I've done a lot of reading in this area,… Continue reading The Mindful Way to a Good Night’s Sleep by Tzivia Gover – a review by Melissa

Fantasy Romance: What to Read if You Have a Maas Hangover

I have found a new genre, or rather a name for a genre I have been enjoying for a while. After devouring Sarah J. Maas' Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series, I was desperate for something else to read. Something that would draw me in, create an entire world and… Continue reading Fantasy Romance: What to Read if You Have a Maas Hangover

Reputation, Taylor Swift – a review by Luke

It has finally dropped: Taylor Swift’s sixth album, Reputation. Here, I want to share my thoughts on it. ...Ready For It? opens the album on a strong note. It’s energetic; it’s bold; and it’s playful. And there’s so much variety: the verses, when Taylor raps, and the chorus, which is dreamy—and sounds like the Taylor… Continue reading Reputation, Taylor Swift – a review by Luke

The Tairen Soul Series by C. L. Wilson – a review by Melissa

The world is flawless; the characters are well rounded and I fell in love with several of them; and the writing is strong.

Tell Me You Love Me, Demi Lovato – a review by Luke

During the time of writing—and rewriting—this review, Demi Lovato's sixth album, Tell Me You Love Me, has just been released. I feel like I have waited in anticipation for so long. And I have: almost two years of waiting for its announcement, then a few months for its release. Now it's here—now it's mine—and I've listened… Continue reading Tell Me You Love Me, Demi Lovato – a review by Luke

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare – a review by Melissa

(Note: This review is spoiler-free!) I think I'm still unwinding all of the complexities of what I read in Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. The latest installment of the Shadowhunters series was thoroughly enjoyable. This is the second book in the third trilogy.* Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn are a powerful parabatai team (think: the new… Continue reading Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare – a review by Melissa
