Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I was mulling over my review for Wayward Son when it occurred to me that I had never actually reviewed Carry On (for shame!) and oh, how appropriate that I was just now listening to a playlist on Spotify and Bohemian Rhapsody came on (carry on, carry on…) most fortuitous! It’s definitely a sign. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is a book that completely grabbed me by the lapels and […]

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!

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Natalia Jaster’s writing? It’s actually hard to believe Touch was her debut novel.

Was it worth the wait? Hell yes! my review of The Wicked King Now, I read this immediately upon its release in January but I wanted to re-read it again before posting […]

The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather

The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather is a rare beast indeed. A book that weaves themes of magic and dystopia – two of my favourite genres so rarely mixed together. A young girl called Kenadee experiences a trauma as a child. Her elder brother Eli was discovered to have magic. He is taken away (possibly killed) by the evil President (think President Snow from the Hunger Games but even more diabolical). […]
