Ah, we all know those two books(that shall not be named because noPE) coming out this month and that’s what it seems everyone is talking about. They actually make it seem like it’s they are the only books that is worth mentioning. But the other books coming out deserve much more recognition in our bookstagram community.
I’m really behind on my reviews but bear with me as I juggle schoolwork and reading and writing reviews.
Here is a review on Marjane Satrapi’s comic strip memoir where she grows up seeing the Islamic Revolution occurring right at her doorstep. Continue reading “Chapter 4: Persepolis”
Another month has gone by, so it is time to decide which books you plan on reading this new month if you are like me and enjoy planning everything to the extreme. So this month I’m going to attempt to read four books, not including the ones I have to read for my classes and here are the current ones I’m dying to read.
Many of you have heard of the Diversity Book Challenge people are taking this year, and many of you feel like it’s too much of a chore to do this. But here I will explain to you why these books are so important and why people should be taking this challenge. At the end I invite you to a new sort of challenge if you are up for the task.

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova
Synopsis: Alex comes from a family of brujas(witches) and as she grows she only sees the horror that comes at the price of having magic. When her powers rises, it is to her dismay that she is actually the most powerful witch in a generation. Before the power is blessed by her ancestors Alex performs a spell to get rid of her power that backfires and her family disappears. Along with the help of a brujo she had just met, they travel to Los Lagos (the origin of magic) to find her family and set things right once again.

“There are pieces of me, small pieces, still in love with a fiction.”
There are pieces of me, small pieces, still in love with this story. It’s hard for me to let go of a series once I’m in as deep as the third book, even when with each book slowly my admiration for the character’s leave. So this is my review and opinions on King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard.
The question many readers have asked themselves recently, because of the rising of certain problematic books, is should they read the books or blacklist them? There is even a fear for a reader to post about certain books on all social medias because they fear the ‘attack’ of someone who knows the wrong of the book. In my humble and personal opinion I have one thing to say to everyone about this subject: READ WHAT YOU WANT.
A brief review of Wink Poppy Midnight by April G. Tucholke
First Impression:When I first laid eyes on this book I have to admit, I was in love with the cover. It’s breathtaking, and when you see a beautiful cover then you know the editor and publisher think it’s a good read…
Hey its Rea, @readingsherlock on Instagram and http://readingsherlock.weebly.com but it seems Weebly isn’t cooperating with me anymore so I’m trying out WordPress to publish my book reviews now.
Hopefully it will be a much friendlier and easier experience to handle. And I might just publish the reviews I had over there onto this new website once I have it up and running.
Now just a quick list of what I’m currently reading
- Storm of Swords by George R.R.Martin
- Red Queen by Victoria A.
Usually I read three books at a time but I just finished The Cursed Child and am currently working on its review. It shall be up sometime this week.
Well that’s it for now, hope you stick around 🙂
