The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

I loved Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys (see my glowing review here) and I had high hopes for the sequel even though at the same time I also dreaded that it may not live up to my inordinately high expectations. I am pleased that not only did it manage to exceed all of my expectations, I loved the book even more than the first (even if I wished to get […]

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I am not sure how Maggie Stiefvater does it but every time I read one of her books I fall a little bit more in love with her writing.

But the real question is does […]

The Devil’s Reprise by Karina Halle

The Devil’s Reprise is the eagerly anticipated sequel to The Devil’s Metal, a book which managed to both thrill me and chill me to my very core; the blending of scares and emotional gut-punches making it one of my favourite reads of this year. I have been anxiously awaiting the release of The Devil’s Reprise with some trepidation – I loved the first book so much I feared it would never live up to […]
