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

Bitten by Kelley Armstrong – a review by Luke

A while ago, I finished reading all the books in the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. While I liked each of them, I enjoyed some more than I did others. But my absolute favourite entries were the ones that followed Elena Michaels. She was the main character in the first book, Bitten, as well as the second (Stolen), sixth… Continue reading Bitten by Kelley Armstrong – a review by Luke

The Jane Austen Guide to Happily Ever After by Elizabeth Kantor – a review by Melissa

Jane Austen didn’t have to juggle a job, a company, a blog, several social media accounts, family, friends, church and a dog. However, I’d rather have these things than be cast in the role of an 18th Century writer who had to sneak in writing time around family commitments. She did juggle a fantastic cast… Continue reading The Jane Austen Guide to Happily Ever After by Elizabeth Kantor – a review by Melissa

Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern – a review by Luke

I have read a few Cecelia Ahern books: P.S. I Love You, How to Fall in Love, If You Could See Me Now, and Flawed. While I enjoyed each of them, my favourite remains to be the first book of hers that I read: Where Rainbows End—or, for those of you who live in the U.S., Love, Rosie.  The story follows the… Continue reading Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern – a review by Luke

The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton – a review by Melissa

It’s rare to be continually blown away by the quality of writing of an author. From the moment I met my first Morton book, I have been a big fan. It’s been a while since I read The Distant Hours and then devoured every other one of her books. The Secret Keeper, in keeping with… Continue reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton – a review by Melissa

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger – a review by Melissa

Rereading favourite books can bring pleasure. But when there's an element of tragedy in said book, it's exquisite torture. After devouring the last book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series (which I adored) and the two newest Jennifer L. Armentrout books in quick succession (Fire in You and The Struggle), I was in need… Continue reading The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger – a review by Melissa

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas – a review

The Throne of Glass series entered my life last year, and it introduced me to one of my favourite authors right now, Sarah J. Maas. Before it, I wasn't the biggest fan of high fantasy and just stuck to urban fantasy. What inspired me to check this series out was because fellow people on this group for… Continue reading The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas – a review
