Those Apart by Padraig O’C Review



Disclaimer: Although this book was sent to me to review by the publisher I have not been payed to write this review. All opinions expressed are my own and are completely honest.


  • Realistic and respectful representation of the LGBTQA+ community
  • LGBTQA+ characters are well written and not defined by their sexuality or gender identity
  • Racially diverse
  • Incredibly immersive
  • Who doesn’t love a book with a map in it?


  • Starts off fairly slow
  • The character names and politics of the world are difficult to keep straight at first

If you want a book to take you to a different world entirely Those Apart is perfect for you. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series!


Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson Mini Review



I have some mixed feelings about this book. While I did have fun reading it, I noticed multiple plot holes/unresolved issues. It wasn’t until the middle of the book that I started to care about the characters and what would happen to them. I felt the same way when I read My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick, a fun way to pass the time. Ultimately this book was a nice casual read to start off summer vacation.

What books are on your summer TBR?

I now understand why everyone raves about this book.
-The beginning was a bit slow for me but once I got into it I couldn’t stop reading.
-I wasn’t a huge fan of the love triangle but aside from that I loved every part of this book.
-It is by far one of the most immersive and well thought out fantasy novels I have ever read.
-If it weren’t currently the middle of the night I would be running to the book store to buy the sequel.

I highly recommend this book for anyone in need of a vacation from the real world!
