(REVIEW) Eragon ~ Christopher Paolini (The Inheritance Cycle #1)

Rating: 4 stars Reread with my IRL friend! Oh man, this was such a nostalgia trip! I first read this book in the 6th grade, and proceeded to read a book in this series every year following, except for 8th grade where I read both Brisingr and Inheritance. I had memorized where in the book […]

(REVIEW) Binti ~ Nnedi Okorafor (Binti #1)

Rating: 3 stars Buddy read with Nana This gave me flashbacks to a college class I took in high school about popular literature, where the focus of that quarter was science fiction. There was an unexpected emphasis on afrofuturism and I feel like my hippie teacher would have loved Binti. I didn’t really love it […]

(REVIEW) A Throne for Sisters ~ Morgan Rice (A Throne for Sisters #1)

Rating: 1 star I buddy read this with Nana and Aless. Oh boy. I thought my expectations were low, but I guess this managed to get even lower than I thought. I know Morgan Rice’s writing is bad. All of her books that I’ve read so far have felt like a very rough first draft […]

(REVIEW) The Phantom of the Opera ~ Gaston Leroux

Rating: 3 stars I received this digital review copy from Poisoned Pen Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. Buddy read with Nana but she DNF’d it lol ¯_(ツ)_/¯ I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while, as the […]

(REVIEW) The Hunchback of Notre Dame ~ Victor Hugo

Rating: 4 stars Is it bad I kinda like the Disney adaptation more? I buddy read this with Nana, though it was a reread for her. The Writing I really don’t understand why I’m perpetually surprised when classics read like regular books. Maybe it’s simply because they’ve been lauded and put up on this pedestal, […]

(REVIEW) The Graveyard Book ~ Neil Gaiman (PLUS the comic edition)

Rating: 4 stars (comic rating: 3 stars) Buddy read with Nana the Novelty! “You’re always you, and that don’t change, and you’re always changing, and there’s nothing you can do about it.” So, it took me a really long time to read this, for no reason other than that I’ve been in a slump these […]

(REVIEW) The Awakening ~ L.J. Smith (The Vampire Diaries #1)

Rating: 3 stars Buddy read with Devanshi! Ok. Anyone who knows me knows that I love two things: Peter Pan and vampires (not necessarily together, but can you imagine!!??) So it comes as no surprise that I love The Vampire Diaries television show. I’ve been a big fan since I was about 12 or so […]

(REVIEW) Cruel Beauty ~ Rosamund Hodge

Rating: 4 stars (Original rating: 5 stars) Buddy read this reread with Nana and sort of accidentally binged it again ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Honestly, my opinion remains almost entirely the same, except that I found this infinitely more redundant this time, hence the lower star rating. Like, it irked me an irrational amount every time “Hermetic” was said and […]
