Fawkes – Book Review

I’ve heard only good things about Nadine Brandes‘s writing, so I bought a copy of Fawkes when I found it on sale. This isn’t my usual genre–I don’t typically read historical fantasy. Yet, something about the familiarity of the story of Guy Fawkes appealed to me. I call it historical fantasy because this book includes […]

Rise – Book Review

This was probably one of my most anticipated sequels of 2019. I picked up Rule from the library earlier this year, and really loved getting to know Zofi, Akeylah, and Ren. I couldn’t wait to read how their stories ended. The Blurb Sisters Akeylah, Ren, and Zofi are all a step closer to their dying […]

Book Review – Furyborn

Furyborn by Claire Legrand was one of those random books I picked from the library, based solely on its cover (and what a cover it is). I wasn’t disappointed. Lovers of YA and Sarah J. Maas’s writing style will probably adore this book. It’s action-packed features female characters who take no prisoners, and a delicious […]

Published!

People of the world, it’s finally here. After five (official) drafts, almost five years, two titles, all the sweat and tears, extreme keyboard bashing, lots of swearing, squeezing in moments to write while also being a mother, general anxiety, crying because none of it worked, celebrating because it wasn’t so bad, threatening to toss the […]

Review – Six of Crows Duology

I have an intense book hangover and I’m struggling to get over it. Let me tell you why (and this might spoil my entire review in the second sentence) but Six of Crows was wonderful, then Crooked Kingdom was next level epic. The problem with Crooked Kingdom is that every book you pick up to […]

Rule – Book Review

Here’s the story. To spice up my reading life, I try to pick a random book by an author I’d never heard of whenever I’m at the library. I usually aim for two or three from a to be read list I keep on my phone, but let fate decide the last book. That’s how […]

Book Review – A Court of Frost and Starlight

I was pretty excited to find this one at the library, since I’d read some mixed reviews and didn’t want to buy it until I knew for sure if I liked it or not. Especially not at around $18 a copy. I’m glad I did that. This will be a spoiler free review, except where […]

Book Review – Clouds and Earth

I was excited to get lost in the pages of this book. The protagonist of Sayde Scarlett‘s Clouds and Earth is a former military operative, tech-wiz, and all round bad-arse. The book is delivered in third omniscient, is 242 pages long, and follows multiple point of view characters. ***DISCLAIMER – I was gifted a review […]

Review – Shadow & Bone Trilogy

I’d never heard of Tsarpunk before a friend recommended this series and asked me if I’d ever heard of Tsarpunk. Which I hadn’t. 🙂 Now that I have, I’m glad to know the term. There will be spoilers in this post. This is your stop here warning if you’d like to read these books spoiler […]

Book Review – Twelve Kings in Sharakhai

I picked up this book in hardcover for $7–what a steal. I’d never heard of Bradley P. Beaulieu before this, but I’m really glad a book on sale introduced me to his work. Twelve Kings in Sharakhai is the first instalment in The Song of Shattered Sands trilogy. The story is set in the desert, […]

My Thoughts – A Court of Thorns & Roses Trilogy

It’s been a long while since I devoured books like I devoured these ones. The series has been recommended to me a few times, but I never got around to reading them. Last week, Amazon had a special. And, well. Here we are. It doesn’t hurt that this series is New Adult (it certainly isn’t […]

A New Title

It’s no secret that I have no idea what I’m doing. I know zero about writing movements, picking a trendy title, or putting something on a novel’s cover that will attract the right audience. Luckily I know people who know these things. 🙂 I had a Skype session with my wonderful editor and mentor, Nerine […]

Book Review – The Strange

Now, by this time you know how I feel about this series. I’ve reviewed both The Babylon Eye and The Real, and I’ve been waiting for this book. The wait has paid off. You know that feeling when the first book in a series is ALL CAPS FANTASTIC, but the second is just meh and […]
