Book Review - Before the Coffee gets Cold

Title: Before the Coffee Gets Cold  Author : Toshikazu Kawaguchi Published: September 19th, 2019 Publisher : Picardo Summary:  In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a café which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time. In  Before the Coffee Gets Cold , we meet four visitors, each of whom is hoping to make use of the café’s time-travelling offer, in order to: confront the man who left them, receive a letter from their husband whose memory has been taken by early onset Alzheimer's, to see their sister one last time, and to meet the daughter they never got the chance to know. But the journey into the past does not come without risks: customers must sit in a particular seat, they cannot leave the café, and finally, they must return to the present before the coffee gets cold. Review:  I had to check Goodreads before writing this review, and those revie

WWW Wednesday

Hello  WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Sam @ Taking On a World of Words . All you have to do is answer the three Ws, which are listed below.  Feel free to post a link to your blog post or leave a comment if you do not have a blog. The Three Ws are: What are you currently reading? Currently reading the sequel to From Ash and Blood, this book is longer than the first. I'm currently loving it just as much as the first book and really looking forward to finishing it. What did you recently finish?  I recently finished this gem of a book, and I'm super excited to review it. I absolutely loved it and finished the book after 4-5 hours of intensive reading. This book is definitely worth the hype it is getting.  What will you read next? Depending on my mood, I will either be reading One of Us is Lying or The Wicked King. I think I'm leaning more towards The Wicked King, but that might change after I finish A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire. What are you currently reading?

Book Review - The Cruel Prince

Title: The Cruel Prince  Author: Holly Black Published: January 2nd, 2018 Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers Summary: Of course, I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever. And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe. Jude was seven when her parents were murdered, and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King. To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences. As Jude becomes more deeply embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, she discovers her own capacity for trickery and bloodshed. But as betrayal threatens to drown the Cour

Ebook Review - Madness

Title: Madness  Author: Paityn Parque Published: August 11th, 2021 This book was given to me for a review request.  Summary:  Death is not an escape. One night Ezra Adkins is brutally murdered in her own home. As she was dying, she expects to wake up in the afterworld. She was wrong. She loses consciousness and awakens into a horrific game of kill or be killed. Players can be killed an infinite number of times, but the only permanent way out of the game is their actual death by suicide. Players in the game ruthlessly hunt each other for points, while others kill for fun. Most players have given up on finding an escape from the game and spiral into insanity, killing without reason. It’s mayhem. Ezra soon learns who to trust and who to hunt down. But as she falls deeper into the game, she starts to lose herself as the bodies pile up. The line blurs between what she’s always known to be right and wrong. Metal will clash. Blood will spill. Minds will break. And before it’s too late, Ezr
