I’m a huge fan of V.E.Schwab even though I’ve only read the first book of this series. The review of which you can find here. Nevertheless, this review is definitely SPOILER FREE!

Please make me read these 10 books before (I die) 2018

Hello people! I come to you today, trying to make some sense of my ridiculously numbered (over 1100) TBR on Goodreads. God help me.

*sounds of perpetual screaming*

I know a lot of us have the problem of excessively adding to our TBR but believe me mine is worse. 1100(+) + the books I keep buying for some reason. And I hardly ever read physical books! (I read on eBook, maybe will do a post on that?) Yet, books are the only thing my mind justifies buying (with my money, other peoples money is for other trash). I’m not sure if my brain knows logic.

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie [Soon to be released as a movie]

I read this book a while ago but considering how a movie will be based on it soon, I thought it was high time that I post my review on it.

“The murderer is with us – on the train now…”

Mini Comic/Graphic Novel Review #2

It’s been a LONG while since I’ve reviewed some of the Graphic Novels I’ve read. And unfortunately I haven’t read that many this year but here’s a short list of the three I have read.

#1 Username Evie by Joe Sugg

I’m sure 95% of you are aware of who Joe Sugg is but for those who aren’t- he is a youtuber and like every other youtuber he too has written a book. I’m giggling because anyone who’s followed us long enough can probably hear the rant coming.

So today we will be sharing with you guys 5 of our favourite books that we read because we saw someone else raving about it.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab [Yes, I finally read a recently released book]

If you know us then you know that we have a history of disliking popular books a LOT. So when I buddy read this with @Bookedbybliss and Melody (our friend/author on Instagram @melodyjacksonauthor), I was pretty sure I was going to DNF it or read the first book, write a review about how much I hated it and then never read the series again.

But what did happen was that I fell into one of Kell’s jackets deep pockets, never to be found again. This book, you guys, WAS BEAUTIFUL! From the first line, “Kell wore a very peculiar coat.” to the last line, “That one’ll do.” I was trapped within each line and each word. It was every bookworm’s heaven. A novel that wouldn’t let go of you!

Esper Files: The Sky Cult by Egan Brass [Steampunk + X-men]

After reading the first book Esper Files, I was so fascinated by the idea and the plot of this book that I just couldn’t wait to read Book 2 and once I got my hands on it, I finished it real quick BUT as always, life got in the way and I’m only now getting to posting its review.

This book starts off exactly where the first one left off. I don’t want to give out a lot of spoilers by explaining the plot but I’ll try to explain as much as possible by being as vague as possible. So, this review is spoiler-free.

The Guns Above by Robyn Bennis [Read to discover a steampunk badass]

The second steampunk novel I’ve read this year and I was NOT disappointed.

The plot: In Robyn Bennis’ The Guns Above, Josette Dupre, our badass protagonist has been made the Corps’ first female airship captain, after she turned the tide against the enemy in a battle.

For Josette, it means a death sentence but a happy one because she finally gets to live her dreams as captain of an airship, but she is also aware of how far some would go to overthrow her. Like Lord Bernat, who was set up by his Uncle to find and record all the negatives of Josette, so that Bernat can get his money and the Uncle would get to see Josette fall.
