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.
I got this one for Christmas (thanks Mols) and ended up marathoning it in a few days. It was so much fun, I thoroughly enjoyed it and will absolutely be reading more of T. Kingfisher's work in the future. Rating: 5 stars!
For old fans and newcomers alike, The Rise of Kyoshi is the perfect book for you. It's sapphic, amazingly visual and expands on the Avatar universe in a wonderful way. I highly recommend it if you love badass female characters even half as much as I do. Rating: 5 stars!
The Forward Collection is a fantastic collection of novellas, all fascinating and complex science-fiction stories reimagining the future. I listened to all of them on audible using kindle unlimited to get them for free in both audio and ebook. The audiobooks are all fantastically narrated and I highly recommend.
I was absolutely heartbroken when I didn't get an ARC of this one (et tu Hachette) and so as soon as this one released I listened to the entire audiobook in one sitting whilst doing a particularly evil jigsaw. As long as it still counts as one sitting if I had to keep pausing it to pace in and out of the living room to yell about how stressed I was over this incredible Greek mythology based story. Rating: 5 stars!
I'm a sucker for a retelling, and this Romeo and Juliet retelling in 1920s Shanghai was getting so much hype that I couldn't stay away. It was worth every bit of hype and I can't wait for the sequel now, even if I am full of fear for the end of this story! Rating: 4 stars!
