The two run to a bunker to protect themselves from an air raid, and after their hideout is hit, they find themselves transported to Silence. Silence is a magical world that Noah… Continue reading Silence | Switch Review

FAR: Lone Sails | Xbox One Review

I was immediately drawn into this game the second I booted it up. FAR: Lone Sails is a meditative, relaxing experience that leaves the narrative up to the player to decipher. You play as a little red cutie who is (perhaps) the last of their kind, and your main objective is to navigate your landship across different… Continue reading FAR: Lone Sails | Xbox One Review

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis | Book Review

I read Five Feet Apart to prepare for the film, not realizing this novel was written AFTER the screenplay. Thankfully, this actually expands upon the screenplay and adds much needed detail, extra emotion and nuance, and makes subtle changes. The story revolves around two teens, Stella and Will. They both have cystic fibrosis (CF), with Will having… Continue reading Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis | Book Review

Paris for One & Other Stories by Jojo Moyes | Book Review

Paris for One & Other Stories is a collection comprised of one novella and eight short stories about women in relationships, both great and lackluster. Paris for One, the novella, is easily the standout and feels the most like Jojo Moyes' typical writing. This story sees a woman being left alone in Paris after her… Continue reading Paris for One & Other Stories by Jojo Moyes | Book Review
