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

I was given this book in return for an honest review.  I'm no stranger to sleep struggles as I have suffered from insomnia for over a decade. 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

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

Melissa’s Round Up #3

I fell down the rabbit hole of my new favourite genre, or rather the name of a genre of books I've been devouring - Fantasy Romance. I will be writing a post about it when I have read enough books to recommend (I'm looking for books comparable to A Court of Thorns and Roses and… Continue reading Melissa’s Round Up #3

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. Armentrout – a review by Melissa

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

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season One – a review by Luke

In celebration of twenty years of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I will review each of the seven seasons. Being one of my favourite series of all time—if not my absolute favourite—I am excited to write about it! It seems appropriate to start with this line: “Welcome to the Hellmouth!” Here, I will review the first… Continue reading Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season One – a review by Luke

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult – a review by Melissa

I would follow Picoult anywhere, not literally, of course, but imaginatively. We have been to a school shooting, death row, a wolf pack in the wild, Nazi Germany - and she never lets me down. I wouldn’t ordinarily read about these things, but I know that in Picoult’s hands the subject matter will be dealt… Continue reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult – a review by Melissa

Don’t Let Me Go by J.H. Trumble – a review by Luke

(Disclaimer: The f-bomb—you know, the one that rhymes with duck—is present at some point in this review.) Plot It's been eight months since Nate and Adam started their relationship. But when Adam accepts a job opportunity all the way in New York, they face one of the toughest obstacles: distance. Through Skype calls, Nate catches glimpses of Adam's shirtless… Continue reading Don’t Let Me Go by J.H. Trumble – a review by Luke
