Review: Orchard Of Skeletons by Eli Wilde

It’s been a while since the last time I picked up a dystopian horror, but even then, I did not expect Orchard of Skeletons by Eli Wilde to be such an unforgettable and incredible survival story! Centered around two teenagers on the run for freedom, Orchard of Skeletons is a dark and gruesome story set in a post-apocalyptic world where most of humanity have died to a pandemic while the rest that are alive would do anything to survive, even if it means resorting to nightmarish violence.

Review: Daughter Of The Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan

I am the problem, it’s me.

For real though. Highly appropriate Taylor Swift references aside, Daughter Of The Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan is hit-or-miss; you’ll either love it or you won’t. And I…am not quite fond of it. That’s not an issue with the book itself, it’s just a very personal preference.

Sounds ambiguous? Here’s my explanation for those who care to read.

Review: The Literary Undoing Of Victoria Swann by Virginia Pye

While I have sort of stopped reading historical fiction as I grew older, there have been a few rare gems that I do come across now and then. The Literary Undoing of Victoria Swann by Virginia Pye is one such amazing book. A love letter to readers, writers, and librarians, The Literary Undoing Of Victoria Swann is an inspiring story about a woman who chooses to defy patriarchy with her written stories.

Why The Hunger Games Books Are Still Popular 10 Years Later

It’s been a while since I last read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, but I still remember how, back when I was only 16, it was one of those Young Adult books that took the entire world by storm. And although there has been an endless slew of Young Adult dystopian novels since then, The Hunger Games books are still buzzing on book Twitter, bookstagram, and TikTok. Which begs the question: why are The Hunger Games books still popular today?
