2.5 Million Delayed Reviews ~ #JNGReads

  Hi Everyone! This might be a bit of a boring post, as it’s going to be a collection of reviews that I recently posted on Goodreads. I’ve read quite a few books lately, but didn’t feel the urge at the time of finishing them to sit down and write reviews. The other day, though,Continue reading “2.5 Million Delayed Reviews ~ #JNGReads”

Stalking Jack the Ripper ~ #JNGReads

No one is more disappointed in this book, or in my reaction to it, than I am. I desperately wanted to love Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco, and really I should have. It is the exact sort of historical fiction novel that would normally be right up my alley: a look at VictorianContinue reading “Stalking Jack the Ripper ~ #JNGReads”

A Thousand Pieces of You

I’ve finished reading my most recent foray into the Young Adult genre, A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. Let me start by saying what so many other readers have said before… The cover of this novel is gorgeous! The artistic, almost watercolour depiction of 2 cities merged is truly unique and mesmerizing.

Sure, in the contextContinue reading “Two…or More…just Many – #JNGReads”

How to Dress Like a Vampire

It’s Thursday everybody!  Do you know what this means?  The Vampire Diaries is on tonight, and the end of the week just got a whole lot brighter! Okay, I should qualify that last statement by explaining that I’ve been watching the TV show The Vampire Diaries since it came out ages ago…I’m pretty sure IContinue reading “How to Dress Like a Vampire”

Doctor Monster

In today’s pre-Halloween post, I’ll be talking about the terrifying, horrifying, nerve-wracking, stomach-clenching novel Frankenstein. Not. Mary Shelley’s classic novel is actually none of these things – it’s barely a horror novel, in my opinion, and as for it being a work of science-fiction…not very much actual science is described in the course of theContinue reading “Doctor Monster”
