Review: F*ck Marriage – Tarryn Fisher

Review: F*ck Marriage – Tarryn Fisher

F*ck Marriage is a raw, honest tale about Billie and her banked marriage. But it’s also about revenge, love, hope, and friends. Story: F*ck Marriage isn’t only about Billie, though, it is also about Woods and Satcher, who used to be best friends. That is, until Woods cheated on Billie and told her he wanted a divorce. Most of the relationships in F*ck Marriage are rather complicated, once one layer is pealed off, there’s another one ready to be dissected, and that made it a little hard to get to know the characters at times. While I enjoyed Billie, it was also a bit difficult to relate to her. She didn’t know what she wanted. And she didn’t really know […]

Review: F*ck Love – Tarryn Fisher

Review: F*ck Love – Tarryn Fisher

F*ck Love was like a blast to the heart in many ways – and I felt so much for Helena – like the whole spectre of feels was present thanks to her. (un)conventionally short: Yeah, exactly that! A real quick review, even if F*ck Love deserves a long-winded one. I am just so very late in writing reviews these days. This story was almost like a parallel universe at the beginning, I wasn’t sure what was real and what was not. Helena was in a relationship that she wasn’t fully happy in. She needed to ask herself some important questions in order to move forward with her life. The Writing in F*ck Love is fantastic, Fisher spins beautiful stories with […]

Review: Atheists Who Kneel And Pray – Tarryn Fisher

Review: Atheists Who Kneel And Pray – Tarryn Fisher

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is a love story, but it’s also much more than that. Self-discovery sounds like a cliché, and this story was so far from a cliché I can’t really use that to describe it. Atheists Who Kneel and Pray was my first Tarryn Fisher book. And I was pretty much blown away by it. I think what got to me the most is that Yara, the heroine, is not really all that likeable, but she’s very relatable. I wanted to get to know her and her story, even when she did things I didn’t agree with. Or when I didn’t like her at all. That takes some pretty mad writing skills, right? To get you to […]

Review: Never Never #2 – Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

Review: Never Never #2 – Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

Oh my goodness, Never Never is killing me! That is a flipping strong cliff-hanger right there, and I just don’t know if I’ll be able to wait for the next installment! My Never Never review: In Never Never Part 2, I got to know Silas a lot better, as he was the main narrator of the story. He was frantic in his search for Charlie, and the mystery and the suspense was truly palpable, until the very last word of the story! The character development was really well done, especially when taking into account that Silas didn’t even know who he was at the beginning of the story. However, as he followed his own clues, he started having some strong […]

Review: Never Never – Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

Review: Never Never – Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

A different kind of paranormal story, Never Never has both of the MCs being amnesic at the beginning, and as they slowly unravel their pasts, things get complicated. My Never Never review: Charlie and Silas share a common story, but they aren’t really aware of it in Never Never. From the start of the story, the confusion and the memory lapse are at the forefront, and I really enjoyed the fact that Charlie and Silas each had their own chapters – it helped getting to know them, even if they didn’t really know themselves. Mysterious and poignant, the story felt like a reboot, in a way. Where the characters sat down and thought carefully about their past and future choices; […]
