The Mindful Way to a Good Night’s Sleep by Tzivia Gover – a review by Melissa

I have a carefully selected set of things I must do each night to attempt to get enough sleep. 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

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

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

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

If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout – a review by Melissa

It's pretty much a given, at this point, that when Jennifer L. Armentrout releases a book, I'll love it. With the exception of the thrillers, murder and gore - they are not my cup of tea. Contemporary young adult is not usually my favourite genre, but in her book The Problem with Forever, I really enjoyed… Continue reading If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L.

Saving Mr Banks directed by John Lee Hancock – a review by Melissa

Mary Poppins is my favourite childhood character. For a few years, I wanted to be her when I grew up. After that, I just wanted to play her if I ever had to play a lead role in a movie. So, when I saw there was a movie about the author and how the Mary… Continue reading Saving Mr Banks directed by John Lee Hancock – a review by Melissa
