Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

“Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.” — Mary Shelley, Frankenstein     I guess it was about time that I finally took a dive into the very original story of one of the most famous monsters out there. Seeing the big green creature left and right around Halloween…

Books for Stranger Things fans

If you are a hardcore fan of Stranger Things like me, you would binge watch everything from Season 2 and then got stuck of having nothing to do after… But, luckily for us, there are books ! 😀 So here are some books that can delay your withdrawal symptom of  Stranger Things feels for a…

13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough // Brilliant Constructed Crime YA

MY RATING : ★★★★★/5  I don’t always appreciate thrillers nowadays BUT this one is one hell of exception.   The overall plot is around Natasha who was dead for 13 minutes in a freezing river, she woke up from a coma and can’t recall what happened or how she ended up dead. Okay, past me was like…

The Shoe on the Roof by Will Ferguson

“They found it, tucked out of sight, exactly where she said it would be: a single shoe, on the roof.” — Will Ferguson, The Shoe on the Roof     Giller prize-winning author of 419 returns with a different and unique story that tackles sanity and madness through the eyes of a man who breaks…

The Book of Swords by Gardner Dozois (Editor)

“From now on, if you wanted to tell those kinds of stories, you were going to have to have to do it in fantasy.” — Gardner Dozois, The Book of Swords     I’ve always thought that short stories were so much more harder for authors to nail. To be able to compress a whole narrative…

Ex Machina (Volume 1) The First Hundred Days by Brian K. Vaughan

“It may look like a comic, but it’s really a tragedy.” — Brian K. Vaughan, Ex Machina (Volume 1) The First Hundred Days     Set around the year 2000, Ex Machina (Volume 1) The First Hundred Days concocts a New York city politics-filled drama mixed in with a dose of realistic superhero vigilantism. Writer of…

Strange Fire by Tommy Wallach

MY RATING : ★★★★/5  Wow quel plaisir ! That’s what I screamed to myself on my couch when I finish this book. It’s probably one of my favourite dystopian novel of the year. The overall plot of the book is between two brothers Clive and Clover. One is eighteen, has to be an adult and bears…

Blackwing by Ed McDonald

“I don’t like things that don’t make sense. Not until I’ve put a knife in them.” — Ed McDonald, Blackwing     It would be a mistake to overlook this book. Ed McDonald’s debut novel, the first book in The Raven’s Mark series, is a phenomenal piece of literature. It glows with fiery passion and an…

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

“Everything is true. Everything anybody has ever thought.” — Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?     What is life? Such a mundane question, right? Philip K. Dick doesn’t think so. He sure as hell didn’t think so when he wrote Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Although Blade Runner (1982) draws inspiration…

Blade Runner 2049 – Movie Review

MY RATING : ★★★★/5 After reading Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? By Philip K.Dick , I immediately wanted to watch the famous movie by Ridley Scott, Blade Runner. I’m sorry to say but that first movie of Blade Runner was pretty disappointing for me. I fell asleep man. While I feel like the first movie…
