Since I finished reading this book, I haven't stopped thinking about it. I can't wait to get a finished copy so I can have an excuse to read it again. This is a very very weird fantasy with Linsey Miller's usual incredible character writing. It's dark and clever and fun with a cunning ace protagonist. Rating: 4 stars
A lesbian princess/priestess-in-disguise slow burn overthrow an empire? Sign me up. I couldn't resist this book, and Tasha Suri didn't disappoint with THE JASMINE THRONE, a complicated and messy fantasy full of political machinations and characters that are easy to love and hard to trust. Rating: 4 stars.
an invite for the blog tour for SUBJECT TWENTY ONE, and I signed up because I love sci-fi and the cover is pretty. Picked it up one evening to read a few chapters and get a feel for the writing and I read the entire thing in two sittings - I only stopped to sleep. I can't wait to get my hands on THE HIDDEN BASE, and I'm glad I don't have to wait long to read the sequel. Rating: 4 stars!
The whole CHRONICLES OF THE BITCH QUEEN series rocketed near the top of my favourite fantasy series as soon as I started THE WOLF OF OREN-YARO, and it took me over a month to read THE DRAGON OF JIN-SAYENG because I wasn't ready for Tali and Khine's journey to be over. Rating: 4.5 stars
I adored Kalynn Bayron's debut, CINDERELLA IS DEAD, and so I had to request THIS POISON HEART when I saw that gorgeous cover. If you like Black girl magic, Little Shop of Horrors and gothic atmospheres, this is the perfect book. Rating: 5 stars!
This isn't my usual genre, but I loved THE HENNA WARS by Adiba Jaigirdar so much that I just had to give this one a go. I'm glad that I did, it was everything I loved about THE HENNA WARS, with fake dating (one of my favourite tropes) thrown into the mix. Rating: 4.5 stars.
I totally requested this book based off of a tweet from the author where they mentioned 'pansexual bloodmage'. That was enough for me initially, and after seeing the cover reveal, I was sold. This book absolutely didn't disappoint me, and I'm so glad that I decided to pick it up! A.M. Strickland is going to be a new must-read author for me, I think. Rating: 5 stars!
The Martian is undeniably one of my favourite books, so I was so hyped for Project Hail Mary. As soon as the audiobook was available, I jumped straight into it, knowing I loved The Martian's audiobook so much. And Project Hail Mary? It did not disappoint. This is going on the favourite book list for sure. Rating: 5 stars.
This book was, in every way, nothing like my usual picks. I requested it because I loved both of the books I've read by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. And I adored this just as much. Everyone absolutely needs to read this, I loved the drama and the scandal and the glittering beauty of the season. It was incredible, and I had to tell everyone all about it while I was reading because I just couldn't believe what was happening. Rating: 4.5 stars
I actually had this one pre-ordered long before I got accepted for the eARC, because Christina Henry is one of my auto-buy authors and I was waiting impatiently for Waterstones to bring out a signed edition of Near the Bone to match the rest of my series. Rating 4 stars.
