Review | A Million Worlds With You

Review | A Million Worlds With You

Traveling to other dimensions can be scary—but I’ve never been thrown into anything as terrifying as this. I stayed up too late reading this. A Million Worlds With You is a vast improvement over Ten Thousand Skies Above You already; it doesn’t drag, and the way it ties all the dimensions together is great. You know how in YA novels sometimes you end up rolling your eyes because no one even thinks to just ask an adult? Well, Marguerite’s parents are fantastic in […]

Things I Love Thursday | Tropes

Things I Love Thursday | Tropes

It’s been a while since I’ve seen this around, but way back in the day when I was on my expat blog kick (my adventures as an expat were nothing interesting to write about, but everyone else’s were fun) I used to see this a lot. The blog I saw it on the most isn’t active any longer, but they generally used it for positive things that had happened in their life recently, and a reminder that there were lots […]

Review | Ten Thousand Skies Above You

Review | Ten Thousand Skies Above You

There are cliffhangers galore in this series, I swear. Ten Thousand Skies Above You drops you straight into the action after A Thousand Pieces of You, but I couldn’t help but feel like it was missing something. This book confronts many of the questions I wish had been mentioned at least slightly in the first novel. The idea of splintering was something that would have been a great thing to bring up in the first novel as well as another reason for […]

Shiro to Kuro no Alice | Rain

Shiro to Kuro no Alice | Rain

There are spoilers ahead, but they’re hidden unless you click on them.  And then there’s this asshole. Remember how I said that Snow was boring? Well, Rain’s even worse. It took me so long to finish his route which is annoying because it could have been pretty interesting. Oh well. Airi is brought from the White World to replace Luna who was taken there instead. Rain tells her that she’s to be the new Queen until the unrest in the Black […]

Review | Our Dark Duet

Review | Our Dark Duet

That’s okay, I didn’t need my heart anyway. Seriously, just take it. Seems like I’m rating everything four stars or higher these days, and Our Dark Duet is no exception. I’m still in love with Kate and August, and I was really looking forward to seeing what happened next for them after This Savage Song. I expected pain, and I was not disappointed. If Verity’s sins were knives, quick and vicious, then Prosperity’s were poison. Slow, insidious, but just as deadly. […]

Shiro to Kuro no Alice | Snow

Shiro to Kuro no Alice | Snow

There are spoilers ahead, but they’re hidden unless you click on them. It’s kind of awkward when you go into a route not expecting much, and then leave it shipping a polyamorous relationship. Whoops. After, unintentionally, sentencing a gardener to death, there’s talk of taking Luna to the White World to calm the effect her blood (Alice) is having on the Black World. When the gardener ends up killed in the middle of the night, she’s whisked away by Snow […]

Review | A Thousand Pieces of You

Review | A Thousand Pieces of You

This is a reread and I adore it just as much the second time. I like most fiction that deals with alternate realities or parallel dimensions in theory, never so much in practice. Perhaps it’s the part where people end up in a universe where they don’t exist, and they find out how much they’re needed in their original universe and go back feeling better about themselves. It’s boring. Thankfully, the book mostly avoids this. Because, here’s the best part: you […]

Shiro to Kuro no Alice | Nello

Shiro to Kuro no Alice | Nello

There are spoilers ahead, but they’re hidden unless you click on them. In a shocking twist, warning someone that you might be a bad person does not actually excuse you from being a bad person. I kind of hate happy go lucky characters in otome games sometimes because ninety percent of the time their past is going to be awful, and Nello’s is no exception. It beat me up, stole my lunch money, and spread rumours that I cried. Like […]

Review | This Savage Song

Review | This Savage Song

There are a lot of times to hate switching points of view; This Savage Song is not one of them. Both Kate and August are interesting characters with different and similar ambitions. In the end, it’s about living how they like. This book was an easy read, and I couldn’t put it down. Even when Kate and August weren’t interacting, the differences in the ways they thought and their experiences kept me reading, and I was interested in seeing the tension […]
