Caraval by Stephanie Garber

MY RATING: ★★★ A lot of hype surrounded this book so I went in with a lot of expectations. Unfortunately it didn’t meet mine. I ended up giving it 3 stars, it was enjoyable but I had some problems with it. For the following reasons:

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

MY RATING: ★★★   “Because,” said Thor, “when something goes wrong, the first thing I always think is, it is Loki’s fault. It saves a lot of time.” This novel was very hard for me to rate because I’ve never rated a mythology translation/retelling before. Therefore, you can’t really rate a book based on the plot…

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2 – Cinedote

MY RATING: ★★★ (3.4) /5 There’s this unspoken myth that the sequels can never top the first movie? But somehow, Marvel succeeds to eradicate that myth because in some of their movies, the sequels were actually better or vice versa. It’s hard to tell for me when I finished watching the vol.2 of the Guardians of The…
