4 stars. This incredible debut has been on my radar forever, and it absolutely lived up to all the hype I'd heard. This is a strong start to a fantasy series and I'm already so impatient for the next book! Not to mention, look at that gorgeous cover.
5 stars! This book is so hard to talk about that I've been sitting on reviewing this for a month now. Oops. I honestly kept coming back to this but I couldn't find the words to explain how this book gutted me in the best ways possible. Really you just have to read it.
I'm so excited to be on the blog tour for this incredible, sapphic dark fantasy novel. I knew I was going to love this sleeping beauty retelling, following the villainous rise of protagonist Alyce - and following her falling in love with Aurora. And I was right. Rating: 5 stars!
This YA thriller releases in a couple of weeks, and it's one to look out for if you enjoy books like Karen M. McManus's One of Us is Lying series or A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson. The Last Girl is also publishing in the US under 'The Mary Shelley Club', a title I love just as much! Rating: 4 stars!
I seem to have a niche and specific love for historical fantasy with strong female main characters, witchy themes and watery settings. And All the Murmuring Bones is a fantastic example of all of those things. I loved this one so much. Rating: 4 stars.
I got the rest of the Wayfarers series for Christmas 2020 (late to the party, I know) and ended up reading them all over the course of a few days. So I was really excited to get a review copy of The Galaxy, and the Ground Within. I highly recommend the audiobooks for this whole series, they're excellently narrated and such comfort listens. Rating: 4 stars.
This horror thriller set in a boarding school with dual timelines was a highly anticipated release of mine, so I was so excited to get one of the gorgeous ARCs. I adored this book and I can't believe it's finally out in the UK next week! If you like sapphics, twisting storylines and creepy horror, be sure to pick this one up! Rating: 5 stars!
I had to pick this up for the badass female MC and the pirate ship energy. Not to mention that tagline 'Trader. Fighter. Survivor.' I love it. This wasn't quite the book I was hoping for, but it was definitely good enough to get me reading the final book in the duology when it releases. Rating: 3.5 stars
I was honestly blown away by this graphic novel. I read Sheets and really enjoyed it (I rated it 4 stars) and was expecting a similar experience with Delicates. Instead I got something even more impossibly beautiful and poignant. I cried at the end of this graphic novel, and I can't wait to get a physical copy in my hands so I can read it all over again.
I love this little novella and if you like disaster lesbians, poisonous gardens and mysterious, monstrous sicknesses, this is a must read. I also highly recommend The Luminous Dead by the same author - and The Death of Jane Lawrence, coming in October. Rating: 4 stars.
