    Author Interview: These Violent Delights’ Chloe Gong [Excerpt]

    Something I tried not to advertise too much was that I got an early eARC copy of These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong and I loved it! It was such a great read in August, my review will be up sometime next month in anticipation for its publishing — and I also had the chance to interview Chloe Gong about it, thanks to The Nerd Daily! To spread some of the love, I thought I’d include another excerpt of the interview here for you guys to read – I loved all her answers and…she’s kind of iconic (her twitter and tik toks are blessed). In case you guys didn’t know,…

    Cinderella Is Dead Book Review

    I have been seeing this beautiful book on my feed and recommended by people in the book community A LOT well before it’s publication date (yesterday). So I was pretty excited to read this book; thank you so much to Bloomsbury Publishing Australia for kindly sending me a finished copy in exchange for an honest review (as well as a couple of others I’m so grateful for). I absolutely flew through this gorgeous book and cannot wait to share my thoughts with you below. Goodreads Blurb: It’s 200 years since Cinderella found her prince, but the fairytale is over. Sophia knows the story though, off by heart. Because every girl…

    Skyward by Brandon Sanderson Book Review

    I discovered Brandon Sanderson a long time ago, I even bought his Mistborn trilogy over a year ago but never got to it. His books are notoriously big and always fantasy filled that I’ve been pretty intimidated to pick his books. When Skyward came out, I was pretty apprehensive cause it was another Brandon Sanderson book – but this one was YA and everybody started talking about it. I had friends in real life tell me how good this book was and this year, when I got an Amazon gift card; I decided, let’s try this out. Let’s buy Skyward and see how Brandon Sanderson’s writing is. Let’s just say…

    Ninth House Book Review

    I finally finished the book that’s been on everyone’s ‘Anticipated Releases of 2019’ OR ‘Books I Wish I Read in 2019’ if they haven’t read it already. Boy, am I proud of myself cause I almost gave up halfway. Goodreads Blurb Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at…

    Serpent & Dove Book Review

    A book I had been anticipating and so excited to get to because of all the hype in the book community but also because – who doesn’t love a good hate-to-love romance? plus witchy vibes? yes please and yes I can officially announce that YES – I freaking loved this one. Goodreads Blurb “A brilliant debut, full of everything I love: a sparkling and fully realized heroine, an intricate and deadly system of magic, and a searing romance that kept me reading long into the night. Serpent & Dove is an absolute gem of a book.” —Sarah J. Maas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Court of Thorns and Roses series Bound…

    Chasing the Shadows Book Review

    In case you didn’t notice, I was so lucky to interview Maria V Snyder (!!!), the author of Chasing the Shadows (the second novel in the Sentinels of the Galaxy trilogy). I had previously read the first book last year, called Navigating the Stars (review here!) and really enjoyed it! So it was great to be able to read the sequel ahead of its release last month and interview Maria, so huge thanks to Harlequin Australia for that. Goodreads Blurb New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder returns with the next page-turning instalment of the new sci-fi series: Sentinels of the Galaxy Year 2522. Lyra Daniels is dead.

    Oasis Book Review

    Oasis by Katya de Becerra Book Review Is it awesome having an author friend that is lovely enough to gift you their ARC? Yes. Is it even better when their book is freaking amazing? Hell yes. I almost didn’t expect how good this would be and it literally got me out of a book slump. Goodreads Blurb:   The oasis saved them. But who will save them from the oasis? Alif had exciting summer plans: working on her father’s archaeological dig site in the desert with four close friends . . . and a very cute research assistant. Then the sandstorm hit. With their camp wiped away, Alif and the…

    And the Ocean Was Our Sky Book Review When I first heard that this book was weird, I thought; y’know that’s pretty normal for Patrick Ness, they’re usually pretty cool and great even though they’re weird but omg, okay this book was weird XD and I still picked this bad boy up from the library.
