ARC Review: The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories by Ken Liu


The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories has jumped to the top of my list of favourite short stories collection. It’s introspective, experimental, and give the speculative genre a healthy dose of Chinese lore and mythology. Each story is fascinating, a surprise as I often find there’s a couple of duds in every collection. I savoured […]

Review: Dreamwalker by C.S. Friedman


I do admit that I am a bit of a cover snob. I know that we should not judge a book by its cover (well, figuratively at least), but when it comes to novels, I do believe that first impressions are important to grab a reader’s attention. When I first saw Dreamwalkers’ cover, I was […]

ARC Review: We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

We are the ants

Review: Legend: The Graphic Novel by Marie Lu


overview If you’ve already read and loved Legend, definitely pick up a copy of the graphic novel! It’ll be enough to bring back your feels and memories. If not, skip it. There isn’t enough details for you to get a complete Legend experience. No, seriously. I’m a HUGE fan of Legend, and I legitimately got […]

ARC Review: Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley


If you’re going to ask me to describe Magonia in one word, that word would be charming. It was elegant, magical and absolutely captivating. Reading this book was like floating on a magical, puffy, pink cloud. While eating fairy dust and watching shooting stars. That’s how alluring this book was. The only other time I’ve […]

ARC Review: The World Forgot by Martin Leicht

The World Forgot

It seems that none of the books in this series ever really blew my mind but I will say that this one was a worthy conclusion to the series. I felt a little sad after finishing the book because it was kind of like saying goodbye to that nice co-worker who you were never really close […]
