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 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!
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!
Jebi is an artist, and all they want to do is paint. Not get dragged into a revolutionary plot, steal a dragon and fall in love. And yet. I love this sci-fi epic. Rating: 4.5 stars
I had high expectations for this witchy, feminist book and Alix E. Harrow smashed every single one of them. This book is everything to me and I cannot stop thinking about it. Rating: 5 stars
As a self-confessed Christina Henry addict, I obviously ordered this one straight away. But when I got the opportunity to read an eARC, I leapt at it. This was a little different from the others, not a retelling but its own creepy story of witches, woods and murders, and I loved it. Rating: 4 stars!
