El’s Favourites!

I shout about books I love an awful lot, but I thought here would be a great place to highlight some of my absolute favourites!

REVIEW | Cute Mutants Volume 2: Young, Gifted and Queer | SJ Whitby

I love these superqueeroes, and this is absolutely my favourite discovery of 2020. I adore this series and each book is better than the one before. I reviewed Cute Mutants Vol 1: Mutant Pride on the blog, here, and I’ve got a review of Cute Mutants Vol 3: The Demon Queer Saga coming out soon! These are an insta buy for me, and I recommend them highly.

Rating: 5 stars!

BLOG TOUR REVIEW | Cute Mutants Volume 1: Mutant Pride | SJ Whitby

There’s an outside chance that this might be my perfect book. Sapphics, mutants, a sentient bat and Pillow. If you like funny, nerdy prose and superqueero characters, this is your perfect book too. Not to mention look at that cover, all three volumes (two released and one upcoming) have covers as beautiful as the content.

Rating: 5 stars

REVIEW | The Invisible Life of Addie Larue | V.E. Schwab

The Invisible Life of Addie Larue, release date October 6th 2020, is my first Schwab book and okay, okay. I’m hooked. Definitely need to read more of her books, but first it’s time to talk about this gorgeous book about life, legacy and the many reasons we do ๐Ÿ‘ not ๐Ÿ‘ make ๐Ÿ‘ deals ๐Ÿ‘ with ๐Ÿ‘ devils ๐Ÿ‘.

The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart (Blog Tour Review)

I honestly have been so hyped for this book for so long that I couldn’t believe it when I made it onto the blog tour! An established f/f relationship, bone magic, travelling islands and a magical creature with personality? Sign me the hell up. I can’t wait to get my physical copy of this book after release date, because I think this might be even better on the reread.

Rating: 4.5 stars

A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik (Review)

Honestly? I was predisposed to love this book. A magic school thatโ€™s out to kill students? A dark witch as a main character with untapped powers of death and destruction? Rivals to awkward not-quite-dating? It has all the things Iโ€™d pile into my dream book, written by one of my favourite authors and to top it all off the main character shares my name! This book was made for me.

Rating: 5 stars!

The First Sister by Linden A Lewis (Review)

I was recommended this book by a friend, as it had somehow completely missed my radar, and Iโ€™m so glad that they pointed it out to me because I adored this book. So much so that I finished my review copy and bought a hardback a few days later, because I know Iโ€™m going to want to hear the rest of First Sister and Litoโ€™s adventures.
