    She did it again! SHE DID IT AGAIN. Okay, yes, I loved it. Let’s do this happy review >>> Goodreads Blurb Half-Fae, half-human Bryce Quinlan loves her life. By day, she works for an antiquities dealer, selling barely legal magical artifacts, and by night, she parties with her friends, savouring every pleasure Lunathion—otherwise known as Crescent City— has to offer. But it all comes crumbling down when a ruthless murder shakes the very foundations of the city—and Bryce’s world.

    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. Okay,…

    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. Goodreads Blurb   With harpoons strapped to their backs, the proud whales of Bathsheba’s pod live for the hunt, fighting in the ongoing war against the world of men. When they attack a ship bobbing on the surface of the Abyss, they expect to find easy prey. Instead, they find the trail of a myth,…

    The DNF Game | Should You Or Shouldn’t You? & My Recent DNF Mini-Reviews

    The DNF Game | Should You Or Shouldn’t You? & My Recent DNF Mini-Reviews DNF – the acronym that means Did Not Finish. It’s such a powerful acronym to use in this book community and continues to baffle intellectuals on whether you should actually do it or not… Can you imagine, reading these cool things called books and currently hating it…what can you do? what should I do? What’s your next move? It’s almost become a deadly game. Will it offend someone? The author? – YOU?

    Aurora Rising Book Review It’s sad to say that I expected better but I did. The hype – there was so much hype! I was SO confident I would love this because Jay and Amie have never let me down; alas, this book was, unfortunately, a great disappointment for me.   Goodreads Blurb   From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure. The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions.

    The Priory of The Orange Tree Book Review

    The Priory of The Orange Tree Book Review When people start comparing a book to Game of Thrones, you can either get sceptical or you get on board — my fellow readers, it’s time to get on board (if you haven’t already). Okay, YES. I’m super late to the hype with this review, I’m super late in general but oh my god, this book was actually just as amazing as I heard from other reviewers. It was definitely a hyped up book with more positive than mixed reviews and I can actually see why they have mixed reviews, I can see both sides but, I still freaking loved it and boy…
