    We Are Blood & Thunder by Kesia Lupo Book Review

    We are Blood & Thunder by Kesia Lupo Book Review I am SO glad to finally review this book, I’ve definitely had plenty of time to think about it and look over all the tabs I put in while reading it. I’m not sure whether this got a lot of hype or not because I wasn’t active on social media around the time it was published a couple of months ago but thank you so much to Bloomsbury Publishing for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review because I really enjoyed it way more than I expected it to.   Goodreads Blurb:   In a sealed-off city,…

    This Splintered Silence Book Review

    This Splintered Silence Book Review As a sci-fi lover, I basically jumped at the chance to read this book but it’s taken me forever to actually review it. A huge thanks to HarperTeen/HarperCollins Aus for kindly sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review. I honestly wish more YA sci-fi’s were published.   Goodreads Blurb:   Lindley Hamilton has been the leader of the space station Lusca since every first-generation crew member on board, including her mother, the commander, were killed by a deadly virus. Lindley always assumed she’d captain the Lusca one day, but she never thought that day would come so soon. And she never thought…

    The Wicked King Book Review

    The Wicked King Book Review   Well well well, wasn’t this book SUCH A SURPRISE. I’m still pretty annoyed – you know what, no, I’m still pissed, cause this book tricked me to no end like a real evil faerie actually would.   Goodreads Blurb:   You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring. The first lesson is to make yourself strong. After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting…

    Hello hello!

    Enchantée Book Review

    I see a YA book with a French title, I want. ICYMI, I speak French (mad skillzz mwahaha) so just the title and cover intrigued me and then to find out that it’s a historical fantasy based in 18th Century Paris? Um yes, sign me up. So yeah, I really enjoyed this book. Read on for my review 🙂   Goodreads Blurb:   Paris in 1789 is a labyrinth of twisted streets, filled with beggars, thieves, revolutionaries—and magicians… When smallpox kills her parents, Camille Durbonne must find a way to provide for her frail, naive sister while managing her volatile brother. Relying on petty magic—la magie ordinaire—Camille painstakingly transforms scraps…

    A Curse So Dark & Lonely Book Review

    A Curse So Dark & Lonely   This was such an anticipated read for 2019 and I’m so glad as to how fast I could get through it considering how busy my schedule has been the last week or so!   Goodreads Blurb:   Fall in love, break the curse. It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast…

    This Mortal Coil Book Review

    I’ve been wanting to read this for so long and I read the first 30 pages about 10 times (when a book is on your currently reading for 2 months but you keep not getting around to actually reading it) and boy did this surprise me when I FINALLY read it all. My inner science nerd is thriving off this series!   Goodreads Blurb:   When a lone soldier, Cole, arrives with news of Lachlan Agatta’s death, all hope seems lost for Catarina. Her father was the world’s leading geneticist, and humanity’s best hope of beating a devastating virus. Then, hidden beneath Cole’s genehacked enhancements she finds a message of…

    The Boneless Mercies Book Review

    The blurb of The Bonesless Mercies had me hooked onto this book and I had to request it. Standalone fantasy with female mercenaries? It sounds so bad-arse and ready to thunder.   Goodreads Blurb:   They called us the Mercies, or sometimes the Boneless Mercies. They said we were shadows, ghosts, and if you touched our skin we dissolved into smoke … Frey, Ovie, Juniper, and Runa are Boneless Mercies – death-traders, hired to kill quickly, quietly and mercifully. It is a job for women, and women only. Men will not do this sad, dark work. Frey has no family, no home, no fortune, and yet her blood sings a…

    Kingdom of Ash Book Review

    The end. IT’S THE END. The crying will never end. Someone give me tissues and play more Bring Me The Horizon tracks. Disclaimer: This review is SPOILER-FREE, (except for obvious spoilers from the previous books, so BEWARE), so basically expect a bunch of mush that makes no sense. The reason why I’ve been doing mini-reviews for this series: I CAN’T ENGLISH REVIEW WELL from the shookness generally. It’s extremely hard and I can’t believe I’m doing a full review for this book that had me fully shook after nearly imploding when writing that Muse of Nightmares review. It’s so hard. Either way, I’m not going to be analysing a whole lot with…

    Tower of Dawn Book Mini-Review

    I was actually pretty reluctant to read this one because I was so impatient to get to Kingdom of Ash but BOY WAS I WRONG. This was book was definitely vital to the whole series for the final book, and I was shocked as to what was revealed.   Goodreads Blurb:   In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire. Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered,…
