Tempt by Natalia Jaster

Holy smokes Batman – this was a scorching read! *fans self* It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Natalia Jaster’s books but this one might just be my favourite yet (and that’s a massive compliment because I totally adore all of her other works!) I loved absolutely everything about Tempt: the characters, the setting, the story… it was sheer perfection. Hades and Persephone retellings are totally a […]

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

I have been positively giddy with anticipation waiting for Wayward Son; Carry On is one of my all-time favourites and I couldn’t wait for more Simon and Baz content.

Torn by Natalia Jaster

I am very lucky to be on Natalia Jaster’s ARC team but I honestly wasn’t expecting to get the chance to read Torn ahead of its release date (June 20th) because for some silly reason, I had it in my head that I was only on the team for her Foolish Kingdoms series! So when this little beauty found its way into my inbox last month I may have screeched […]

Touch by Natalia Jaster

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Natalia Jaster’s writing? It’s actually hard to believe Touch was her debut novel. It contains her usual lyrical prose but is also very polished and well put together. I can usually spot an author’s debut novel (even if I am unaware it was such). There is often a certain rawness to it, especially if I read it after devouring their later works, […]
