What makes this saga one of the best fantasy book series of this age?
“Winter is coming.” These ominous words are spoken throughout the book series, A Song of Ice and Fire by George Martin. Referred to by Time Magazine as the “American Tolkien,” Martin has created what can be described as one of the best fantasy book series of this day and age. All books have been nominated for Hugo, Locus, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards. Martin’s saga tells the story of multiple characters in fictional lands (The Telegraph 2011).
Every book lover feels the deep and painful pang of limited time. We want to read all the books.
In the movie “About Time”, Bill Nighy’s character possesses the power of time travel. He uses his superpower to eternally extend his capacity for reading. (He has a particular love for Hemingway books, by the way…)
Can you imagine?! Book-lover’s paradise.
I opened the red door, and a little bell rang…
I was seven years old, but I still remember that day. It was early afternoon, and my grandfather decided it was time to buy my very first book.
See, he had this tradition going on with my older brother. Every month, they’d visit the local bookstore and buy a book. As long as my brother read it, my grandfather would pay for it.
I always felt jealous. But, it was my turn!
Amazon’s Kindle has undoubtedly been a boon to readers athwart the globe. The Kindle continues to be one of the best e-readers in the market. It offers three models to pick from with a few differences in their specs. That’s where it gets confusing. As an addition to the Oasis and Paperwhite, we now have the Kindle Voyage amongst us. Each one of these versions has had their share of unique features.
Here’s the thing about depression: it is an immensely crippling mental illness. So much so, that verbalizing what one is going through is an onerous task.
It is a complex illness, a layered pain, and the stigma around it doesn’t help. I can try to put into words and say: it is a combination of ineffable hollowness and infinite sadness. When someone is going through a depressive episode, no matter how productive or functional they may appear, they are predisposed to low self-worth, lack of motivation and an absence of the ability to partake in the enjoyment of life.

Anna and the French Kiss is a phenomenal debut YA novel from Stephanie Perkins. It walks the line between hilarious and emotive, hysterical and hard hitting. If you’re looking for a story that grabs at your heart and holds it with incredible characters, a beautiful setting and many a near miss, you’ll find a home in this story. After many a Tumblr recommendation of this novel, I picked it up in Waterstones and set myself down to read.
The hairs on the back of Jackie’s neck started to tingle. She held her composure, feeling the eyes of everyone in the group on her. The limelight was her home. Today, however, she wanted nothing more than to crawl into a hole. She wouldn’t let her composure crack, not like Cece. Cece was dramatic on a typical day.
This is one of those books that is very hard to forget. While I had some issues with this book, and at times found it a little predictable, it doesn’t much matter. This is one of those books that matters because of what it talks about: in particular the issues presented to teen trans girls in a world that isn’t ready for them.

Having read Like Hell by Madeline Stanford some time ago, I was expecting this story to be good, and it didn’t disappoint.

Kallie paints constellations on her ceiling, sleeps in a hammock, and enacts fantastical plays in front of cute boys on the beach.
I’ve had this book for a while, and I put of reading it for some time. Mostly because I’ve become very wary about books focused on being transgender. Not because the stories are bad, or unimportant. Mostly because they tend to be very similar. It’s only been two weeks since I read Meredith Russo’s debut, If I Was Your Girl, and so I was worried the story lines would be too similar. However, this book gave me a very pleasant and refreshing surprise.
Plains of Sand and Steel tells the story a young woman who rises up to take charge of the empire after the sudden death of her royal husband. It features her courageous attempts to conceal a secret and protect her people from the invaders. The novel is war, revenge, friendship, betrayal, and love beautifully entangled in an fantasy setting.
I could write a fanfiction about Fangirl. I love it that much. As a writer of fanfiction, a lover of books and a massive nerd, it’s very difficult not to.

While on first glance The Walled City appears to be a dystopian fiction, the book is actually based on a very real place: The Kowloon walled city in Hong Kong was once home to a Chinese military base. There was no architectural plan, which led to makeshift buildings being thrown up without a proper plan. The result was a haven of drug lords, poverty and a home for black markets and brothels.
The Walled City is based entirely on this premise.
