The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks Book Review

For some reason, if everyone likes a book, if they’re all raving about it, I stay away from it. I like to come to books when I’m good and ready, not just because everyone saus I should. I tend to come late to most fandoms which is good because it means there’s more story for…

Zom-B by Darren Shan Book Review

I’ve not read much Darren Shan. As a 22 year old woman, I’m hardly his target market. I actually bought this for my boyfriend (who is also not in Shan’s target market, but a fan nonetheless) because he’s read other of Shan’s books and I thought he might like this one. In my naivety, I…

The Martian by Andy Weir Book Review

  There’s been a lot in the news recently¬†about NASA finding more and more out about Mars. It won’t be long before we eventually get humans there. Maybe even in my lifetime. But what about those of us who are impatient and need to go to Mars NOW! Well now you can! Andy Weir has…
