Review: City of Bones [The Mortal Instruments #1] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy , Romance / May 22, 2018

Review: The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare is one of my favorite series I’ve read in the past few years. It is a teenage drama mixed with a lot of magic, action, witty remarks and unrealistically attractive teenagers 😀 I can see why it appealed to me then and I kind of still think it’s awesome. A bit childish at times, but the story is interesting and the characters are exciting.

City of Bones, the first book of the series, follows Clarissa Fray, a normal teenage girl who finds herself at the wrong place at the wrong time – or maybe the right place at the right time? She becomes a witness to an unusual murder performed by a few weird people covered in weird tattoos.

Review: Speaker for the Dead [Ender Series #2] 5/5 (1)
All , Sci-Fi / May 17, 2018

Review: When I finished the second book of the Ender series, Speaker for the Dead, by Orson Scott Card I was super excited about writing the review. It’s been a long time since a book enchanted me this way – and not by cool action, smart-ass characters or otherworldly magic or creatures. Instead, it was the calm, truthful and extremely powerful themes and questions which Orson Scott Card brought up within the book that took me on a journey that left me breathless. So here I am, writing a review that probably won’t do the book much justice.

Review: Magic Rises [Kate Daniels #6] 5/5 (1)
All , Fantasy / May 11, 2018

Review: I am not sure why it took me this long to write this review. I devoured the first six books like Winnie The Pooh a pot with honey but then I hit a ditch. Now finally, I crawled out of the ditch 😀 So let’s focus on the beautiful 6th book of the Kate Daniels series, Magic Rises, by Ilona Andrews.

The story this time moves to a new location, Georgia, Europe, where Kate and Curran are invited to settle a dispute for a pregnant lady and three rivaling packs. The author’s humor shows in everything she does – the pregnant shifter is expecting twins and each of them is from a different man part of the two of the rivaling packs.

Review: Ender’s Game [Ender Series #1] 5/5 (1)
All , Sci-Fi / May 10, 2018

Review: I ought to start by saying that I am not that much of a Sci-Fi reader, or at least I’ve never given the genre a proper chance. Apart from Star Wars, Stargate and the Startrek movies I’ve never watched/read an interesting sci-fi story. Until now. Ender’s Game, the first book of the quartet, by Orson Scott Card is indeed a marvelous adventure full of action, beautiful prose and deep, complicated themes about human nature that stay with you long after you’ve put the book down.

The story revolves around three exceptional siblings – Ender, Valentine and Peter.
