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. […]

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 […]

Review ♦︎ Falling Kingdoms

Review ♦︎ Falling Kingdoms

I feel like this review is going to be hard to write. This book isn’t amazing, and it has some issues with worldbuilding and characterisation, but I enjoyed it. Or, well, parts of it anyway. Mytica is made up of three kingdoms, and they all sound the same. Sure, they’re described differently—the bountiful one, the poor one, the strict and religious one—but they all talk the same ways. There’s no slang, there aren’t many references to […]

Review ♦︎ Otaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii Vol. 1-4

Review ♦︎ Otaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii Vol. 1-4

Narumi and Hirotaka start dating out of convenience; they’re both otaku, they’re both single, and they both enjoy each other’s company. It’s a great idea, and it works well for them. It’s almost as if they’re not dating. Narumi is adorable and a bit of an all-rounder otaku (games, manga, idols, etc); her main interests are shoujo manga and BL. Hirotaka is dead-set on games, he’ll give other things a chance if you recommend them, but he’s […]

Review ♦︎ Dating You / Hating You

Review ♦︎ Dating You / Hating You

I slump my shoulders in mock defeat. “But that’s in married territory.” “We don’t have tickets to that side of the room,” Carter adds. Give me these awkward nerds or give me death! Dating You / Hating You switches points of view between Evie and Carter each chapter, and both of them are complete messes of awkward and very entertaining. Evie, or Evil as Carter calls her, is in her thirties, married to her work, […]

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, […]
