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.

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

A Truth Universally Acknowledged: 33 Writers on Why We Read Jane Austen, edited by Susannah Carson This was slow reading for me. Not because I… Continue reading Melissa’s Reading Round Up
