Review “Rumblestar”

There are these particular books that give you this high. That special feeling like something is falling into place, clicking. It glues you to the page, makes you reckless in wanting to finish it. You know you should write that report, that essay, finish that task and your supervisor/teacher/boss is looming just over there but […]

Review “Stalking Jack the Ripper”

The book was all over Instagram and the premise sounded incredibly thrilling. Just the right thing for me. I also ended up doing a buddy read with a friend which made this book even more appealing. But in the end… Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and […]

This book was warmly, vigorously and insistently recommended to me. And because I love Middlegrade books and also because I actually saw that they had a signed copy at Owlcrate I just really had to take the opportunity to add this book to my collection.

Aren’t you happy that things like the World Book Day exist? I sure am or maybe this little book, Everdark, would have never seen the light of day. It is midnight in Crackledawn – a midnight full of magic. Sea dragons stir in the depths of the ocean, silver whales surface beneath the moon and […]

I think the animated movie by Studio Ghibli based on this book is rather famous and popular.

It hasn’t been that long that I have discovered Science Fiction for me. A few years, three or four at most.
