No Exit by Taylor Adams | Book Review

It’s by no means perfect but No Exit is still a decent thriller that’s worth the time picking up. It’s fast-paced which makes for a fairly quick reading experience and despite the odd hiccup here and there, it’s almost entirely a constant push forward.

The story follows Darby who is forced to take refuge at a rest stop during a blizzard along with four strangers. While there, she discovers evidence of a kidnapped child and has to figure out what to do and who might be involved.

Bridgerton Season 2 Review

This post has potential, minor SPOILERS.

Admittedly, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like season 2 of Bridgerton going into it. This is because I never felt any particular way towards Anthony (the eldest Bridgerton sibling whom this season follows). I was, however, happy to find that I enjoyed this season quite a bit and honestly, I probably enjoyed it as equally as the first.

Here’s the thing with Bridgerton. It’s not going to be for everyone and I would argue is not the kind of show you go into for anything other than a good time.

In particular, I really enjoyed the way it looks and sounds. For the most part, it manages to keep a strong aesthetic (and feeling) throughout even if it does waver here and there.

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata | Book Review

Convenience Store Woman is one of those books that seemed to be everywhere and I had, luckily, only heard good things about it. For me, those good things panned out and I ended up really loving this book!

Clarice Season 1 Review [Spoiler Free]

The first season of Clarice is a promising start. It manages to use what has been set up by 1991 The Silence of the Lambs movie while also doing its own thing which helps it to fit in with this universe without feeling repetitive. At no point does it feel like the movie is being erased or completely rewritten which makes this show even more enjoyable.
