Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Picture1

“What if we live in a fifth-dimensional probability space? What if we actually inhabit the multiverse, but our brains have evolved in such a way as to equip us with a firewall that limits what we perceive to a single universe? One worldline. The one we chose, moment to moment. It makes sense if you think about it. We couldn’t possibly contend with simultaneously observing all possible realities at once.
So how do we access the 5-D probability space?
And if we could, where would it take us?”

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Picture1

This book had so much potential. It looked and felt so good at the beginning! I was into the mythology and world-building, I felt that the MC showed promise, and I was excited because “The Star-Touched Queen” felt like a glorious blend of some of my favourite YA fantasies.

Review: The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North

Picture1

DNF @ 34% – I tried, but a lot of reviews told me it wasn’t going to get any better.

Once again, Claire North thinks up an interesting concept but entirely fails to deliver. If you’re like me and you found The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August a disappointment, then I’d suggest giving this one a miss. Though Goddamn it had such potential I’m almost mad. Continue reading

Mental Health Awareness Week: Leave Millennials Alone

description
Millennials get a lot of hate, don’t they? I mean, I’m sure all “younger generations” have been moaned about by the “older generations” since time began, but we’ve got the internet now, and that hate and disrespect is more prominent than its ever been. I wanted to talk about this during Mental Health Awareness Week because this topic in all its complexities is, and always had been, one of the most angst-inducing issues I face on a daily basis.
