When I love books, I love them; if they’re well-written and the authors genuinely make an attempt to create worlds that are beautiful and interesting in their own way, I’ll probably enjoy it even if I have some problems with them. That was the case for the following two books.

I feel like I need to start with the book that I’m capable of writing the least about because it’s always hard for me to expand on sentiments of adoration for anything. I loved this novel […] Continue Reading…

It should go without saying that I am capable of making my own decisions, and it should also go without saying that I don’t want unsolicited advice. Which also means that any unsolicited advice that you offer will only make me angry. There’s a reason for this: I didn’t ask for it, and I didn’t go out of my way to gain your insight on something you’ve got no right to advise me on.

Rarely do I run into books that require I take a break from everything and spend a lot of time beating up spiders in a virtual world to avoid hurling it at the wall. For the fourth time. Unfortunately, the novel in this Book Interlude has left me wanting to set fire to it, even though I don’t really think we should burn them.

Otome games are ridiculously easy to get into, and it’s usually because they’re so simple to play; the story’s path is relatively straight-forward and hard to deviate from, and it’s rare that options actually have any impact on what’s going to happen. Long Live the Queen isn’t like that, though. Its entire premise is that you must keep Elodie, a young soon-to-be-queen, alive despite the growing threats as she makes decisions for her kingdom.

Elodie’s list of deaths.

That aspect is what makes this game interesting: You have to keep Elodie alive for the entire 40 weeks […] Continue Reading…
