Book two in the Orisha trilogy and the sequel for 'Children of Blood and Bone'. I was expecting a lot from the second book since the first one had been a smashing debut that I had been completely pulled into. And like all things that I have great expectations with, this one left me disappointed. … Continue reading Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi – Thoughts

What a book, guys. And what a story! I'm absolutely blown away and can't wait to see the words on screen now.

Finally, I read a Stephen King!! One popular, mainstream and much loved author, who was on my list to read forever. And I'm glad I read this book. I usually have a 'read the book first' and 'watch the screen adaptation later' rule, but there have been some exceptions to this rule and Stephen King's … Continue reading The Institute by Stephen King – Book Thoughts
This action will have no echo But this book and this duology and these characters have left behind a long lasting echo in my heart. What a splendid sequel!
