The Late Great Me by Sandra Scoppettone

A book about alcoholism is a definitely an odd choice for me – but I have wanted to read this book for a long time and I am really glad that I finally managed to get my hands on a copy. This was not an easy book by any stretch of the imagination (it was downright difficult to get through at times actually) but it was definitely a worthwhile, thought-provoking read. […]

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George

I love fairy tale retellings and I can clearly recall picking up Princess of the Midnight Ball a few years ago specifically because I saw it was a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. The only other interpretation of this story that I have read was Juliet Marillier’s excellent Wildwood Dancing, which is a personal favourite. That may be the reason I put off reading this one for so long, fearing […]

I stumbled across the first book and on a whim decided to purchase and read it. I wondered if it would live […]

Review: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

I honestly cannot believe it has taken me so long to read The Winner’s Curse. It has been sitting on my Kindle since April last year and, to be completely honest, I am kicking myself for not having read it sooner. I have seen many favourable reviews and I had an inkling I would enjoy it, but for some reason I kept putting off reading it. The Winner’s Curse is […]

Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb

To say I was excited about Fool’s Assassin would be a complete understatement. I have been a massive fan of Robin Hobb’s The Realm of the Elderlings saga for years. It is my favourite fantasy series and Fitz and The Fool are two characters very dear to my heart. I felt heartbroken at the ending of Fool’s Fate – I couldn’t believe after journeying through so many ups and downs with these […]
