Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher | Growing up meant I went from loving a book to hating it…

Everyone has been going on about this book/Netflix show. And like the little bandwagon-jumper I am, I had to join in. Because I saw the differing opinions. I saw people either love the show or hate it with a passion. And I read this book about 4 years ago, so I couldn’t really state my own opinion in the discussions. I didn’t know which side I agreed with. All I knew was that I used to love the book, but thinking back on it, I no longer liked the idea. And so I decided to both watch the show and reread the book, with the goal of making a discussion video about it – which you can see here.

For now though? Well, the title of this review probably gives you a massive hint as to how things went…

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll | Getting weirdly annoyed at a child

ย Well this sure was an odd reading experience. I picked this one up for a quick read – being half the size of my usual books and a children’s. But it really didn’t go how I expected.

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon | I’m way too fond of this series to take this normally (I cried)

The Song Rising

Beyond the Wall by Tanya Landman | DNF’ed and a call out of possible racism

Beyond the Wall

I didn’t expect to find myself publishing a book review at 9:30pm on a Saturday evening. Especially when I have another blog post coming in the morning. But I just decided to DNF this book, and while I usually just leave my explanation on Goodreads…well, this one took some explaining. My “mini review” wasn’t exactly mini anymore. So I did a quick hop-skip-and a jump over here, and decided to publish it here too.

Let’s get into it!

The Mime Order

How glad am I that I reread the first two books in this series before going onto the third? VERY.

I forgot so much. I feel like my mind has been enlightened. Like…I knew I was missing details, but not quite so much. And for a favourite series? Well, we can’t be having that now can we.
