Review | Sisters by Daisy Johnson

I have been infatuated with Daisy Johnson's writing for a while now; so much so that I've gone ahead and put her previous novel Everything Under on the curriculum for my last Intro to English Literature tutorial. I adored her take on the enigma that is home, hometowns, family, and the complex feelings surrounding all… Continue reading Review | Sisters by Daisy Johnson

Review | Constellations by Sinéad Gleeson

Essay collections are one of my favorite literary forms. I enjoy diving into someone else's life for a couple pages, and then into someone else's, or into a different point in time, or a different perspective. It's escapism on high. There's a certain comfort in exploring someone else's consciousness when your own thoughts have become… Continue reading Review | Constellations by Sinéad Gleeson

Review | Last Ones Left Alive by Sarah Davis-Goff

Ever read a book so good you felt like you had to bring back your long-dead book blog? No? Well, you obviously haven't read Last Ones Left Alive then.1 First things first, this review warrants a shout-out to the Lockdown Book Club - I genuinely don't think I would have picked this book up otherwise.… Continue reading Review | Last Ones Left Alive by Sarah Davis-Goff

Rezension | Ersticktes Matt von Nina C. Hasse

Dobre Djen, Genossen, und wilkommen zu einer - lang überfälligen - neuen Rezensionsrunde! Draußen hackt auf dem Plattenbau-Parkplatz ein russischer Bär Holz, die Wohnung wummert angenehm durch die penetrante Turbofolk-Beschallung der Mieter drüber, und mein Kaffee hat einen verdächtig alkoholischen Nachgeschmack. Gäbe es einen besseren Zeitpunkt um zu schreiben? Ich glaube nicht, nein. Heute widme… Continue reading Rezension | Ersticktes Matt von Nina C. Hasse

Review | The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

I love buying books on the go, straight before I head off to whatever adventure life has in stock for me. Those are uninformed and unjustifiable decisions at the check-out and they are, quite usually, the best. A while ago, something emotionally exhausting happened. My best friend B jumped to my help and we agreed to… Continue reading Review | The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

Guest Review by Bekka Fuchs | Kyousuke Motomi – QQ Sweeper

If I had to put my feelings on QQ Sweeper in one word, it would certainly be a high pitched pterodactyl screech. Sadly, yelling excitedly at people is not the reason reviews exist so I am going to try my best to put the swirling fluff that flies about in my head into proper words.… Continue reading Guest Review by Bekka Fuchs | Kyousuke Motomi – QQ Sweeper
