Star-crossed love: The Time Traveller’s Wife

18619684

I’m not going to summarise the story, plenty of other reviews fill their spaces with that. I prefer to share a few thoughts that I have about it. This is a very bitter-sweet story that at times (especially when the foreshadowing occurs, which it basically does all the time) can Read more →

“Sunshine” by Robin McKinley

sunshine

Robin McKinley’s “Sunshine” is Not Your Ordinary Vampire Tale Finally a stand-alone novel that encompasses vampires that are not angsty teenagers that sparkle! It’s gritty, it’s (somewhat) gory and it tends to put the vampires back in the monster and horror department as it should be! It’s nice to see Read more →

“The Show” by John A. Heldt

1421990

I just finished reading Jeaniene Frost‘s Halfway to the Grave. It ended up on my book shelves after I requested recommendations of good non-YA Urban Fantasy (UF) novels, after having had my fill with the mediocre Twilight and The Awakening and The Struggle, that for some reason also pass as Read more →

“To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee

to kill a mocking bird

Today I finished reading the classic To Kill a Mockingbird and I’m glad that I finally got around to reading it. This classic story gives you a good glimpse of the racial stigma and inequalities of the 1930′s USA, stigma and inequalities that to this date still, to some extent, Read more →
