Music for Writing.

One of the best ways to get your mind onto it’s creative thinking space is to listen to music. This doesn’t work for everyone and some people prefer silence so if you’re trying to figure out what works best for you, try this then try silence and see which one makes you work better.

Review: Crescendo. (Hush, Hush Book 2)

This may well be my first book review that isn’t just me gushing over an amazing book because, to be honest, most of this book wasn’t amazing. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t in any way a bad book, it just turned more into a romance drama than the fantasy that I was promised.

Nora is haunted by the ghost of her father and she finds it hard to trust even those closest to her. She discovers secrets from her past, her mother’s past, and those of her closest friends. Continue reading “Review: Crescendo. (Hush, Hush Book 2)”

Review: Lady Midnight

First things first, this book is both very heavy (both physically and emotionally) and very emotionally destructive. Do not undertake the reading of this book lightly.

Emma Carstairs remembers The Dark War well. She and her now-parabatai, Julian Blackthorn both fought in Alicante when they were only twelve years old. Now, five years on, they are faced with a new threat. There have been a series of murders near the Los Angeles Institute and Emma has taken it upon herself to investigate them. Thrust into a confusing maze of underground societies and secrets hidden in the darkness of the past, Emma and the Blackthorns of the LA Institute attempt to unravel exactly why humans and faeries alike are being killed by a faceless enemy.

Review: The Mortal Instruments.

**spoiler alert**

Okay, this one has been a long time coming. I said that I would read this a long time ago. So, naturally it took me four years to do so. But, boy, am I glad I did? This is one of those series’ where you just kinda go “WOW”. It’s seriously awesome and there’s action and drama and romance and evil people who try to take over the world. It’s the complete package.

I was lucky enough to go to a writing festival last year that Cassandra Clare was attending and doing a presentation with Holly Black. This would have been great had I actually read any of either of their books at this point, however, after meeting her I decided that it was definitely time to read The Mortal Instruments. I was not disappointed. Continue reading “Review: The Mortal Instruments.”

The Infernal Devices.

**spoiler alert**

Okay, okay, this one is gonna be emotional. It’s a fresh wound. I swear, this woman is tearing my life apart with her books. Cassandra Clare has done it again, this time with the Infernal Devices. They are the prequel series to her famous Mortal Instruments series (Yes, I will do a post about them soon), set in 19th century London, it follows Tessa Gray who comes to London from her home in New York after her aunt dies to live with her brother, Nathaniel, who promises her a new life with him in England. When Tessa arrives, however, she is kidnapped by a pair of demons called the Dark Sisters who force Tessa to reveal a power that she didn’t even know she had.

The story follows her escape from the Dark Sisters’ House and her life in the London Institute while she falls in love with two Shadowhunters and is hunted by the Magister who wishes to use her to destroy all Nephilim.
