From Below by Darcy Coates

I was immediately intrigued with the synopsis of this book. It’s about a group of dives exploring a sunken ship deep in the ocean in a space where there’s no movement of water, therefore no oxygen and therefore no flora and fauna. Just an abandoned ship underwater that sank mysteriously about a 100 years ago….

The Fine Print by Lauren Asher

This is an easy one. Bubbly but heartbroken Zahra meets ruthless but depressed Rowan. They meet in their office of Dreamland theme park where she’s an employee and he’s her boss. There’s primal attraction between the two leading to a kiss not too long into the book. Rowan ends up texting Zahra as Scott –…

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon

It’s a creepy book, that makes you question – why would someone want to read a diary only meant to be cursed and written about some really bad, demonic things that still lurk within the woods? Well. That’s the mystery of it all.

The Order Of The Pure Moon Reflected In Water by Zen Cho

The first time I heard about this book, was in several book vlogs on YouTube. The cover was phenomenal and the premise seemed promising. I knew this was a novella before I downloaded it on my kindle. And that’s the thing – you always expect novellas to pack a punch as they have to make…

The Bookshop On The Corner by Jenny Colgan

I’m so glad I read this, albeit an ebook version. I wish I did end up getting a paperback of this. It’s a book I will re-read and cherish for life, and recommend to anyone looking for a pick-me-up and know-yourself-better read.

What is it about smut that draws all of us back again, and again?

Being readers, the outside-in view of us is quite skewed. People think we’re intellectuals (often also straight-up called ‘boring’) who don’t really understand socializing. I can speak for myself here, for sure. People are weird, considering them thinking I only read some out-of-the-world books with philosophical and some scholarly discussions that I may be having…

All The Murmuring Bones by A. G. Slatter

Miren O’Malley is a young girl living in an isolated, mysterious town of Breakwater. Once her family passes away, she travels to find answers about her parents who abandoned her as a child. However, the whole story has gothic fiction & supernatural creations so normalised. It makes things only better cuz it’s based jn Ireland….

Only When It’s Us by Chloe Liese

I needed something rather light and relaxed and this was it. Plus, the book had representation too. the male protagonist is partially deaf and yet the story remains so beautiful. I’ve not written a blog in such a long while I honestly feel like what is even the point of paying a bomb to maintain…

The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey.

I knew bare minimal about this book when I began – post-apocalyptic horror where humanity has been reduced to dust. A girl called Melanie goes to school, strapped to a wheelchair, lives in a cell within a Bunker in the middle of nowhere. All the kids in her class are strapped the same way where…
