    Book Review: Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust

    I finished reading Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust yesterday and let me tell you that I am still not over it. I love fairy tales and stories that are inspired by them.

    Book Review: The Ten Thousand Doors Of January by Alix E. Harrow

    Let me start off by saying that I had no clue about the plot before reading The Ten Thousand Doors Of January. I had seen a few bloggers rave about it online and when it did show up on my NetGalley feed while I was browsing for books, the cover instantly caught my attention. So I thought why not?

About The Book In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she…

    Book Review – A Darker Shade Of Magic by V.E Schwab

    Book Review – Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

    Before the beginning, there was nothing – no Earth, no Heavens, no stars, no sky. Only the mist world, and the fire world, always burning. My Rating: 5/5 Details:No. of Pages: 283Published By: BloomsburyGenre: Fantasy, MythologyBook Type: Paperback I am a big fan of mythology. The stories tell us of a time gone by and of heroes and villains with powers unimaginable. The stories tell us about life and death and of adventures into the unknown. I have a fair knowledge of Greek and Egyptian mythology but I knew nothing of Norse. The only thing I heard of Norse Mythology was from Marvel’s Thor, and that too not much of…
