A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

It’s 2am and I need to be up and about in less than 5 hours. I haven’t slept, and I need to drive in a sleep deprived state soon. Is it all worth it just to finish a novel? If we’re talking about A Darker Shade of Magic, then yes, it’s a million times worth…

The Fireman by Joe Hill

I just realized that it took me almost a month to finish this novel. I read the whole ASOIF series in a span of about 25 days, meaning about 5 days each for a 1000+ page novel. This novel is only 700+ pages long but I didn’t finish it soon enough. I can blame my…

Emperor of Thorns by Mark Lawrence

This novel helped me reach a new milestone in my life, and that is to enjoy listening to audiobooks. I’ve written several reviews of how much I hated audiobooks, but I believe James Clamp helped me realize how amazing audiobooks are. Add in the fact that this is an amazing novel with a terrific plot…

The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin

Another short story that I didn’t enjoy that much. Nothing new, it’s probably all on me again. This middle grade novel tells a story about Adara and her struggles, or at least, the struggles of people around her. Every winter, the ice dragon comes to the place she lives in. Lucky for her, winter is…

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

I got an arc from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Most of my friends here know that I dislike reading most YA books. I find most of them shallow and repetitive, but the premise of This Savage Song made me want to give the genre another chance. I’m glad that I did, because…

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

After 6 months, I’ve finally found a novel worthy of 5 stars. It took me that long to finally get out of the dreaded reading slump. It should’ve been obvious though, because one of the options to get out of the slump is to go back to your roots. My roots being Fantasy. I shouldn’t…

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin

I’m not fond of novellas or short stories. I always end up hating them because of the length. It’s like someone telling you a summarized version of a detailed story. This one on the other hand is one of the exceptions to the hatred. It’s not a shock though that Martin can make me enjoy…

Saga Vol. 5 by Brian K. Vaughan

I honestly don’t know how this series will get better in the future. Volume 2-3 for me were the peak of the series, and volume 4 slightly resulted to decline. This fifth volume was not that bad, because it brought out an even more weird side to the series. What’s running inside my head though…

The Shadow of Elysium by Django Wexler

It’s no secret how much I enjoyed the first two books of The Shadow Campaigns series, so when I saw this up for grabs on netgalley, I had to click request. Gladly I got accepted, but it took me weeks before I finally read this. This novella didn’t have any of the main characters of…

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

This was a pain to read, to be honest. If not for some parts in the middle, and the last few chapters, I would’ve rated this 2 stars. The first chapters were very slow and dull. Nothing made me want to go on. If not for some people who asked me to continue on and…
