The Literary World Needs Negative Reviews!
But at what point does negative intersect with honesty? Does only living in a positive bubble of good reviews actually help the author and the book community at large?
Book Review: Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune
Though this is what I could call a “comfort book” and I knew everything would work out in the end, I still felt very much compelled to read on and on. I laughed and I cried in equal measure.
Book Review: Before Green Gables
In general, this is a nice book and I’m happy that Anne continues to be such an important character. But it certainly didn’t feel like Anne most of the time, which is a shame. Most of the time it felt like someone writing a very nice fan-fiction, but they didn’t actually know the books that well.

Book Review: A Discovery of Witches
Disclaimer: I don’t write these fancy long book reviews for books that I didn’t love or had a big impact on me, but this book did have an impact on me. This book was the pinnacle of untapped potential. It had a great premise, but so much was left untouched. Anyway, I’ll get to thatContinue reading “Book Review: A Discovery of Witches”
2018: A Year.
It’s easy to get caught up in all the things one wanted to do in the space of 12 months, but it’s important to instead focus on one’s accomplishments (big or small).
