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.

Adaptation Review: Netflix’s Thirteen Reasons Why

Aha so now we enter controversial territory. I’m doing this review as part of the blog challenge for the Summer Bibib, which is to write a book review. Technically, I’m doing an adaptation review but I’ve been meaning to do this review anyway so I thought I’d just force it into this challenge. I’ll also review a bit of the book so maybe it counts? Anyway.
