Book Review: Emma Donoghue's Reflective Novel, The Pull of The Stars

Historical Fiction has been a real hit or miss for me lately. So far, I haven’t been disappointed. Not only did the beautiful cover of this pull me in, but the blurb and author! Who doesn’t love Emma Donoghue? It took me a while to read, but I enjoyed every minute of it!

Book Review: My first 5-star retelling goes to The Storyteller's Daughter!

Where to start with such a wonderful retelling of Rumpelstiltskin? It takes me a while to find an engaging retelling, but lately, I’ve been lucky and enjoyed the ones I’ve come across. This one, however, I loved way more than I thought I would! It was such a story of its own that at some point I forgot McCombs inspired it from a classic. Note: This review may contain spoilers. His shadowed face lit by flames, Rumpelstiltskin is my name... For as long as anyone can remember, every child in Westfallen has been born with a Gift, and these Gifts defined them. Then Cosette is born, Giftless. An attempt to hide her misfortune brings her before the King, who entraps her to use her Gift as a pawn in

Book Review: Arms of the Ocean has a beautiful world building

An alluring YA fantasy that not only pulled me in because of the wonderful book cover but the blurb too. Another thing that made me admire this book was to see that it originated from Wattpad. I love to see Wattpad books blossom. Nineteen-year-old Tristaine lived a life of bitterness. When her mother abandoned her family, and her father began drinking, Tris discovered the only thing that truly brought her happiness: the sea. It called to her like a lover and flowed through her like a life force. When her only peace is threatened to be taken away, Tris realizes there is nothing she wouldn't do to remain with the ocean. Even if it means taking her own life to do so. But the sea isn't done with
