing acts

How are blog entries supposed to go after disappearing for months on end? Filled with many excuses like mine usually are, I guess, oh well. Excuses: work, uni, sleep. My bad, sorry lol Also, apologies again because I think this post is turning a little bit into a pity party. Whoops. I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately; a reading slump, a gaming slump, a writing slump, an ‘everything takes too much effort […]

Review ♦︎ Rebel Spring

Review ♦︎ Rebel Spring

Love triangles, love triangles everywhere. You know what this book needs? More love triangles, that’ll help! Please stop. I think I found Rebel Spring more disappointing than Falling Kingdoms. Yes, there were plenty of tropes I disliked in the first one, predictable plotlines, and flat characters, but it was much better than this. It took me that long to get through it that I was almost ready to DNF it, but that wasn’t something I could bring myself […]

Been a while

Been a while

Whoops! I kind of disappeared off the face of the earth for a while there. Sorry about that lol Reasons(/excuses) are as follows: Internet outage for multiple days I had no idea what to do with myself at all. Do I read? Do I translate? Do I do uni stuff? None of it sounded appealing, and I was so bored (´△`)↓ I would have preferred going to work. Uni stuff Some assignments crept up on me […]

Wonder Week Read-A-Thon TBR

Wonder Week Read-A-Thon TBR

From the 25th August to the 1st September, Rimpy’s Reads is hosting Wonder Week Read-A-Thon which sounds like a lot of fun (and probably a lot easier than other read-a-thons I was contemplating joining because I chose the complete worst time possibly to download Final Fantasy XIV). So, the theme is to make a line in the following bingo board. I’m gonna be ambitious and fail at getting 100% of them lol My TBR (going down each column): […]
