Hai Beautiful! I think we hyped it up too much… If you have read the Illuminae Files series (Illuminae, Gemina and Obsidio) in the past two or so years; a.k.a. since the release of Obsidio, you’d know about Memento, the companion novella that only a few readers were able to get their hands on. Finally, after begging and begging and begging and more begging from fans of the series, Jay and Amie were able to officially release the once exclusive novella as an […]Continue Reading
TrueLife By Jay Kristoff | Spoiler Book Review
Hai Beautiful! Why did I choose this book to read during NaNoWriMo? TrueLife was everything I expected (and more) from the last book in a very action-packed, heart-shattering series! Goodreads Summary Best friends have become enemies. Lovers have become strangers. And deciding whose side you’re on could be the difference between life and death. For Eve and Lemon, discovering the truth about themselves–and each other–was too much for their friendship to take. But with the country on the brink of […]Continue Reading
Aurora Burning by Amy Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review
Hai Beautiful! This one fell slightly short… I’m not gonna lie, I will purchase and read anything written by Amie or Jay either individually or as a collaborative duo. So even though Aurora Rising, didn’t live up to my expectations set by the Illuminae Files, there was something unique and carefree to the story that I loved it all the same. Blurb: Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in […]Continue Reading
June TBR, but give me bisexual main characters!
Hai Beautiful! Fu*k, it’s already June! Another half a year almost gone and for once in my life, I’m not surprised. I think quarantine has gone to my head and convinced me that time has moved quicker because I pulled my diary out and realised I hadn’t actually been locked inside that long. TWO BOOK TBR! This month, I want to honour Pride but also catch up with some series that I’ve been putting off. Both of these series […]Continue Reading

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review
Heyo Bookaholics! I still can’t believe I’ve finished this book… I don’t know how to review this. Godsgrave is such a novel that you have to just devour and take in with everything you have. Anything Jay Kristoff writes is beautiful, dangerous and so utterly addictive. Blurb: Assassin Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade […]Continue Reading
Succumbing to Peer Pressure (The Good Kind).
Heyo Bookaholics! Just the push I needed… Here’s the thing… I started Godsgrave but never finished it, putting it down at about one-third of the way in. Godsgrave is the sequel to and second book in the Nevernight series. It is an adult novel written by Jay Kristoff, an Australian author also known for his collaborative work in writing the best-selling Illuminae Files with fellow Aussie, Amie Kaufman. The Nevernight series is a beefy one with a shit-ton of world-building, […]Continue Reading

Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman | Semi-Spoiler Book Review
Heyo Bookaholics! It’s Space Time. Again! It’s space time again, and that means I’ve read another Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman co-authored novel! Aurora Rising is the first novel in the Aurora Cycle Series and is once again full of amazingly unique characters, family bonds between siblings and friends, and uber cool space stuff that is so reminiscent of any of their works. I was going to put this novel on hold to read the entire 7 books on my Rainbow TBR […]Continue Reading
