November Autumn Crafts Unboxing

20171124_180702.jpg

Today I’m going to be sharing with you what’s inside the November Autumn Crafts Subscription Box. This is a box for planners and bullet journal enthusiasts and I thought it would be a great box to try out now that I’m starting to set up my bullet journal for 2018. I love how they even design the box itself to suit the theme, which is ‘I Believe in Unicorns’ for November. Lots of unicorn-y stuff inside the box!

Review: Gone series

The Gone series by Michael Grant is an epic post-apocalyptic sci-fi with the most hideous covers about what happens when everyone above the age of 15 suddenly disappears in a town in California and all the remaining children are surrounded by an impenetrable barrier that cuts them off from the rest of the world. Also, kids start developing supernatural powers and weird mutations start popping up. Oh, and there’s an evil “Darkness” that’s in the dome (known as the FAYZ) with them. The biggest recipe for disaster if I’ve ever heard of one. This is a young adult series but Michael Grant certainly does not shy away from the gore and horror that comes with such an apocalyptic story and it reads like a Stephen King horror series (not that I’ve ever read Stephen King but I imagine this would be how he writes). I definitely would not recommend this series for people who are squeamish. It is horrifying and nearly vomit-inducing to read about but much like a train wreck, you just can’t look away. Being in the post-apocalyptic genre, the series also has much social commentary to make and much to say about society and the way it’s run. It is overall a fascinating and action-packed series that will take you to the limits of humanity and beyond.

Series Review: The Raven Cycle

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater is a paranormal-type series following Blue, who comes from a family of psychics but has no magical abilities of her own, and four prep school boys as they follow ley lines and other magical things in search of a dead Welsh king. Strange synopsis right? Well, the series overall is pretty strange too. It’s super hyped on Booktube and everyone absolutely loves it but I don’t think it really suits me. The story is too weird and the paranormal elements too far out of my comfort zone that I couldn’t really get into it.

Series Review: The Lunar Chronicles

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is a sci-fi series retelling the stories of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White. The combination of the sci-fi genre and fairytales is an interesting one and doesn’t seem like it should work, but man, it totally does. This series is just so fun and lighthearted and an absolute joy to read. It made me smile and I would totally recommend it if you ever need a pick-me-up. Full review with spoilers below the cut.

Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2017 Wrap-Up

This past week, I took part in the Summer Biannual Bibliothon and it was my first time taking part in a readathon ever. I thought it was quite fun and I’m happy to say that I managed to complete my TBR and all the reading challenges that I set out to do. I wanted to take part in the blog challenges too but unfortunately, I gave up after Day 2 cause I was too lazy. Oh well, I’m not gonna beat myself up about it. Today, I bring you my wrap-up of all the books I read during the Summer Bibib!
