The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness | Book Review

So far, this is my lowest rated book of 2018 but I actually quite enjoyed this, it just wasn't as good as it could have been. In some ways, it gripped me right away and in others... it took a while. For those of you who don't know, the Rest of Us Just Live Here has ...

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli | Book Review [Spoiler Free]

This is spoiler free HOWEVER there is a spoiler right at the end (which is indicated). I have to admit, this one slipped under my radar for far too long. Funnily enough, I've seen the cover for the Upside of Unrequited everywhere but I never knew, until recently, that it was written by Becky Albertalli ...

Usually, ...

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness | Book Review [Spoiler Free]

A Monster Calls follows a young boy named Conor who is visited several times by a monster, only it's not the monster he expects, the one from his nightmares. This monster is different and it wants the truth. I won't tell you much more than that, the book is only just over 200 pages (the edition ...
