Audiobook Review: ‘Finding Yvonne’

The summary of Finding Yvonne sounded interesting and rather unique enough – Yvonne plays violin, but she’s just not good enough to get into conservatories after high school. But then she becomes pregnant, which throws another wrench into her plans! Oh no! However, the story honestly didn’t feel anything like the summary and both the music aspect and the pregnancy played smaller roles than I would have expected and I was disappointed with this overall.

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Spill Zone’ & ‘The Broken Vow’

While I have read my fair share of manga, I will admit I haven’t read too many America/European graphic novels, but when I saw my favorite author Scott Westerfeld was a part of this, I knew I had to pick it up – and I loved it! (If you’re a fan of Stranger Things, I think you’ll enjoy this series!)

Review: ‘Sleeping Giants’ & ‘Waking Gods’

This is a review I’ve wanted to write since we started this blog seven or so months ago. The timing just never felt right. But with the final book of the trilogy (Only Human) coming out on May 1st, there’s no better time then the present to share my review and thoughts on Themis Files – aka Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1) and Waking Gods (Themis #2). This will be a double-header review, but no spoilers!
