Pet Sematary

The upcoming (now probably released) movie made want to read it before I see it. Also, I found the whole idea conveyed in the books descriptions/movie trailer, of children creating a burial place for their pets and naming it so intriguing borderline creepy. [Beware, spoilers ahead] Unfortunately, this book wasn’t at all what I expected. […]

Winternight Trilogy

or why Russian fairytales are the best

#1 The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden [Beware, spoilers ahead.] Book-wise, this year hasn’t started at all on the right foot. My Goodreads is full of 3 stars ratings and even some 2 stars have been thrown out there. The streak of average books has been broken when I began the Winternight trilogy. […]

Acceptance

the stranger the better

Sometimes failing and succeeding are different facets of the same coin, and whether you accept one or the other, the result is the same. Or more like, how many of us can actually see and acknowledge the very thin line between giving up, accepting failure, and moving forward and accepting the burden? How many of […]

or how you're never actually in control

Given the upcoming release (now obviously belated, because I’m lazy I guess) of the Annihilation movie, I’ve been on a spree… reading the whole trilogy. Mostly because my intuition told me that the movie is going to take a little bit of information from all three of them (partially right, 10 points to Ravenclaw!), but […]

for when you need to level up your weirdness

Ladies and gentlemen, today’s book-hangover: Annihilation (Southern Reach #1) by Jeff VanderMeer. I must tell you right off the bat… this is the kind of book you constantly rub your chin through while wanting to call your book-worm friends and ask them what the hell is this and what the hell is that and what […]

or how to heal with stories

This little book (which is honestly a treasure) was a birthday present from my dearest M. Not sure if it was intended as a lesson or just as a reminder of all those things we should be grateful for, but I’m pretty sure I spotted this one on her books-that-made-me-cry shelf and it would definitely […]

Howdy! (not so) Funny story actually. This book has been sitting in my to-be-read pile for quite a while now, two years to be more precise. I bought this in the summer of 2015 for my birthday and I swear I’ve been meaning to read it ever since but somehow never had the time. Fortunately […]

Book title: A Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle #1) Author: Ursula K. Le Guin Winter is already upon us and what better time than this to curl up under your fuzzy blankets and read as much as possible? You can of course add a cup of warm tea or hot chocolate in order to make […]

Book title: The Calling (Endgame #1) Author:  James Frey, Nils Johnson-Shelton Hello again! This review is about a book that I read recently, this summer, a book I wanted to read for a very long time, firstly because one of my very good friends (and reading companion) was reading it some time ago and she […]
