Book Review:

I hadn't heard of the Curse of Time when I received an email to be part of the blog tour but being a person who loves to read YA fantasy I knew I had to give it a read. I really enjoyed The Curse of Time and it is a really solid read, great for anyone who loves to read.

So only having a vague idea of the premise I started reading the book and found out from the first page that I needed to know what happened. I was fully invested in the story and needed to keep reading. I was intrigued by the story and the mysterious guy at the beginning who I ended up really liking as a character. The letter was also a mystery so basically, I just wanted to keep reading.


This was similar to throughout the book, the plot was quite interesting throughout and it definitely kept me reading. I didn't want to put it down. I also liked how the book had many mundane issues and dealt with the family aspects of it really well. I definitely thought that this was developed throughout and I especially liked her cat because I am a sucker for cats in books.


I also really enjoyed the characters in the book, Amelina was a really solid character and I liked seeing her arc through the book. I also did really enjoy the writing. The poetry at the beginning of every chapter was a nice addition and I have not seen this done in other books before. The general writing of the book was also really good and hopefully, I can get my hands on the sequel.
The Verdict:

The Curse of Time is an interesting and engaging fantasy read that focuses on family that is great for anyone who loves a great read!

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
