Land of Hidden Fires – Kirk Kjeldsen

Rating: 5/10 Review: I have really high expectations for war novels. Since my first ever war book, Schindler's Ark, I have steadily become more and more disappointed in the niche. My theory is that people become sloppy. They do their research about the amazing events, scenery and people that are in involved. They blow everyones … Continue reading Land of Hidden Fires – Kirk Kjeldsen


The Palace of Curiosities – Rosie Garland

Rating: 8/10 Review:  This was a welcome breath of relief from the previous book I read. This relatively short novel felt easy and quick which was exactly what I was hoping it would be.  Eve is born with the heart and the looks of a lion. She is kept away from the public by her … Continue reading The Palace of Curiosities – Rosie Garland

The Evening Chorus – Helen Humphreys

Rating: 6.5/10 Review:  When I'm commuting into work each day, usually my nose is stuffed into a book or my head is tilted down at a tiny smart phone screen. Some days though, I'm just not in the mood to absorb any more information. On those days, I just sit and stare out the window. … Continue reading The Evening Chorus – Helen Humphreys


The Girl On The Train – Paula Hawkins

Rating: 6.5/10 Review:  Writing this review is a great distraction from the extremely loud conversation happening outside my apartment window. "She loves you. She does not love him. She told me that she is exhausted and that she is tired and that she needs help and I've been...."  Ah love... so passionate... so fiery so... LOUD. And … Continue reading The Girl On The Train – Paula Hawkins


I Will Not Finish This Book

Last night, I had a conversation with a friend that really opened my eyes. She loves books. She has an incredibly neat and well arranged bookcase that she is immensely proud of. In her house, no book goes unloved. So you can imagine my shock when I found out that she had thrown a book in the … Continue reading I Will Not Finish This Book


Room – Emma Donoghue

Rating: 7.5/5 Review: I love seeing the weird and wacky parts of life. I love reading about things that I will never (hopefully never) experience. I love looking through the eyes of horrible, deranged people and going along for the rollercoaster ride that are their thoughts. However, I've never read from the perspective of such … Continue reading Room – Emma Donoghue
