The Plotters Review

Reseng was raised by cantankerous Old Raccoon in the Library of Dogs. To anyone asking, its just an ordinary library. To anyone in the know, its a hub for Seoul’s organised crime, and a place where contract killings are plotted and planned. So its no surprise that Reseng has grown up to become one of the best hitmen in Seoul. He takes orders from the plotters, carries out his grim duties, and comforts himself afterwards with copious quantities of beer and his two cats, Desk and Lampshade. But after he takes pity on a target and lets her die how she chooses, he finds his every move is being watched. Is he finally about to fall victim to his own game? And why does that new female librarian at the library act so strangely? Is he looking for his enemies in all the wrong places? Could he be at the centre of a plot bigger than anything he’s ever known?

2020 Unhaul

So, I didn’t do a post like this last year but I have seen a lot of unhaul posts and videos circulating recently. I personally really enjoy watching and reading unhaul content. I don’t really know why I just tend to find them really interesting and a lot more enjoyable than just videos or posts […]

The Art of Dying Review

Edinburgh, 1850. Despite being at the forefront of modern medicine, hordes of patients are dying all across the city, with doctors finding their remedies powerless. But it is not just the deaths that dismay the esteemed Dr James Simpson – a whispering campaign seeks to blame him for the death of a patient in suspicious circumstances. Simpson’s protégé Will Raven and former housemaid Sarah Fisher are determined to clear their patron’s name. But with Raven battling against the dark side of his own nature, and Sarah endeavouring to expand her own medical knowledge beyond what society deems acceptable for a woman, the pair struggle to understand the cause of the deaths. Will and Sarah must unite and plunge into Edinburgh’s deadliest streets to clear Simpson’s name. But soon they discover that the true cause of these deaths has evaded suspicion purely because it is so unthinkable.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow (5 stars)

It feels so long since I read this book! I didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did! I loved the writing style, I found the main character to be really interesting and I loved the romance elements as well. I feel as the years go by I’m enjoying romance more and more in my stories. What I enjoyed the most was the exploration into the themes of colonialism and race, specifically being mixed race.

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern (5 stars)

I loved the world-building in this novel. The intricacies and detail that went into this world should be applauded. I loved the plot, I was constantly trying to guess and work out why things were happening and how every tiny plot point was connected. I really liked the main character, he was a great way in to learning about the world!

The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson (5 stars)

This book broke my heart but in a great way. Can that happen? I don’t know! This was a brilliant ending to such an incredible trilogy! The world building, the plot choices, the characters! Chef’s kiss! I am so sad it’s over but now I just move on to Sanderson’s next series!!!
